Re: Anyone ever bought Chinese greens from Tea Trekker or Seven Cups?

Haven't had green from Tea Trekker, but can confirm that their Nepalese and Darjeeling are excellent. Was disappointed with their lower cost Lapsang, so I think the quality of the tea is reflected in the price. from someone in Phoenix whose family has a farm in Fenghuang shan, So they all live in Ph...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

Thank you, everyone, for the kind suggestions! I happened to order a selection of HY Chen's oolong from chofmann just a few days ago, and looks like it's just shipped! I think it's very likely to be similar to Dong Ding like chofmann suggested, with fruity and floral notes. I didn't actually get the...

Re: What Oolong Are You Drinking

ing this traditionally processed oolong. Forget about the name and concentrate on: sounds like by traditionally processed, you mean hand-rolled. Is the tea green? If so, it is not roasted or perhaps roasted very lightly. Do you have a name of the mountain, region.... it was grown on? Do you have th...

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

I feel a bit uneasy using bottled spring water (even if by gallon) to brew tea. I can't quite carry those big refillable 5-gal bottle, so that's not an option either. Where I live, tap water is drinkable. I purify it using charcoal and let it sit overnight. Works quite well.

Re: Wistaria Teahouse

Never been to Wistaria in person, but had mail ordered some of their teas. I tried 4 different puerh. What really blew me away was the effect those teas had on my body, rather than the taste (taste was very pleasant, too, but not particularly special.) I don't get this sensation consistently from pu...
