Finally Friday TeaDay, 2/15/08

BYOT! Enter TeaChat here, you never know what you may find!

Did you ever spend so much time during the day drinking tea, that you skipped a meal or forgot to eat?

Yes, happens all the time, Tea is mandatory, food is optional
Yes, occasionally
Yes, but very rarely
Never happens because I eat the tea leaves after brewing : )

I've always thought that Li Shan (Pear Mountain) and Ali Shan were different mountains. Are they actually the same?

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...

High Mountain Oolong

Li shan is different from alishan.
Usually Alishan is the pricier of the high mountain oolongs.
Other mountaints include Meishan, Yushan and Wushe.

I don't guarantee that is quoted properly but you get the general idea
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.
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.
I looked that up right after I posted it and found three different versions of it..adding or taking away a few words. :?
