would you shower with your pu?

One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.

will you supply the oolong sarah? :P


The man should supply the oolong, that's what my mother always told me. Although I'd appreciate being consulted about which particular oolong you might choose to shower in. I do have my favorites. :wink:

Your mom sounds pretty cool, but what makes you so sure that Puerhking is male? That photo is a mite blurry, and this is the internet.

That's either some sort of bondage or pu abuse!

Mom also told me a couple of other valuable wisdoms applicable to this situation:

1. King usually means boy, and queen usually means girl (although certainly i have met some clear exceptions to the 2nd half of that rule).

2. If someone is going to shower in oolong for you, there should be non-blurry photographic evidence of such.

Part 2 is consistent with the famous Chip-ism... if there's no photo to prove it, then it didn't happen... and so I'll wait for the photographic proof to be posted here. It IS about tea, after all.

That you love you pu has never been in doubt. We were just wondering about the manner in which you love your pu. We are just wondering if you have "tendancies" that we need to know about.

By the way, have you tried any of the Yuannian Tea? I went ahead and bid on that "Premium Alliance" cake. Nice background on the company, btw. Where do you come up with all this info? It's amazing!

I am pleased to see you have worked this out in so much detail. I guess it's the rigors of medical training.

Well, rest assure, I love my tea! Although my love is simply relegated to drinking the stuff! Oh, I have pondered a time or two on finding some other way to become intimate with my pu than just drinking it, however, I figured I would just like to keep my beengs the way they are! :P

I have not tried the Yuannian offerings. Although I am quite tempted to do so. As for the information, I cruise through Chinese websites and pick up bits and pieces here and there.

i think people overreact with germs/bacteria. i mean our body is filled with bacteria and there is no real way to avoid it. germ freaks are just kidding themselves

I believe most illness is caused by stress, but I am still a hand washer.

Date starts out with, "Will you supply the Oolong" could rapidly progress to "Hey, there's McDonald's, how about a sweet tea from drive thru?" Get some finger prints, 2 previous income tax returns, recent pay stub, DL, passport, a quick background check on the internet is only $75 bucks . . .

LOL!

So Sarah, what kind of oolong? A heavy or light roast? Aged? High mountain? :)

I could enjoy a dan cong shower, I think, if it were done gongfu.

Well, you've passed the first test!

Gong fu shower sounds too intense for me. I think a light first infusion would be just right.
