This is so good…why do I keep falling in love with samples of $100+ cakes I can’t afford :(
That is our way :)
+1 for expensive tastes :P
One day you will afford it, though, right?? :D
If it happens like last time KiwiDelight, they will sell out before I save up. The Guafengzai I was in love with is out of stock weeps for GFZ
it is just learning experience. i cannot drink only pu i can afford.
Hmmm, Christmas bonus?
Maybe I shouldn’t try to rationalize.
This is a very fine tea!
Agreed, love the $$$ stuff as well!
I can find cheap shou that is delicious, but I oh do I love expensive young sheng!
Let’s buy this cake! =D
I DO think I want to put together a group order!
I’ve not yet had the pleasure of tasting Tea Urchin pu’erh. What about this sheng made you fall in love with it?
LooseTman they will make you a set of samples for $30 if you shoot them an email! That’s how I got addicted :) This particular one I really like for its complexity and pleasant bitterness. It also has a wonderful energy. I just feel good when I drink it! My favorite cake from them that is not sold out is the Miles Birthday blend, I’d really really like to get a couple of people to go in on a cake of THAT one with me! :D
$169/357g cake and only 8 left! http://teaurchin.com/miles-2012-spring.html
Yeah, I HAVE to get more of that Miles cake before it sells out…I need at least one other person to go in on it with me though :(
If you really liked their 2012 Guafengzhai, they’re supposedly pressing a Guafengzhai cake this year again.. Should be 200g. Maybe more affordable?
This was one of my favorites too, along with the Lao Man E
Thanks for the tip jschergen!
Doug F I have a sample of that, too, I should revisit it soon :)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos. I’m recently becoming a puerh addict.
