That's the title of a new pu-erh book I've just put in my Amazon shopping cart. Better yet are the free accompanying videos:

You're welcome. :) Never heard of bookdepository before. I love that worldwide free shipping but for now I'm stuck with Amazon till I use up my gift certificates.

Loved the Videos, especially the lady picking tea while complaining about her daughter in law, too funny. The book is on my to buy list also.

Since the author is faculty at a university in Yunnan, I'm hoping for more realistic details than from someone traveling there briefly with interpreters to add local color to work written mostly elsewhere. Bought it.

I just started reading it this morning. So far so good. The author is from Yunnan and seems very knowledgeable.

Amazon acquired Book Depository in 2011.

Does someone have an idea which company/family is producing the tea in DVD 4?

Judging by the image that can be seen I'd say 郑四隆 Zhen Si Long

Just bought this book on Amazon, along with The Tea Sommelier and two other tea oriented books. Looks like I will have some more reading to go with my tea.

I'm still waiting for my order to be shipped. There was only one copy left when I posted. Should've ordered, then posted :? Not a big deal, though.

I ordered an e-book version--no fear of copies running out.
