Re: DARJEELING FIRST FLUSH 2019

i've had the most luck with thunderbolt but have gotten some mediocre teas from him as well. i won't mention others i've tried because i don't have positive things to say, and it's also been a long time. what do you think are the best online vendors in terms of quality? and what about for nepali teas?

Re: Travel with Teaware Like a Pro

very nice! the last time i was at harbor freight, i ended up brining home a couple of knockoff pelican-style cases ('apache' brand) that were on sale (and already inexpensive to begin with). i considered using one of them like that but didn't because it smells plasticy. does yours have much of a sm...

Re: Tetsubin cleaning tutorial

maybe lemon is an accepted traditional restoration method (?), but might it be better and less work to use citric acid or even vinegar instead? unsure of the advantage of introducing citrus oils, sugar, etc
