Almost missed limited edition shincha and thus i could get only little bit of it, Yame 88 nights is available for pre-order. It should be available for shipping around 8-9 may.

This year i'm starting to move on my own and this allows me for better price/quality ratio. Tea choice will be different this year. Currently list of available teas is rather short, but i think quality got better. Especially with matcha, Yame Seiju koicha matcha is noticeably better than Seiho. After i add several more Yame teas i plan on focusing on Ureshino and Nagasaki teas. Steamed and pan fired tamaryokucha.

Reworked point system, now it's basically a 10% discount for regular customers. Can use everything on next order, not necessary to have enough to cover point cost of tea or teaware.

Has anyone heard from or ordered from Xell recently? I have been trying to contact him without success. Hopefully everything is OK.

Hello and thanks for worrying about me.

Was going through some major family problems, at least seems finally past most difficult time.

Will be working on big shop update in June. And for now launched spring sale for 2012 teas. Sencha Kiri is new and will replace Kikyou (from last OTTI i participated), flavor is similar, but Kiri is more higher grade.

Good to hear from you, Xell! Hopefully things will continue to improve.

The Kiri sounds very interesting since the Kikyou was very good! :mrgreen:

Yay, i'm finally home :)

by Xell » Jan 20th, '14, 08:54

Hello everyone, took much longer than expected, but i finally returned to tea and home! I was actually away from home for quite a while, most biggest problem was decent work. Now i'm more closer to my goal to get steady in rural area. Huge cities are suffocating, certainly not for me, so happy that i could finally return to quiet place.

Anyway, i updated my page and added first batch of tea!

Will be looking for more good tea from Kyushu and teaware after i'm done with registering company name, lots of paperwork is waiting us :)
