    The design could be Wen Dan(grapefruit,pomelo) inspired.

    I’ve been following your great blog for awhile now. I live in China and have been looking for some old school lightly roasted tieguanyin (green leaf with brownish edge like you described in an earlier post). I was wondering if you know of any online sources available to someone who can read Chinese or if you know of any shops in Guangzhou or Hong Kong? Are there any reputable taobao sources you have experience with? Cheers

      There are some shops in Hong Kong that does it. In fact all the older teashops in Hong Kong sell older style TGY because that’s what the locals normally prefer. I don’t know about sources on Taobao.
