Here is another short update of my personal tea news.
As a result of some poor tea-based planning on my part I will not be reviewing the TGY I got from Tea Spring earlier this month. I took the tin of it to work with the intention of brewing it "grandpa style" (a phrase I got from MarshalN). The results of this were more fortuitous than I imagined they would be.
Unfortunately I used up the majority of what was left of my sample, and at some point I managed to lose the rest of the tin. So sadly I won't have any formal session with this tea, but I don't think there was a lot to be said. I did enjoy the tea, but it wasn't something I had any particular high praises for.
The good news is I have a new order of teas coming in this week (praying that the USPS doesn't smash the box again). There are four sheng pu'erhs and a black tea. I have read a review for one of the pu'erhs and it looks to be like a promising tea. I will post pictures when I get the package.
Lastly I am working on a second page to this blog that will be a condensed introduction to artisan tea. This is to help any of my readers that still don't know very much, or those that need to refresh their memory on terms or words I might use.
That's all my comings and goings for now. Thanks for reading. Cheers.
