KLP 1 and KLP 2 orders are packed and should be sent out tomorrow. I didn't expect to send out this early, but I think the order is enough for the first round.

Image

Doing such bulk for the first time, I did a mistake about estimating weights. Tea + Box does not equal to the weight to be sent. I have forgot to include the weight for Canister, Paper Inside the box to fill it up, Additional Samples and Wrapping.

Once I send it, I will let you know the Tracking number and the postage difference. This is my fault, so I take responsibility of it but if you feel like paying I am fine also :)

I'm looking forward for you guys to receive it and hearing your comments.

For those that are still interested, this KLP is still available as the price and stock are still available.

Dass, nowadays rarely we find anyone who is willing to share, especially if he/she posses good stuffs. Or at least not willing to release at a reasonable price.
I'm grateful to have more generous tea friends like auhckw and you from the other part of the world.

I believe when there is a good tea or good deals, it is enjoyable to share the info. Everyone should get the chance to try it or have the opportunity to buy it. I think Dass share the same generosity. We do keep each other inform whenever something interesting pop-up in which tea shops.

But over here, we have to be careful to whom the info is being shared. When the tea is not spotted, it can be on the shelf for very long time. As it aged, and if it turned out good. Some tea tycoon can buy the whole bulk. Everything. Don't be surprised by the buying power of some people here.

I have heard about tea tycoon buying the entire bulk of a particular tea and telling the shop never to sell that tea again. If the shop can find it, they must sell to the him only. Some of these tycoon wants the entire bulk all by themselves, which makes their purchase more valuable in the future.

But one thing for sure... if a tea shop did something bad in their tea... news will spread faster than good news :mrgreen:

Quick update. Just came back from the tea shop that is selling this...

Only this morning I wrote about tea tycoon and last Sat, someone has took the whole bulk for the Naked version.

No more Naked version in the tea shop. But there are still available stocks for the Cover version.

Lucky I made extra purchase of the Naked version. I have some stocks left, but not much.

Glad you like it. The shop has a dedicated yixing pot just to brew this tea. After many many many times of brewing with this tea... any tea that goes in will carry the camphor taste.

A very strong camphor taste tea indeed :)

PS: This tea is still not aged yet. More road to go... :mrgreen:

Just picked up my package today at the post office, and it is the best-defended pouch of tea I've ever received. The black color of those boxes is solid tape, and inside some crumpled paper in the box was a tin, and the tea is in a bag inside the tin inside the box. All I can say so far is that the aroma is the strongest I've ever encountered in a puerh--wow. I will give supper a bit of a chance to digest before I take on this powerful stuff.

Agreed, the leaves of this tea are extremely pungent!

This tea has an deep power to it still, very strong, but it also has the qualities of age seeping in. I am surprised at the power the tea still packs, though... whew! It reminds me of a younger xia guan, in a way, but not with the smokiness. Very nice!

Here's the first steep, at 10 seconds (after a 30 second wash and 2 minute rest; I used two clumps, which were still pretty solid after the wash, so I went longer for my first steep... second steep was 5 seconds and even more powerful than the first).

Great tea! I'm looking forward to how it changes as the teeth-kicking portion starts to subside... :D

I had this today also. 5g:150ml (may be too little for some).

I prefer it lighter so I enjoyed the later infusions than the front.
