Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

After several days of starting with almost the last of a package of 'Spring Sun' sencha from Obubu (from my subscription, such fun with that so far, but have to make room for the summer and early fall teas that were just delivered), today I'm enjoying some Jerisan Mountain Halmonicha (balhyocha) fro...

Re: Musings on Dancong…

Wow, looks fabulous. I love how different Dan Congs can be. I've never had Mezcal but I know that even though the fine Dan Congs from TeaHabitat are all very aromatic and share some degree of 'floral' quality, they are as different as the scent of a rose vs jasmine vs honeysuckle vs citrus flower vs...

So I finally succumbed to peer pressure and decided to get a japanese teapot :lol:

Back handle pot from Tsuchihira Eiichi via Artistic Nippon

Pics arent the best
Striking finish on that lovely pot, must be pleasant to reflect on it as you wait for the infusions to complete

Li Shan from the TeaChat 2016 group buy, long unopened in my tea trunk. Enjoying it grandpa style in a fine chawan by Shyrabbit.

I don't think it has lost much while sealed in its vacuum pack, and grandpa style is so nice with these fine green oolongs.

Re: mud and leaves

I found this particularly interesting in suggesting why the ruyao type of glaze has been so hard to duplicate today.... "Ruyao was one of the hardest ones to revive, because there are so few surviving examples left, and back then they added agate to the glaze. If we were still to add agate it would ...

I was admiring exactly that juxtaposition of colors, and thinking that the date gives shows how remarkably small and delicate the teapot is.

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Much drinking pleasure there. I am enjoying a second day with An Ji Bai Cha that had fallen behind a cabinet for an unknown period of time, at the office. It's 2014 harvest, purchased from Norbu. What is so lovely about this stuff is that even this sort of abuse--probably it sat behind that cabinet ...

I made the move to the Canary islands where I curently live in the hills close to the capital with an almost ideal climate for my sheng collection. Looking forward to a fruitful exchange with you!
