Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Today I shared ‘90 Yiwu with the NYTS group. We had a mid 2000’s puer group share and so I brought something older. We also had a ‘95 puer which I thought was better than what I brought since it was a much more lively and bright brew (good Qi). Mine had Qi that warmed the body but was not lively on ...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Today, I was drinking DYL 98K from Tea Masters with Mountain Valley Spring water (I've been testing different waters with this tea over the past few weeks). I burped in the middle of the session and the flavor of the tea tasted like what my mom would give me when I was sick as a child... camomile te...

Single puer cake storage

I've seen some Japanese tea shops that have a plastic casing around an entire puer cake and that is how they store and sell it. Has anyone had any experience using them and does anyone know where to buy them? Do you not have a pumidor but store your single cakes in a special way? I'd like to know mo...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I am having 2004 TW Changtai Brown that I got as a sample from a friend.

It's nice and hitting the spot for what I'm looking for today. It has nice aged characteristic and isn't very bitter. It has a nice smell to it.

Re: What White Are You Drinking

Based on the look of the leaves, does this Fuding white tea look better than average? The leaves do seem to look rather hairy. One of my favorite tea vendors sent out this email saying he got this small supply in and if we want to order first before everyone else. He seems excited but I know by now ...

Re: Characteristics of good gaoshan?

No, the handle broken and so I decided to give the pot to a friend that likes to do kintsugi.
What's there at the bottom of the pot seems permanent and wouldn't come out with boiling water imo.

Re: Hokujo teaware

wow, looks amazing

75ml was good info, it looks a lot larger in your pic but that's because there's no perspective :D
