I’m wavering, one tea per day from small yixing pots is hard. Gaiwans are bigger, and offer more…. ugh

Had my Beijing nongxiang today, oversteeped the 3rd infusion, came out slightly sour. Otherwise, it’s a pretty mild nongxing tea, as nongxiang teas go. The Best Tea House has a super fired one that’s rather strong, but it’s fun to drink and gives you a real buzz.

On a rather unrelated note, it is pretty interesting to see all the random visitors I get. There are people I know, but there are also people who I’ve never met in any way, shape, or form. To those of you (such as the Belgian and the Japanese visitor who seems to frequent here), hello! And thanks for reading 🙂

  1. Hi there! I might be the Japanese visitor that you mean, but I’m not actually Japanese! I’m a Canadian living in Japan. I love tea, although I don’t know much about Chinese teas. I’m enjoying reading your blog and finding out about tea drinking, the different types of tea and tea pots. You write very well and I’m finding your blog fascinating.

    My own blog is here.

    Keep up the good work

    Helen

  2. Heh, thanks, so you’re not Japanese after all — I noticed the ISP of the Japanese person moves around, so you must travel around the country a lot?

    Anyway, thanks for reading 🙂
