Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

XG 05 T8653-1 I’ve been drinking this one pretty much every day for the last couple weeks. It’s a decent tea but in its current state I’d say it’s a tier below the FT version. Less TCM incense and a bit more bitterness. I’m guessing this one will be at a sweet spot in another 5-10yrs so it’s a serio...

Re: Mei leaf

I think it’s very interesting how many forum members are reacting here. Almost as if they were angry with MeiLeaf. Still...only 1 person mentioned anything remotely specific about their tea. I’ve heard a lot of suggestions for Seven Cups inparticualr the Biluochun. I have been unimpressed by SevenC...

Re: Chaozhou/Shantou

It must be CZ season because I just got a new one too. Unfortunately this one is pretty badly damaged. I’m guessing this ones Qing era but I too find it hard to estimate age of CZ pots so it could be somewhat newer.

Re: some teapots for sale

Bok If you try to sell them for over 1000EUR ... I can try to sell as much as I want. It is my price. However, my actions are more altruistic, without any benefit to me. We are talking that your allegations make only harm, about items that I didn't sell/list here. Anyone that sells pots on this for...

Has anyone ever tried using an immersion heater? This just occured to me to be the ultimate in portability. Also looks like a good way to start a fire :lol:

Re: CNNP Tea ID help

I think Cloud mentioned on his blog that there is only one official purple sky cake which should be a 80-90’s ripe tea. This stamp has been used on a bunch of random fake teas. Is this tea from BTTC? Looks like one they used to sell. Yes, I've only read about the 80-90's 8592 with the purple sky ma...

Re: some teapots for sale

I noticed you put up a few more pots on eBay. Not sure who told you those are ROC zhuni but they look 1990’s. The azure pot has a ball filter so obviously cant be 80yrs old. I wouldn’t have bothered commenting but you listed them for $1100 and $2300.

Re: Chicago

@pedant

That’s it. I stopped by last time I was in Chicago but wasn’t feeling well so I didn’t stay for tea. Seems like a decent place to have a pot compared to the few other spots that exist. Probably not the best city for tea.

Re: Chicago

There is one place in Evanston that @Emmett recommend. Worth siting down for tea but prices for puerh cakes was high so I wouldn’t buy any there.
