I am brewing this in the Gaiwan today. I am also drinking it out of this vessel. I only put a little over a tsp in. A somewhat of a long steep. Delicious as ever. I love this tea. I had to give it a slight stir so the flavors would mix. Oh, the warm feeling….

pedant question: do you happen to know what generation from the source the plants are which Verdant has access to distribute?

Jim Marks

Just curious, mostly. I was reading about the origins of big red robe and from a marketing point of view, vintage (of the bushes) has become a big issue.

It struck me as the kind of tea that if I’m going to delve in, I’d want to start with an exemplar but that acquiring a true one might take some doing.
