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

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

Love it! That’s fantastic!

Ya it’s pretty great. I’m still in recovery from the shock of my parents being able to get one of the pots from verdant’s trip.

That’s awesome that they were able to get you all that, especially the yixing teapot from David. Those teapots sold within seconds!

Ya, I guess one of the days my dad wasn’t working (he’s an airforce pilot so he works a couple weeks on then 1ish week off) he was periodically checking the website and he was the first to grab the pot. Lucky timing :)
