Today is prep day for the Pu-erh tasting. I had this same tea on Mid Autumn night brewed with a large yixing teapot of late Qing Dynasty. The performance of the tea was amazing, so I wanted to try it in the Chao Zhou Zhuni Qing period pot.
Getting to know a tea takes time, using various tea wares, water, timing and methods to learn every aspects of a tea, learn what does it take to bring out the best of a tea. As a tea merchant, finding a tea to sell is easy, finding a good tea which can stand the time is not easy. I don't list much pu-erh teas as most people know, however I do have quite a selection stored away for my nieces and nephew. This 2009 green pu-erh was originally obtained for my youngest niece whom was born in 2009. However I secured more of them and will bring them home in the next trip, so I feel I should share some of them. I personally think this is a good tea with good value for the quality. The qi is so strong, I am still feeling it now a few hours after I had it.
