Re: Water Water Everywhere... What’s Your Water?

With such a clear map I’ve got to set up to the plate and deliver :shock: let’s see if Christmas Day or next day is a winner. I’m basically next to the Naval Academy in downtown Annapolis, so those Walmart’s are like 25-45minures away, uhhhh. Gotta walk a mile to... go on our Merry Merry Christmas ...

Re: Water Water Everywhere... What’s Your Water?

Sounds like a scam, honestly. Even if this system can rearrange water molecules (and I'm pretty sure it's not possible, science-wise), I fail to see how it should be more beneficial than normal water. The molecules are the same, are they not? Of course. That's the immediate first conclusion that I ...

Re: Water Water Everywhere... What’s Your Water?

I don't know if this should be a whole new topic, but what is everyone's thoughts on "structured water". I read somewhere about the guy from Mei Leaf mentioning he used reverse osmosis and a Grander water system https://www.grander.com/intl-en/ . Now I'm not trying to offend anyone, but I'm very ske...

Re: Whole room humidifiers for storing puerh?

I can't comment on whole room storage, but if you have radiators you can use one of these to increase humidity: https://goo.gl/images/rzt2RY I don't really know how they're called in English. You basically fill them with water and hang them to the radiator. They work well if the room is not too big...

Whole room humidifiers for storing puerh?

I'm new to the world of puerh and live in Maryland (east coast - US). I'd like to start building a collection of cakes that will be good in the upcoming decades. We have hot and humid summers and cool to cold winters. Running the heat in November -March dries out the house pretty well. I bough a hyg...

Re: Recommended ripes from YS?

I ordered about a dozen samples. Not much rhyme or reason to choices. I don't really know what I'm doing, but https://yunnansourcing.com/products/2017-yunnan-sourcing-yi-wu-rooster-ripe-pu-erh-tea-cake was my favorite out of all of them. Very interesting tea that changed a lot as the session proceed...

Re: Water Water Everywhere... What’s Your Water?

Rickpatbrown Welcome to TeaForum. I just noticed I was in a conversation a few years ago about bottled water locally sourced in or near Maryland, over at our old forum. Have you come across Mountain Valley Spring ?. I have not tried it yet because it’s by delivery, and I’m not I’m Maryland every mo...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi everyone! Thanks for having a cool place to talk about great tea! How long have you been drinking tea? It's been on and off for the past 10 years and has evolved from Teavanna to mail order to direct buying from suppliers and farmers when I'm lucky. This last obsession with tea has been the most ...

Re: Water Water Everywhere... What’s Your Water?

I posted this in another forum, but looks like this group is a bit more active. I recently spent 6 weeks in Freidburg, Germany (old town) for work. I took my high mountain tea with me and couldn't BELIEVE how much better it tasted! I also was staying right down the street from a super cool tea shop ...
