I have 100 grams of some Wild Lapsang Souchong from Wuyi Origins in my war chest. I'm normally drinking Oolong tea daily but this one calls me from time to time.

That's a good tea! John B. gave me about 15 grams of that a few years ago. Cheers

Chawangshop's 2019 Baoshan Yesheng Hongcha this morning.

I'm trying to find a new office daily drinker, something in the ~$.10-.15 per gram price range that I can safely buy a kilo or two of. I was hoping Farmerleaf would release a new bath of their Jingmai sun-dried black (both spring and autumn of 2019 was outstanding for the price, I've gone through about 800 grams of the latter and just don't get tired of it), in which case that would be my obvious choice, but so far nothing has shown up....

This Baoshan wild tea is a strong contender though. Sweet and almost no astringency, a very good choice for grandpa-style brewing.
