  1. Really hated the only puerh tea I tried so far, but watching your videos every week, I got curious and I’m planning an order of a bunch of different samples that Paul recommended. Hopefully, this new experience will be better – at the very least, it can’t be worse…

    Anyway, very nice episode, as always. Kind of curious that the box of this tea is in French… Do you know why?

  2. As usual, nice ep.

    I’ve been wondering, how does everyone handles their cakes. By that I mean sanitary so, do you wash your hand before handling them, do you wear gloves, and so forth.

    Personally I wash my hand throughfully and then wait them to dry out and I then
    break enough tea for my drinking and that it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Curious to see how people handle that ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Pretty much the same Xavier, I think that as long as you don’t get any food or foul smells onto the cake it should be fine.
      The tea is going to be washed before consumption as well.
      I suppose it can be similar with Yixing/clay teapots. It takes a lot to ruin cakes and pots with dirty hands.
      Westerners can get OTT with hygiene I think, but the spirit of tea is beyond mind, a sort of personal and experiential means of expression ๐Ÿ™‚
      As Denny has said before, there is no right way to make tea

  3.
