Anyone tried tea from this vendor? I found out about them from TeaDB on youtube, they invited these guys over for a couple of pu sessions. They seem really nice and passionate about tea.

Well there about page only says.
"We are based in the Seattle area and are deeply passionate about Puerh tea and GongFu style brewing."
Nothing interesting for me at least.

Glen and Lamu are going on their first sourcing trip sometime later this month. Their selection until then is pretty basic (and primarily ripe).

Both were extremely nice and passionate. Excited and curious to see what they might come back with.

Um ok but they said they said they just started drinking Puerh this summer in there interview. Maybe a little premature to start a company?

A reasonable point and from our conversations with them, their focus thus far has primarily been on converting new tea drinkers. That being said, I was impressed with how quickly and deeply they had poured themselves into tea.
