First Pu-erh order just went out.
My curiosity has gotten me in trouble again! I just placed an order for my first Pu-erh tea through JAS-eTea. Instead of the sampler, I purchased 25gr samples of two green and two cooked teas. If I find this interesting, I will go for the larger samplers to get a wider variety. I purchased the Jingdezhen "Easy" Gaiwan "Blue on White Phoenix" 100ml to start with.
Using the descriptions, I picked the following.
2006 Haiwan "Peacock Quest" Ripe tea cake.
2002 Hai Lang Hao "Mengku Wild Arbor" cake.
2007 Menghai Tea Factory "7572 Ripe" Tea cake.
2005 Xiaguan "Xia Fa Crane Label" Ripe tea cake.
Something new for 2010!
Any suggestions for other Pu-erh’s that I “Must try” for starting out are welcome.
