I have had several Shui Xian teas, but even the best does not seem to me as good as most Da Hong Pao. I generally prefer less roasting rather than more, especially in aged teas but also in recent yancha. I also like Rou Gui, the lighter teas from further south in Fujian, like Tie Quan Yin and Se Zhong, as well as the oolongs from Taiwan. I have been drinking quite a bit of Japanese green tea lately, but I also love the Chinese greens.
It must be wonderful to travel in Yunnan province and the Wuyi area. I have seen photos. bearsbearsbears of this forum has traveled quite a bit in China, specifically going to learn about tea. You might want to send him a PM (Personal Message) in case he hasn't seen this thread.
At the moment I am enjoying a year 2005 Menghai 7562 ripe/cooked/shu puerh from a brick. It's good but it takes 2 or 3 rinses to get the "swamp" smell out of it. You might enjoy Hop_Goblin's blog about puerh at http://ancientteahorseroad.blogspot.com/ . He is the guy who posted just above.
Does GZ stand for Guangzhou?

What a great blog!!! I've really enjoyed reading this. Thank you!
It seem to me that the common way in USA and UK to prepare the puerh tea is gong fu method. Generally I use 4 grams to 8 grams of tea with 100 to 150 ml of water to prepare puerh for myself alone. I use either a little Yixing style teapot:Chinese tea wrote:In what way you prepare Puer tea, using Kongfu method or others? I would like to hear how you prepare Puer tea for yourself to enjoy.
I will not be attending either of these events but they sound like terrific opportunities to learn and to have a little fun with tea and people.Chinese tea wrote:There is Chinese Famous Tea Expo in April in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. and there is an international tea expo in Shanghai in May.
