Great Tease from a Hong Kong's Vendor....

A complete stack of 80's Guang Yun Gong Beengs, company with Hun Yins, 80's 8582s. 2 Cupboards full of 20's-80's zhu ni and other fun pots.
Also my pick of a 30's Zhu Ni pot. What do you think, did I picked a good one?

That's a beautiful pot. What will you use it for?

As someone who lives in earthquake country, it sends shivers down my spine to see so many aged yixing sitting on open shelves.

that is beautiful. i've never seen so many lined up together.

I see those 80s bings are plastic wrapped. Are they already at their peak so their fermentation is intentionally stopped?

toki said...

Steven, For fine raw bings. enclosed aging (plastic wrap or caddy storage) can refine the fermentation. The period of storage might increase, so does the quality and the complexity of the tea.

This depends on the collector/vendor intension. To have a greater aged bing or to gain profit with 5-20 yrs.

Very classic pear-shaped zhu ni! Nice!

Ditto on what Davelcorp said above *shivers*.

MarshalN said...

Are those real old Hongyin? Because they look like the "revival" Hongyin -- the paper look too crisp and new.

toki said...

1 wrapped at the bottom is 50's, top are later.
And there are a full stack unopened 50's at the very bottom..... $$$$$

MarshalN said...

Hmmm, a full stack of unopened Hongyin? Hmmmm. I get really suspicious these days of these claims.

The pot looks nice. Do you know what was brewed in it before?

toki said...

no idea.... I just put some phone numbers on your blog.
