This was the first time I've heard of Da Yu Ling tea. I googled it while I watched the video and wow, it's pricey stuff. That was about $10 worth of leaves there, wasn't it?

Just checked the prices at the vendor I got it from again... it was 4-5 dollars worth of tea. I've never had Da Yu Ling before, mostly because yes it is very very pricey.

I just ordered some samplers from Tea From Taiwan, and one of them is 7g of Da Yu Ling for $4. Giving it a shot, but I kinda hope I don't like it.

Just looking at the brew color and the leaves, that does not look like a very good one. That is also extremely expensive.

Mine or Maudeebs?

This one was delicious, but I've been told by the vendor that there are 3 maybe 4 higher grades of DYL than this. But I was amazed at how strong this could be brewed while still producing an incredibly delicious steep.

I have been a bit busy tonight... A lot of people have been asking about pouring kyusu's to avoid clogs. So I didn't quite intend for this to be the direction of this video, but thats what this next video becamse about after a bit of filming.

For you teaware enthusiasts out there, I also resumed filming part of my teaware collection. First up is my Xu De Jia Celadon pieces, showing sort of three different levels of staining. That can be seen here:

Any Japanese teaware lovers has probably read "first Raku, second Hagi, and third Karatsu" while I have no raku, and hagi in abundance, I decided to film my only Karatsu yaki piece by Kimita Kaoru.

Enjoy!

In the pouring Video.... those blue ones were a Teachat SO... We haven't had one for quite some time though I hear some are in the works.

In the teaware video the celadon ones are from Redblossom in San Fransico.

Thanks, Adam. Your celadon from Taiwan is different than mine, but like you tea has stained a cup that I use a lot,(My celadon from Thailand seems to shine more & be the same inside & outside. I hope to post photographs someday.)

I finally got around to making another video! Woo hooo! This is a bunch of ramblings over some Shincha. I cover everything from my new tea table/board/ surface, the effects of heat on tea brewing, to a dead electric hotplate. Oh yeah of course I tried to throw in a few educational bits about Shincha as well, though nothing that most people on the forum do not already know.
