I recently ordered some tea and my very first tokoname teapot
I found nice vendors in Japan and the US and you realy have ngreat listings of vendors here on teachat.
The real problem is - the additional costs for an EU-import are huge. Shipping costs are high and what realy kills it is taxation!
So all in all the price is nearly doubled.
So I searched for alternatives in Europe. BUT - found a lot (most of them in Germany) and the problem is they are
b)haven´t got a realy good selection.
Do you know good vendors in Europe?
To clarify - I am into Japanese and Chinese tea ware and Japanese green tea, Oolong, some white tea. Just try pu erh - didn't find my connection to it yet. And I am not interested in flavored teas and in black teas.
Of course I found Adagio-Europe. But in the moment their selection is small and not comparable to the international one. Is the European tea liking this different?
hope you know some good source
