2017-05-15 02:04:47 UTC

2017-05-15 02:07:43 UTC

Any shoop scam experts here?

2017-05-15 02:07:44 UTC

@here

2017-05-15 02:08:13 UTC

Is the paper a shoop

2017-05-15 02:08:16 UTC

it looks sketchy

2017-05-15 02:09:29 UTC

why are you wondering? is this /csg/ related?

2017-05-15 02:12:45 UTC

yes it is, look at that shadow, it's not over the paper

2017-05-15 02:13:25 UTC

pmuch

2017-05-15 02:13:35 UTC

it looks really out of place

2017-05-15 02:14:11 UTC

Zoom in, enhance

2017-05-15 02:14:17 UTC

Terrible shop

2017-05-15 02:29:08 UTC

I need to get an ssd to put in my media center, is kingdian still the best bang for the buck?

2017-05-15 02:30:18 UTC

i think drevo pro is the hot new meme

2017-05-15 02:31:34 UTC

hmm, kingdian is still cheaper

2017-05-15 02:33:21 UTC

id wait for more reviews

2017-05-15 02:33:32 UTC

drevo is just being shilled slowly at this point

2017-05-15 02:33:49 UTC

seems like I'll just stick with a low capacity kingdian

2017-05-15 02:53:00 UTC

I'm sad and I want to buy cool chink shit

2017-05-15 02:53:06 UTC

what buy??

2017-05-15 02:53:14 UTC

chinese tea

2017-05-15 02:53:38 UTC

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/189466684938125312/313509202272452618/chingchong.png

2017-05-15 02:54:03 UTC

what teas do you reccommend?

2017-05-15 02:54:05 UTC

>Chinese tea

2017-05-15 02:54:08 UTC

Pls no

2017-05-15 02:54:22 UTC

I thought chink tea was safe

2017-05-15 02:54:25 UTC

Buy seeds :^)

2017-05-15 02:54:31 UTC

Highly doubtful

2017-05-15 02:54:35 UTC

dch approved

2017-05-15 02:55:00 UTC

Nah i have no need for seeds

2017-05-15 02:55:09 UTC

I

2017-05-15 02:55:16 UTC

chinese tea is safe if you stick to the good vendors

2017-05-15 02:55:20 UTC

like yunnan sourcing

2017-05-15 02:55:32 UTC

what are the vendors you buy from?

2017-05-15 02:55:52 UTC

I buy from yunnan sourcing, which is probably the most popular one

2017-05-15 02:56:02 UTC

but people also like teavivre and white2tea

2017-05-15 02:56:19 UTC

2017-05-15 02:56:23 UTC

golden needle on the left is good shit

2017-05-15 02:57:03 UTC

nice, do you buy loose leaf or bag?

2017-05-15 02:57:14 UTC

loose leaf

2017-05-15 02:57:31 UTC

with puer like the cakes I posted just now, you have to break it apart

2017-05-15 02:57:47 UTC

but in the end, its loose leaf

2017-05-15 02:58:17 UTC

what are good non-meme chink sunglasses

2017-05-15 02:58:20 UTC

<:thonk:288060975775612929>

<:dinking:306815408931995649>

2017-05-15 02:58:37 UTC

i have two pairs and their great

2017-05-15 02:59:06 UTC

UV coating is legit, right?

2017-05-15 02:59:14 UTC

sometimes you can get chinked on the size of lens on chinese sunglasses so be careful for that

2017-05-15 02:59:19 UTC

yea UV is legit

2017-05-15 02:59:25 UTC

not bad <:thonk:288060975775612929>

2017-05-15 02:59:29 UTC

I can't find the golden needle tea

2017-05-15 02:59:38 UTC

most sunglasses, even chink ones, got uv coating

2017-05-15 02:59:49 UTC

I own two pairs of these

2017-05-15 03:00:34 UTC

pretty much my daily drinker right now

2017-05-15 03:00:35 UTC

Dog bless

2017-05-15 03:00:41 UTC

before my other puer cakes get here

2017-05-15 03:01:01 UTC

do you store it in stainless steal container or what it comes in?

