Thread: Bai Jiu (Moutai)

  1. #1

    Bai Jiu (Moutai)

    Helps my kung fu. Its different from other spirits it goes to the spleen and you can keep your balance even when you toe up. Tequilla makes me into an Aztec Huizalipotchli, Bai jiu turns me into Li Bai.

    Ever train with the bai jiu?

    Where can you buy some Mao Tai (thats how I roll) in the US?

    rice wine is for southern weaklings.

    Real men drink Baijiu.

    My drug of choice tends to be 绵竹大曲 (52% alcohol, made from sorghum but with some rice, wheat and corn in the blend.

    As it happens, today (speaking of Li Bai...) I am drinking Taibai (50% alcohol, made from sorghum, wheat and (dried?) peas. NO RICE!

    1 li bai was a poet. a bit drinking relaxed him and good poems created.

    drink to the bright moon etc etc

    2 guan yu or guan yun chang had a red face

    it is difficult to see his face redder or not after some rice wine.

    drink a bit but not too much.

    Chinese wines are all shyte. All of them.
    Drink a single malt scotch whisky if you want to have a real drink.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Typical middle class Chinese monthly income in the city: 300-500$
    Price of a (3/4 litre) bottle of decent single malt scotch: 30$
    Price of a (1/2 litre) bottle of either of the Chinese drinks I mentioned: <1$

    A bottle of single malt scotch costs about equal to my entire disposable income for 1 week.

    we may confide our feelings/emotions with mountain and water.

    we may confide our feelings/emotions with music, poems, painting etc etc

    we may be drunk (well absorbed) with all these things other than bottles.

    I can't abide scotch, but I quite like Bai Jiu. And anything that gets you that wrecked for 3 Yuan is a winner

    Comparing fine scotch with er gua tou? Silly savages.

    I have had imperial rice wine, it is not like anything you have ever had. Good baijiu is incomparabe, which is why I am looking for it in the US.

    It is also important for pao jiu. Herbal wines are important for kung fu. Even shaolin monks had training wines because kung fu trumps Buddhism.

    I'm pretty sure the only thing tongs do nowadays is make sure Chinese restaurants don't pay out tips to their waiters. - Pazman[/B]
