I used Evian today, which, among other things, produced a lot of cloudy water in the boiler. I think the total dissolved solids is too high.

The tea itself doesn’t taste remarkable. It is slightly similar to what I had yesterday, but a little flatter. The tea definitely has a thicker feel to it, but I don’t think it is better than what I had yesterday. With the added problems of cloudiness in the water (looks like lots of goo in the water boiler) it really isn’t a good option. Scratch that one…

On an unrelated note though, I found this thread on a Chinese puerh website. It loads incredibly slowly, but wow, lots of pictures of lots of cakes, and some people have provided some comments as to how they taste. Very informative, if you have the patience to wait.

    Dude, you should see the crap left over in my water boiler after I’ve been boiling tapwater. It gives a whole new meaning to “total dissolved solids.” I wonder how Wahaha brand water brings out the natural essence of PG Tips? Wang Lihong says Wahaha is really good water, so you know, it must be good for tea. He even signs every bottle personally!

    Never did buy any Puerh…we were just too damn intimidated, not to mention afraid of getting ripped off.
