It’s sad when….

… you break a piece of teaware you use every single day

… you turn on the kettle, only to find the heating element is wonky and you don’t have hot water

… you are traveling and there’s no hot water anywhere within 100km

… your favourite tea shop you visited last time is now a McDonald’s

… you discover that you didn’t seal your bag of tea, and now it’s stale

…or you left it out in the sun and now it’s baked

… you realize that your favourite tea is down to fannings left in the bag

… and it’s sold out

… and the tea you bought instead turns out to be a real dud

… which is beaten by the tea you drank yesterday, on its 25th infusion

… when tea producers promise you so much, and give you so little

… when you can’t decide what to drink for the day, and end up drinking something really bad

Which unfortunately is my case today.

  1. hi i visit your site regularly,
    when you have updates,

    you should really consider using “disqus” plugin for replies.
    cheer up mate at least you have us to brag about.

      • That’s not terrible enough,
        My father kept a stack of Puerh for 20 years (bought from China),

        during his funeral, I was excited as I was the only tea drinker in the Family,
        so I happily went to his stash and opened it!

        Only to find out it’s actually “Readily Aged Puerh” not your regular “Green Puerh”,
        and it wreck of artificial taste and smell……….

        you have to be very lucky to be able to enjoy Puerh 20 years ago,
        as people weren’t so into puerh back then, they were more into oolong and tie guanyin,

        oh well, at least my generation started good,
        I started on 2010….so hopefully it’ll be good in 2 more years…

        Say La Vi!
