Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

LeoFox I'm reaching for some Rougui right after finishing this post! The past few days have been a journey through assorted traditional toasted TGY and aged oolongs from Taiwan... Interestingly, while sipping thru a pot of 2015 Dancong yesterday I kept getting orchid flavours that kept bringing me ...

Re: puerh: to air or not to air?

karma Yes we live in humid conditions generally but I don't open up a tea and just leave it on the bench unless it's some extreme rescue job I'm attempting... Teas are broken up and conditioned in porcelain or metal tins and if having those in the storage conditions are helpful then so be it... My ...

Re: 4 Signs of a Real Yixing Teapot

What about the tea?? How do all these things do the tea in or out? Good for tea or not? I just tend to buy the pots that resonate with nice clay that makes.my eyes go yes! No one cares about clay effect tea. Except for the western audience and very few people in Asia. Certainly no one in Yixing. Th...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking
