It usually takes 3 or max 4 weeks to get the things that I order. If it takes this long like now it means the parcel is probably lost. Though I'll wait another week before complaining. From Awazon it took less than 2 weeks via air. The fastest shipping was 5 days when I bought shincha from Zencha. I don't even understand how they did that with the cheapest shipping. That meant the tea was in the country after 3 days.kuánglóng wrote: Sorry to hear about that but it happens here too once in a while. As long as you get your stuffed shipped by airmail it usually doesn't take that long to Europe though.
Sometimes I wonder how cheap some teas are if Berylleb is considered expensive. For me Berylleb/DTH is the cheapest solution if I buy small quantity. I compared YS to Berylleb and it seems cake/brick prices are almost the same. Though there are exceptions, for example (randomly picked tea) 2010 Dayi 8592 costs 30 USD on Berylleb and 36 USD on YS (shipping included). But there's no sample for this tea on YS. Another one: 2006 Dayi 7752 costs 64$ on B and 77$ on YS. I know prices mean nothing if the storage conditions aren't the same.
Of course this is the case only for similar teas. Since the selections aren't the same there's no point stopping at only one store.
