I have scanned this vendor before. Interesting selection. However, I think some of his stock may be way over priced.

Yes, I would love to stop by the shop for a few free samples! :lol:

Like Hop says, it looks very promising but expensive. If they serve set ups in the store, it would be worth plunking down some money to taste a few, but I have trouble visualizing myself walking out the door with a whole cake at those prices ...

just thought i would ask if you guys have heard of any of their cakes they are selling. it also looks that they have their own house brand. the overall feeling i got from their site is pure snobbery. elitist. there is not enough info on their teas, no close ups of the cakes etc...., not very user friendly. no samples. they must be doing well, they have three stores in b.c. :shock:

Does the paper on this one look familiar to anyone? NANNUO BAI HAO "White Tips"
It almost seems like they renamed a pretty common cake. Or maybe they just saved money by getting the standard wrappers.

I think there are some standard CNNP wrappers that factories sometimes use to wrap their tea. Perhaps this is one of those. It does look awfully familiar. The fact that I never heard of it is not too telling, but the NANNUO BAI tea factory does not sound too big. Maybe they couldn't afford to print their own wrappers.



Of course, the term Bai Hao is used to describe several teas including the Formosa oolong Oriental Beauty and the white tea Silver Needle (Bai Hao Yin Zhen). But you doubtless already know that.
