Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

@StoneLadle, @OCTO please, share your thoughts about them once the party is over while you'll be cooking more water for another round :)

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

Nice looking pot! What clay is it? Said to be Jiang po ni - a naturally occurring mix of zini and lüni as far as i know. A grainy, geometric and nice mix of plain yet catching in smaller details form - my idea for a vessel for liu bao & liu an teas. Now i'll go do some more practice and see how goo...

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

Balthazar , i'm starting to train (or get trained by) the replacement pot too. Got the very first session with liu an today and was meet with astringency i wasn't even aware was in there while brewing it in porcelain and DCQ pot of yours.

Re: Huangshan Maofeng

Jeanbb , i'm interested in how you'd find the last one, which i believe would be Hou Gu - i liked it to no end (or should i say to the bottom of the bag :)). Posted my notes in the sibling thread, https://www.teaforum.org/viewtopic.php?p=28580#p28580 . I've had about the same longevity. The Hou Gu ...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Taking notes is less than usual practice for me, and since i wanted to do that, i went with both yanchas that where awaiting a record in the log, both from Wuyi Origin. That also aligned well with the preference for darker brews as days only recently set off to another summer and seasoning of the ve...

Give away/swap a bunch of jin jun mei and lapsang souchong

In an experiment gone awry (just a bit though), i ended up with a good deal of wild jin jun mei and 2 kinds of lapsang souchong that's as wild. The lemon and rose bush that i get in them is something i can't seem to enjoy any time soon. They are from a reputable vendor brought up here now and then, ...

Re: Teaware B&W Appreciation

@OCTO, this man... I still remember seeing a tad pair or tall pear skins by him, then a trio roamed around and now - a quartet! I'll be waiting (probably not for long) for a full orchestra now :D

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Meticulously enjoyed a Huangshan Maofengs galore from a fellow forum member, got some favorites and would rather continue with them one at a time now. No pictures since i didn't feel like making the teas just. Starting with a real beauty, Shexian Huangshan Maofeng. Dry leaves in preheated gaiwan sme...

I often think of what to eat in order to drink which tea to digest it with afterwards... Lately it's been Chaozhou cuisine paired with Dancong...
So, first shot has the meals, and second one - the stuff to digest it with?! :lol:

Re: What HeiCha are you drinking

Heh, i began my LA sessions with 5g leaf to 50ml water. No wonder i've been enjoying a good deal of buzz afterwards. Tried it 1g/10ml today and find it delicious still, but the cat's been out and high on extra dose for a while now :shock:

I recently used the form on their website to initiate an email conversation, and received a very quick response.
Might be my quirky setup then. Thanks for clearing it up.

Re: The Essence of Tea

If anybody from the office hangs around - it's rather problematic to get in touch with you for those who don't use popular social media platforms. Maybe it's even more than just one person :P. Neither 'contact us' from the header, nor 'ask about this product' seem to work. At least i haven't heard b...

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

@Bok, that one was from Eastern China's Dongting lake (or rather mountain). Still not a particularly brilliant exemplar :)
