Just letting everyone know I posted my first review on my very amateur blog, my first pu was the 2003 Keyixing Yiwu which I really liked. I'm deff not so sure about my steeping times and everything else. Like I said on my blog, any input would be great. :lol:

A tremendous "thank you" to ABX for a fantastic summary of all things pu. You've really helped me to put some of the small number of pu-erh teas that I've tasted into perspective and have performed an invaluable service to the tea drinking community.
