Re: Yixing

@Darbotek, you'll probably notice things have gone up. You might have to pay 50 cents this time.

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

slipshod and Balthazar , once again, you have been extremely helpful. Thank you big time. Slipshod, like you, I've been dinged by DHL--duty and other charges--and haven't ordered tea from overseas for going on a year. I don't recall ever paying duty (I'm in Canada) for China Post parcels. Hence, in...

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

As I'm on the threshold of a journey into An Hua dark tea, I'm trying to get some of the terms straight. In response to my Hei Cha question above, Balthazar used some of them. Please feel free to correct me, anyone, if I've gone astray. Some An Hua Hei Cha Tea terms : Hei Zhuan, Hua Zhuan, Hua Juan,...

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

There’s a rich variety of teas within this category (to say nothing of “heicha” more generally), and the quality of the material used and processing has improved a lot just over the last decade. That sounds encouraging. Thank you, Balthazar , for being so generous with your time with that lengthy r...

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

Recently was gifted this. Has anyone tried something like this before? Also how do you break into this? Seems solid as a slab of rock . Yesterday was the first time I took a bit more than just a glance at Hei Cha (other than Liu Bao, which I do drink), so I found myself perusing this TeaForum topic...

Re: Yixing advice

I've checked Mud and Leaves and they are a nice range of teapots, but I have a good "feeling" for the teapot on EOT, so I will go for this one! Next one will probably be on Mud or Yann Gallery 😁😁😅 I also have a good "feeling" for the teapot on EOT. I haven't been at this hobby for very long, but th...

Re: Yixing advice

Hello Guys! I'm willing to start a small collection of Yixing pots. I have right now two Pots, a chaozu and a Nixing. I've read this topic and understood that a tea pot chooses the tea! Although while doing some research I've found that some clay "interact" better with tea types. I'm looking to bre...

Re: Yinchen Studio

…Yinchen Studio and Yann Gallery…Whether they are directly linked to the workshops that produce the pots is not that important. To me that is precisely the most important part of their business. Both claim to be quality oriented workshops with internet distribution. Yinchen Studio was found by Mast...

Re: Rec. Request: US/American Tea Vendors

JournalerMarie You're probably aware that Bok lives in Taiwan and knows his way around a cup of tea. Tillerman is a Taiwan tea specialist. I don't have Bok's credentials, but I enthusiastically recommend Tillerman as well. If you search this Forum, I think you'll find it's unanimous. I've had teas ...

Re: Best Tea Tray Materials/Features?

As someone fairly new to tea ware myself, I'm just throwing this in for fellow novices who may be interested in this thread.

Waxy sounds weird though…
30 years sitting on a shelf absorbing everything from car exhaust to cooking oils, I guess. Something may have even spilled on it during a move.
Citric acid it is. Thanks, @Bok.
