While searching for my 2 boxs of old tea pots ( those that I bought in the late 1980s) in the store, I found this stone tea tray but not the boxes tea pots, the cool moorning breeze give me the idea to place in this graden wall near the water fountain...
After an hours washing and cleaning, the idea of brewing and drinking tea here started...
I enjoy brewing tea and reading my newspaper here in the morning and having snacks... but can accomodate one more person only..
Only 4 pieces of this rare 1994 Fangcha only 100 g , asking price RM250 therefore 10 g at Rm25..
our group just lucky since there are about 50g left for tasting normally the owner does not allow tasting he brew n drink himself but today he is happy mood so we get to taste this wonderful raw puer, after tasting Lai buy all 4 pieces.
This Gong Ting 100 g each left over about 8 pieces but sample for tasting I will come another time hope the owner brewing it for me to taste..hahaha maybe so if I make him happy.
Our tea went to taste this rare 1970 brick ripe puer at a traditional tea merchant shop near my house..
Just pity that the puer tea over 36 years old didn't produce that kind of taste we expected, all becuase it is too expose in ht sunlight as the shop facing the afternoon hot sun left on the shelf of the display glass cupboard..
This raw brick puer tea the taste and aroma still a way to reach the level where veteran tea drinkers will consider buying it...look good nough but somehow lacking that type of taste will attract u to go for the 2nd cup..
The big snow mountain as it is name this raw puer cake 2011 will require at least a few more years for certain level fermemtation before able to give puer drinkers the urge to invest for future drinking..
This according to th tea merchant is a good raw puer as there 2 signatures coming from the puer village head where this puer tea leaves come from in addition to the 2 offcial chops to certofy its Q good.
I love this kind of imagination and creativity of the tea merchant using a stone grinder as tea tray..just wonderful idea to follow.
