Re: How Much Green Tea in a Day

Now that I'm working from home for the rest of 2020 (at least) I'm drinking a little more tea than normal. It has been great! However, and although I'm not generally a person who is worried about tea consumption and health, I don't want to find that after months of drinking more tea than I was prev...

FODMAPS / SIBO and Pu'Erh

Due to some ongoing stomach issues (relatively minor - nothing serious!) it was recommended by my medical practitioner that I try a low FODMAPS eating plan as I may have SIBO. A year ago I have a food sensitivity (blood test for inflammation) test and was avoiding certain foods but I'm still having ...

Re: Is tea a spiritual activity for you?

This one doesn't have a yes/no answer, so I can't answer the poll. Sometimes I'm just thirsty, but want something more interesting than water. Sometimes I need a caffeine lift. Sometimes, I want to enjoy and appreciate flavor, nuance, and feel part of the process from plant roots and the life of th...

Re: Aging puerh: what is your setup?

Noonie I wouldn't say you need to add more Bovedas. However it would help the pumi to reach the RH equilibrium faster. As you said, long term amount of needed Bovedas is related to the open airspace and not the amount of cakes (at correct RH). As a compromise, I often swap my Bovedas to fully charg...

Re: How to get into the the tea industry/advice from vendors on how to proceed

I have been obsessed with tea for years and throughout that entire time I have wanted to work in the tea industry. I am coming to a crossroads in my life as far as making decisions for my career and life. I would love to hear advice from vendors and people who work in tea on the subject of getting ...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I have a pumidor question and didn't want to post a new topic... I use bovida packs in an old wine fridge. The setup has been working well and with two bovida packs the inside is around 65 RH. When I put more tea in the fridge (say adding 4-5 cakes to the existing 10 or so) do I need more bovida pac...

Re: Researching a new Kyusu

Did you settle on something Noonie? I'm having similar Kyusu plans and would greatly appreciate some good resources. Not yet Iizuki . Funny I had one in my cart the other day from a japanese tea and teaware vendor from west coast of Canada but didn't pull the trigger. I just had a sencha in the one...

Tea and Gut Health

I've read several times on different sub-forums here about how tea can positively or negatively impact your gut/stomach. I would like to better understand the reasons for this, possible impact from different types of tea, etc. I don't have the best bowels (won't go any further! lol), and I think it ...

Re: Resting Water

I never heard of or tried this, but it seems logical. Would the type of tea you're brewing matter? Meaning if I already like the taste of my water (on its own), and I like it heated for sencha, pu'erh, etc., would I notice it more with a greener tea versus a darker one? And are you putting the water...

Daily Tea Routines

I'm interested to hear about your daily tea routines - when you have your first session, what teas you drink when and why, whether one day varies to the next, do you treat weekdays different from weekends, how many different types (e.g., ripe vs. raw, sencha vs. gyokuro, wuyi vs. dancong) you have o...

Re: Shincha 2020, "the Year of COVID-19"

My shincha (and other Japanese tea) from Yuuki-Cha arrived from DHL in less than a week. Ended up getting almost a kilo of tea to last me at least through the year. Shipping was $20 which was a lot less than what I was initially quoted. Picked up the following teas: Shincha Kagoshima Sencha Shimofu...
