Hello,

I'm thinking about what to discuss here to get my 5 posts, so what about tea? Are there some tea lovers here, at bitcointalk?

I love Pu-Erh tea, especially raw blends (don't mind young, since I like the bitter taste) and some sweetish ripe ones.

What kind of tea do you like? Do you have some tips for a great tea to try?

(I've just came up with this topic as I smashed my small gaiwan lid while washing it, what a shame Sad)

I wake up every morning and have some irish breakfast tea! Cheesy

I'm still exploring other types of tea though, I'll try that Pu-Erh tea, sounds fancy Smiley

It sounds fancy, but is just a great tea. You buy it in cakes, chip off some and infuse it several times (usually from 5 seconds to several minutes, it depends on how strong you like your tea), every time it has a bit different taste. Try it!

By the way, where do you get your teas? I live in czech republic and the vendors are not good (either too expensive, or low quality). I buy pu-erh from yunnansourcing.com, but they only have a pu-erh and some green tea. They have great stuff.

They seem to ship to CZ at a reasonable price, I will look what they are offering, thank you!

There are, but usually not what I'd expect. You can buy common teas almost everywhere, but it's usually too expensive and not exactly outstanding. Of course, there are some exceptions I know of, but especially good Pu-Erh tea is hard to get here.

Also, I've had some pu-erh tea before, bought in cz, and was not amazed. Until I ordered some good stuff from china. I was amazed then and fell in love. One would say it's the same stuff, but it's not. My friend jokes that they probably sell here what's left on the floor of tea factory after the good tea is made :-)

I'm currently looking for a good source for taiwan/japan teas, preferably in taiwan/japan (I do trust them more than local resellers and don't mind slow delivery, as long as I get a good tea). Unforunately, I've had little luck.

Well, I haven't used ebay for tea yet, but I probably will this spring, when the tea gets harvested. I hear there are a few shops that offer good tea for fair price.

I'm buying from www.yunnansourcing.com . They have fair prices, good tea, great pottery (although not very good selection of it currently). I also have some experience with refunding broken goods (some of teaware broke the last time we ordered, and they refunded them in full just againts a photograph of it, without problems).

Rishi has consistently high quality loose tea. Though I try to buy from source. I prefer SE Chinese and Taiwanese high altitude, heavily oxidized oolongs. Dong Fang Mei Ren to be precise. Pu-erh is not my cup of tea.

I love tea! I tend to have it stewed and cold but I am quite an unusual person. What are peoples' opinions on white tea? I'm a fan.

Have I been polite and helpful? Please show your appreciation: 1PxWTUmhiK4SnqLepJjYNUVfZj3YaYvBrk

FYI, you probably mean 'masala chai'. Some variation of 'chai' just means 'tea' is nearly every language.

Never liked Coffee myself that much, but on occasions I drink some, black without sugar.
Teas are good at night before sleeping Smiley

I am a huge lover of earl greay tea, I drink about 5 cups a day of those Smiley
Also that Japanese tea, in Dutch we call it Jasmijnthee but I don't know the translation in Dutch ... but it's also very jummy and healthy.

and then ofcourse now and then a bit of green tea, which is quite nice too but not my favorite.
