Other Online Vendors?

by bananarchysplit » Feb 12th 08 7:56 pm

Is there a list of other online tea vendors. I am not necessarily looking to order. I don't know my wallet could handle it :? I do like to look as I find I learn alot just by browsing. Not to mention window shopping is fun sometimes :)

Last night I started working on one, as soon as I have it finished, I'll post a link here.

What do you think is better, sort by type, or alphabetical? I think alphabetical.

Are you putting it on wikiCHA? It might be nice to have a list there. No reviews or bias, just an alphabetical list. I have quite a few saved in my bookmarks. There is also an LJ post at communiTea that has a bunch, but that hasn't been updated in a while.

I'm too stupid to edit wikicha, but it'll be on my tea blog.

If the wikiCHA keepers allow it, I would be happy to do it.

It is very much just a rough draft and a work in progress, but its a start:

Pu-erh Live Journal Community has a handy list.

http://community.livejournal.com/puerh_tea/

It's on the right hand side, and down a little.


Obviously, this one is pu-erh oriented.

wikiCHA has a pretty nice list of vendors. It's under the Tea Culture column Tea on the Net, then to the bottom of the page Buying Tea Online for a nicely organized list of vendors, a few with annotations.

I didn't compile it, but honestly, it's the best single summary of online tea vendors so far ... and it will continue to get better as people fiddle with it

alphabetical otherwise there'd be duplicates

Here's a direct link to the wikiCHA page Salsero mentioned.

As of this posting, it really is just a list. I think the goal is for each one to have a wikiCHA entry, but we've got a lot of writing ahead of us! When I have some free time, I think I'll try to add direct links to the stores on that page too. We'll see.

You can see my list here:

I have a couple more to add at some point, but it's mostly complete.

ABx, hope you don't mind that I added a link in wikiCHA to your list. The annotations are fabulous -- as is everything you do!
