Thanks. Most of the Chinese people I meet here seem to recognize the gaiwan but have to think for a while before they can come up with a name for it. So far, they have come up with other names but never gaiwan. I guess China is so big that different places may have different names for it.

That is actually a shu Puer tea, so it is a little like wet storage. It is made by the company called in English Six Famous Tea Mountain and is from the year 2004. Here is a better picture so you can read the Chinese printing.

I like the dark shu Puer tea sometimes. I usually have to rinse it two or three times to get rid of the bad tastes, but then it can be very pleasant and relaxing.

Hi Sal, Six famous mountain tea factory, actually is a medium scale puer tea-producig factory in Yunnan. Now there are two biggest and best ones in Yunnan. There are Dayi Puer cake and Xiaguan puer Tuo(with shape like a mushroom). People in GZ or in other places in China prefer Dayi or Xiaguan puer tea first, and the price of Puer cakes from these two companies are the most xpensive. It is said that it is Dayi and Xiaguan who caused puer heat and increased retail price of Puer in 2007, which resulted in Puer bubble last year. Of course, there are still some people like puer cake from other brands. All have their own strength and shortcomings. Different people have their own preference. Good to know that you can drink a Shu Puer tea over 3 years old.

hey! wow! all the way from China? that is pretty cool. My name is Melissa and I am from the LA area. I just started drinking tea... I had to ease into it starting with Iced Tea to hot teas. I love it so much now. I love getting making a nice hot cup of wild berry zinger before I head to work at UMGD. It definitely gives me that long lasting energy I need for the day. Nice to meet you!
