  1. James,

    Sounds like a nice tea. I am a fan in general of Dayi ripes, especially with some age on them (V93, 7572, 7562). I like that you are reviewing some “humble” daily drinkers along with the rare/break-the-bank teas. Sometimes you just want a nice beverage with no drama.

    • Thanks Karl. Appreciate it. It’s kind of an unexpected change of habit after a few years of hardly touching ripe. I think my wallet is thanking me too.


  2. I’m loving these inbetweenisode reviews, thank you! I really like the idea of beginning the day off with a somewhat casual pot of shou.

    I’m curious to know, when you brew shou in a bit larger pot such as that, how fully do you fill it when doing the rinse? I’m also interested to know if you rinse it once or twice.


    • Hi Jimmy,

      That’s a good question. Thinking about it, I probably fill it 2/3rds or so. Enough to get all the leaves wet.
