Is Chinese oolong tea loved by people in North America, Australia or Europe now?

We have very good source of Chinese oolong tea such as Tie Guan Yin and phoenix Danchong tea. Until now, we only delt with them in domestic market as we thought it was sophisticate to prepare oolong tea and it had a very small market in the western world. But some of our regular oversea customers told us chinese oolong tea had now loved by more and more foreign people. Is it true?

Is Chinese oolong tea such as Tie Guan Yin loved by people in North America, Australia or Europe? If it is, we will consider to include them onto our list of tea availabe for oversea door to door wholesale service this year.

Thanks for your help.

Are you in China? I suggest you to consider attending World Tea Expo (www.worldteaexpo.com), an annual event in Las Vegas. We currently buy tea directly from tea manufacturers and don’t deal with wholesalers. But I know some Chinese tea wholesalers obtained very good business opportunities through WTE. I write for a few Chinese tea magazines, and wrote an article a few months ago to analyze potential impacts of World Tea Expo to Chinese tea professionals. I personally met the Chinese contact person of WTE in Beijing. He is very nice. If you are interested, I can forward you his contact information. Or maybe you can find it somewhere on WTE website too.
