Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

Bok Any resources to learn about fake Puerh? I have been interested in learning more for the last year or two. So far the online conten...

Re: Tea Factory versus Private Production

Another survey if I may ;-) What makes you to buy TF labeled teas instead of small production teas? If other way around - what makes you to buy tea from small producers instead of tea factories ?

There are a few tea houses in the Bay Area where you can sit back and relax, but I usually just get together with a few friends at home (pre-COVID time).
@pantry
