  • The Circle is Overcomplete
    The Peacock of Bulang went well, last week, and thus emboldened, I dug through some of my old samples to find a bit more Dayi: the 8582-805. First of all, this is a sample kindly provided (many years ago, in fact) by Terje; the tea-leaves have been relaxing in the splendour of their polythene bag for a number of years. I have written previously about a cake that I own in some quantity, the ... read more

    What? a gold tea? Yes, that was my reaction too when I heard of this tea at first instance. At first i thought it was just about the price, which may well be closely aligned with the gold standard as a matter of fact, but no! It's the tea itself that is bright shiny gold. With it's narrow shaped, tightly rolled needles of leaves, it almost seems as if it were a hay stack shimmering in… ... read more

  • Blast from the Past: Experiencing the Interest Firsthand
    If they’re not careful, trade journalists like me can begin to operate in a bubble.  From their desks, they research and write about what’s happening on the business-to-business side of their industry, losing touch with the business-to-consumer side.  Good reporters will prevent this by getting out often and talking face-to-face with individuals from every phase of the supply-and-demand chain they cover.
