Free tea

It’s been quiet around here. Like I’ve said before – I don’t have much that’s interesting to say these days, other than random snippets from my research. Drinking has been… pedestrian. Lots of teas that are just sort of daily drinkers, and nothing too special. Granted, I say this while sipping my 30+ years old baozhong as a daily drinker… but what’s there to say? It’s a bit sweet, a bit tart, tastes like old baozhong, and getting harder to find than ever.

However, recently I went back to my hometown and received a large amount of tea there as a gift. It was a nice gift, but it’s not tea that I drink – it’s green tea from Yushan, the local mountain in the city. It’s a green tea, although they call it Yushan white tea, supposedly because the teas are on the whitish side. I had some while I was there – it’s nice, sweet, and typical greens from the region.

But, as I said, I got too much of it. I only need a can, maybe, for my own consumption needs. So here they are, I have 8 of these to give away. If you want one, email me at mail at I’ll pay for shipping.

EDIT: Aaaaand they’re all gone. Thanks for the emails folks.

  1. You’ve always had something interesting to say.. I’ve been reading you for what is probably more than a decade now.. My only wish is one day we can share tea together and not write about it. The less said, the better.

  2. Thank you for the tea, I liked it a lot!
    I usually don’t drink green teas, but it was nice both to have something different and break the daily routine and also because it is less “greeny” than the green tea that I drank before.
    (I wrote about the tea in my blog, but it is in Portuguese.)
