    *I think that 1993 Menghai 7542 of which I bought only 5 gram was the most expensive per gram tea: £4.10. (making it £0,82/gram or $1,31/gram or €1,01/gram) The package is still closed. Ordered it as an extra with another order from The Essence of Tea. They have more expensive ones…

    A lot Pu Ehr is expensive because it is hyped as an investment. Cakes can go for hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars per gram. This has nothing to do with the quality of the tea. These teas are not bought for drinking, but for storing and reselling.

    * I second that way of thinking. For whatever my thinking is worth.

    *@filoli-farms Welcome and good luck. Suggestion: start a blog here and blog about your adventures. I think there are several people here who would enjoy that.

    *A mix. Some lengthy posts to enjoy over a cup or two and some shorter for in between or announcement. Different circumstances, different lengths.

    *Just tested: I commented on my own blog. I was a spammer. Unspammed me. Approved me (wrong I know). Made a second comment: this came straight through and was not considered spam.

    *@peter Why not create/choose one or more test blog posts where we can experiment with this.

    *Thought so. Just wanted to point out that clicking the “not spam” link is not always enough. Even if you have the settings set so everyone can post without approval.

    One by one they are returned to the visible world.

    Might be useful to give out a more visible warning though. Or a private message/email to all bloggers to make sure they all know what to do. In @lazyliteratus case I had to remove it from spam and then approve it. Time will tell whether this will improve over time.

    In short: it has to be worth the price, whatever that means for you. Would $2,- be ok? or $5?. If it was a good event?

    Seems to be interesting. If it was in an intelligible language. (or I improved my French instead of letting the little I had go to waste). I enjoyed Tea. It was one of the first tea-books I read.

    More than cute. Looks more like someones garden than a public place. Although it might be made that way. There seems to be a second teapot at the left.

    Thank you very much.

    And yes I tried 3 times. And I forgot to count the @… link that is automatically linked.

    One more detail that might help with finding the problem: I do have a link (a href) in my original post. (to Lahikmajoe’s latest blogpost). Did I do that wrongly?

    No problem with this post. So it might have been a glitch or @peter was up to something.

    Hmmm, I’ve tried it in Hamburg… And why am I not surprised that something is wrong with the stuff?

    We have a coffeebreak ~1030. I’m usually not the only one with tea or hot chocolate.
    Further of course the bonding during the wait for the electric kettle to boil, often for more people at the same time, while others get something that looks/smells/taste like coffee from the machne.
    And of course drinking tea during meetings.
    But then I live in a country where tea is normal.

    Wat do you mean by best? Best in what?

    Commercial?
    Availability?
    Number of varieties?
    Amount of tea produced or sold? (Darjeeling is very good at that)
    Best known? In the West, East?
    Taste?
    Smell?
    Qi?
    Money?
    Bringing people together?
    Best ceremony?
    Best for breakfast, lunch, diner, sleep, …?
    Best with Salmon, Beef, popcorn…?
    Best for me, you, someone totally different?
    Best for the environment?
    Best for the producing people?
    Best for the drinker?
    … etc etc etc

    At the moment I would say China, because they score high on almost all these points. But if we focus on a single point other countries might be better.

    They take over the smell and taste of each other, leading to new versions of the teas. If you want the original versions: they are gone. But that does not mean the result is bad…
