Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2016 W2T TeaDontLie: Really nice overall. This is a nice mellow-ish, fruity, floral brew. Later steeps bring out astringency.

[WTS] Jian Shui clay tea canisters from Yunnan Sourcing

I am selling 3 Jian Shui clay tea canisters I purchased from Yunnan Sourcing. They are clean and have no smell that I can detect. They have been clean and empty for the last year or more. They are approximately 5in H x 4in D (~13cm H x 10cm D). The second picture has an unopened 200g puer cake for s...

I was looking for a ceramic base one, but went for a cheaper bamboo one because it was available locally. While its nice being able to brew very wet if I want, the problem is its also what starts t...

Re: Looking for new tea tray recommendations

I do enjoy a minimalist setup when I am brewing in the kitchen/shed/garden but when I am in my dedicated team space I enjoy a larger tray.

Re: Looking for new tea tray recommendations

I came to a realization that I dont need a big 'ole tea tray and that a small tea boat is enough to collect drippings. I got a cheaper one to start with and so far i like it more than the tray. :D

Re: The Porcelain Thread

I typically brew black tea western style and I'm looking for a larger tea pot, around 200-250ml. I am strongly considering porcelain as the material in a traditional teapot or perhaps a Kyusu. What are some reputable vendors that I should be looking at? Thanks in advance gregcss For that size of po...
