Re: Anyone try the 2005-03 XG tuo from Cloud?

No doubt that this one is still quite young. Believe it or not many westerners actually consume these XG tuo even younger than this one. I usually find these pretty nasty until at least 10yrs. Westerners are known to consume young/fresh pu erh like green tea lol. I think a lot of westerners consume...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Okay, thanks. This is the tea box. Inside there are individually vacuum packed packets of tea. I don't want to open one though since I only have 1 left. ./download/file.php?id=6382 If this is an oolong tea then it could be TieGuanYin. The small words under 1800 has TieGuanYin labeled there. At the ...

Re: Shipping delays from China?

I heard that there’s a massive delay with packages stuck in Shanghai between March to May. My EOT package is among them 😕, it has been in Shanghai for the past 4+ months. Hopefully it will come before the year is over.

Re: Shu Recommendations for Sheng Lover

I wonder if it’s the lighting. The other cake has 4 photos on their website, the 3rd photo that shows an unwrapped brick on top of two wrapped bricks. The wrappers look somewhat new.

Re: Shu Recommendations for Sheng Lover

I cut my teeth on puer starting in my childhood with shu+chrysanthemum flowers during dim sum; however, when I got seriously into raw puer in my early adulthood I shied away from shu, thinking that it was inferior to aged, raw sheng. I've seen a lot more shu offerings from vendors now, and it's got...

Re: Looking for new tea tray recommendations

This maybe slightly more expensive than your vendors. I have been looking at this vendor’s tea tray lately:

I have too many tea trays, I am trying hard to not adopt anymore :(

We have added new modern Yixings to the site.
You guys are so awesome! Thank you for all the work!
+1 on that. I appreciate shipping time to the United States which my experience was 2-3 weeks. I think if I order from vendors from Canada, it would take about the same amount of time.

Re: Yixing

Question about pot density and types of Pu’erh. In general, is pot density = thickness, how pourous, something else? I’ve heard from a vendor that for aged Shou you want a lower density clay, for new Sheng a higher density clay (to pick a couple mo examples on opposite sides of the scale). So I’m t...

Re: Yixing

Thank you, Bok, DailyTX, and OCTO! I appreciate the advice. Looking forward to getting to know this pot. It's humbling to think about its unlikely journey to the Pacific Northwest.

Re: Yixing

Beyond very slowly warming them up, are there any special precautions you guys are taking using a LQER pot for the first time? (A few weeks ago I posted that I'd buy one in a few years and bought one a few days after that instead. :lol: ) Chris I typically let it bath in filtered room temperature w...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I'm curious how everyone purchases puerh so that you get older tree material and not some wild bush stuff that is not good at all. Does the verbiage used on vendor's website even match up with reality? I think recognizing older tree materials takes time and patience to learn. Even for vendors, unle...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

DailyTX Thanks for the recommendation. I have a couple yixing pots, and I drink ripe daily. So while I dedicate a pot to a particular ripe, for a couple weeks at a time as I drink through a batch, the idea here is then I'm all of a sudden adding a different ripe tea and possibly using a pot that ot...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I ordered some aged ripe (90's) that I had sampled a couple months ago. I really enjoyed it, but initially didn't order it was it was above my normal price range (it is .40/g). I'm going to treat myself 1-2x a week to it, when I have time to sit and enjoy it without multitasking. I figure at 6g a b...
