Casting around I found the following News Item from October 13
Autumn Tie Guan Yin: Update (13/10/2010 @ 08:00:50)
An update for the Tie Guan Yin lovers out there. Wan Ling's Mum and sister are now in inner AnXi. Wan Ling's sister has already send some samples back for us to try. Looking promising.
For those that don't know, Wan Ling's mum works picking the teas during the morning and in the afternoon/evenings removes stalks and sorts the leaves from the previous days harvest.
Not sure when we'll get the teas to the UK. All being well sometime around the beginning of November. Remember members of our mailing list get advanced notice and the chance to buy before everyone else. Are you signed up? Join the Wan Ling Tea House mailing list today.
Well the beginning of November is still PDQ
I will have to wait and see when it is really available for order