2017-05-15 03:01:10 UTC

I just store it in the wrapper

2017-05-15 03:01:13 UTC

air is good for puer

2017-05-15 03:01:20 UTC

just store it away from light

2017-05-15 03:01:21 UTC

never been too much of a tea guy myself, how is it? I've mostly just stuck with plain old earl grey

2017-05-15 03:01:24 UTC

What should I buy with the tea? Should I buy myself one of those tea pots?

2017-05-15 03:01:51 UTC

get one of these glass teapots or ceramic gaiwans they sell, I'd say

2017-05-15 03:01:55 UTC

how long does 1 cake last?

2017-05-15 03:02:36 UTC

I use 7g each time for 130ml, so 100 / 7 so about 14 days

2017-05-15 03:03:06 UTC

that's a 100g cake on ys

2017-05-15 03:03:58 UTC

nice

2017-05-15 03:04:43 UTC

for brewing, I start out with 15 seconds for the first infusion, adding 5 seconds each infusion

2017-05-15 03:04:57 UTC

?

2017-05-15 03:05:02 UTC

what do you mean?

2017-05-15 03:05:08 UTC

I'm no tea expert

2017-05-15 03:05:14 UTC

gongfu brewing method

2017-05-15 03:05:54 UTC

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

2017-05-15 03:06:41 UTC

wow that seems like a lot of work tbh

2017-05-15 03:07:14 UTC

have you noticed a difference between the taste of regular infusion vs gongfu ?

2017-05-15 03:07:54 UTC

gongfu is definitely better for noticing taste notes

2017-05-15 03:08:19 UTC

the tea gradually changes with each infusion, rather than dumping all its notes into one cup

2017-05-15 03:09:13 UTC

how long does it take you to brew 1 cup?

2017-05-15 03:09:58 UTC

The actual steeping time or the preparation too?

2017-05-15 03:10:13 UTC

all together

2017-05-15 03:10:49 UTC

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

2017-05-15 03:11:38 UTC

really, I thought with all the steps it would take a little longer

2017-05-15 03:12:00 UTC

you just resteep as you want more

2017-05-15 03:12:10 UTC

adding a few seconds each time

2017-05-15 03:13:32 UTC

hmm, nice to know

2017-05-15 03:13:46 UTC

what are your 3 favorite chink teas?

2017-05-15 03:15:13 UTC

so far? the golden needle, jin xuan, and some alishan I've so far been unable to ID on the internet

2017-05-15 03:15:30 UTC

and some taiwanese tieguanyin

2017-05-15 03:18:54 UTC

tried any white teas?

2017-05-15 03:19:54 UTC

not yet but I might get some in my next big yunnan haul

2017-05-15 03:20:09 UTC

nice

2017-05-15 03:24:08 UTC

man I want to get into this whole tea thing

2017-05-15 03:32:07 UTC

150ml feels a bit small to me

2017-05-15 03:32:15 UTC

I'd get the 200ml version

2017-05-15 03:32:20 UTC

ok

2017-05-15 03:32:33 UTC

that way, you can still brew like 130ml of tea and the leaves still have room to grow

2017-05-15 03:32:42 UTC

oolong leaves get pretty big

2017-05-15 03:32:43 UTC

I see

2017-05-15 03:34:05 UTC

anything else I would need?

2017-05-15 03:34:25 UTC

only things you definitely need are the teapot and scale

2017-05-15 03:34:33 UTC

maybe a $1 chink timer from ali

2017-05-15 03:34:38 UTC

that's what I have

2017-05-15 03:34:40 UTC

alright

2017-05-15 03:40:06 UTC

is glassware safe to buy from china?

2017-05-15 03:40:20 UTC

whats the risk of it getting broken in transit?

2017-05-15 03:40:45 UTC

I've bought ceramic and glass stuff from china and the chinks seem to package it pretty well

2017-05-15 03:40:46 UTC

so

2017-05-15 03:40:53 UTC

pretty low I'd reckon

2017-05-15 03:41:08 UTC

off of Ali?

