Re: Moldy Pu'erh!!!

I opened up my pumidor tonight, Is your Pumidor a closed plastic box? If so, I highly recommend not using such a box for long term storing, especially if the cakes are also humidified in the box. I would suggest a bamboo basket, or an unglazed clay jar, that some air can circulate. Strongly disagre...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Been going to town on this 2008 Taste of HK cake from Yeeon. I know it just got in, and I really should let it rest but I’ve already had it 2 times. Has a really pleasing latte and gingerbread flavor.

Re: Yee On Tea Co. - 義安茶莊

It's been a while since I had the time to brew tea, but I've been drinking the best taste ripe puerh over christmas, and it's a nice daily drinker. Quite simple taste, but very pleasant.

I am the heretic who drinks Gaoshan from my Duanni. Same reasons why I equally love to use my Kobiwako for these teas. Body, give me body! Aroma is superficial :lol:
One more reason to drink puer ;)
