    Was wondering when you would break off from yqh. Lol…. I enjoy this tea… Ordered two, and David sent me one of each, the stone compressed and machine pressed.

    • James says:

      Yep. This is a great one for daily consumption. Good quality and you really can’t complain about the price.

      Cheers,

      Emmett,

      How would you compare the the machine pressed to the stone pressed? I can only imagine the machine pressed will age more slowly and, as James noted, have slightly more bitterness.

        Hi Theo,

        I’m not Emmett. But having had a few iron cakes and comparing them to their stone pressed cousins I think your assumption is likely correct.

        Cheers,
        -James

    Great review James. For the price I don’t think anyone will be disappointed with this tea. Now if the 2003 would just come back in stock……..
