Thank you! I feel I know very little about very little, but I'm working on it. I see no point in selling substandard tea--I'd rather sell a more curated selection of the good stuff that is a taste of old Hong Kong. This is a city where history is often wiped out with very little forethought, but much of the good tea is (miraculously) still around!daidokorocha wrote:I like how all your teas are able to be featured products at the moment.
All I have to say is WOW Congratulations. I feel like you really earned this with all the work you've put in finding great teas and really getting to know tea. I always get the impression that a lot of vendors do not know tea that well and probably aren't delivering you something special. I think I would feel safe in your hands, jay. I'm glad those oolongs are still around because I still want to try them. Best of luck on the venture!
It will be interesting to see what you decide to expand into and what you don't expand into. Something tells me you'll probably keep it in line with your tastes and knowledge base in order to source nothing but quality tea you are confident in.
You're right that I'll continue to focus on what I like and what I know. I'd really like to keep the focus on HK. I also see no point in competing with Mainland vendors on tea they can source more easily and economically than I can! I might offer small amounts of special teas I acquire on my travels, however, so people can enjoy some of the teas I've purchased for myself (but only if I feel they're worthy when I get home). I bought some great loose teas in Yunnan last month and I'm hoping to find some good tea in Fujian later this month!