2017-05-15 03:41:13 UTC

yeah ali

2017-05-15 03:44:02 UTC

do you have a cool cup?

2017-05-15 03:44:34 UTC

i wish

2017-05-15 03:44:44 UTC

I'm using a plain white cup, does the job

2017-05-15 03:45:03 UTC

ali chinks have tea cups but they're pretty small

2017-05-15 03:45:34 UTC

yea I've been looking on ali

2017-05-15 03:46:09 UTC

I feel like if i make a pot of tea i would want a smaller cup because it would keep me drinking

2017-05-15 03:46:09 UTC

any 200ml cup should be fine imo

2017-05-15 03:46:24 UTC

yeah smaller cup, that's what I mean

2017-05-15 03:46:46 UTC

I like the stainless look

2017-05-15 03:46:58 UTC

no 200, but 150 and 180

2017-05-15 03:47:00 UTC

I heard metal makes things taste weird

2017-05-15 03:47:05 UTC

I sort of noticed it with coffee

2017-05-15 03:47:17 UTC

hmm, interesting, guess i never tried

2017-05-15 03:47:20 UTC

might just have been a nocebo though

2017-05-15 03:48:13 UTC

I'm lookin gon yunnan source for a good cup

2017-05-15 03:49:03 UTC

I want more than 1 or 2 incase I had a few friends over and i they wanted tea

2017-05-15 03:52:55 UTC

thanks for cheering me up with chink tea

2017-05-15 03:53:27 UTC

chink tea fixes everything

2017-05-15 03:53:31 UTC

<:alismirk:230784726615588865>

2017-05-15 03:57:06 UTC

what are your thoughts on bamboo charcoal as an enhancer?

2017-05-15 04:02:49 UTC

wait so in some teapots can i just brew the tea in the pot?

2017-05-15 04:09:40 UTC

no ideal about the charcol

2017-05-15 04:10:00 UTC

but about the teapot, that's what you'd usually do

2017-05-15 04:10:10 UTC

put tea leaves in the pot, brew it, pour

2017-05-15 04:15:32 UTC

well i just spent $83 on tea

2017-05-15 04:15:43 UTC

they really fuck you with the shipping

2017-05-15 04:19:34 UTC

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/189466684938125312/313530828657262593/Tea.png

2017-05-15 04:30:21 UTC

I would have gotten the tea cups domestically

2017-05-15 04:32:49 UTC

normal people would have

2017-05-15 04:33:47 UTC

eh

2017-05-15 04:34:10 UTC

I wanted it to be matching with the pot

2017-05-15 06:41:17 UTC

wew lads

2017-05-15 06:41:21 UTC

got some new KZ ZS3's

2017-05-15 06:51:45 UTC

2017-05-15 06:58:28 UTC

2017-05-15 07:01:21 UTC

2017-05-15 07:01:33 UTC
2017-05-15 07:01:51 UTC

tfw chink iems come before american microhpones

2017-05-15 07:01:52 UTC

sup ya'lllLl

2017-05-15 07:02:01 UTC

i want to try out some new chink earphone memes but my phone's jack broken...

2017-05-15 07:02:13 UTC

hektik did i tell you my xiaomi pistons broke (jack) :(((

2017-05-15 07:02:18 UTC

:((

2017-05-15 07:02:22 UTC

im gonna do a repair of it though

2017-05-15 07:02:22 UTC

solder on a new one dood

2017-05-15 07:02:25 UTC

yerr exactly

2017-05-15 07:02:28 UTC

i bought a new jack and a wire stripper

2017-05-15 07:02:39 UTC

is it hard to strip wire with the braided cable + IEM wire being so thin?

2017-05-15 07:03:07 UTC

braided isnt really a factor since you can unwind usually

2017-05-15 07:03:12 UTC

thin-ness yeah tho

2017-05-15 07:03:23 UTC

ye i thought it was gonna be a big pain

2017-05-15 07:03:27 UTC

ill see how it goes when my stripper comes

2017-05-15 07:03:33 UTC

i can imagine headphone wire being easy pease

2017-05-15 07:03:37 UTC

but IEM cables are dam thin

2017-05-15 07:03:39 UTC

i found a really sharp scalpel is better for thinner IEM cables

2017-05-15 07:03:45 UTC

oh

2017-05-15 07:03:52 UTC

better than wire splitters?

