I hope you are joking Tead Off. To make a joke out of something people practice and dedicate their life to is very off. Because it's not in your head, doesn't mean its not there. Specially around us tea heads.
We all need to check ourselves out sometime. Right, Tim? I find a lot of humor observing all kinds of things including religious practicioners and tea drinkers.
I guess you are a funny guy then, Teadoff. I "check-out" when I am not drinking tea.
Actually, I don't know what I am. And, when I drink tea, I don't know what I am drinking until memory (the past) names it. Then, what am I experiencing?; the tea or the accumulation of knowledge (the past)? Do we experience anything directly without naming it, categorizing it, analyzing it?

With due respect, how can we know what chaqi is? Certainly, it is not what a group of tea drinkers agree it is. If we are honest with ourselves, we don't really know what anything is.

Do you get a very calm and relaxed feeling from drink sheng or shu? Or is there any different in term of cha qi between sheng and shu? I hope I'm not trying to split hair here?
I can get the relaxed feeling from both. But I seem to get it more from a shu, I have a 2003 7581 brick that makes me feel great, just very relaxed and calm, without any cares. Almost all the shengs I own are very young so I tend to get a more awake/alert feeling from them as they are so strong, but I imagine a aged sheng will give you a calm feeling as well.
Hi, can you clarify for me what 7851 refers to?
