$100 per pound is only 6.20 per ounce. I have rather enjoyed their baozhong at $98 a pound, $6 an ounce. I'd actually be very surprised if you could find a bazhong better than this at this price (at least in the US).

Why get rid of it if you like it? Also, if you spent over $100 on it I'd assume its at least OK –unless its stale. Local tea shops in general have a staleness problem.

I won't say it's "stale". The tea is actually not too bad, but like i mentioned i am a newby when it comes to green tea and that is why i was asking the veterans on their opinions.

I was actually being comical when i said i was going to send it too some good friends and please excuse my not so comical jokes.:)

About my question, i really had mainly negative responses and i appreciate the feedback. I should of asked prior to purchasing the green tea and obviously that makes the most sense. Just real glad it wasn't a very expensive mistake.

I am going to purchase what the forum moderator mentioned and keep researching this site.

Again, i do appreciate the feedback and hope to have a cup of tea with u all!!

I seriously doubt that you will find any of those better than to $100 per ounce ones from ten tea. Maybe better than Ten Tea's almost certainly stale $30 per ounce ones.
