Nothing terribly exciting today, other than the fact that I drank some more of the Beijing qingxiang tieguanyin. After having had the Fook Ming Tong stuff for so long the past week during the water tests, I have to say the Beijing stuff is far superior in fragrance and body. The tea is simply better, with better, lighter notes and overall more cha chi. And, it’s probably cheaper (although the Fook Ming Tong is technically free, as it is a gift).
Just goes to show how you gotta go to China to get cheap, decent stuff — so long as you know what you’re buying. Can’t wait to go teashopping on Maliandao!!
