This time around Phyll Sheng has posted two good pieces on pu-erh at Phyll's Tea Cups & Wine Glasses. Pu-erh is not a topic Tea Guy has really delved into, but Phyll seems to be quite knowledgeable about it. Here are his thoughts on 1985 Best Tea House Loose Raw Pu-Erh and here is what he had to say about 2005 Menghai Factory, Early Spring Harvest, Ban Zhang.
Mellow Monk's Green Tea Blog posted a recipe this week for an iced delight called The Mellow Monk Green Tea Summer Fruit Splash. More info here.
More on pu-erh at The Mandarin's Tea, with Toki's illustrated post about little-leaf pu-erh and a rather mature tea tree.
If you're a teapot fancier there's always something to see at Andy Titcomb's Teapots Teapots Teapots. This time around Andy features info on a sleek 1964 model by designer Jaques Garnier and a quite pricey pot in the shape of a cockerel. If you head out to Christie's you might be able to pick the latter one up for about £4,000 - £6,000 British pounds.
