Continuing along with teas I own.. This is a tea acquired by James in his recent trip to Taiwan, a massive 500 gram brick from the late 1990s.

We’d love to see your stash, the hidden panels, the… did I hear that right… ‘dank’ ones stuffed behind fake outlets, etc.
Actually, in all seriousness, your storage system would be very interesting.
Hello James, this sounds like a great tea for the little price you paid buying it in Taiwan. Have you had a chance to compare with the brick tea at Camellia Sinensis? Do you think these might be the same?
Not completely related to the video but this site and you guys are my most trusted tea information source, so here goes a question. I’m thinking about buying a yixing or jian shui teapot and I’m wondering is there any point to buying one for mostly taste and tea quality improvement reasons? Also what’s the difference between the two types? I’ve been recently ordering from yunnan sourcing a lot and I noticed that they seem to have a decent offering of both… should I consider buying from them? (Either jian shui or yixing) It would be the easiest and most convienient since I’m ordering a lot from them anyways. If not what would you recommend? Any input on this would be greatly appreciated and thanks for doing this site and these videos they have been a great help to me.
Keep up the good work!
