Absolutely. He's won me over by his approach. My reviews both positive and negative are up. He'll be getting another order from me the next go around (I currently have a few things in route from Hou De and a couple other places so that may not be for a couple weeks).
If you order from HouDe you will generally recieve it in a couple of days!

Very nice thread to read. My personal experience is that I was lucky (or unlucky) enough to get my first taste of Pu erh from Hou de. The tea was pretty expensive for my budget, so I bought a small sample. I remember thinking it was a good tea, but never thought it was anything special. I just assumed that all pu-erh would taste the same way. How wrong I was! I proceeded to buy cheaper Pu from various other sources (including Hou de). Two years have passed, and I've never tasted Pu-erh as good as the first batch. It was only then that I realized how good my first pu erh was in comparison. So if I had to do it all over again, I would work my way from the bottom up slowly
