a good tea
TeaHong describes this tea accurately: sweet, smooth, etc… In order to achieve the tea’s profile, paying attention to the water’s temperature and steeping time is needed.Ben Tran

Hello “a new visitor”, the new harvest is normally around mid-April, but it has to go through our intake process and standards, which is not the same for each tea. This tea should be available some time in late May, if the harvest for this year is good.Siu PB
Song Cultivar 2018
A deep citrus flavor pervades the mouth that carries through for endless brews. Huigan is huge and long lasting. The tea has some power and quick infusions bring out its smoothness and good mouthfeel. This was a treat!Jeffrey Novick

Thanks for Yixing pot priming instruction http://teaguardian.com/how-to-make-tea/tea-accessories-yixing-teapot-1.html#.U_2X0kvVryc which many people neglect to follow, sometimes simply due to ignorance. This pot is for myself, not for my friend. And Bamboo Drum pot does look beautiful to myself, and I believe, also to those who know this feeling of attachment to the Yixing teapot like to old friend, partner and companion. And like with a friend – it take years do develop relationship. So the Yixing Pot is not a mere pet.
I have never experienced anything like this feeling toward piece of furniture or porcelain or etc….To Yixing only.
I have noticed that description is “Material: Wuhui Shao (Straw-covered low temperature refired)”…
– Does it means the pot been fired and then refired?
– High-fired or low-fired?
– How it affected the density?
– How porous is the pot?
– How thick?
Can you please point the direction where I can find more reading about this material and the process?
I did not mean to be annoying but buying online is difficult. The real look and touch are so important…
These questions is not about the fact that buying online $$ pot might not be the smartest thing… Leo’s reputation is known as well as his passion and dedication to his tea crusade mission…
These question is about what the mouthfeel will be like. Thick or smooth… Thinner or sharper…It might be that a high temperature fired pot will not absorb any liquids or wick subtle flavors and aromas, a lower firing pot will…Oleksandr Lyashenkohads218
Tieguanyin Classic 2017
We enjoyed this classic oolong with a spicy lunch today. The dry, bumpy nuggets are pungent and pleasant to look at. I used a black clay yixing gaiwan for this selection but didn’t detect much aroma after three shakes of the dry tea in the heated bowl. That all changed the very second the hot water hit it. This tea was generous in releasing its complex baked aroma. Very pleasant. The first steeping was a quick one. Lovely flavor on the front of the palate in into the nose. Earthy with a hint of black peppercorn yet mellow as the name implies. The second steeping I left sitting too long (or so I thought). It was strong but only in the most pleasant way. We did a few more steepings and the nuggets opened up into what look like rolling waves on a black ocean. The texture lets you know you are drinking a substantial tea. I don’t think this is the type of tea that can be steeped all day, though, as it gives off its flavor quickly. On the other hand, I will steep a few more infusions, let them sit longer, and see what surprises await. In my opinion this is a great tea to accompany meals.Karen Ager
