These pieces are incredibly nice to use. He really understands what the objects are made for as he also is a tea drinker. He is recently working with porcelain again. Berlin exhibition coming soon I think.

Re: Online tea stores dispatching from within the EU?

Thanks will check it out. Ideally I'd like to source different types of tea from the same vendor for convenience but the only places online that cover a wide range of teas in one place seem to be shops like palais or mariagefreres which are on the expensive side.. & :? Exactly... and i would say th...

You can also try to boil the cup a bit, maybe adding some baking soda.

Re: What kind of pot do you think works best for red teas?

I think this pot is not glazed but polished, this is what makes the surface so shiny. Polished yixing-like teapots have been popular in east-Asian countries at some point, I’ve read it has been the case for instance in Thaïlande.

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Just tried this 2kg sheng « melon » 2007 (Mengku factory) bought from Yunnan Sourcing 8 years ago. As good as one would have expected by the rich fragrant smell of the dried melon.
Cheers!
