Yes, I certainly expect there to be this much fuss over the oolong harvest.

Ying De. I remember because I had to look it up. Is that the Premuim Gold or the Pre Qing-Ming?

I got confused because I have been lately involved with a medium/light oxidation oolong from Wuyi called Da Ye. The one that ABx was so helpful about. The Ying De is a name new to me.

It was a sample and unmarked, but by looking at the pictures I would say it was the Premium, as the leaves were dark.

It was a nice morning cup.

Surely you jest LawnmowerMan.

Trying to motivate myself to go through around 100 registrations and decide who is naughty or nice. Tea would help.

There is only one TeaFridge...all other imitations are simply refrigerators with tea in them.

I, of course, am hoping for 2x the fuss if I have to generate it all myself.

Had a good laugh out loud at that one. Of course, you realize that the not knowing means #3 is just around the corner ....

Spring Darjeeling is in my tea cabinet and is quite yummy. Started the day with Irish Breakfast, moved on to White Peony and ended with Chiran Kanayamidori (thanks, Joel!), which was really nice with sushi.

Pre ordered Shincha - Uji Miyabi fom O-Cha. I believe they said it would ship around May 10-11. Yunnan Gold again this morning. Didn't finish my cup on the way to work yesterday.. Tried it on the way home when it was cool. Darn that tea is good no matter what you do with it!!! Jim

:shock: Noooo way!!! Two is plenty.

Placed a tea order today & the strangest thing happened...out of the 5 teas I ordered, only one of them was black. Looking forward to the arrival of my orange blossom oolong. Off to make some white blueberry to finish the day.

Want some sweet tea? :wink:

At least there is always some sencha in my teafridge imitation. I didn't run out out of sencha this year unlike certain Moddi... :D

Starting this new Teaday kind of early today (It is now 3 AM for me) with my usual Yunnan Golden Tips

Am I the only one who still waits for her spring tea? Ah, no. There are five of us according to the poll. It sure feels lonely :( ... I ordered 3 shincha's from o-Cha and and several 2008 green teas from TeaSpring. And I am thinking about spring Darjeeling's.

I am drinking Rishi's Silver Needle. I like it better than Adagio's Silver Needle. Oops, did I say it out loud? So sorry! But it tastes fuller, rounder and sweeter somehow.
