I have a bin full of hungry worms who willingly compost the occasional fresh but undrinkable/wouldn't inflict on my enemy teas as well as the spent leaves. The garden accepts it all gratefully.
I love the thought of your composting tea worms. :lol:

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

CWarren - Lovely notes as usual. I take it this is not available anymore? This sounds really interesting. I ordered a cake of the Milk, Cream, and Alcohol....for the price I figured that I had nothing to loose ;) Thank you. This particular tea isn’t available but there are plenty of places that sel...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2012 Autumn Naka from ChaWang Shop. This has aged well surprisingly given how tightly compressed it is. I love packing a lot of leaf when steeping this one and giving it longer infusion times to really accent the bamboo. There’s a sweet toffee like scent and flavor note mixed with the bamboo that hi...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

CWarren - Thanks :) Looks like I am going to have to place an order. Your lovely notes and photos really helped inspire me. Glad I could be of some small help. Enjoy the tea. They have so many offerings to choose from including daily drinkers on up to some premium stuff. I’ve yet to find one disapp...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

CWarren - Talk about perfect timng...I was just looking at 2015 Milk, Cream & Alcohol on W2T's site! Thanks for the tasting notes..this sounds right up my alley ;) I have not ordered from them before...is the shipping expensive to the US? It’s a $9.99 flat fee so larger orders are always better. Th...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2015 Milk, Cream & Alcohol from white2tea. Hasn’t really changed much from when I first received it; still a very young tasting sheng. Slightly bitter with the semi sweet apricot notes I come to expect and a syrupy thickness in the soup I really enjoy. Of all the daily drinker type teas this is one ...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

It’s very rare that I drink anything besides puerh but tonight I pulled out this full sized orange filled with roasted tie guan yin. It’s been sitting in storage for about three years. I loved the combination of high charcoal roast and orange notes combined with the tea. Seriously mellow feels with...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2014 Bulang Gushu 2.0 from Crimson Lotus Tea. A much needed comforting shou on a cold and snowy winter evening.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Had this 2004 Yiwu from Tea Urchin almost a year ago, (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=12&p=3115#p3115), and the notes are identical though maybe a bit more subdued.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2016 "Planet Yiwu" Sheng Dragon Ball from Crimson Lotus Tea. This was a great tea when I first got it but it has really evolved into something special. Thick soup that tasted far more aged than expected. Some beautiful golden to amber shades as the ball opened and a great qi giving all kinds of rela...
