For some reason Quinns kept talking about a board game in the recent tea review. I thought we could flesh out the discussion here. What’s being drunk?
Right now I’m sat beside a pot of my favourite tea. Pu-erh (aged 10 yrs), one of the top ten teas of China. It’s a black tea. It has an earthy taste that is not at all acrid or bitter, its easy to brew, and the leaves can be used to brew up to six pots. I drink an awful lot of it.
On our 2015 anniversary, my wife bought me a “tea tour of China”. (Link) From then I recorded each tea, so that I would remember my favourites. I harvest almost all of my tea from the grand old man who grows behind my shed. Another favourite of mine is 大红袍 (Da Hong Pao / Big Red Robe) oolong.
