Re: What Green Are You Drinking

By special order you mean last years Tokusen Gyokuro from Ippodo that we had for our inagural tasting? I’m thinking, if so them maybe you vaccum sealed some? Curious if flavor profile has evolved over time. Yes, it's the Tokusen Gyokuro from Ippodo, gorgeous stuff. It's hard to say if how much the ...

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

I brew more dilute, and I really like TPHK. Wing Hop Fung does not disclose precise harvest timing or origins, but the TPHK I have bought there has delicate vegetal flavor with some floral notes and a hint of cinnamon, and is still wonderful when I find the remains of a packet in the back of the tea...

Re: Cleaning: Awakening & Resetting Unglazed Ceramics / Yixing

Finally got to creating a Flickr set of the images of the before and after of the pots I cleaned with percarbonate. It was very bubbly stuff https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50081800501_9cf71035b3.jpg and took this pot from this https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50081217648_1f3b4288ab_z.jpg to ...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

EoT's 2019 Spring "Singularity" Gushu Puerh Tea, I left the gaiwan lid on between steepings and it went bitter on me so I can tell you what it really tastes like. :oops: Remember those overly powerful infusions can often be rescued by diluting them. When you're using a small cup for your gongfu ses...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Bamboo aged 2008 sheng from Wuyi, a lovely tea I'm glad I stocked up on in 2010 or thereabouts. Wish I'd bought more of it, such a fine mix of earthy, herbaceous, and sweet/caramel notes. 10 years on its hard to look back that long and question tea decisions :-) True enough. I'd be prepared to inve...

Re: Become A Flavor Explorer!

debunix , yes, Andy's teas were packaged very shortly after roasting was completed. Good to know. I'll leave them closed but not sealed for a bit to see how the roast changes. As to Laoshi's tea, there is none of the winter harvest left but the spring harvest should soon be here. Spring 2020 was a ...

Re: Become A Flavor Explorer!

Found a few minutes to concentrate on the Dong Dings, #4, 5, 6: first time with these teas. As per my usual, I used less tea than recommended, 1 gram for about 60 mL water just off the boil in my gaiwans. 4 sweet, delicate, floral, roast on top 5 sweet, floral, delicate, roast feels more integrated ...
