Just when I was half way through another unnerving dispute and AE had to intervene I received this email from a vendor I bought some tea from a while ago (name removed).
Hello, my dear friend,
We are writing to tell you that according to the new policy of Aliexpress in 2017, "Tea" is not allowed to be sold or purchased on the Aliexpress website from January, 2017.
If needed, please order enough tea before the end of 2016. In the future, we will do the business on other platforms, please pay attention to our email later. Hope to see you again on the new websites. Thank you for your always support to us! /:000
I haven't bought much tea on AE but maybe that might be of interest for some folks. However, I wouldn't want to see the same thing happen on eBay anytime soon, who knows ...

Someone posted about it on Reddit too. Seems like it will happen, but there will be other ways to get tea from the existing vendors.Psyck wrote:Most likely that message was just a marketing strategy by that vendor
