This morning I had two infusions of Jade TiQuanYin (teaspring) in my brand new, first-ever gaiwan . Yum. A little more green than I'd expected but slightly sweet, and I like it.
Now I'm onto White Darjeeling (adagio) with some Rosebuds tossed it.
I love Puerh but that Puerh that you've head does not sound like one that I would enjoy. It is possible to find good ripe puerh which is not musty, that is the stuff that I drink.
