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!
