generationtea seems to have a very nice selection of solid midrange puerh. Is the quality consistent with the price?

Although as a total newbie who knows nothing about puerh, I do know that 2007 was not a good year for many teas. The way puerh is processed and then aged may change all that, but I'm just sayin'.

Both of these look good to me as well as the mini tuo

2006 Haiwan Remote Mountain Ancient Tree Pu-erh Tea
Haiwan * Certified Organic * Pasha Mountain Pu-erh Tea


vic

if you had to get one item out of my list, get that 1 kg brick by mengku. so worth it, you can drink it now and it is super smooth, and you can also save it for aging. there is a cheaper cake of the same leaves but of 2007. also look into this haiwan purple bud cake, it is superb.


Thanks HD, I ended up getting a sample of that one and a few others.
Not ready to make a big commitment yet. I'm really an oolong kind of girl.
Thanks for your help.

Aw, that's so sweet. I don't think we guys should be afraid to let our soft and conformist side show.
