I give it another 15 seconds :p

Lol, you guys, I MUST resist this time, believe me!!

boychik said

too big!!! you dont need it. You have tetsubin, i saw pics.

yyz said

You can do it TeaFairy!

AllanK said

Tea Fairy, if you can resist you are stronger than me. I couldn’t resist a new Yixing tonight.

Haha! Thanks for the support you guys!!

(Boychik, you’re right, I do have…3 of them.)

Allan, I saw it, it’s really pretty and unsual.

boychik said

three tetsubin are enough! im not talking abt Yixing though….

Lol, I appreciate you NOT including yixing!

boychik said

Good Yixing is welcomed anytime;)

I think thats a pretty decent price personally

Oh, Morebloodytea, it is very decent!!! But not so much when you just purchased 5 yixing clay pots within only two weeks!!!

I just bought a new Yixing from one of my favorite Amazon sellers. Beautiful green pot, great price. I have bought several pots from them all great.

I also saw this one which was slightly more expensive but I didn’t buy it.

Both are quite nice. I see a few I’d like to have. :)

AllanK said

Ufingo is a great seller. They do not sell one of a kind pieces but what I have bought from them is great. I have these as well.

The large on has appreciated in value! I paid less.

Very nice! It is hard for me to resist purchasing, but I don’t think I am quite ready for Yixing yet. Soon though!

I love the 2nd one. Like Aladin’s lamp!

Oh, me too the second one is hot!!!

AllanK said

Yes, to season that one I had to use a pot big enough for 20 quarts of chili. It is seasoned for Shou Puerh.

AllanK said

I have just found out they are out of the green one. What do you people think of the yellow one at the bottom of the page.

Sarsonator said

Well I like the yellow, but I do like the green a bit better. But I’m a greens/blues kinda girl. If they won’t receive more green and you really like the style, then I say go for yellow!

AllanK said

They have stopped making the green one. I searched Amazon, Aliexpress, and EBay for something in that size and price that was better and didn’t find one. While I am bummed out I can’t get the green one I decided to get the yellow one.

boychik said

wow. how big is it?

AllanK said

When I load the page in Google Chrome the translation indicates somewhere between 200ML and 400ML. But it doesn’t look much bigger than 200 ML.

AllanK said

I expect the final price would end up being about $50 or $60 including the shipping.

AllanK said

This is apparently on sale today only. You snooze you lose. I am waiting for an invoice from Taobao Tube so I can buy this thing for such a good price. Tomorrow it will be $100.

Nice! I wish TaoBao didn’t confuse me. I’d purchase this in a heartbeat (if I knew how much…):

AllanK said

$65 plus shipping and fees.

AllanK said

Taobao Tube was too slow to respond so I went with Taobao Focus. I will have to take the shipping risk but I got it for $40 plus shipping, not bad when it sells for $100, that’s without fees.

AllanK said

About $65 plus you would have to pay fees and shipping from a Taobao Proxy or Agent. I don’t think you can order directly without at least knowing Chinese. Go onto www.taobaotube.com. Use Google Chrome. It will translate for you.

AllanK said

Meant to post that above, ah well its late.

No worries. It is late for me as well and I can’t be bothered, as much as I wish I could be. :)

I’ve been trying not to lust after any of this teaware…but then I saw this one.

http://www.yunnansourcing.us/store/index.php?id_product=245&controller=product

I keep opening up the page and looking at it.

It is very pretty! It’s only August but I’ve made my holiday wishlist. ;)

Oh yes to that pot. I love the color combination and the flower design on the lid! And I’m not even that much of a yellow person

MzPriss said

I am both happy and sad that I know about this murata site now

Omg…they have a purple cast iron pot.

yyz said

mj I’m not a huge yellow person either but it works for this pot.

MzPrizz Sorry about that;). What caught your eye?

TTF it is a nice colour, but perhaps see conversation above:)

Those are beautiful. I love Japanese teapots. I have two traditional Japanese teapots. One i think is Tpkoname Ware similar to this one but not quite.

yyz said

I love how they also have teaware under arts and crafts listed as the art of tea ceremony.

mj said

I did see the matching pot! They’re so cute :) Your dd probably needs both hehe

mj said

So boychik, were you thinking that you might want one of the mugs for your dd? Or did you want one for her and one for you?

boychik said
