I have 2 different ones. One of them is from Tea Emporium which you can order online. Very trustworthy vendor. I have met him in Darjeeling.

some 2008 Yunnan Gold "Jin Si" Golden Tips Black Tea, houde

nice stuff very balanced, found it interesting that when I ate a little bit of mixed nuts with it I did detect a little bit of pepper, which was undetectable before I did so

Darjeeling 2nd flush Risheehat Estate (China-bush/muscatel). Classic old-school Darj flavor profile. Very nice.

Yunnan Noir from Adagio today ...but I mixed in a little Ooooh Darjeeling to smooth it out a bit more.

Adagio's Earl Grey Bravo warms my mug...I'm probably not the only nerd to bring this up on TeaChat, but I thought this would be fun to share: Image

today i tried blending dianhong and qimen (kudos to Marshaln for the suggestion) and it was super! sweet aftertaste of qimen with the robust body of dianhong :)

I just drank a cup of Rishi Tea's China Breakfast, a typical Dian Hong / Yunnan Red tea.

Irish Breakfast, a box of Necco's Sweethearts candies, & some old school science fiction shows complete my Thursday evening. Nothing like a good cuppa to warm up a wintry day! Anyone else getting gob-smacked by another round of snow?
