Wow how sweet of you! Thanks! As you know I dabble a little in pu-erh, but I don't think I'm going to be converted. I find it much easier to order something that someone else recommends and has tried than venturing out on my own. Mostly loose sheng falls closer to my comfort zone. I have had both sheng and shu that I really enjoyed. But, I've yet to find a beng that I can commit to.
Awhile back, earlier this year, there was a beautiful, and quite expensive, large golden colored beng that caught several people's attention. It may have been from silver needle, but I can't remember. If I could find that one now, I'd probably buy it. I asked Sal but he doesn't remember it. But I remember several people here made a big deal over it. It was before you joined us. If anyone remembers please let me know!
As for me as of late, I am just now getting to some of the samples I bought from
YS on your recommend. Just had one so far. I'm pacing myself! Ha! Actually cooler weather is making me think pu-erh.
