Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

I’m drinking Ethan’s Spring 2020 DYL. My friend is moving to Taiwan today so I’m having a tea session with her in mind.

No desire to write out some sexy tasting notes today, but reading back a few pages I’m glad some more people are buying from Ethan per my recommendation. :lol:

Re: FS: Jiří Duchek teapot 80ml, $35 + shipping

.....since I don't drink that much tea anymore. Great deal! Are you switching to coffee or some other beverage? What to do with all that extra free time :) I still drink Da Yu Ling once in a while, but I'm doing more oil painting and some incense instead. I'm actually more calm and alert without re...

Looks good. I suggest you write what volume the pot holds, whether it is glazed inside or outside or not, etc.
The outside has a thin glaze, but the interior of the pot is unglazed.
80 ml

It's too late for me to edit the main post

FS: Jiří Duchek teapot 80ml, $35 + shipping

Original price was $100 + shipping from Europe Made from local light clay in the Czech Republic, he says it's versatile for most teas. I've only used it a few times, with puer. It's very satisfying to hold, I like the size and shape. Fast pour and no leaking. Selling it as part of spring cleaning si...

Re: Tea-Masters

No, I'm sure he has more issues stocking than selling those... One sample he included that I really liked was a very well balanced, lightly smoked Lapsang Souchong. It was the best black tea that I've ever had but the price to buy more of it was prohibitive.

Re: Tea-Masters

The foreign samples he includes are sometimes interesting, but I only drink the first brew usually.

The samples he gives scale with the price of your purchase. I got to try some crazy rare teas that he doesn’t stock on the website when I placed a $1,000 purchase.

Re: Tea-Masters

I've had a private tea session with Stephane when he was visiting NYC 2 or 3 years ago. He was very nice and had a specific brewing, storage, and consumption method for each of his teas. I've met a lot of unpleasant (and quite frankly, crazy) people from the tea community, and he's definitely not on...
