When I made my last post in January of this year, something was amiss. I was getting sick a great deal. This has been a trend for the large part of 2013, up until recently, since i'm being treated for all that ails me now. Regardless of all that, I discovered my stomach can no longer tolerate any amount of young sheng. It makes me violently ill, no matter what I do. On the other hand, aged tea has no effect on me. I have no idea why this is.
I've since come up with an idea. It's borrowed from the world of wine drinkers - Just taste the tea and spit it out. So far, no problems!

I think it's worthwhile to make a point here. By not actually ingesting the tea, I may not be able to experience the Qi of said tea. I see this as a valid point, but if we're assuming that Qi is a real thing, then I guess I will just have to miss out on that part of the experience.
Given that there is time in the future for me to write, I plan on resuming my writing in this blog.
Take Care :)
