From CHA YI Teahouse

Grown without artificial pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers near the village of Shi Tou, this year’s tea once again presents an astonishing aromatic complexity. Full flavoured, and suffused with a heady perfume of candied exotic fruit, fudge, cocoa butter, and opulent flowers, as well as a thick buttery texture. Indulgent and comforting, this tea insists on being savoured and appreciated and will bring you back to the present moment. Truly and incredible experience.

I sipped down the last of my 25 g of this tea yesterday. I finally got up the nerve to use the clay houhin that Mrmopar sent me a while ago, and much to my surprise and relief, it didn’t break. Maybe I’m not a degenerate teapot murderer after all! This tea was extra floral and cookie-like because I used a larger amount in what I think might be a 100 or 110 ml pot. Sadly, the fruity notes weren’t as evident as they were in a porcelain vessel.

I’m sad to see this tea go and regret not picking up more in the company’s recent sale. (But then, if I restocked all the teas I enjoyed, my cupboard would be even fuller than it is now.)

Thanks again, Mrmopar, for the teapot!

Welcome and enjoy!

Thanks again! The pot is easy to handle, though it does get hot if you don’t use the detachable base (which I initially didn’t).
