Another 2 round of very long tea session, lasted way over midnight. Met up with another teamaster friend who has been in the trade since childhood (family business) he just publish a book on antique Liu Bao, so the highlight is a 1950s LioBao. The brew is clean, translucent and light amber in color. It is still sweet, thick and juicy for such an old tea. The storage is dry and excellent. He gave me some (10gms) as a gift and for reference.
This guy is in 40s and live a quiet hermit life dedicated to tea. His house is surrounded by nature and birds...a very nice zen place to be. He is humble and quiet and very sensitive towards his perception( taste, sound, smell). It is nice to enjoy tea with him, as tea is just a simple way of life to him and also to me.
Another few tea sessions to go to today
