P.S. at Houde Asian art, they have an excellent 272 pg. book on pu-erh and pu-erh appreciation typed in ENGLISH! "First Steps to Chinese pu-erh", Better get them while they are there!
Can you make any recommendations for something that's ready to drink now and won't break the bank? Not having tried it, I don't even know if I like puerh tea, but I find the who thing rather intriguing and certainly something I'd like to try.
That book looks pretty interesting. If I do get into drinking pu-erh I might have to consider buying one.
From Yunnan Sourcing I bought some 2004 Six Famous Tea Mountain Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick and some 2006 Jiu Wan Tong Qing Hao Raw Pu-erh Tea Brick based on a recommendation from someone else on these forums. It shipped a few days ago from China so I'm hoping to get it by the end of January.
