I drank some aged sheng today, the 96 orange in orange, and for the first time I differentiated it from the taste of shou. So well, actually, that it was hard to believe I ever mixed up the two. The interesting thing, is that after a few infusions, some characteristics pertaining more to young sheng were brought out. Is this from dry storage? I wonder...

I looked that up right after I posted it and found three different versions of it..adding or taking away a few words.Ladytiger wrote:Real quote "It is better to be deprived of food for three days than for tea for one" Chinese Proverb(the Chinese know that they're talking about!) I think I went once without a meal because of tea.tseirPsaduJ wrote:"It is better to go three days without food, than one without tea"
I don't guarantee that is quoted properly but you get the general idea
Starting today with some Rum tea, I can't believe it's almost gone! I'm also patiently waiting for the samples that Victoria's Own sent me of Oolongs. So I'll have some of those later.
