Evan Draper wrote:"First Step" is breezy and conversational. This makes a book that does have solid information feel a bit squishier. But it also makes the Western reader feel welcome in the oft-forbidding world of pu-erh.
Is Chen Zhi Tong's "Profound World of Chi-Tse" available in English, or is this just a translated title of a Chinese-only work?
As the book's name states, "First Step" is really fundamental.
I made it so simple that novices might get the preliminary ideas of the the wide spectrum of Puerh (from 1910's to 2006 selectively). At least beginners will know,
1. Antique Puerh Vintage
2. Masterpiece Puerh Vintage
3. Seven-son Tea Cake Vintage
4. New Era of Puerh Tea
These are the 4-major areas a Puerh tea beginner should manage to know.
If the "First Step" is too simple, try this one - "A Glossary of Chinese Puerh Tea". I put more information about the aged tea for further reading.
