It happened. I broke by cha hai. The one that I've been using for years, beautiful with its tea stained glass.
Oh well, time to order another one and get some tea while I'm at it! For teaware, I looked around at other vendors but ultimately reverted back to Yunnan Sourcing. Keep in mind that's yunnansourcing.us not yunnansourcing.com. That's a mistake that will cost you a hefty shipping fee and a long wait.
After purchasing a new cha hai, I looked around to see what I could add to my order to justify the shipping price. I tossed in some featured 2014/2015 sheng puerh touchas, but I was really after another purple puerh cake to replace a 2012 purple Yi Wu cake that I really enjoyed. While searching, I stumbled across the Ying Shan Hong, a purple black tea with snow chrysanthemum for only $9 per 100g cake! Why not give it a chance? Per YS:
