This sticky will serve as a table of contents and a database for everything and anything relating to Pu'erh tea. It not only is a good place for people new to pu to soak up a good deal of information, but also just a quick and easy way to find things within the Pu'erh section of Teachat. It will be updated as things need to be added or changed.
First off, if your new to the world of pu you are sure to have a list of questions that when answered will lead to even more questions. Puerhking has put together a lovely introduction thread here where most of your questions will probably be answered. Welcome and have fun!
Here are the threads dedicated to tea reviews for specific vendors, all written by members of Teachat. You will find many of the things on the vendors websites have been reviewed quite well by one or more members, and if you don’t see it posted you can always ask about it. Some things of course just don’t make it to the forum. If you plan on purchasing something, check out what others think of it first!

We started the Official Puerh Box Pass back in August. It's currently still going, although registration has been closed. Be sure to check back here when the next one will be comming around. It's a great way to share and sample puerh with fellow pu'chatters.
One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.
