Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Lac63 I'm sure you can find beautiful ceramic bowls in Spain from local contemporary potters. The bowl below is from a local potter. After a couple of days using subpar oolong teabags while traveling (hopefully not to be repeated), I'm now back home enjoying HY Chen's Charcoal Medium Roasted 100 yea...

Re: looking for a side-handle kyusu

After I posted my reply above I realized that I actually don't use any of my high fired Tokoname for the gamut of teas, I stick to sencha or oolong for each pot. Many of these sites post interior shots, so you can see if it's glazed. Your best bet though is probably a porcelain kyusu. Elegant antiqu...

Re: Ethan Kurland

Thanks, Victoria. You so kindly have given how I post more thought than I have. Besides usual awkwardness with computer stuff, I am dumbfounded by suddenly getting into a cooperative that usually takes 1 1/2 to 2 years of waiting to move to the top of the list. It only took several months for me. N...

It sounds great Victoria!

My most recent session with a hongcha was a Sun Moon Lake ruby 18 organic from the old Japanese tea farm.
What is the “old Japanese tea farm” ? :)

Re: Lets talk about Da Yu Ling

Many Lishan are pretty close. It is the same mountain after all, Dayuling being the highest place. I take a good Lishan any day over the likely fake DYL with the heftier price tag. Agreed. Thats what I drink the most of. I received some Dayuling from Chen, but Ive been holding on to it. ++ I also a...

Re: Show Off Your Pots

This is the Show Off Your Pots Topic. Share how you store and display your wares. I decided to come out of the closet with most of my pots, so that I could enjoy seeing them. Only problem, I didn't get a glassed enclosed display cabinet, I got very modern open shelves from Spain made by Treku. My c...

Getting Organized

Share how you Store and Organize your teas.

I finally organized many of my teas in these white lidded bins from Ikea. They glide out nicely, and look much better than the mix of cardboard and bamboo boxes I was using before.

The last of my stash of 2016 Best Bug Bitten from Hau Ying Chen. Been slowly sipping down my stores of his tea as they have gathered up. I’ve yet to be disappointed with any of his teas.
OK, so totally cool line up of photos, a drip licious-Pentaptych love it.
