So if you do buy some beengs from Scott at YSLLC, start up a thread titled something like "YSLLC Reviews" and we all can scribble out thoughts on his stuff in there.
Coming back to the puerhshop tasting, it seems as if the package the most love is being showed for is "Taste of Mellowness." Anybody feel strongly against having this tasting first?
Me too. And I am at least a little creeped out by the fact that our host is a vendor, essentially a competitor of some of the stuff we plan to discuss. It doesn't seem like good manners. Sort of like making dovey eyes with some chick in her husband's house -- esp when you know he has an aresenal in the next room!Trioxin wrote: I'm worried it would wind up being a mess of reviews and discussions. Would it be possible for sub forums for main vendors that allow separate threads for reviews?
Well, at least one of us has a sense of adventure. Ron has taken the plunge and I will follow suit later today.Ron Gilmour wrote:I've only tried pu-er once, and I don't think it was a very good one. ... I've just ordered the Year of Green from Pu-erh Shop.

Of course, we LOVE the interntional flavor. The only limitation would be how far Jim at Puerhshop is willing to ship and whether you are willing to pay the shipping. I assume that he is like everyone else and delighted to ship anywhere at a modest price. But check out the site. http://www.puerhshop.com/silverneedles wrote:Everybody from all corners of the world is welcome to the pu tasting!
