An Attempt to Look atPu’eh Price Over Time. & A Look at 7542s Over ~20 Years

Recently, a new site called Sinensis Research posted an article titled Is Pu’er a Good Investment?. It’s an interesting project looking at the price per weight of tea being sold by a number of vendors. The goal is essentially an attempt to figure out if pu’erh goes up in price over time. A couple years ago, Peter Lista looked at a similar topic in age and pu’erh prices, specifically focusing on teas sold by Yunnan Sourcing and White2Tea.

2007 Bulang.. Lao Banzhang.. Fake, Sketchy Ripe? Pu’erh [Inbetweenisode 213]

This episode I drink a free (!!!!) ripe pu’erh acquired locally from a Buy Nothing facebook group (a group used to exchange locally). The tea has many marketing keywords included, most of which are inaccurate.

Tea Home Dongding (Legend of) & My Experience Drinking TW Oolongs [Inbetweenisode 211]

This episode I bring on a decent, very reasonably priced Taiwanese oolong from Nantou-based vendor Tea Home. The tea is a mid-fired Dongding and is sweet, slightly nutty, and well-balanced. This video is also a bit of an oddity as one of the very few TW oolongs featured on an inbetweenisode. A good example of something I drink regularly.
