Wow nice coincidence. I had DXS 2014 yesterday. Lincang still have some very remote area with biodynamic tea. They are really nice and good value.


Cheers! :D

Given a choice, I would rather buy my favourite bottled water but out of convenience, tap water is still practical for daily brew. I normally order 120 litres (minimum amount) of natural spring water from wholesaler and hate to keep up with storage space.

If there are still issue, I may have to revert back to the water wholesaler.Sigh!

Hmmm...overdrunk the DXS2005 as a result. So officially there is only one (overdosed) Pu for today. :D

Cheers! :D

What a coincidence. I've just finished DXS (forgot the year). :D

I've bought this Bing as a supporting role for Xigui last year, a lot cheaper than Xigui. Have been into Lincang stuffs lately....Puerh prices are crazy these days :?


I also brewed some DXS today, from this year's harvest. What a nice coincidence! :lol:

I also enjoy this cake a lot! Very interesting tea. It makes me curious to try the purple stamp, being pressed for the same tea house. Have you tried it?

No I have not, but share your curiosity. May be worth a sample the next time I place an order......

Today I have been sipping a sample of "2006 Little Gold Melon Shu" pu'erh which I received from White2Tea with my order of other pu'erh teas.

It is a very nice tea with a very nice sweet and creamy taste.

The amount of tea used was 6.8gms for around 150 - 200ml of water and I am now one my 4th stepping which I brewed for around 30 to 40 seconds.

p.s. I am a beginner when it comes to pu'erh and I really prefer teas that are not very astringent so please take that in mind when reading my comments.

Today is my second go-round with TU's 2014 Gao Shan Zhai. I'm struggling to pick up the aromas here, perhaps my fall allergies are interfering? But their Qi and flavor descriptors are accurate once again, so far my favorite 2014 offering from the Urchin.

Today enjoying more of Norbu's 2008 bamboo-aged Yiwu, a favorite that continues to shine. Glad I still have a fair stock of it....and wish I'd bought more. It does well in careful gongfu brewing for one, or thermos brewing for all day or for a crowd. Still caramel-sweet, herbal and earthy notes, grounding, comforting and delicious.

i've also had shengpu that had the word "shu" in the name. transliteration is a strange thing

2012 bulang from EoT. So very powerful! I try to brew this tea with a lighter touch and lower leaf ratio than I usually use. Plenty of bitterness to keep in check, as you would expect with young bulang. Beautiful high notes that enter the upper palate after swallowing, lingering in the nasal cavity. Both the taste and fragrance linger for an impressively along time

So we managed to get up a group to drink old tea in Singapore. Yay!!!! A lot of the more serious drinkers don't seem to be on teach at though. We went to Michael's place called Enjoy Tea. He had proper brewing utensils and good water which a lot of the shops in Chinatown did not seem to have. He was a gracious host indeed because the first time I went in there I was empty handed and he still brewed me his 3 best teas which were very good yancha indeed. So we met up yesterday and had a brew of Gyg beeng fr 60s
Ma Huang fr 70s
Per war 4 gold coin liu bao
We all ended up getting tea drunk after those brews and I really enjoyed meeting up Singaporean tea drinkers. :D :D

Drinking the 08 Lin Ying Hao Longpa gushu from Chawang shop today. Nice semi-mature flavors. Leather, wood, grain, dried orange peel and a floral hint on the finish. Good stuff.
