Herb_Master I am very interested in hearing how those TGY are. If they are even pretty decent I think I will have to order a couple tins
I love how the tea comes in individual packages. How much tea is in each one of those little pouches?
Also, are they like most other tea vendors on ebay? Will they do business direct?
I did not enquire about direct custom, I am happy to let Ebay / Paypal act on my behalf.
They are however a Hong Based Tea Wholesaler, so may be open to direct business but I don't know what quantities they would deal in. On Ebay they sell in as small a sample as 5-7gm for $1.50. Off Ebay you may find they have a larger range of products.
Shippment will be made within 24 hours after the payment(sometimes delayed,post office close for holiday) and takes about 7-15 days long with Hongkong EMS. Only ships to paypal verified address. Shippment could not be tracked on Hongkong post website,for i charges very low postage.(Actually if u want the shippment could be tracked with a track NO. ,contact me i will fix the postage fee for u.)
Payment and contact information
I accept verified paypal mostly,if u want to use moneybookers,contact me.

If you click on any Item in the Ebay listing to bring up the page for that item, you can scroll down to see differing info on the different items (though much is also duplicated)
Photos of the leaf, and shop, certificates of authenticity etc.
The heading for Supreme and Supreme+ ??says Summer Tea?? but the detail on the comparison leaf ??says
Tea of 2007 and 2008(the left one is before 2007 ,right is 2008 new spring tea,what i am selling now.)
Tea of lower quality and higher quality(the left one is lower quality, right is higher one,what i am selling)
She also includes brewing notes
Tea should be made with boiling water of 95°C+,
for Tie Guan Yin is half-Fermentation tea, not like green tea.
Drop the first water within 5 seconds,
then steeped in a cup or glass with cover for about 15 second.
Get the tea out for Enjoy.
Steep 8 times for A+ quality one, 5 for C+ quality.
Storage the tea in refrigerator to keep fresh.
It may be worthwhile asking her about that, possibly the ancilliary info on Ebay has not been updated since she was selling the Spring Tea.
