Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2007 organic Menku Sheng from Yunnan Sourcing. Earthy, herbaceous notes with a hint of bitterness and bit of camphor.

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Yesterday, the Lala Shan Hong Shui from Floating Leaves grandpa style, enjoyed from a Tony Ferguson shino chawan. Watching the beautiful leaves unfurl, while enjoying several infusions of lovely tea, adds to the pleasure of the session. These photos cover 40 minutes and 3 infusions of fruity, plummy...

Re: Why are Chawans so expensive?

And you're also paying for all those made but discarded because they didn't meet the standard required.

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Phoenix Village Light Roast Shui Xian from Yunnan Sourcing, a 2014 harvest that has been sitting in my tea trunk a long time. This is not a green oolong by any means; the dry leaves are light brown, not remotely green, and wetted they're still brown. Bu here are delicate floral notes with a deep fru...

Re: Has the internet lost interest in British-style tea?

I don't know about the internet, but I know that my path to tea hit a wall when I first stepped from enjoying the tea served with meals in asian restaurants to trying teas on my own. The easy to access teas in local shops were variations on British style teas, meant to have their bitterness blocked ...

Re: Novák & Randová Teaware

Website is up and there are some very fine pieces there, albeit none from Petr Novak. Sedlak's woodenwares are particularly lovely. If I didn't already have some lovely tea scoops for display by him I'd be buying those sweet curly maple pieces.

Tsuen gyokuro Yume no Ukihashi: enjoying from the little lefty Shimizu Ken Nosaka pot, warm and vegetal, and I used a lot of leaf; it's taken to the 5th infusion or thereabouts for the floral notes to start to break through.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Another great thing about small short steeps: enjoying that brilliant leaf over a longer time , hot hot hot, while not having any one steep get oxidized and unpleasant if not drunk quickly enough. It's a luxury to have the time to do it, but when you can be anchored to the tea table for awhile (comp...
