Tea lovers beware: reading this may cause lightheadedness. This second-generation young tea master has astonished today with three absolutely stunning teas from Yunnan. On the menu: A) Ai Lao mountain, 800 year old single tree harvest gushu sheng puerh from 2018. B) Jingmai mountain, 300-400 year old trees gushu sheng puerh from 2006. C) Last but not least, a red tea from Feng Qing, a single tree harvest that is 2200(!!!) years old. The second photo is of this majestic tree. The Cha Qi in this tea is ultra powerful and profound beyond words. #chadao #gongfucha #tea #tealife #teaaddict #tealover #teamaster #livingtea #gaiwan #teacup #teatime #teashop #puerh #puer #shengcha #sheng #hongcha #gushu #chaqi #tree #mountains #yunnan #taipei #taiwan

Although it may look familiar, this is not a repost - our magnolia picture is becoming a yearly tradition at this point. These flowers have become one of our favourites, blooming as early as January and reminding us that spring isn't far away, and you know what that means...

As much as he seemed eager to help with our spring cleaning, Chairman mostly just observes. At least now he knows to rinse glassware with boiling spring water instead of the ultra-hard Kunming tap water, never mind trying to make #tea with it...

tea4fitlife. Tie Luo Han known as Iron Monk picked in 2017 from Vicky @cytea9 @woof

Tie Luo Han known as Iron Monk picked in 2017 from Vicky @cytea9 @woof_plus_meow . It was first Tie Luo Han for which I made notes and I was quite surprised in how high scores I gave this tea. I may not be an expert in this category but I still truly believe that it's a very good rock oolong. . My tasting notes 🤓 . Eyes Dry Leaf - Dark graphite with plum notes. Very delicately rolled, a bit broken. . Nose Dry Leaf - Sweet note of burned raisins with bourbon and very delicate burned wood. . Eyes Liquor - Medium dark maple syrup with cherry hue. . Nose Wet Leaf - Dark cocoa and burnt brownie. Sweet note of lyophilized berries. . Mouth Texture - Medium thickness, a bit jelly like, leaving tingling sensation on the tongue. . Mouth Taste - Burned wood, dry cranberries. . Nose Empty Gong Dao Bei - Butter croissant and cherry jam. . Mouth Finish - Stimulates saliva production. Coating whole tongue with sticky feel from minerality and keeps the tingling sensation. . Eyes Wet Leaf - Milk to dark chocolate brown plus some leaves are dark green. Leaves look fresh with slight oily shine. . Body Sensation - Rousing effect with a bit of stone feel after many infusions :) . . #teaphotography #looseleaf #truetea #tealover #teatime #tea #chay #te #herbata #teahead #stayloose #چای #茶 #شاي #çay #čaj #Tea4Fit #GongFuCha #rockoolong #wuyioolong #TieLuoHan #IronMonk #pouringtea #kyusu #minikyusu #gongdaobei #teapet #teaware #wintertea #winterlights

It’s gray and dreary out, but at The World’s Smallest Tea Shoppe @valisegallery we are drinking Golden Snail. It’s a remarkable tea that has all of the muchness that we love about gold tipped black teas from the Yunnan province of China. It’s round, exceedingly smooth, it tastes of dark caramel and you first feel the warmth in the middle of your chest then it spreads through out your whole body, fortifying you against the cold drizzle outside. Oh and it’s great paired with this strawberry shortcake by Dot Cherch. Come by and have a cup and I promise that we will talk about more interesting things than the weather.

A captive audience. (I’m sure they don’t mind.) . Cleaning through my small, readily-accessible tea cabinet above my kitchen tea prep area when I found a little travel jar of what smelled like good funky ripe puerh. However, I think this was a sample of 15- to 20-year aged loose raw puerh gifted to me by Jason of @ccfinetea. The dry leaves had a goldenish hue uncharacteristic of ripe puerh—it almost reminded me of the golden colors in the leaves of tian hong. But this is definitely a puerh, and it has a chaqi that ripe puerh doesn’t often carry. What a treat.

“Listen,” Gaspar said, holding the stick up to clarify exactly what he meant. We listened as if they were going to discontinue sound any second and we needed to stock up. I think I even stopped breathing for a while. When you sit, sit.” Master Lapin the #teapet Always reminds me of a venerable monk teaching others to sit. Hence the quote from one of my favorite books when Gaspar is teaching Josh(Jesus) how to sit and about Buddhism. If you never read Lamb, the Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal...well I highly recommend it. This sesh was early morning before soccer with the last of my @chawangshop ‘17 Guangbie Laozhai Long Zhu Raw Puerh Ball! Also highly recommended!

