Re: Combining Tea with other Interests

I play League of Legends. Same username too! Starcraft II and Dota II for me. I am a Nintendo fan! Recently I played Dark Souls, in which I discovered I should never drink any good quality tea while playing - there is no pause button (and that is only the least of your worries while playing)! Oh, t...

Very often I play video games while gong fuing.
I play banjo. I find tea doesn't effect my playing like the moonshine does :lol:

Shine, I also game. What type of games do you play?

Re: favorite Gaoshan (high mountain) vendor

nothing like the yeasty, rather dull dongfang meiren that I usually encounter. I have yet to encounter an Oriental Beauty that I could call sophisticated, I only ever had the sort mentioned above... Not bad, but not terribly interesting in that I would consider to buy some. Most of the jassid bitte...

favorite Gaoshan (high mountain) vendor

I think Gaoshan (Taiwanese high mountain oolong) tea is loved enough that it deserves to have its own vendor topic. This is the tea where my heart truly lies. Who are your favorite vendors? Tillerman is my current go to. Top quality and very well curated. I have also had good luck with Taiwan tea cr...

Re: cups- silver and clay

I personally stick to porcelain or some sort of glazed ware for my cups. I feel that part of gung fu is the pursuit of perfecting the brewing technique. An un-glazed cup would cause the tea to continue to be effected after the brewing was done. I am a huge fan of my silver teapot. so much so that if...

Re: Chaozhou pots

I am planning on getting one of these from Tea habitat this week.
I noticed that each of her pots notes the artist that made it. Are some of the artist available through tea habitat more desirable or known for higher quality?

I use hongni for my yancha teas.
Your pot will probably perform closer to porcelain than you think.

Re: The (Western) Yixing market

Brent D 1300 for a authentic, pure Zhuni clay from Qing era is frankly not much. You pay more or slightly less for a modern (real and pure) Zhuni. For sure its more reasonable, but still around twice what id pay for a teapot. I could see myself spending around 700 tops on a pot, but its interesting...

Re: The (Western) Yixing market

Sigh...now look what youve gone and done... Email sent. Id imagine they want over $1000 though. Lets see if they respond. That is Qing Dynasty! $4000 Easy. I would not bother with the ones they do not display the price. It means if you do not know how much this is worth, don't bother! :mrgreen: :mr...
