Puerh Christmas Haul (Verdant Teapot and EOT Puerh Pics)
So for Christmas this year all I wanted was tea stuff. Not trying to break the bank for my parents, I only asked for a few higher end tea items. I religiously watched David’s trip to china on verdant tea and saw the teapot’s were very reasonably priced for hand made yixing. Since I am getting into puerh and already have a teapot for shu I asked my parents to look for a grey, green, or yellow clay yixing teapot. When I saw that he only put 2 or 3 up I figured that my parents hand’t gotten one. I also asked for some young mansai puerh from EOT because of the great reviews they always seem to get. Well it turns out my parents were able to get everything I wanted!!! I got the duan ni 6 oz yixing teapot made by Xu Ping and 2 2011 Mansai sheng puerh cakes. Here are the pictures http://www.flickr.com/photos/87738073@N05/sets/72157632085990036/
I’m just about to try some of the puerh before my parents are putting it away until christmas :( I’m going to try to age one of the cakes and see how that goes, comparing it to the other which I will be drinking. If you have any questions about either I’d love to help
The second picture isn’t great but I wanted to show the cool white speckling the clay has
Haha, I’m doing about the same but getting a tea tray :)
Where’s the tea cake from?
http://www.essenceoftea.co.uk It looks like it was $160ish for both cakes I bought with shipping. They included a large sample of another tea and I’m drinking some of the tea right now, It is fantastic. Well worth the money
you lucky dog!! can i move in?
Thanks! And sure you can move in as long as you bring a tong or two of some dayi v93, I’m all out ;)
i got a 250 gram cake of it and about 4 more 100 gram cakes different years and sheng and shu of each!
I need to buy the 5*100 http://www.ebay.com/itm/V93-Menghai-Dayi-Pu-erh-Tuo-Cha-2009-Ripe-/220843648376?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=520047941727&hash=item336b4ea578

Thats a good deal there on ebay, i just got a single one from here once
320545967558 ebay item $1.50 more half the time in shipping to you. or item 190758127779 24.95 not sure of ship time but at 4.99 each still a good deal.
berylleb always sends samples too. that’s why i only buy one dayi beeng at a time. i guess i am cheap!
Thanks mrmopar :) I’ve ordered teas from that same ebay store before(shcfstore) I’m not sure how I missed that
Love it! That’s fantastic!
That’s awesome that they were able to get you all that, especially the yixing teapot from David. Those teapots sold within seconds!
