My ship has come in! More specifically, my shipment of yi-xing teapots and assorted tea ware has arrived. Yi-xing is the name of a city in eastern China, where they make use of a particular clay valued among drinkers of Chinese tea. As with all aspects of the tea matter, price ranges can vary widely depending upon the name and age of the item. Souls such as myself are more concerned with functionality and stylistic flair that puts most of these items in the less than $25 range. Take a gander here.
On 10 Aug ’14, Sunday at 1:00, there will be the monthly Meet-up session. The event is free and is a good opportunity to taste tea and network with fellow tea enthusiasts.
