i don't know. there is no rhyme or reason when it comes to ordering stuff for me. something inside told me just to get 5 of each of those. i have tasted the my ye chun one and i have tasted that other one too, the wild arbor one, 2007. i loved them both.

They all seem to be the same diameter, just thicker than the 357s.
Although, it's probably good to have an extra inch for ventilation anyway.. and just in case I'm wrong. :)

To tell you the truth I think I am going to build another puidor! I am getting scared about loading up a little box full of tea with no room for air to circulate. I am probably going for a cupboard, sort of like yours. Something very large so there is lots of room for air movement. When my Bai Cha Tang cake gets here it sure as heck isnt going in the pumidor, Just too expensive to see killed with mold. It would make an excellent cigar humidor. . . .

The boxes below contain pu as well. I just rotate my stock by placing them on the rack. I have acquired a few more beengs since I have taken this pic.
So, now, is this in addition to your humidor or is this the humidor?

Dizzwave That is one nice cast-off piece of furniture! My good furniture isn't that great! LOL

Awesome collections, both.

How does one make this thread a sticky, I think it should stay so people can always post new additions to their collection.

Salsero that pic was awesome. You should make a tea picture book all of your pictures are like art! This thread is such a good idea. I just started getting into puerh and this is great place to see what I should get.

Just got my big order in from YS!!! Hey, I bought those 'rust gradient' cups, and the glaze is cracking - looks cool, but is it suppose to do it? (looks like crackle glaze after the cup was exposed to heat).

Nice! Please be sure to tell us your thoughts on the teas, Is that Menghai cake an 8582? I tried that from the pu box and was really impressed by it, Its really smooth and has a great flavor. Lotta bang for the buck!
