Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

All this talk about danzhu had me dig out some teas for an experiment. Two danzhus & one typical multi-trees gushu. All 2019 Spring harvest. I don’t have the maocha version of the multi-trees, so will have to keep that in mind. Honestly there’s not much difference between the two danzhus. Maybe one ...

Re: NY Times article about beautiful tea

If you ask me tan wearing vest guys are probably worse, haha I agree. Fake tan + vest is an awful combo :mrgreen: treetime I want to assure you that you’re not alone in feeling this way, but I don’t necessarily see gender policing on this forum. There are misinformation, bad judgements, obnoxiousne...

klepto I haven't tried it yet :mrgreen: ...Got distracted by other teas :lol: pantry I had both the 2005 and 2006 in loose leaf form. I can't tell the difference so I bought the 2006 Tai He cake.

klepto Did you manage to grab EoT's Lao Jie Zi in your order too? Wondering if it's worth the hype :lol: vuanguyen Tai He is actually my favorite among Wistaria tea, but I much prefer the 2005 version. Did you get a chance to sample the same tea from the different year? I just had Wistaria's Hotien...

Re: NY Times article about beautiful tea

Only last week, I did a virtual private tea session with one of Wu De's students. It was fantastic! Very meditative and spiritual. I have to ask, was that person a model too? :lol: j/k Honestly I don't think the message they're sending is bad. I like the Taiwanese oolong I got from GTH. Bok I have ...

Re: Making fake tetsubin water for cheap - just add iron egg!
