FS: 2006 Mengku Qiao Mu Wang Guangdong Storage

I have up to ~400 grams of this tea available, that I'd like to sell. I would happily sell for $0.22/gram plus shipping. It currently sells for $0.228/gram plus shipping from China, so if you're stateside and don't want a full kilo, I think it's a decent deal. This is one of my favorite teas, but I ...

Re: Whole room humidifiers for storing puerh?

I live near the east coast (central NY) and I've been running a whole room humidifier for about a year now and am giving up. Right now, in January, it can't keep up. I'm barely keeping 40% RH in the room with my tea and the temp is often in the low 60s. Most importantly, I am very unhappy with the c...

Ithaca, NY Puer Drinkers?

Hello,

Wondering if there are any other puer drinkers in the Ithaca, NY area. I love drinking tea by myself and engaging with the community online, but it would be nice to have another person to appreciate puer with in person.

Thanks!
Tom

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Home sick with a bad head cold, so I had a thick session of 2006 Mengku Qiao Mu Wang. Even with my nose not working, I still love the mouth and body feel of that tea, warming and medicinal.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2002 cnnp bulang from liquid proust. 15s rinse, some humid storage notes in 1st steep, expected as it was hong kong stored. Gone by the 2nd steep. All woody goodness from there on out. Still lots of astringency for ~16 year old tea, in the 4th steep out. Nice calming qi. Another great one from liqu...

FT/FS: Yixing Shi Pao 185 mL

Hi All. I have the aforementioned pot I'm interested in trading/selling, it's too big for my daily use. See photos. It's lightly seasoned with sheng puer, has no chips or damage. The lid is every so slightly a little loose. I bought it at Fang Tea in Queens back in 2009, don't remember how much I pa...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Finished off a session of 2017 Crimson Lotus Storm Breaker today. I really don't think this tea is worth the money they're asking. It's good, moderately complex and surprisingly drinkable for 2017 (after two washes, dry leaf was super wo dui), but it doesn't last and it's not that complex. The two o...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2004 Yiwu from Tea Urchin care of Liquid Proust via a tea swap. Infusions forever...all the notes I love with aged sheng...old books, ripe pitted fruit, some damp wood, slight camphor, and resin; even a little shroom. Absolutely beautiful liquor with rich amber hues. Serious mellowing qi. Nice swee...

2007 Shu Favorites

Anyone have any particular 2007 (or about then) shu pu favorites? Ideally, things that are currently available. I'm trying to space out my shu collection by five years for comparison and it seems like there are a few options out there. Obviously, most things from this period are going to be classic ...

Re: Classic pu?

The alternative to drinking a bunch of pesticide-laden factory tea would be to order some single village or single mountain pressings from vendors such as Yunnan Sourcing, Farmerleaf, Essence of Tea, or Crimson Lotus (there are others). This will allow you to become more familiar with the distinct q...
