Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

1985 Maison des Trois Thes in Paris - 1985 Nan Nuo loose raw pu'er from bag #36. :D :D :D I don't think I'll be able to afford replacing this tea when the bag is finished. ;) What was the cost/g on that tea? I visited that shop when I was in Paris last year but don’t remember seeing a price list ot...

2015 Hekai raw puerh from Chawangshop. One of the favourite young teas of my American tea friend and I who have exchanged opinions about this tea in the past. Unfortunately not much is left of it...

Re: Inherited mystery puerh

Glad to hear that you traced the tea to its origin.

When I saw the photo of the shop I recognised it as I usually pay a visit to that shop (amongst other tea shops on that street and perpendicular streets to it) every time I go to HK.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2013 Yunnan Sourcing Da Si Ancient Arbor raw pu'er tea of Feng Qing. In my last 10 grams of a sample. Quality not easily seen nowadays for a young pu'er tea.

Today is the turn of the 2015 Yunnan Sourcing Da Hu Sai raw pu-erh tea sample. Aromatic and flavourful which I am enjoying very much.

Re: Humidity Control: DIY Salt Packs

It's been 24 hours and so I checked it. My room humidity is 87% but inside the box it's 74%. i get that humidity is high where you live, but is visible mold a real concern with natural storage there? since there would be decent airflow, i'm wondering if your tea is actually at risk from high humidi...

Re: Provocative thoughts on Puerh

In the end, I continue to be impressed by the complexity of tea...nothing I like more than an endless rabbit hole :lol: My position exactly. I was introduced to pu'er tea some 7 or 8 years ago in Hong Kong when visiting their Teaware museum in Hong Kong Park which had a small glass cabinet with the...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

2015 Yunnan Sourcing Bai Ni Shui old arbor raw pu-erh.

With the amassing of pu'er teas in the past many of the tea club samples were left behind untouched. For the past few months I have been catching up but it will be quite a few more months to clear the piles of sheng samples. :D

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Noonie oh ok, I’m still trying to figure how long I can cupboard store before that happens...keeping them in plastic bags for now. At home I keep my pu'er tea cakes in canvas bags as we have just moved to Germany. Later on I'll be buying a large glass cigar humidifier where I'll be storing at least...
