On the traditional side, I'd pick the 2002 7532, 2001 7542, 2005 8582. On the dry side: the 2007 CNNP Yiwu Big Green Tree, the Changtai 65 or the 2008 Spring of Menghai! I wouldn't say any of the raw cakes I have up are remotely smokey! :)
Thank you! I ordered samples of some of those and a variety of other things :D
Thank you! I really appreciate the purchase! :)

Time for another sale! 18% off through July 1st. Please note it may take 2-3 weeks to ship your order at this time as I'm packaging everything myself! Those of you who have purchased from me know I do my best to protect your tea in transit. Good tea is worth the extra care (and the wait)! :)

I am running a sale through the whole of July: I'm looking for full-time employment, but haven't even heard back yet, so I have no choice but to run another sale since TeaLife is my sole source of income! I wish I had enough sales volume to sustain myself with this business. I'm going to put in everything I've got in July before my savings run out!

18% off sitewide, and everyone gets at least one free sample! Lots of great stuff coming up. No code needed at checkout.

Hey TeaForum!

An 18% off Typhoon Season sale at TeaLife Hong Kong is running through August and September.

Lots of great new stuff added and lots to come! Please do give me a try if you haven't already: I offer a lot of carefully curated teas that aren't available anywhere else online! Thanks to everyone who's purchased over the last two years!

Jay, It's been about a year since I gave your website a good look. I forgot that you are so good at writing about your teas. What a pleasure to read!

Your comments about your selections of dahongpau show what we can learn about a tea & ourselves from experience. Like you, for this particular tea, I have enjoyed drinking a less respected selection more than some very expensive ones. It can be awkward to be with a friend sharing his best version with me who cannot stop from being honest & telling him that it does not thrill me & that I prefer a more "ordinary".....

Teaforum readers, I advise you to take the time to read Jay's comments & brewing suggestions. Some of his teas seem quite expensive but may not really cost much per infusion & for the pleasure derived.

Cheers

Thanks Ethan! Glad you enjoyed the descriptions and I've really learned a ton in the last two years (and still know very little, as I discover when I drink with more experienced folk here)! Good dahongpao is really something special, but some people may indeed prefer cheaper, blended dahongpao, and there's nothing wrong with that. The good stuff takes a lot of experience (and a lot of serious dahongpao drinking) to appreciate what makes it special compared to cheaper versions. There's a lot of very bad 'dahongpao' out there, including many beidou and qidan varietal teas! It's a lot of fun finding (and drinking) the good stuff though!

I joined the very talented Max Falkowitz for dim sum earlier this year. Check out his great article on dim sum in HK!
