Re: Yixing

I have this pot. I like it. what type of tea do you use it for? It looks like it might be a nice shape/size for yancha. I’ve been using it for yancha, and occasionally Dan cong. The size, shape, and pouring speed work well for it. Craftsmanship is very good (half handmade). I don’t own any antiques...

Re: Can autumn harvest tea be this expensive?

I have been observing Denong’s prices for a few years. Their biannual price increase can be extremely high. Their 100g famous mountain cakes from Spring 2018 went from $190 to $299 in just two years

Re: Telling the difference between sheng and shu when both have been stored Hong Kong style?

Honestly from what I'm reading everybody pretty much was trying to say the same thing but framed it differently. - Shu pu was invented in the 70s, to feed the growing demand of wet storage puerh served with dim sum restaurants in HK - This is why some people say shu pu tries to emulate naturally age...

Re: Telling the difference between sheng and shu when both have been stored Hong Kong style?

I'd certainly be interested to hear if anyone has a different explanation. I heard there was a Instagram discussion about this recently, but as I'm not on that platform I don't know what the counterpoints are. If I have time later I'll try to dig around a bit in Chinese sources. Ah, yes, I saw thos...

Sorry, I wasn't clear. The shipping back and forth was all in 2011. I've had the cake since then in my trunk.
I prefer @klepto’s version of your tea’s journey :mrgreen:

@Justin Glad you’re enjoying the tea! I think the Lan Yin is excellent for its price :)
