This is the 2nd or 3rd? Liu Bao Cha expo in K.L., compare to Puer tea it is still not that popular, maybe due to high cost involve as an investor need to buy the whole basket average about 30 over kgs to keep and the shortage of storage space.
I would like to call her Queen of Liu Bao Cha becos she started the Liu Bao Cha expo and introduce this very common tea once brew and drink by the tin miners and the construction workers in Malaysia, the coomon type of liu bao cha selll about 1kg avergae price RM11 in sundry shops..She is also started the Puer tea expo in K.L. maybe 2004..
I am never a keen tea pots collectors even thought I love Puer tea and occasionaly still brew other tea to drink just for a chnage of taste.However I do have only a few teapots that by now some are 20-30 yrs old, but they are made by unknown tea pot master. However JJ Tan only keen at tea pot produce by some well known tea pot master..
I may not be crazy on tea pots but sure by looking, holding is more than good enough for me identify what is a good top grade master piece by a master.
By using and brewing puer tea is all u need to confirm it is a master tea pot by a great master.
