Recent Order of Pu-Erh

by TaiPing Hou Kui » Feb 17th, '08, 13:46

Hey guys! I just purchased these two Pu-Erh's from "www.taooftea.com". Just wondering if any of you have tried them and if so, how good they are, etc.

-100% Organic Pu-Erh Velour 1.oz
-100% Organic Pu-Erh Toucha 1.oz


Thanks!

-Nick (TaiPing)

I have never tried it personally. However, if you are new to puerh, I would recommend dry aged samples from well known factories. Generic puerh has a tendency to turn off people as they usually may be sort of "crappy". As a consequence, you could be ending your puerh journey before it even begins.

I think I would stay away from Tao of Tea. I have heard VERY bad things about their puerh.

I'd suggest going to a more trusted source for samples first. Puerhshop is a cheapish choice. Hou De is pricier, but some of their older stuff (i.e. been around their site for a while) are actually still reasonably priced.

Indeed, be wary of this "generic" pu-erh. By the way, both of those are "cooked" shu, which is not the most liked by the masses.
