Good afternoon tea folks.
I figured since I made my way to this place I would drop some recommendations on places to find good quality tea in the pacific north west.
Online shopping can be dubious no doubt, but if you happen to get a chance to pop into these places it's worth a conversation. Especially if you can speak with David H. in CA.
The owner of this company travels regularly to Taiwan and has lived there for a good period of time learning about the tea industry. I was pleased to chat often with him at the store he has in Eugene OR, the tea is great quality and good prices. The owner is honest, and respectable. I recommend the source, here is a link, https://jteainternational.com/
There is also one of the OG's of Tea importing living in Lagunitas CA, you can visit his place on saturdays for a free tea session to try everything from green to puerh. David has been particularly careful and discriminating with his collection as he has traveled to many countries, which his documentary accounts for. This man is undoubtedly trustworthy. I highly recommend purchasing tea from his collection. here is a link http://www.thephoenixcollection.com/
