Hi,

I thought it would be fun to hear which YQH tea is your favorite in relation to price (and why)?

I have only tried a few but i like the Qizhong a lot in relation to cost. Mainly because of its qi and darker notes.

I just discovered YQH and asked for prices on a couple of cakes. Waiting to hear back.

I can't believe how much is out there with respect to Pu'er; I never knew much about it until recently (turned off years ago after having a bad sample from a bad, local vendor). Because you have not just current year's tea, like with most other teas (in particular green), but year after year of tea to explore, there is not enough time to taste all I want. My other teas are getting neglected!

Yeah when I started with raw puerh those teas just took over my main consumption of tea :).

Which of the YQH teas are you most interested in?

I like the Lingya aswell, I would have bought more of it (I only have the one cake) but it sold out just before this months group order was announced.

A great bargain tea is the 07 Jincha. Its pretty compressed which can be challenging but wonderful tea at $95 for a 300g tuo. Another would be 2006 Qixiang at $305 for a 500g cake. It's a Six Famous Tea Mountain blend so sessions can vary a bit but it has wonderful qi and ranges from good to great for me. On the higher end of pricing the 2006 Chawangshu and 2004 Teji are both favorites. Of course, taste is personal. Qizhong is not a favorite, but I found Lingya a wonderful well balanced tea. It was a bargain while it lasted. Peace.