A tempest in a tea pot... A fresh batch of 2009 “Cloud Burst” small batch Shu Pu Er from Li Shulin of Nannuo mountain. This 357g bing turns 10 years old this year! To celebrate, the first person to tag 10 pu er loving friends and get 10 likes on their comment can score one of these bad boys for $40 - they’re usually $75. You have until the end of this week, after that we’ll probably be sold out! #teaaddict #teahead #chinesetea #gongfucha #gongfuchaatx #puertea #puerh #puerhtea #fermentedtea #teapot #yixingteapot #bingcha #bings #teacake #darkness

Profile: In

Nan Po Zhai 2017 Ancient Arbor raw Sheng @yunnan_sourcing Profile: In some ways it unfolds in a fine mix between a very fresh young Sencha (Shincha) and a fresh Taiping Houkui. Further you are going to discover a vegetal field of artichokes and Brussel sprouts plus a fine citrus peppery touch. The aftertaste is also a lovely part of its composition and in some way mouthwatering which is normally the case in the beginning as in the echo but this is a very unique & also an enjoyable aspect of this raw fellow. Within this aftertaste you finally can also taste the fruity aspects of pear skin, grape skin all with a bit of fruit pulp to it but more within its skin! There is also a stronger mineral stony aspect to it which feels like if you take fresh spring water and add some river stones to it. It is always fascinating how much one varietal of plant can change depending on what type of land it is growing - Soil, mineral content, water, sun per day, if it is a lower or a high mountain region. It is just magical what this earth offers and a gift for us to enjoy its rich and unique compositions ~🍵💚🍵 Cheers everybody & may amazing tea be with you! #tea #teapot #photography #zen #teaart #teaculture #tealeaf #puerhtea #tealeaves #instaphoto #instafoto #tealover #tealove #teaaddict #teastagram #instatea #tealife #cupoftea #ilovetea #teadrinker #teaofinstagram #gongfucha #teaoftheday #teamoment #teapots #puerhcha #rawpuerh #shengpuer #teareview #puerhaddict

Hey Tea Friends, In 2009, I switched from drinking several cups of coffee a day to drinking copious amounts of tea bags. I know, it is not true tea, but it was the gateway I needed to get me to where I am now. In 2012, I took a journey around the world and was able to experience tea culture everywhere from Ireland to East Africa, to Nepal and India, and throughout SE Asia! During this trip I got to drink a lot of tea and this was my first experiences with loose leaf tea. However, with all these experiences with tea it wasn’t until the spring of 2018 that I really began to dive head first into tea and tea culture. Since then I have made some amazing new friends and have drunk hundreds of liters of “True Tea,” as well as sharing my love and passion for tea with anyone who will listen. A few days ago, while reflecting on my tea journey over the past year I was trying to narrow down the top 5 teas I was able to try last year and thought, “wouldn’t it be cool to know what everyone’s top 5 teas were for 2018?” And, so this idea was born. If I can get everyone to fill this little form out and share it with your friends, then maybe we can compile a list of the best teas and share it with the world so they can try them too! So, strap on your thinking caps and think back on your tea journey last year, and share your #Top5Tea18 list with the world! Happy Steeping! Link to image and instructions are in my bio! #teasurvey #whatteaisyourfavorite

#gyokuro It has been a long time since I had my last #japanesegreentea so I bought one and decided to follow Don's (@mei_leaf ) instructions about this special tea. I warmed up the teaware about 40°C and infused 6g of #tea with room temperature water for about 14! minutes. The result is clearly the thickest and umamiest liquid I have ever had. I felt a little bit beaten up by this, as I expected it not to be so strong. Super rich in flavor. 2nd infusion with 50°C for about 2,5 min. - it was less umamiest, but more mineral *yummi* 3rd infusion with 50°C for about 3 min. - delicious vegetal green tea flavor 4th infusion with 70°C for 2,5 min. - light vegetal tea 5th infusion with 80°C for 2.5 min. - still a great and flavorful green tea After this infusion, you have to throw the leafs into a bowl, squeeze a bit lemon juice on it and add soy sauce. Even a guy like me, who doesn't like soy at all, has to say THIS ROCKS! It's so refreshing! Thank you Don, for your great advices :) For an instruction search on #youtube for meileaf and gyokuro ;) #greentea #gongfucha #gongfu #japanesetea #healthfood #nofilter
