Typically for enjoyment, I have a few crates of different tea from different era nicely "filed" and I call them everyday tea. The pick normally is according to my mood and curiosity.
For thorough study and understanding, I brew tea from different mountains ( eg Youle, Yiwu, Hekai, Gedeng etc) or region (eg Menghai, Mengla, Bulang, Lincang etc) every 3 months at different ages. This is to understand how different mountain or area tea character and how they aged.

It is up to you to plan your program to suit your quest but most important is to do your tea homework diligently. The only way to learn is to do it and gain the experience from it ....... doggedly and consistently....

Have a good day. Cheers!

I remember LBZ costed around 3000rmb/500g, the price changes everyday and is not 'pure' LBZ so to speak..

I heard Lincang's Bingdao and Xigui were around 2000 (crazy price!)..Yiwu (Gua Feng Zai) was also over 1000. DXS might be cheaper for maocha..

Finished brewing 1999 Hua Yuan "Jing Brand" raw puerh cake. Not very impressed ... very smokey for a tea this old. Starting some 8972 from LiT now. Interesting so far, but only one brew in.

Cold weather. Tea transition time.
Some '07 Secret Aroma Shu fit the bill.
