It's the end of world...

...and you have to pick your last drink. What tea would you pick? :mrgreen:

(Originally, I thought of one tea for the rest of your life... but... naaahhhh)

Edit #2: Yeah, let's go also pick one tea for life :)

I would say a big chawan of koicha. (Ummon no mukashi or Manten)

If it had been one tea for the rest of my life: gyokuro (Tsuru Jiru Shi, Yume no Ukihashi or Tenka Ichi)

AliShan Traditional from Floating Leaves Tea. Out of stock, hopefully my wish will be magically granted.

If its truly the end of the world as in money will have no meaning in say a long enough time for me to receive the tea and drink it, I might just binge on a tea that is critically acclaimed, as in perhaps buy a chunk of 60's Red label and just brew into oblivion.

Or buy a large amount of Premo matcha and whisk and drink till the world is no more.


As for one tea for the rest of my life,

I feel I like variety too much to even contemplate a decent answer to that.

phew, that topic title was a little distressing.

Now I know it's not actually the end of the world.....

Maybe detail brewing a nice bit of oolong over a month or so :mrgreen:

One tea for life, hmmm. Tongs of some top notch new sheng maybe, it can grow old with me then.

For the last drink I'll take a da hong pao - assuming I'll have enough time for a good gong fu session. Oh, and I'm still in search of the *ultimate* dhp!

Tea for life... that would have to be a traditional TGY (40-50% oxidized and roasted). My favorite was from Floating Leaves last winter. Unfortunately, Shuiwen's stash was small and I ran out of the carefully rationed 2 oz I bought by April. Haven't had a memorable traditional TGY since :(

Hm, tough choice. Last drink might just have to be my CurrantBerry blend...

One drink for eternity... probably Osmanthus Oolong. I haven't had it in at least 6 months, but I can still remember so much about it - a tea that stays with you like that is a treasure.

I just hope the next time I get it that I haven't built it up too much in my head, and it turns out to be not as amazing as I remember :shock: :cry:

That's the worst! I've definitely had teas I loved and by the time I got back to them again, my tastes have changed enough I don't really dig them anymore. Always sad.

Hm... One tea for life would probably be a non-roasted TGY. Final cup... Something with a lot of vodka in it.

:shock: A good point though... if not tea, probably Scotch.
