I like the somewhat sweet taste of high mountain green tea, but it's not the most legendary green tea of taiwan. There's another kind which literally tastes like honey which I have not been able to find for a long time.

I might try this 'pu erh' tea you mention. I had a brick of it as a gift a while ago though but I think I stored it improperly.

I was also introduced to the wonder that is Chinese tea by Mixjourneyman, must have tasted 100 different varieties of oolongs together, these days I tend to drink Taiwanese high mountain oolongs (Chilai) or Fenghuang Dancong from Guangdong. Very intricate flavour which actually changes as you drink it!

普洱茶 pu-erh chá. My wife gets it from one of her colleagues who grows it.
珠茶 Zhū chá, aka pearl tea or gunpowder tea
玄米茶 Genmai cha, brown rice tea

There are a lot of others I drink, but those are the main 3

Good Pu-erh, IMO, comes in a solid chunk, a brick or a ball. You have to break bits off and put it in hot water

Another tea, if you are looking for a smokey flavor is Lapsang souchong. I'm not a fan but I have known a few who are. Also many of the Southern Chinese I know like Jasmine tea, again I am not a fan of it. I do like Tieguanyin, that is a good tea

Just to add to what SCMT said, Lapsang Souchong is a very nice black tea, if you are buying from Chinese vendors it is called Zhengshan Xiaozhong (not sure how the name turned into Lapsang in translation!).

Could it be a dialect thing? I believe it might originate from Fujian province, and virtually no one in China understands fujian :)
