Why do you want the Zst tho?
🤷 now that you mention it
really love how it looks though
They do look nice
I finally got unchinked on the gaiwan
thank you based jack ma
What does he even need that many shoelaces for
Any shoop scam experts here?
Is the paper a shoop
it looks sketchy
why are you wondering? is this /csg/ related?
yes it is, look at that shadow, it's not over the paper
it looks really out of place
Zoom in, enhance
I need to get an ssd to put in my media center, is kingdian still the best bang for the buck?
i think drevo pro is the hot new meme
hmm, kingdian is still cheaper
id wait for more reviews
drevo is just being shilled slowly at this point
seems like I'll just stick with a low capacity kingdian
I'm sad and I want to buy cool chink shit
what teas do you reccommend?
I thought chink tea was safe
Buy seeds :^)
Nah i have no need for seeds
chinese tea is safe if you stick to the good vendors
like yunnan sourcing
what are the vendors you buy from?
I buy from yunnan sourcing, which is probably the most popular one
but people also like teavivre and white2tea
golden needle on the left is good shit
nice, do you buy loose leaf or bag?
with puer like the cakes I posted just now, you have to break it apart
but in the end, its loose leaf
buy meme glasses too https://www.aliexpress.com/item/BUY-MEME-PLS/32654058663.html
what are good non-meme chink sunglasses
i have two pairs and their great
UV coating is legit, right?
sometimes you can get chinked on the size of lens on chinese sunglasses so be careful for that
yea UV is legit
not bad <:thonk:288060975775612929>
I can't find the golden needle tea
most sunglasses, even chink ones, got uv coating
I own two pairs of these
pretty much my daily drinker right now
before my other puer cakes get here
do you store it in stainless steal container or what it comes in?
I just store it in the wrapper
air is good for puer
just store it away from light
never been too much of a tea guy myself, how is it? I've mostly just stuck with plain old earl grey
What should I buy with the tea? Should I buy myself one of those tea pots?
get one of these glass teapots or ceramic gaiwans they sell, I'd say
how long does 1 cake last?
I use 7g each time for 130ml, so 100 / 7 so about 14 days
that's a 100g cake on ys
for brewing, I start out with 15 seconds for the first infusion, adding 5 seconds each infusion
what do you mean?
I'm no tea expert
gongfu brewing method
instead of just infusing it in water for a couple of minutes, in gongfu, you use more tea leaves than you usually would but you infuse it for a short amount of time
wow that seems like a lot of work tbh
have you noticed a difference between the taste of regular infusion vs gongfu ?
gongfu is definitely better for noticing taste notes
the tea gradually changes with each infusion, rather than dumping all its notes into one cup
how long does it take you to brew 1 cup?
The actual steeping time or the preparation too?
About a minute (give or take) to get everything out and weigh the tea while the water is boiling and 15 seconds to brew the first cup
really, I thought with all the steps it would take a little longer
you just resteep as you want more
adding a few seconds each time
hmm, nice to know
what are your 3 favorite chink teas?
so far? the golden needle, jin xuan, and some alishan I've so far been unable to ID on the internet
and some taiwanese tieguanyin
tried any white teas?
not yet but I might get some in my next big yunnan haul
man I want to get into this whole tea thing
150ml feels a bit small to me
I'd get the 200ml version
that way, you can still brew like 130ml of tea and the leaves still have room to grow
oolong leaves get pretty big
anything else I would need?
only things you definitely need are the teapot and scale
maybe a $1 chink timer from ali
that's what I have
is glassware safe to buy from china?
whats the risk of it getting broken in transit?
I've bought ceramic and glass stuff from china and the chinks seem to package it pretty well
pretty low I'd reckon
off of Ali?
do you have a cool cup?
I'm using a plain white cup, does the job
ali chinks have tea cups but they're pretty small
yea I've been looking on ali
I feel like if i make a pot of tea i would want a smaller cup because it would keep me drinking
any 200ml cup should be fine imo
yeah smaller cup, that's what I mean
I like the stainless look
no 200, but 150 and 180
I heard metal makes things taste weird
I sort of noticed it with coffee
hmm, interesting, guess i never tried
might just have been a nocebo though
I'm lookin gon yunnan source for a good cup
I want more than 1 or 2 incase I had a few friends over and i they wanted tea
thanks for cheering me up with chink tea
chink tea fixes everything
what are your thoughts on bamboo charcoal as an enhancer?
wait so in some teapots can i just brew the tea in the pot?
no ideal about the charcol
but about the teapot, that's what you'd usually do
put tea leaves in the pot, brew it, pour
well i just spent $83 on tea
they really fuck you with the shipping
I would have gotten the tea cups domestically
normal people would have
I wanted it to be matching with the pot
got some new KZ ZS3's
now i can finally disect my old pair and re-shell my TF10's
yeay more chinkshitto on the way
tfw chink iems come before american microhpones
i want to try out some new chink earphone memes but my phone's jack broken...
hektik did i tell you my xiaomi pistons broke (jack) :(((
im gonna do a repair of it though
solder on a new one dood
i bought a new jack and a wire stripper
is it hard to strip wire with the braided cable + IEM wire being so thin?
braided isnt really a factor since you can unwind usually
thin-ness yeah tho
ye i thought it was gonna be a big pain
ill see how it goes when my stripper comes
i can imagine headphone wire being easy pease
but IEM cables are dam thin
i found a really sharp scalpel is better for thinner IEM cables
better than wire splitters?
i mean stripper*
depends on the strippers
mine arent fantastic so it might be why
i got a chink stripper from ebay
was 10 bux
works great for speaker cables n shit
but for headphone cabling its just too big
even headphone cables?
depends on the cable
ill prob buy a new pair of iems incase..
which do you recommend out of this bunch?
or do you have another recommendation
im happy to spend upto 35 aussie bux
i'm not a fan of ATE's tbh
but that is mostly because of fit
ZST's and ZS3's are nicer
and removable cable
ATE's were also super midbassy
all KZ iems tend to be but the ATE's just really bothered me with it
whats pricing like on those?
I'd recc ZS3/ZST and the KZ silver cable
ZS3 is like $13
and ZST is like $19
ZST for V-shaped
i like V shape v much
ZS3 for dark
what does dark mean
more warm-ish sub-bassy dark tbh but still
dark = less highs
i dont like it too warm
actually if its not overly warm
yeah ZST are probably better
ok ill setttle for those
get the KZ silver cable with it too tho
its like $5 on ebay
they're typically 20 bux?
why do i need extra cable?
stock one is really microphonic
also if you want to spend a little more look at Senfer UEs
super clean V-shape
cant find that on ali
i searched SENFER UE
yeah its a weird search
ali's search is super fucked
o shit the UEs went up in price
i noticed theres KZ ZST Pro and then a non pro?
should ig et anyone in particular
