I can also confirm that sample packs from Nothing But Tea are a very cost effective way to 'dip your toe in the water' for new tea origins - Bolivia, Georgia, Guatemala, African whites from Malawi - and the exclusive Tea Buffs' Club features limited edition teas that I bring back from my travels. Latest is, from World Tea Expo, a delectable New Zealand grown oolong that selected members will receive a few grams of as a taster.

You've got me. With July I will order some more tea. And I really like sample packs to try out some. NBT is on my list
I just looked up the VAT-table in the EU for all countries. Oh gosh - Austria lost in case of tea.
@Proinsias: So a real Pu-lover hast to be rich. - 700 Pound - I could never afford something like this. And I really would fear that I scrap this tea. I have to learn a lot. And Pu Erh is totally new to me. So I think I will start with something decent
Still the question. I never have heard about aged Oolong. Does Oolong benefit from ageing?
