Clay, and 2016 CYH Mahei
Our February this year is a confusing mix of warmer
spring-type weather, think April, alternating back to winter. Best to ignore
the weather now and fold myself into my puerh hobby. If you have a lot of puerh
tea, free time spent in the company of your teas...

Re-tastes, and Re-tasting
I just received a complaint today. Yes, I know a week has
passed since my last post. Okay, more than a week. How is a person supposed to
keep track of time while drinking puerh tea? Truthfully I have been drinking a

2014 Hekai Ripe and 2013 Xigui Raw
This 2014 Hekai Ripe is one of those “what the h***?” teas I found in
my stash recently, and then tracked down where I bought it from. I bought this
cake from during a period of insanity last year when I needed
more ripe teas to store for my s...

to be very sour, to the point where I didn’t want to continue drinking it. I’m
not a stranger to sour tea. But of course I feel bad when I think a tea is sour
because I know the reasons why. The q...

Bang Dong and Balls: Sheng Olympics 2017
This year’s Sheng Olympics by LiquidProust Teas in
conjunction with various tea vendors is an exciting opportunity to sample a
variety of sheng puerh teas for not a lot of money. I missed out on Sheng
Olympics last year to my abiding regret, mainly after a ...

Tea and Dehydration
Right now I’m exhausted. Three days ago my healthy eight
month old kitten suddenly fell ill with a fever, very ill. A quick trip to the
vet lead for fluids and an antibiotic shot, and I stayed up all night feeding basic hydration solution every hour or two ...

Weighing the Tea
Weighing tea toward ideal parameters is a no-brainer for
most puerh tea drinkers. I hadn’t really thought about it before, but now I
wonder how much I actually learn from pre-measuring tea. Maybe I learn more
when I don’t. With the risk of over-thinking, I ...

2015 Pin
2015 Pin by white2tea I have many teas in my collection yet to sample, and 2015
Pin from white2tea is one of these. This tea is still available for purchase ,

the tea which recomm...
