Splitting 2015 Chinese Teas

I have been contacting tea farms looking for 2015 tea samples and got a response from a representative at a tea farm in China who is willing to send samples for a flat rate. However, the amount of tea in the samples is more than I want.

I’m not sure if all these teas are correctly translated but they are: wuyi rock tea, shuixian, rougui, dahongpao, qilan, beitou, huangguanyin, and queshe
I am actually going to pick the 7 teas… I’ll know within a few days what they are
Each package is 24g of tea and I’d like to split it three ways.

8g x 7 teas = $10 shipped US

There would be a wait time for shipping from China and I’m only ordering the one set so there is only space for two people besides me.

I’ll jump in on this. Thanks!

Awesome. They don’t have a website, so I will just have to forward all the information over to you. One of the teas I picked out is jinjunmei because I want to try some 2015 spring golden tea :)

Sounds good!

If no one else objects, I would join the tea party as well! But I would be willing to give up my spot for someone with a more cultured palate (since I’m so new that I haven’t really heard of these varieties!); if there is more interest, I am perfectly fine with bowing out!

No worries, I haven’t heard of the majority of them either but I am looking forward to trying them. The idea that I can email tea farms and get local fresh tea is quick awesome :)

Worst case of objection is you get nothing :P, however 4g x 7 teas isn’t a small amount if someone decides to split with you.

I will keep you posted.

This sounds great! I’ve been looking into the new harvests! You already have my email, so once you get the info hit me up :)

You get to have the pleasure of working something out with Equusfell :)

I’m only establishing my relationship with this tea farm as of right now so I’ll only have 24g of each tea- 16g of each tea which I’m willing to split with others so I can get more feedback and share.

hahahah oh didn’t realize the three way split xD It’s alright, I’ll pass this one up :)
