Pictures of some key people in the pu world

by apache » Sep 14th, '12, 09:09

I always have a fascination of what are their faces behind the pseudonyms and names on the wrappers of cakes. Here are some of them:

So who knows, if one day I bump into some of them in tea exhibitions, I should know who they are.

I hope I don't get sued by any of them of infringing their privacy ....

This can be a very stupid question, why? Were there some major changes with Changtai? or due to burst of pu bubble in 2007?

Yeah, Changtai kinda got screwed in the bubble, and there are rumours that they are on the verge of bankruptcy. Notice nobody has talked about Changtai teas since 07

People have talked about the superpremium line from '10, especially the Kunlushan. Changtai didn't follow that through with anything of note in '11 or '12.

a few of those photos make me ask, "since when can Chinese grow facial hair?" I think the gray-haired bearded man in one of the photos may be a Westerner though, but it's hard to tell without seeing his face

Uh, what world do you live in? Plenty of Chinese people can grow plenty of facial hair, including yours truly

Usually in this kind of company-hosted conference, the host would only invite key people who would pat their back :P

It always amazes me how we could jump from something completely different to facial hair? Am I on the other forum Badger and Blade about beard and shaving? :lol:

Now, is having sideburns help one cycling faster? :?: :mrgreen:

The third guy looks familiar. I want to say that it's either the owner of Wisteria tea house or TeaParker. I also would like to apologize in advance for associating the two.

Neither.
It is Paul Lim, or Master Lim Ping Xiang, a tea master from Malaysia. And my friend and tea teacher for the past 15 odd years.
