sipdown. WOW. that’s all i can say, is just wow. This was from the great canadian travelling tea box, though i’m fairly certain this was one that dexter put in. I have been drinking this all morning. Seriously. the smoke is just perfect..and it’s sweet and delicious and every time i forgot what i was drinking and absentmindedly took a sip, i was immediately floored and kept exclaiming Oh! This may actually be one of the first cakes i get around to purchasing from Garrett…even before noble mark or special dark. Because this? this was really good. (though with my luck it’s all sold out or something…keeps happening lol)

:D I love this one too!

Garret

So happy to hear that you are enjoying this one!!! I pressed alot of these and still have more than 200 left, though I might get greedy and hold onto a few tongs for myself :)

I did just score a huge amount of the mao cha from the same producer. It is autumn 2013 crop. Really good. A little less on the smoke, but perfect, nonetheless. Likely, we will do a 2014 pressing of the spring mao cha!!

Sil

OMGsrsly

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
