This is where I’ve bought some senchas & Fukamushi tea. There prices are reasonable and the tea is very good.

It really is….I bought Sencha Superior and brewed shortsteeps==little to no bitterness.

I’ll keep it in mind if I decide to look for new tea vendors. I think the fewer the better is good in terms of saving money…

ScottTeaMan

I know…that’s what I think too. My next vendor will be Tao of Tea, because I want more Mei Li tea. Do you have any other recommendations from them?

Also, an order from Tea Vivre. My third would be Rishi, b/c I really love that Chai you sent me, but that would be my third choice. So much for saving $$$. :>//

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
