I've heard nothing but encouraging news about tea in 09. Happy pu year indeed!
One of my new years resolutions (besides quitting smoking, which has been one for four years now haha
) is to drink new teas. Teas that I'm not familiar with. I'm going to relax on pu in 09.
Although there are quite a many oolongs I want to try from different places, I'm probably going to be going hardcore into pu this year, building up a nice collection of cakes for ageing.
Also aged pu is an interest, I'll be trying out some samples from a few places over the year of some of the good aged stuff I can find (and afford)
Also, I hope to start my blog sometime in early 09. It's going to be a lot of pu, but pretty much anything that I feel like reviewing. I'm going to be doing basic reviews of the teas and teaware that I try out, but I want to take it in the direction of a sort of podcast... doing video reiews since my new laptop has a built in webcam. I will probably end up rambling on about things in my videos but I want to just show the tea, brew up an infusion or two and say a few words about taste, aroma, if I would buy it again, etc.
So much to do...
