No worries, only ads age.
And I have time to figure a brew vessel.
I'm leaning towards an expreso cup
with the lid on top, as a gaiwan....

I passed on this otti as I'm a little busy just now but I will be drinking some 90's sheng whilst keeping up to date with this thread over the next few weeks.

What brewing method are you using Chip?

Hooray! Can't wait...!

I love walking into the room where I keep my pu.... it smells really great, especially in the summertime.

First of all, I will post the "KEY" which is mixed up so members can blind taste if they so choose ... or can see exactly wassup! So, look for the KEY at the very beginning of this topic. The KEY is not visible unless you follow the directions there!

Brandon's 8582 and Nada's Bulang each have 9-10 grams. Brandon's Malaysian stored brick, 5-6 grams.

I will attempt to follow directions offered by Brandon and Nada. Brandon is compiling directions which he will post. I will include these in the original post for this topic!

:lol: Still lingering aroma ... really wild. I was worried that when I walked into the PO the smell would cause concerns, but fortunately I did not notice anything. So the aroma in the house must have occurred during the breaking and packaging process?
