Re: Inaugural Group Tasting: Sinensis Yokkaichi & Ippodo Tokusen Gyokuro

Ah, really enjoy reading your tasting notes Frisbeehead. Super detailed, nice photos as well. Thank you. The Hokujo shiboridashi you are using for steeping is brilliant. Its proportion and form are the most perfect I’ve seem for steeping and admiring gyokuro needles as they are expanding. I’m wonde...

And thank you for the cute note that you ...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2007 Yang Qing Hao Lingya in my chipped F2 zini shuiping This session is turning out much better than my last. That's not to say my last session was bad, as I don't think I've had a bad session with this tea. However for some reason, whether it's because of my body chemistry right now, or because I'...

Re: Emei Mountain, Sichuan Province, China - photo album

Gorgeous place, and lovely photos of the trees struggling along the mountain ridges, and the magnificent setting for the sculptures, and impressive dedication it gets to view them. And: Sichuan: how was the food? And the tea? Enough peppers to keep you warm in all that snow? How was the food? Oh bo...

Emei Mountain, Sichuan Province, China - photo album

Finally finished uploading a some ~300 picture album to imgur of my trip to Emei Mountain in Sichuan, when I was studying in China. It was a surreal and beautiful place, and for the first time during my whole time in China, there were almost no other people - just me and my classmates. We went in Ma...
