15. I found that

this is a good place to get it

https://www.tealyra.com/loose-tea/puerh-tea/20-year-aged-iceland-puerh-raw/

Our 20 Year Aged Iceland Pu'erh is a fine aged raw (sheng) pu’erh from Mengku Iceland Tea Garden in Shuangjiang County, Yunnan. Iceland tea 冰岛茶 is a famous and highly sought after Yunnan tea with a rich history recorded back during the Ming Dynasty (before 1485). It is grown in a small village that sits isolated 2,000 meters above sea level along the once-bustling and absolutely historical Ancient Tea-Horse Road.

Picked from large, wild ancient trees (over 100 years old) and is composed of whole, unbroken twisted large leaves. It is said that the leaves of Mengku trees are dark green and soft, with an especially strong fragrance that is very unique.
When the tea is initially steeped, it has a slightly woodsy aroma, then releases a smoky floral richness. This Aged Iceland pu’erh totally comes alive after the first infusion- it is incredibly smooth, with a slight camphor, incense like note. It has a strong chaqi that is smoked, smooth, fresh and has just a touch of astringency.

5. I love it

though I also have a place in my heart for Dragon Well, Monkey picked spring high mountain tea, and a few others.

I did spring a ridiculous amount per pound for some 60 year old Pu'erh.. $20 went a really long way. Amazing.

I was fortunate enough to live in Shanghai for 4 years. It was a wonderful experience and I treasure the memories.

12. I moved there for work from 2009 to 2013

We lived in Pudong. I travelled around Asia Pacific a good bit (Vietnam, Korea, Japan, India, Australia, Singapore) but I do wish I had made a greater effort to travel more throughout China. Only went to Xian for the warrior soldiers and Beijing.

What was your favorite memory?

13. Cool!

I have so many great memories. I guess eating at a little hole in the wall jiao zi guan with my classmates talking with locals would be one highlight I remember fondly.

6. I've never had the pleasure, but watching the ritual was therapeutic.

It was a balm for my poor harrowed brain, which is too steeped in political horrors. Thanks for posting.
