Both from JAS. The Green is for raw the brown/red for ripe. The Greens a touch better pourer and although I wanted BIG when I bought them (used to green tea... steaping 100ml at a time seemed ludicrous to me) is a better size, so it's my favorite. A bottle of aftershave fell on the red from about 2 ft up... amazingly the pot survived... but the lid was broke in about eight pieces. Crazy glue and a lot of time picking through my carpet later, it is one piece again. Still, if one of these pots happens to ever arrive broken but with a good lid over there, remember me Stephen.
Also... I'm on my last Beng of the raws... its the Mengku 1974, also my favorite so far... I go to reorder... and you are sold out. Curse you!
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.

The red one's a looker, just a bit big (more desk-wise than volumewise to be honest). It's really well-made. The green's very basic and compact. The perfect user pot with a charm of its own.
I use this one for my Ten Ren Kings oolong.
It fooled me. From the link I see that it was made to look like an older pot. Nicely done. And what do you typically use it for?

Many nice pots in this thread. Makes me want to go shopping!
That Frog-on-Turtle pot made me wonder if there was some old story about turtles and frogs living together. I searched around but did not find anything specific. But someone snapped this interesting photo where all three were cooperating with each other. Full story of the photo blogged here.
