Got my order from Persimmon Tree… Sales are my downfall & you got me to try a few. I ordered a few samples and green caramel.. Hoping it’s a green I’ll enjoy! Excited to try everything! Thanks for the couple of extra samples!

got a yunnan sourcing cake yesterday – “Yi Dian Hong 2012” shu. i am not a fan of shu but i am warming up to it. would sheng be any better? i think shu is way too strong for my taste.

It truly depends on taste preference. Sheng is closer to green tea, while Shu is closer to red. If you find that shu is too strong, I would suggest trying a shorter steep time and seeing if you like it better that way! :)

It came with some metal tweezer/tong things. What are those for?

Super pretty! I have no idea about the tongs lol

yyz said

I think the tongs are for holding slash moving around the pieces when you steralize/ rinse them with tea or water.

Yay! It has been fun expeirmenting with it. Enjoy. So what will be the first tea grace the gwaiwan?
