Other Online Vendors?

Postby bananarchysplit » Feb 12th, '08, 14:56

Is there a list of other online tea vendors. I am not necessarily looking to order. I don't know my wallet could handle it :? I do like to look as I find I learn alot just by browsing. Not to mention window shopping is fun sometimes :)

Last night I started working on one, as soon as I have it finished, I'll post a link here.

What do you think is better, sort by type, or alphabetical? I think alphabetical.

Are you putting it on wikiCHA? It might be nice to have a list there. No reviews or bias, just an alphabetical list. I have quite a few saved in my bookmarks. There is also an LJ post at communiTea that has a bunch, but that hasn't been updated in a while.

I'm too stupid to edit wikicha, but it'll be on my tea blog.

If the wikiCHA keepers allow it, I would be happy to do it.

It is very much just a rough draft and a work in progress, but its a start:

Pu-erh Live Journal Community has a handy list.

http://community.livejournal.com/puerh_tea/

It's on the right hand side, and down a little.


Obviously, this one is pu-erh oriented.

wikiCHA has a pretty nice list of vendors. It's under the Tea Culture column Tea on the Net, then to the bottom of the page Buying Tea Online for a nicely organized list of vendors, a few with annotations.

I didn't compile it, but honestly, it's the best single summary of online tea vendors so far ... and it will continue to get better as people fiddle with it

Here's a direct link to the wikiCHA page Salsero mentioned.

As of this posting, it really is just a list. I think the goal is for each one to have a wikiCHA entry, but we've got a lot of writing ahead of us! When I have some free time, I think I'll try to add direct links to the stores on that page too. We'll see.

I have a couple more to add at some point, but it's mostly complete.

ABx, hope you don't mind that I added a link in wikiCHA to your list. The annotations are fabulous -- as is everything you do!
