First of all I would like to say I am enjoying the Shu over the Sheng. I am having a pot of this after the Yiwu 2004 and I prefer it. The aroma. The flavor. Even the color of the liquor. The mouthfeel. I will be doing another Sheng tomorrow probably followed by a Shu. At least I am finding what I like. I love the depth and the complexity this fine tea offers.

Sheng is a lot less consistent from tea to tea. The spectrum of potential flavors is a absolutely vast. Shu is a lot more predictable — still highly complex, but there’s less “oh man what am I about to taste?” with a shu.

Jim I know you already suggested Camellia Sinensis for fine Puerhs, do you know about Jas e Tea, Generation or Puerh Shop ?

My list currently includes:

TeaG
Upton
Camellia Sinensis
Red Blossom
Seven Cups

and I’m looking forward to trying Verdant, soon. Sadly, new teas have to wait until well after The Holiday Season.

dont overlook the tao of tea (they have great sheng and shou), life in a teacup, and yes…def. try Verdant

All added to my bookmarks.

Once the weather turns cold here again, in Houston, my thoughts will return to pu-erh. Sadly, that’s really only late December through late February.
