I would like to spend under $200 to get some Oolongs and Puerhs.
Some teas I liked: Bao Zhong, Rou Gui, "silver needle" puerh cake, some random earthy puerhs. I generally didn't like Dan Congs I tried, I think because of a bitter note that seemed similar to bitter note of alcohol to me, and it seemed "thin" tasting. But those might have been bad DCs. Or it could be i just prefer green Oolongs.
I used to buy some teas from Jing tea shop and Hou De fine teas.
I'm not sure how to split $200 between oolongs and puerhs, and which vendors to try and which types of tea to try.
I have a good quality Gaiwan.
Owes its flavors to oxidation levels between green & black tea.
