Nice summary. It's a great little series (as are most of his podcasts).

Excellent work abcdefg, as usual. This has prompted me to listen to the podcast, so have signed up at CHP and downloaded Part one. Will let you know how I get on.

You're welcome Oyangjun and Shelley.

 

Shelly, if you have limited time and aren't too interested in the very earliest stages, you might find that parts 6 and 7, which discuss the "discovery" of Chinese tea by the West, give you more bang for the buck.

 

In any case, don't be worried about just listening casually and sort of fast the first time through to find the parts that you like best and then hearing those a second time. He supplies lots and lots of information. It can be a bit overwhelming when much of it is new data. Not as difficult when it's a review.

I intend to start with number one and work my way through all 10. If I have to listen to each one a few times to understand fully then that's not difficult.

 

I have put it on my phone and can listen while doing other things.

Good plan, working your way through the whole series. I'm confident you will find a lot to enjoy.
