I thought this forum is built only by tea enthusiasts not also the vendor.
The tea enthusiasts who built this place allow vendors to be participants, but the founding enthusiasts are not vendors and not profiting from this forum.

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

I often pour water backwards through the spout of my pot to keep the filters less clogged....and I haven't noticed any increase in astringency from the resulting gentle agitation, or a from swirling the leaves in the pot a bit when they're clumped up to one side and I didn't do the backwards pour.

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Fair cups do have a reason, for sure. I assume the turbulence of the tea pouring will take care of mixing a single cup, but for sharing....fair cup.

Lovely cup. I see hints of softness in the finish texture.

'Brightness' sencha from Obubu Tea Farm, from summer harvested leaves, partly shaded. Enjoying sweet rich vegetal tea with delicate umami. Tasty.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2015 Gao Jia Shan "Cha Duo Tang" Wild Harvested Hunan Fu Brick Tea/Shou Puerh from Yunnan Sourcing. It has more camphor and less plummy notes vs the Norbu Lao Cha Tou nuggets I was just brewing, but still, tasty and good for a low-attention need-to-hydrate afternoon and evening in the office.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Norbu Lao Cha Tou nuggets from 2009. I loved the sweet plummy earthy nature of this one and bought several bricks; I still have some of that first purchase left. It is rich and deep, and continues to give as much pleasure now as it did at the beginning. I became quite worried once I broke into my la...

Re: For ripe puer tea drinkers and vendors...your thought on "aerial fermentation"

I think Yunnan Sourcing is just exceptionally good at online guerilla marketing. YS is western facing, gives lots of descriptions, and has teas over a wide price range. When I first got started with puerh, it was a comfortable place to shop. There are a lot more shops now, and many of the handful o...

Re: Does size really matter?

Bigger pots and grandpa style in large chawans when I need to hydrate; littler pots and smaller cups when I have more time for concentrated enjoyment, and am not brewing giant-leaved teas.

Re: The Porcelain Thread

The tea boat/tray in the background looks interesting, mind sharing some photos of it when you get a chance? :) The tray is by Mirka Randova, and I think I bought it directly with a few other items from Petr Novak. It's in a ton of my teaware photos, but I've never featured it specifically for itse...

I've got a few porcelain pieces from Shawn McGuire (Great Wheel Studio, formerly Greenwood Studio ) including this fabulous chawan https://photos.smugmug.com/Tea/Daily-Tea/i-kMTT3NL/0/ee582a84/M/160217%20Red%20Alishan%20Oolong%20IMG_0787%20ppd-M.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Tea/Daily-Tea/i-LvfBwmN...
