Re: A lovely Fuxi Guyu Maofeng

May I ask where you got that tea? Did you source it or did you buy it from a company.

Video/Article about Hou Kui Making

I spent two or three days in Hou Keng making Hou Kui baked over coal. I didnt get much footage because I was helping make the tea but I added an article explaining the short video I made.

Just to clarify: First pick green tea is not always the best

This morning I came back from Hou Gu which is in the core region of Huang Shan and produces a Mao Feng that was really loved last year. I was there April 1st and the first thing the guy who makes the tea said to me was, it's too early. They were picking tea, they were making tea, but the tea was too...

Re: I made a video on Huang Shan Mao Fengs being on the market too early

I just drank Huang Shoul Mao Feng sent to me by Sweetestdew. 2 grams steeped in 120 ml of 96C water for a minute = flavorless. 2nd infusion steeped for 2 minutes = flavorless. Tasted the tea from the bag I sent you from, you're right the flavor is completely gone. Mao Feng is subtle, but that was e...

I made a video on Huang Shan Mao Fengs being on the market too early

Around this time I see a curious thing online, people advertising this years mao feng. This is curious to me because living in Huang Shan, the season clearly hasnt started. I decided to do a video on this topic in which I talk to two different tea friends. When asked about the very early teas they b...

An Article on Traditional Huangshan Culture

I wrote a brief into article on traditional Huangshan Culture. I didn't realize the culture was so deep going in so I struggled to keep it short. This is part of a new series called Beyond Tea where I explore the cultures that surround and impact tea. I hope you enjoy it :) https://thesweetestdew.co...

Re: Has anyone every drank tea from a well seasoned yixing?

The reason why I have more pots than different teas is that I might prefer a certain tea best in a certain pot/clay. Or I might want to emphasise an aspect of a tea. Many reasons. But it really is general thing not only concerning Yixing clay. How do you think about what tea is best for what clay. ...

Has anyone every drunk tea from a well seasoned yixing?

I am exploring yixing a little bit, but I can help but feel skeptical about some of the claims. The whole thing about not mixing tea because it might ruin the flavors of future teas seems to be a little farfetched. If you drink from a pot thats only red tea and then drink from a pot thats shu pu and...
