From Kuura

After a long search, we’ve found something the soothe the tickle in your throat after our much loved white tea, Honey Jar, left the building.

This aged shoumei white tea was picked and pressed in Fujian in 2014, and stored in Guangzhou dry storage since then. Fujian white teas such as this are known for their fragrance and sweetness, and the solid storage and age on this tea lends itself well to deepening those aspects. Thick, smooth, soft, sweet and soothing. This white tea does well gongfu, in a mug, in a big western style teapot, or boiled/simmered on the stove or in a kettle.

The cakes are 360g, the traditional size for tea cakes in China based on Imperial measurements, so a fair bit larger than most of our in-house productions at 200g.

Yoinked this sample out for an easy grandpa while gaming tonight. The syrupy sweetness is underpinned by a thick handful of autumn leaf, grabbed from the bottom of a month-old pile. It’s mature and roasty and duffy in a way that not every shou mei achieves. An enjoyable and easygoing cuppa, for sure.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Honey, Sweet


Ohhh, what game? I’m about to turn our tiny middle bedroom into a game room.


Oy, I love a board game! Last night I was just on the PC with some WoW..


My son and son-in-law both love board games! We used to play a lot – Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Munchkin, etc. Ashman and I occasionally play Rack-O and Scrabble together, and when we can get one more player, Potion Explosion. What are some of you guys favorite board games?

I liked Ticket to Ride, but played so many…


I wish I had a regular group to play with! The last game I really enjoyed was Forbidden Island — the idea of working as a team and competing against the environment was refreshing.

Hm. Another reason to move to the CA? :) (joking)


Oooooo, we have a couple of Ticket to Ride games as well as Forbidden Island! Those are good. We played Cartographer at my daughter’s house. That was pretty fun, too.


Tea and board games… not the worst reasons I’ve heard for moving, Martin!


Codenames is fun, and my brother brought a new game Hues and Cues about guessing the right color from 400 on the board.

I mean, there’s really not a lot to elaborate on with this tea; do you like thick, syrupy white teas? The taste of honey? Then this is a tea for you because it’s perfectly named for its essentially singular tasting note. Just very, very rich golden honey!

(Reminds me of Kuura’s other infamously honey tasting tea, Honey Jar. I think I’ll always regret not buying more of that one when I had the chance.)
