samples, and then build up your repertoire from there...


Yes yes yes!

With Puerh it's very easy to build up a stock of tea that you aren't
enthusiastic about. The most typical unit is nominally 357 grams,
which is a *lot*, and it's easy to tell yourself that it's cheap for
the price, and besides, it might get better as it ages. Well, it
might, but it might not, so it's a very good idea to find out if you
really like the stuff before you buy, say, a hundred pots' worth.
