Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Had a session with HY chen light roast dong ding from leafy green. First 4 infusions were interesting with toffee sweetness and dried fruit flavors getting deeper with each infusion. It gave me the impression of slowly entering and delving deeper into a large house. The roast and the leaf flavors a...

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

Victoria, thanks for the links! Lot of interesting information in those threads. Would this really be a green tea? The leaf is quite dark, which is why I thought it might qualify (loosely) as hei cha. Here is an image from the vendor's website: https://goodtea.eu/20076-large_default/yamabuki-nadesh...

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

It evokes images of floral fragrance and feminine beauty.The process of fermentation used here is reminiscent of the fermentatio...

I do really enjoy sharing Sheng with tea pals 🍃 ...sigh that will have to wait. Alone sessions are getting to be slightly not as exciting as before. I do also miss sharing the wide variety to teas and interests with our local tea group. My got-to’s otherwise are high quality charcoal roasted DongDin...

Re: Water Water Everywhere... What’s Your Water?

I have the luck to easily find S.Bernardo, a water source from the alps, it is pretty good with any kind of tea! If i can't find that, then i buy S. Anna, wich is quite similar, tho slightly lighter in minerals. Bac Are you in Italy somewhere? Other members that have mentioned San Bernardo water ar...

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Found a pack in my refrigerator of Kaburagien‘s deep steamed Yakushima Shincha. Tastes like a sweet meadow with an umami savory aroma. Grown in the southern island of Yakushima, a world heritage site which also has protected cedar forests, which my lid holders (sake cups) are made of.

I just noticed this shiny fragment on my lid, almost like a piece of coating. Has anyone seen this on their yixing?
The scale came off of the lid skirt probably
Or someone pached it at some point.

It was from this sale:
viewtopic.php?f=57&t=969

This link above has some pictures.

Luckily for me, the sale was closed at the time due to lack of interest, allowing me to take the deal today.
Always thought that was a very nice set. Good for you in getting them.
