Thanks Zana. Another tea adventure for me.

I exaggerate, but that's what it seems like.).

Should you decide you like Sheng (raw, my passion) or Shu (cooked), at that point, you can delve into http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/ . Scott is the premier pu-erh vendor in the world in my and most others' opinions. When you get to this point, you can do as I do and just order 20+ tuos or cakes at a time whence the shipping becomes relatively cheap.

Hope this helps.
