Is there a comprehensive tea review site out there someplace, or is
there just too much variety and inconsistency from crop to crop to
support such a thing? There is a great resource for pipe tobacco
reviews that I use, but haven't seen anything similar for tea.

Thanks
Justin

I'd say it's a lot like wine. Different vintages are different
product, though the estate (domaine) and region (apellation) can have
some consistent characteristics.

I try to trust what the reputable retailers tell me on their websites.
YMMV.

http://chadao.blogspot.com has good oolong, green tea & puerh reviews
http://community.livejorunal.com/puerh_tea has puerh reviews, and the
occasional oolong
http://community.livejournal.com/teafreaks often has reviews of many
kinds of tea

if you're a fan of things like pipe tobacco, cigars, scotch, cognac,
puerh might be a good bet for you. what tea do you normally drink?

servers have been iffy all day today, so I haven't been able to get
through to it.
