Yes! I finally got around to buying a tea table. It's been long due to start learning gong-fu.

Long Jing in my cup

I've already ordered some tea, teacups, and a teapot, so I picked other. Of course, none of them have arrived yet, so we'll see.

2010 Shengpu in my cup at the moment.

I just received a box of several different oolongs from Dragon Tea House, but I obviously had ordered them before. :mrgreen: There is also a set of cups from Ralph Nuara on the way, but, I'm counting that as a winter purchase. 8)

I just recently put in my payment for my ROCK, and I think that, along with a hagi kyusu I got from Mago, will be my first arrival for Spring. :D

Next month or so is when I plan on putting out orders for Japanese teas (I need more matcha and sencha). I'll be getting my shincha from Boseong, Korea, hopefully. :mrgreen: There may also be a teapot or other teaware in my future. With my spending habits, it's hard to predict. :lol:

Formosa oolong in my cup today. I'm trying to finish up all the samples I have before I break into the tins.

I plan to buy a real yixing teapot when I return home in 3-4 weeks. Details are still to be worked out, but I'm considering some options from www.zishateapot.co.uk. Since I'm travelling at the moment, the tea options are a bit limited, but I managed to have some DanCong for breakfast, and a nice cup of Tie Guan Yin for starting my day in the guest-office.

I ordered a teapot on Friday. But I guess that doesn't count. So the next thing will be cups. I'm good with tea for a while.
I watched "All in this tea" on Netflix this morning. Very interesting.

Other - probably two of the above.

I just recently ordered some Pu-Erh samples from Jas-eTea. I'll probably be placing another order with them in the near future for a singular type of tea and/or some accessories to enhance my brewing. The tea will be some variety of shu Pu-Erh and the accessories will be a Pu-Erh knife and/or a scale. All of the Pu-Erh I've tried so far has been either loose leaf or mini single-cup sized tuo chas. This upcoming order will be my first beeng, which is kinda exciting.

This TeaDay has started off with come Russian Caravan.

First purchase of spring will be an yixing teapot. I can't analyze this to death anymore. Time to spend some money and see what happens.

Finished the last dregs of sencha this morning.

Only tea for me.

There are several new pots that I would like, but if the urge to purchase any of them becomes too strong then I will split that money between Red Cross and Save The Children in Japan. That will give me more satisfaction than the purchase of another thing ever could.

Hou de's shui xian so far this morning. Perhaps Maiko's sencha maruyama in a few minutes.

Not sure what yet.

Finishing the last of my Black Dragon Pearls today.

More tea for me! I am still in the process of learning what I like/don't like. So I'm kind of putting off buying teaware, although there's many things I'd pretty much snatch up in a moments notice!

I am sure some tea will follow soon, but I made an order just last week before spring so I am good until the harvests start coming in.
