    Great video – absolutely love Denny’s descriptive terms! :-)

    Yes, I agree: there *is* a difference in what “sweet” means between various teas described as sweet; for example, the sweetness is very different between a white tea, a gyo and a sheng.

    Interesting new angles from your camera person, too.

      Hiya Peter,

      Thanks for comment and kind words as always. I’ll be sure to relay them to Denny (who is also our camera person)!

      Cheers!

    I tasted the Repave last night and the early taste Denny describes was storage for me, it was gone after the 5th steep. This tea was a good contrast for me against the Manzhuan because the latter is so stunning I don’t regret ordering a cake of that and spending the money. The Manzhuan is worth the cost for me, I am finding White2Tea’s pricing to be spot on for the quality, the higher prices for the better tea really is better tea.

    • James says:

      Indeed. TwoDog’s pricing is pretty spot-on, highly correlated with quality! One of the many qualities of White2Tea.

      Cheers!

    Another great video – I’ll have to put in an order to try these out.

    I’m curious where you got your teapot, and what kind of yixing it is. My recent foray into puerh has got me interested in raising a yixing or two.

    • James says:

      Thanks Connor,

      The Repave is a fine tea and great value!

      The yixing is from Origin Tea, a vendor that is currently selling off their final teapots. If you are interested and the price is right, Origin comes with my highest recommendations. The teapot itself is a Qing Shui Ni (95ml), early 90s, although I wouldn’t worry too much about diagnosing clay type.

      Good luck and cheers!

      p.s. Another tea that we haven’t reviewed to check out is the White Whale.

      • Connor says:

        Thanks! Any word on the benefits of vintage yixing?

        • James says:

          Hi Connor,

          Yixing is mainly just a cool vessel to brew tea in. It definitely does change the tea to some extent but it’s probably one of the least cost-effective ways to actually improve your tea. The seasoning of yixing is overstated (in my opinion) on the internet by vendors and some enthusiasts. The clay (especially vintage) definitely does season but it is not really worth stressing out about.

          A less sexy way to improve your tea is buy good-quality spring water or better tea!

          That zhuan is a good one. It is offerings like this that have helped to solidify TwoDog’s reputations as a bargain hunter.

          Hope this helps and cheers!

        By the way I’ve never seen Hobbes so stoked. That zhuancha must be the shit
