I don't see myself ending up anything like Scott with YSLLC or Jim with Puerhshop, but I see everyone that has tried his teas seem to enjoy them enough to buy them again.
We've been talking of doing something like 50 gram bags, since that seems to be a standard amount with most other vendors and is a nice amount to keep from losing freshness before you drink it all.
I'd just like to get everyones feedback on whether they would be interested in purchasing this tea in quantities beyond the 10g packets, before I actually make any kind of final decisions.
When I first read this, I was dismissive of the idea of 50 gram bags but now that I have been playing with my Tea Jar/Caddy/Canister collection a bit, I kind of like the idea a little bit more.
My main concern now that I am coming round to your way of thinking is that I was also new to the idea of storing my greener oolongs in the refrigerator. And 50 gram bags are a little harder to negotiate in my fridge space.
How does one make use of a display cabinet that one could point out to visitors, if any serious tea minded visitors should pass by - that did not feature any greener oolongs.
I have some tea jars that I thought might be too small to be practical holding little more than a couple of brews but maybe 3 or 4 when you consider the tightly rolled nature of TKY.
When breaking out a larger pack from the fridge distribute it into 2 or 3 small tea caddy jars on the display shelf.