2017-05-15 07:03:56 UTC

i mean stripper*

2017-05-15 07:04:00 UTC

depends on the strippers

2017-05-15 07:04:03 UTC

oh ok

2017-05-15 07:04:06 UTC

mine arent fantastic so it might be why

2017-05-15 07:04:06 UTC

i got a chink stripper from ebay

2017-05-15 07:04:09 UTC

was 10 bux

2017-05-15 07:04:13 UTC

works great for speaker cables n shit

2017-05-15 07:04:16 UTC

yep yep

2017-05-15 07:04:21 UTC

but for headphone cabling its just too big

2017-05-15 07:04:27 UTC

even headphone cables?

2017-05-15 07:04:33 UTC

depends on the cable

2017-05-15 07:04:37 UTC

mm ok

2017-05-15 07:04:46 UTC

ill prob buy a new pair of iems incase..

2017-05-15 07:04:57 UTC

which do you recommend out of this bunch?

2017-05-15 07:05:07 UTC

or do you have another recommendation

2017-05-15 07:05:11 UTC

im happy to spend upto 35 aussie bux

2017-05-15 07:05:17 UTC

i'm not a fan of ATE's tbh

2017-05-15 07:05:22 UTC

but that is mostly because of fit

2017-05-15 07:05:31 UTC

ohh

2017-05-15 07:05:37 UTC

ZST's and ZS3's are nicer

2017-05-15 07:05:49 UTC

and removable cable

2017-05-15 07:05:58 UTC

ATE's were also super midbassy

2017-05-15 07:06:09 UTC

all KZ iems tend to be but the ATE's just really bothered me with it

2017-05-15 07:06:30 UTC

ok thanks

2017-05-15 07:06:33 UTC

whats pricing like on those?

2017-05-15 07:06:40 UTC

I'd recc ZS3/ZST and the KZ silver cable

2017-05-15 07:06:45 UTC

ZS3 is like $13

2017-05-15 07:06:49 UTC

and ZST is like $19

2017-05-15 07:06:53 UTC

ZST for V-shaped

2017-05-15 07:06:59 UTC

i like V shape v much

2017-05-15 07:07:02 UTC

ZS3 for dark

2017-05-15 07:07:13 UTC

what does dark mean

2017-05-15 07:07:14 UTC

more warm-ish sub-bassy dark tbh but still

2017-05-15 07:07:16 UTC

ohh

2017-05-15 07:07:18 UTC

gotcha

2017-05-15 07:07:24 UTC

dark = less highs

2017-05-15 07:07:25 UTC

i dont like it too warm

2017-05-15 07:07:34 UTC

actually if its not overly warm

2017-05-15 07:07:34 UTC

yeah ZST are probably better

2017-05-15 07:07:35 UTC

its OK

2017-05-15 07:07:40 UTC

ok ill setttle for those

2017-05-15 07:07:41 UTC

thanks mate

2017-05-15 07:07:50 UTC

get the KZ silver cable with it too tho

2017-05-15 07:07:56 UTC

its like $5 on ebay

2017-05-15 07:08:11 UTC

they're typically 20 bux?

2017-05-15 07:08:13 UTC

these IEMs

2017-05-15 07:08:27 UTC

rip link

2017-05-15 07:08:40 UTC

why do i need extra cable?

2017-05-15 07:08:55 UTC

stock one is really microphonic

2017-05-15 07:09:12 UTC

also if you want to spend a little more look at Senfer UEs

2017-05-15 07:09:15 UTC

super clean V-shape

2017-05-15 07:09:23 UTC

tho mmcx

2017-05-15 07:10:07 UTC

cant find that on ali

2017-05-15 07:10:12 UTC

i searched SENFER UE
