Default Pu-reh advisor sort!!!!!

Hello, I 'm new to the world of Pu-reh teas, and I'm seeking somebody with a
resonable amount of knowledge to guide my initial steps via e-mail
correspondence.

I'm literally tea total, but have till very recently stuck to basically
Assam, Darjeeling, English Breakfast and the occasional Gunpowder or Orange
Pekoe. ( my current supplier is a certain Chelsea based shop).

I recently tried a few different teas, and found the Pu-reh just
palatable,(young and brand not recalled) but was attracted by its aging
properties I already age cigars, and pipe tobacco's and get great enjoyment
from the gradual development. I should like to add this tea to my ever
growing stores.

Is there anybody willing to take on a "pupil" on a one to one net basis.

I'm a grumpy old man of 49 , proudly English and a wicked sense of humour.

Ian

I was just going to mention to you, without any malice, that Chinese
tea is not as easy as it sounds. Its a distance from English Breakfast,
a rather long and winding road perhaps. I am not sure what people say
is the best way to discover tea, but I am not sure aged/ageing Pu-erh
is the best option. Personally I started with reading a very novice
book, which is brief and sometimes a little wrong but it has a purpose,
this is "The Way of Tea" by Master Lam Kam Cheun (ISBN 1-85675-143-0).

It is really rather hard to get good tea in the UK, I know, if you want
a real taste you should always try and order from China.

Good luck!
