Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2003 Hong Kong Henry “Conscientious Prescription” 7542 from TWL Just what I needed. Nice dark notes, herbaceous wood, incense. Smooth and easy drinking with a calming energy. I mislabeled the jar last month and drank about 3 sessions of this pretty heavy handedly, thinking it was the 2008 Dayi 8582...

Sipping once again the 2014 Yibang gushu mao cha 250gms sample ( :o ) from Les Thes Terre de Ciel in France. I get the feeling this ' little sample' will last quite a while ( ;) ).

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Working on 2016 Yunnan Sourcing autumn Yi Bang sheng. Although very aromatic and with a lightly sweet taste, it just reminds me why I prefer teas from spring: autumn teas tend to have more subdued flavour for me at least.

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

As for Norway and taxes, the VAT for tea is only 12% (compared to 25% for most other products). It used to be the case that if you ordered something of less than $35 value no VAT or other taxes/fees would be applied when importing (and since many sellers tend to write an artificially low value on t...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I love Yiwu teas! For semi-aged and older, I typically look for ones that give me a comfortable Qi, and Wistaria's generally do that for me. Fresher shengs are more interesting flavor-wise. I find Wangong to be more up front with its fragrance and sweetness. It's been forever since I had Bohetang, ...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2012 Chen Sheng Hao Golden Ban Zhang bought from King Tea in China. :D What is your take on it? I've tried a few of the higher ends CSH Ban Zhang products and have found them to vary quite a bit. This Ban Zhange pu'er is fine but I definitely prefer their top of the range although these are quite e...
