So, I’m looking to broaden my tea horizons. I’ve been trying a lot of teas lately to see what kinds I like and I’ve been hearing good things about pu-erh. I’d like to buy some but I’m not sure what to go for. My town isn’t large and diverse enough to have a place that sells pu-erh, so my only likely source seems to be the internet. However, there seems to be all kinds of different pu-erh tea, and I don’t know where to start or how to pick one that I might enjoy.
A general summary of my tea tastes is thus:
Rooibos: Yum! As in, really, really yum!
Green tea: Yuck!
Ginger tea: Nice.
Chamomile: Probably good, although I’ve never had straight chamomile tea.
Black tea: Meh.
White tea: Wait, have I even bought any of this yet? Crap! I need to get some.
Glancing over this, it looks to me like I like sweet tasting , so my guess is that I should try to find a sweet tasting pu-erh. But I was hoping for some advice from people who knew what they were talking about, so any help that anyone might provide would be much appreciated.
