Re: Drinking tea at night

How many people here drink tea in the evening sometimes, at the expense of a few hours of sleep? ;) I know that after 3pm my tea consumption should be stopped, otherwise I won't go to sleep around 10:30pm. But lately, I find myself coming home from work at 6:30 and firing up the kettle for some she...

Re: What is this in my tea

That is char from the wok processing. It is the small parts that are burnt during processing.
Edit, the beige is probably small parts of the tea leaf that mat have broken off when you picked the tea out. I wouldn't think it is a problem though.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2016 Teadontlie Excellent tea. The depth is coming out on this one. I did my usual 10grams to 100ml of water just off boiling and one rinse. The florality aroma of this one comes early. Sweetness almsxt like a gum taste comes in early. The later steeps lose much of the florality and the tea gets hea...

Has anyone tried hai lang haos premium ripes? Particularly any of the ones sold on yunnan sourcing, the laomane, jun ai, or yi shan mo. What did you think of them?
Those 2 Bulang ripe bricks are nice. The as you like ripe and the others are decent productions as well.

Re: Puerh vendor topic

Approach with caution. I would sample first maybe. The older stuff can be very hard to identify if you weren't around when it was produced to learn what is what. For that kind of $ you could get some good stuff from a couple of other vendors. W2T and Essence of Tea have some excellent teas for near ...

Re: There's no point in rating teas

I review somewhat but as for numericals it has been a while since I put a number on a tea. I used to never drink sheng and then I found some that agreed with me allowing me to branch out as well. I find I change from year to year as I explore new regions.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Also do people here brew these small bits of their puer or leave them off? I always keep them out because I feel like they will just make the brew more bitter. 7E563209-7DC7-4867-8871-345797EF76BC.jpeg I use a soil sifter for bonsai trees to salvage the big bits of leaf. They go into a jar as my ho...

I had a puer from Yiwu. I forgot the name of the village, but it started with a G and it’s higher up on Yiwu Mountain.

Does anyone know what the village is called? The puer was really good.
Gaoshan? Or Gua Feng Zhai?

Re: Pumidor discussion

My apartment is normally 80F, but 27% humidity in the winter (according to my new hygrometer). Putting Boveda packs into crocks did not work, the packs are already dried out 2 weeks later. The crocks are too porous. Putting your puer into crocks is a bad idea based on my experience, I regret follow...
