Reference book on Pu-erh tea

Postby hop_goblin » May 22nd, '06, 13:41

Hello, I have searched in vain to find a book soley dedicated to pu-erh tea. Does anyone recommend a book that can be used as a great reference tool. It doesn't have to be soley dedicated to Pu-reh but more than a chapter would be really nice.

Unfortunately, the only ones I know are in Chinese. Apparently, one was published years ago by the Xishuangbanna government (a puerh producing region) but it's long out of print.

How about an article? I just looked in Amazon.com and found a 2579 word ebook article called "Exploring specialty teas in Southwest China.(Pressed Pu-erh tea) : An article from: Tea & Coffee Trade Journal [HTML] (Digital)". However, it does cost $5.95 to download. If you're interested in reading about it or downloading it, look at this page on Amazon. Good luck, Hop_goblin.

If you want you can write your own and publish it through lulu.com (relax its a suggestion not a plug, I'm getting nothing from this). My first book through there is supposed to arrive later this week, along with my adagio and dragonwater shipments

Try Puerh A Westerner's Quest its not a book but its probably one of the best puerh references in English available.
