I’m currently experiencing this error when I click the “start new topic”button on the forum page.
I also noted that the link to the formums in the upper menu does not work. (it links to tea-forums instead to forums)

They don’t use humans. They use imps. Did not you see them mix/blend the teas/flowers/other stuff and fill the tins? 😉
It’s a bit cold without the human hand giving the tea. But I think that suits the brand.

There is a difference between storing it to drink and storing it for aging. If you store it to drink keep it dry as you do with other teas otherwise humidity matters for the process.
I don’t know the exact numbers but there is discussion about what the best humidity is. Some think that dry storage (humidity ~60% if I remember the numbers correctly) or wet storage (humidity >80% or so).

@liberteas, @xavier, @lazyliteratus I’m happy to report that I solved the problem! As usual, the fix was a simple one – sometimes it takes time to go through all the steps.The downside is the damage done by the loss. All the pictures are gone, and there is no way to recover them. This blogs are intact and working properly, but you will need to…[Read more]– Peter (@peter) February 3, 2015
I hope it helps. Still a lot of work.

Although I did not recognize the name I heard of it before. But in a historical sense. It was played a lot before Rikyu and others developed the well known ceremony. This development was actually (among on other things) a reaction on this kind of games where very valuable prices could be won.
I also encountered it on a few other places in Japanese tea history, but I did not realize it was still being played.
It has been a while, but I think I encountered the most extensive story in:
The Japanese way of tea by Sen XV Soshitsu
Which I found a found a very worthwhile read.

I have a book about the Boulder-Dushanbe teahouse.
It looks very interesting.
Unfortunately the really good places are not nearby.
I liked the tea house behind the Etnography museum in Hamburg (see blogpost)
But this list is far from complete.

It only matters to professional tasters and those that like to simulate them. And then the standardization and practicality are the important factors.

Yep, that is a set of 2. But as a defence I have to add that I bought a lot of tea stuff in that period (almost 4 years ago).
I still want to use them, but I also want to a lot my other tea stuff.
But now that it has been mentioned again, it is back in my concious mind.

I think it depends on what you want to do with it. If it is just for fun just take a nice set. I’ve got my still unused set from ‘Palais des Thes’ in Paris.

It is ok that health and teabags get more people into tea. I just hope for them that is does not stop there and they grow into better quality tea and enjoyment.
I think that with the British and Dutch tea drinking comes more from culture than health issues. However I think the health reason does have its influence on the tea choices people make (for example drinking more green tea and some puerh). I.e. the way the tea landscape looks like.
Luckily there is also a rise in demand for more quality teas for more enjoyment. (and showing of unfortunately)

Now, the question is: Does the glue taste like tea? And if so what kind?
October 18, 2014 at 13:59 #10915
Yep, working again. Thanks!!
October 18, 2014 at 11:15 #10909
I have the same problem. I can log into the forum, but not cultea.
October 16, 2014 at 17:09 #10906
Have to remember this one for my trip to Berlin next year and check it out. 🙂
I don’t think it would work for every tea shop but being an exception might be very interesting for those costumers who dare to experiment.
