Pu-Erh Intro? Literature?

by Thirsty Daruma » Jan 12th, '08, 18:04

I dearly love all the Pu-Erh reviews floating around the internet, notably Half-Dipper's work, but I'm afraid most of the vocabulary and categorization is lost on me. Is there an "Intro to Pu-Erh" available anymore that could give at least a rudimentary glimpse into the mystic world of Pu-Erh tea?

How could I forget, the wikipedia article has an enormous amount of info.

I hope you have the good sense not to take advice from a monkey!

It's also written by BearsBearsBears, if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, I think BBB redid a terrible Wikipedia article a year or two ago and is responsible for the current one.

Now let's see, is it better to take advice from a bear (or 3 bears) or a monkey?

I'd say the cubic bear– I've always distrusted animals with opposable thumbs.
