Kaburagien's ``88 nights'' shincha was my favorite tea this month.

However, if I had considered samples then my hands-down fave would have been Postcard Tea's 2004 Huang Zhi Xiang dancong.

I've been drinking shincha exclusively for 4 or 5 days, so I have revolted by having two rock teas today, Jing's gao cong shui xian and Seven Cups' shui jin gui.

I'd have to say my tea of the month has been hojicha. It's just so yummy! It's closely followed by Korean green tea, that stuff is GOOD! :mrgreen:

Pu-erh this morning, with a looooot of iced green tea all day because it was really hot and humid here. Boiling water for a pau d'arco tisane right now.

Shincha Kinari just ousted all other contenders for tortoise's coveted "Tea of the Month" prize. There will be a small ceremony and gift offering in my kitchen this afternoon, after which I am certain Maiko's sales will skyrocket internationally once the news of this award gets out. :lol:

Rainy season is over, now it's even more hot here. I'm avoiding hot tea now expect matcha. Houjicha disappeared way too fast, but somehow started to like cold mugicha more than houjicha, first of all, i can prepare a lot of it quite fast and really simple. Today i probably finished about 3L of mugicha and only one cup of matcha :)

Sencha and matcha from O-cha! Going to start working in some lighter oolongs too.


Kiri-no-mori so far today. I think the nitrogen has officially exited the tea. The first few bowls were rather :| . Now it's starting to come into it's own.
