I have enough puer for my lifetime and probably for my children also. But that does not seem to stop me from buying more... :shock:

At 10g a day, 365 days a year, it would take 185kg of tea to satisfy 50 years of drinking. But that particular calculation doesn't seem to tally with the quiz results, so people are probably allowing for fewer grams a day?

I was browsing my stash today - here is a few kg - the bamboo wrapped brick is 2003 yiwu sheng. After not buying any tea mail order for a few years I broke down and did a touchatea order. A few cakes of 2008 7542 to add to the forget and let age pile. That top menghai cake is a 2008 7262, I did not realize I had it. I think I will let that one get to 10 years before I drink it.

Wow! Until I saw this topic I never thought about it. But after counting just my full cakes, I have over 60 kilos. Now that doesn't count the 200 gram cakes, tuo cha, or bricks. And also doesn't factor in cakes above 357 grams. The first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem. I'm not there yet so the addiction continues.

Seeing people with more tea than me is great, it helps me justify buying more
