Tuo Cha of 1985 bathing in the evening sun
Last Saturday, before the Typhoon, we had wonderful blue sky. The coming typhoon had blown all the clouds away, like usual. So I made a few shots with my yixing teapot, my old, wild, raw YiWu Tuo Cha of 1985 and a 60 year old tea cup.
The hole you see in my tuo cha is proof that I am drinking it! I do have to hurry up taking pictures, because it's so good I may not let it age much longer. I shall post more precise tasting notes soon, but today I will post more of the beautiful pictures I took.
The typhoon Taitang has weakened into a depression. This means normal rain now the whole day over Taipei. We've had a rough night from Sunday to Monday. A few trees fell in our neighborhood, but the damage seems much less compared to previous typhoons of this strength. Thanks to you who have e-mailed me or thought about Taiwan when you heard about the news.
