tea-side AAA dongfang meiren from thailand. wonderful stuff. IMG_20181015_131950.jpg Hi pedant, I'm going to borrow your moniker and be pedantic: dongfang meiren (or oriental beauty) is made only in Taiwan.

Re: Humidity Control: DIY Salt Packs

someone was asking me how well tyvek resists leakage in case a salt pack gets knocked over.

tonight, i tested it out and saw no signs of leakage after inverting one for an hour. i wouldn't bet my collection on it, but it does seem pretty safe.

I live in a house that gets quite dry, especially during the winter months (basically meaning October-March here) due to heaters + wood stove.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

07 yqh lingya for me tonight

a lovely tea. rarely disappoints. i think it's my favorite tea from yqh.

Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

I've tried a few of the teas in your lineup. You guys have great taste :D

I can personally recommend the Naked Yiwu and 2001 Zhongcha Huangyin. And of course the Serious/Conscientious Formula needs no introduction.

Welcome!
