Re: Oh no... another tea blog!!

I just updated my blog with a new post.
In it, there is a picture of a well stored 20 years old Puer. Old sheng puer must look something like that, dark reddish or maroon. The tea leaves should be seen individually most of the time in the pressed cakes. It should smell nice and clean without any funny odor.
Many fake old tea is blackish and the tea leaves cannot be distinguished and have undesirable odor. But this is just a general guide and some authentic old tea can differ in some unique case, e.g. Old Chien Liang Cha, may look different.
So if you hunt for old tea, remember that look.

Cheers!

Hi Teachatters,
I just post an article of a rare"tea" call Ancient Dragon Pearl Tea 陳年龍珠茶. For you curiosity and knowledge. This tea is very highly priced and rare but may sounds unappetizing, but it is part of tea history.

Enjoy!

Cheers! :D

Hi Teachatters,

We had a good discussion on Kyusu last week I have just added an article on it. The higher resolution photos will enable to show more detail on its beauty. Please check it out.

Hi Alex,
Thanks and great that you score one of the Tachi Shigaraki too. I recalled that the pots went off quite fast and only available in very limited numbers. I grabbed 3 of different sizes and enjoy brewing them. The feel of the pot is really nice.

Cheers! :D

Amazing teapots Alex!

May I ask you how the Shigaraki performs, particularly with regard to body and aftertaste? :D

Teaism can answer this better so I'll bow out to him for a better explanation then what follows......

I normal don't find japanese pots to need seasoning/breaking in, but I can tell this pot currently needs a little breaking in, I feel its a little hungry at the moment. Certainly gives a smoothness and length to the after taste and softens the high notes in my sencha, I'm currently getting a slight dryness in the after-taste, again the pot just needs using more (fine by me :lol: ).. Its a very very forgiving pot.....absorbing any mistakes in over brewing with ease, but its more balanced then say the Nosaka reduction :mrgreen:
