Life in a Teacup?

by zhuangtea » Oct 20th 18 12:26 am

I’m looking for some very good quality and fresh Long Jing this year. I’ve heard the name being tossed around but their website never seems updated. I went there today to see a bunch of new harvest green teas, but no option to buy any of the long jings. Also, all the oolongs that I was interested in (Phoenix dancongs, Wuyi, Tieguanyin) are from many years ago. Anyone know if they’re still active? Are the green teas any good?

I haven't ordered from them in a couple of years but their greens are excellent. Absolutely among the best. Well curated, excellent quality, and sometimes they find gems I'd never think to look for. I don't have as much cash to drop on non-wuyi tea as I once did or I'd order from them more often.

Ya, they are still around, but the long jing sells out pretty quick. You have to stay on top of it and pre order before they even get it. This year I got some from them, seven cups, and postcard teas. I cant decide which is best, and the other 2 are still in stock.

look around on their website for the mailing list. if not, send them a message and ask to be added so you don't miss out on the pre-order.
