I’ll be hanging out with my new friend Sheng for the rest of the afternoon. We’ll be whispering and telling secrets in the corner and pretty much ignoring everyone else…don’t mind us! ;)

Seriously though, now I want to try more sheng pu-erhs darnit! I already have too many teas on my “want” list :/

Yep… just how it started out for me all those years ago. So happy you are enjoying this tea! I think I already shared with you that I’m a little obsessed with this one currently.

I can also recommend a 2007 purple leaf cake that we have from Haiwan. Very nice, it sells very well here and many repeat buys. Also Gifting Raw, 2007. Only 4 or 5 of those left.

Will have 4 or 5 new sheng pressings made in the next month or so for us. All material is super cleanly grown and we had it tested for sprays/chemicals and it all came through with flying colours! Expensive to test, but gives us peace of mind for us and for our customers/friends (one and the same, really) – so very worth it.

These cakes are a dangerous thing for me. Tea that is OK even encouraged to hoard because it gets even better with time! Thank you so much for the recommendations, I’ll definitely be putting a few on my Christmas list, and I LOVE that you test for chemicals!

Do please post on your Facebook or here on Steepster if you start to get low on the Wild Monk cake. I will need at least one more I think! :)

We are doing pretty well with our stash of the Wild Monk. I had alot of them pressed and just secured a whole bunch more of the mao cha to sell as loose leaf. The new mao cha will be 2013, though, and not 2012 because I bought all of that from the producer last year. Next year, will likely do another pressing of their mao cha. We’ll see what the tea names itself this next time :)

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
