Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Oh, I recommend after getting greens in the mail to wait 24-48hrs to let tea acclimatize to room temperature, and then to open vacuum pack, reseal, and wait another 24hrs before steeping. Hope you like them. 😅 whoops It’s probably fine, but tomorrow will be better. Since you are in San Francisco, y...

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

I see why you guys like this so much. Umami, bittersweet (maybe due to my brewing, but I enjoy the added dimension to the sweetness and umami), and totally different profile than the yutaka midori @Jo. This is such a nice contrast to my usual teas of roasted TW oolongs, yancha, and aged puer.

I'm wondering if it would be possible to add a save draft option when creating a post. That maybe gets triggered when your going to refresh the page or accidentally do so.

gotta love the creaminess of 60s clay! Shame we miss out on the seal story!

Re: Yixing

Alright, the seal. I found a pot that was strikingly similar to mine on Instagram and thought they might be long lost brothers (originally thinking maybe made by the same Potter). They were the same size, same clay texture, flat inner base, similar workmanship (from what I could tell) and what I tho...

Re: What White Are You Drinking

Has anyone tried the Old Arbor White from White2Tea. This is the most expensive white tea I have bought but is extremely up my alley. Unfortunately, I had a hard time the other day with getting leaves off and so only a few steeps were in a sweet spot of not bitter then just weak. Hopefully next tim...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Having some chen unroasted winter harvest and it is very good, I just had the spring recently and I like the winter better this year. There's cream, citrus and spice notes, really enjoying this one.
