As a child, my mother put Campho-Phenique on everything: cuts, cold sores, hangnail, bruises. I am thoroughly familiar with the smell of camphor!

I think you can get camphor oil at any health food store. Although, I don't know why anyone would want it!

Unless you got some elsewhere, I am pretty sure I left out the bad stuff (tongtinq brick, xg tuocha), and added the Haiwan Brick. We'll call it Brandon's Revised Taste of Mellowness.

The Changtai Banna Toucha is worth it as a cheap pu, the rest are crap IMO.

Yep, good enough for me to be a "daily" drinker for awhile.

Well, with a few hints from Polyhymnianmuse I found at least one way to load a table in TeaChat, using a free program called SRip32 that converts a Word Table to a gif file, whatever that means!

So, here is a slightly worn-for-wear table showing who thought what of the Taste of Mellowness shu samples. Anyone else who would like to chime in, PM me, I'd love to include more ratings. As you can see there is variation, but not so much that our collective experience couldn't serve as a shopping guide.

My own interpretation of the ratings:

5 - I loved it
4 - I liked it
3 - It was OK
2 - Didn't care that much for it
1 - Hated it
