It would be funny to think that the 2 people who have >200kg are NOT the same 2 people who said they have enough for many lifetimes.
I would like to know how many different teas the two people who have more than 200 kg of Puerh have?

Interesting topic. No surprising that we have more than 200 kilo puerh at our home in Wuhan, which we could never drink up, although some of them may will be disposed some day, especially factories products.
Luckily I found out our marriage memory cake...looks like only two were left with us, others have been given to close friends. Looking through those tea is just like looking through past histories :) That's one of the reasons I appreciate puerh tea---it can be with us for a really long time, and it becomes better when aging.

May I have some more of your LBZ? It was a real treat, thanks! :)

I got around 30 kg. Plenty but...how much is enough? :mrgreen:

Noted :mrgreen: You know it is common for tea makers to have puerh "enough for many lifetimes". When chatting about what to do with these teas, one of the maker friends said that all his tea will be left to his only son, while another one said that he would use them up by taking bath with puerh tea before he died :D

And that tea bath sounds absolutely amazing :shock:

I'd say pu-erh is looking like a pretty good store of value. I've just sold a little bar of gold to convert to pu-erh. In my heart of hearts there is a speculator but people like me more when I stick to the 'store of value' story. :mrgreen:

:mrgreen: chat above mentioned was about what to do with their puerh when death coming eventually, not that kind of seriously talking, and money was not even considered at that time. :D

OK, no more talk about money. :D You're right, there's enough of that already in other threads. As for me, including the tong I just ordered, I probably have 8 - 10 kilos, but about half of it is tuition, maybe only good for a foot bath.
