I've been enjoying the discussion on a thread about how newbies should go
about purchasing pu er ("question for you Pu-er experts" thread--which I
created it but soon was lost in from the discussion).

So, here you go. Anyone out the if you had a friend who was interested
in learning more about pu er and they told you "_________ (fill in the
blank: Mike! Jim! SEb! etc.) Your longstanding devotion to pu er has
inspired me. I have $100 (US)--please suggest a tea or teas that I should
buy (including vendors) so that I can start experiencing pu er (preferably
over the Internet because there are no local Chinatowns)."

What would you answer?

Just wondering about responses.
one of the newbies

To best answer that please tell us a bit about your tea experience.

Have you tried any peurhs at all yet?

Do you prefer black teas or green teas?

Do you currently use loose leaf or teabags?

What type of brewing equipment do you own?

$100 is a large budget for a first time around. Why so much? Are you
looking for a selection?
