Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

Is there any way to alert customers that a certain restock might be the final one, or do you think that's like shouting fire instead a crowded theater? BTW, would've bought the Bulang King for the increased price, but obviously glad I got it before that happened! :lol: We are a bit wary of doing th...

Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

The gaiwans are back in stock!! The 2004 Bulang King was restocked as well :) I've noticed that things like the Bulang King, 2010 7542, 2008 8582, etc. have been restocked over the last few months, but how do you know if a tea's certain restock will be the last one? Also, I noticed that the Bulang ...

Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

Tempted by the Pomelo as a first yixing, but solo brew 99% of the time, so I am guessing that using the pot to ~80 to ~100ml capacity would become annoying after a while (ensuring all of the leaves will be submerged before each subsequent steep seems like a necessary step that may involve more than...

Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

A new set of antique Yixing teapots has been posted on the site! Is there a need to reset or clean the pot when it arrives? We clean the pots when we receive them. Once you receive a pot, I would recommend prewarming it gradually, adding room temperature water first, then half-emptying the pot, and...

Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

I spent a good amount of time with the gaiwan that TWL sells. Its one of the best gaiwans I own, the pour is fast and narrow which is important. There are expensive gaiwans out there that have a wide pour that can splash boiling water on your fingers. The lid makes it easy to make a small opening f...

Cool. I see you listed a newer 7542 so I will likely give that one a try :)
Yes, we did quite some homework to select this one. Solid tea.

Is the 2005 Dayi 7542, Batch 502 gone forever? I snoozed to long and should have bought it when I had the chance.
we will try to get more, but it won't be easy to get more at that price. We'll see

Re: Teas We Like : By and for Tea Lovers

Hi! We have added two new teas to the site! The 2010 Dayi 7542, batch 001, is in our opinion the best bang for buck 7542 right now. The Qing Xiang 25 years aged oolong is an exceptional example of well stored aged Taiwanese oolong, with fruity and floral notes. In addition, we have restocked the 199...

Re: Gaiwan

./download/file.php?id=6379 I find my finger get scorched when either or both A and B are too small. A narrow rim beyond the gaiwan lid (A too small) , even if the lid fit is low inside the rim, isn't enough distance for my sometimes shaky fingers. Similarly, if the lid fit is shallow inside the ri...
