My new greens from Jing Tea Shop taste excellent brewed in my Hong Il pot, even though I'm not finished experimenting with the exact parameters needed for this pot as compared to a gaiwan. Then I had the penultimate session of 2011 Sencha Otsuusan Karigane from O-Cha. A bag of the 2012 is on the way, along with 2 gyos so I'll probably have just enough time to air out the canisters before the 2012 teas arrive.
Tomorrow I'm going to take photos to share of the TPHK. It's as beautiful as it's delicious!
Tai Ping Hou Kui photos, I cannot wait!
I recently obtained 2 of my fave 4 Chinese greens from an "unlikely source." Although pretty inexpensive, they are both pretty good, I am surprised actually.
Long Jing and Luan Gua Pian are currently back on the menu. It has actually been several years since I have purchased a Chinese green (however thanks mostly to generous TCers, I have managed to have some nice selections from time to time), but I may have to change that.
