Ah, you must be his cousin in Hong Kong. Did you ask for the discount?
Let me know how you like it. I just drank some of it this evening. My wife also gives it a thumbs up. She is a bigger critic than I. Can you imagine?
Yep! That's me. The owners were such nice people. I sat there for 2 hours chatting with them about all things tea related. And yes, they did give me a nice discount
The organic TG is unlike other TG's I've tasted. Although it's not as sweet as regular TG, the taste profile is much fuller.
I'm going back today to watch them charcoal roast some tea and to buy a smaller gaiwan. Let me know when you next come to HK, and we can go do some tea tasting![/quote]
Yes, very nice people. I like the mother quite a lot. Watching the father roast should be an interesting experience. I forgot that they told me the aged TGY is also organic. They also told me that before 2000, none of the farmers used pesticides where their farm is. They couldn't get any locally. Now, everyone uses them.
I also bought a small 60ml gaiwan that I use for certain teas, mainly to taste when I am alone. Save some of that tea for TokyoB! I'll let you know when I come to HK again.
