Re: Tillerman Tea

I have had very bad tea stored out of vacuum from state side vendors - from sour and stale oolongs to roasted oolong that has cigarette stink compared to same tea, same harvest but in vacuum packs direct from farmer. Because of this, I mostly swore off buying oolong from state side companies who rep...

Re: Tillerman Tea

LeoFox, we're now getting into some pretty subjective territory; what you call deterioration, others might call development. My own view is that a quality unroasted gaoshan should remain "healthy" for a good six months. It won't taste exactly the same at the end of that period as it did at the outs...

Re: Tillerman Tea

LeoFox, the gaoshan tea i receive comes in vacuum sealed 150g packages . When I ship an order it is in a resealable compostable pouch with an oxygen absorber. I am sure you have tested the stability of your tea in this container closure system - but can you share how long you believe the quality of...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

After the awful yancha, it is such a pleasure to drink wonderful roasted oolong from Taiwan at a great price point. Today, an old favorite: muzha TGY from eco cha priced ~0.25/g. (Just slightly more expensive than OWT's throat shredder rougui) Based on vendor description, this is about 3/4 tgy and 1...

Maybe we should move the hot temp discussion to a new thread. The link between hot temp and esophageal cancer is strong and verified across multiple studies.
