Gotta admire anyone with tea tools that size.

Ditto. I love this warehouse stuff. About a year ago someone posted an article about the process Adagio went through to get their own mixing machine and stats on the machine. I loved that, even though the article was from a third party source, not Adagio.

Very enjoyable. Light bodied, not too astringent at a 3 min steep. Sweet, floral, with a touch of fruit notes...yep, I like it. :)

Here's a thought. Supposing Ilya decided to take a kilo of that lovely tea home with him, wrapping it securely in plastic wrap and for some reason or another he was pulled over. How would you go about explaining to the officer that it is Camellia sinesis and not Cannabis sativa?

Here's another thought...what if his car stash included Pu bricks? Ever heard of mushroom tea?

Oh I am wicked. :twisted:

Interesting, I didn't know how they mass mailed Tea. Seems just like a big wood box to me :P. Whats the wrapping between the box and the tea?

on a side note I tried this tea recently thanks to a friend and like it. Definitely be trying this new crop out!
