Most definitely! I have neglected fave Chinese greens for too long. Selections would include ...

Tai Ping Hou Kui (Cha Wang preferred, and authentic)

Lu An Gua Pian (ditto, Cha Wang would be nice, and definitely authentic!) I recently saw our host added this one.

Zhu Ye Qing (though someone gave me some earlier this year, I have not purchased any for several years)

Long Jing (authentic West Lake, high brow stuff) However, I just received a really nice tin of authentic West Lake brought back from China. It is supposed to be a selection "that never leaves China."

doing a pretty good job at occupying myself with good stuff to explore so there's really nothing I am in a rush to drink

However I do have a gap that is not filled...A sweet, light and gentle black tea for those late night sessions
The da yeh taiwanese black fit the bill, but now its all gone :wink:

I would echo this, but they are not as high a priority as the Chinese greens at this point in time.

Began the TD with a WTE-East sample of Asatsuya with the Mrs. Nice, I do like the Asatsuya varietal. :mrgreen:

Norbu's Black Ruby is a really nice mellow Taiwanese black tea, and I haven't had any for TOO LONG! Must rectify that shortly.

Now drinking some Norbu White Oolong (another lovely Taiwanese tea).

Remove the Black Ruby from the 'haven't drunk for too long' list. Mmmm.

Its been quite a while since I have had both Gyokuro or Matcha, but the tea I honestly have not had for too long is Green Anxi TGY. Thankfully that should be remedied soon as a few samples arrived in a box today.

I believe there are more members who have yet to respond. Therefore yesterday's TeaDay will continue into today.

Please continue to share what is in your cup with us.

Discuss the TeaDay topic.

Or create a new topic.

We are looking forward to sharing this TeaDay with everyone. Bottoms up!

There are several teas I haven't had for too long, mostly green, including Tai Ping Hou Kui, Lu An Gua Pian, Ding Gu Da Fang; Gyokuro; Sencha 7132 and Yutaka Midori (I particularly miss the LE)

Now enjoying some TGY, and planning to open my bag of Tsuen / O-cha Uji Asamushi Sencha "Hana no Kaori" very soon :mrgreen:

Not really. I have plenty left to explore before I begin to look back and long for any particular tea.

Started the day with YM from O-Cha. I have a busy day of setting up utlities/cable/preparing to move into my apartment on Friday... I will need rejuvenation with some midday matcha most definitely!

I've been clearing my tea cabinet by disposing of teas not worth drinking, giving away teas I just don't want anymore, and finishing all the odds and ends. As part of this I just had a session of 2010 jasmine pearls. Now jasmine was my most favorite tea during my first two years of tea drinking, but last year everything but these tasted artificial and this year the pearls were just disappointing.

I still long for that occasional session with an excellent jasmine. Help may be at hand, since I'm thinking of ordering some 2011 jasmine silver needles from Rishi. And since teaware lust is contagious, I'm considering the 2 ounce kyusu.....

:shock: Oh Nooooo ... don't throw those old teas away. Why not start a 'TeaBath' reserve? :idea:

If you have never tried it, a TeaBath is a very relaxing way to either start or end your day. I have been doing this for many years after early on making many purchases unprudently and having many stale or teas I just didn't like. :mrgreen:

Guaranteed to reduce wrinkles and burn fat ... making you look 20 years or more younger!!! :wink:

I still have a lot of Bai Mu Dan that I've never been able to brew properly. And now that I've seen your close up photo, tea baths overcome even bad hair days!
