Does anyone know a good source with reasonable shipping for the type of paper used to wrap puerh cakes? I have several cakes that the wrapper is pretty badly torn and several others I got in shares that have no wrapper at all. Thanks.
Wymm Tea sells some. http://www.wymmtea.com/shop/mulberry-paper
You might also want. To check out art shops for unbleached mulberry paper.
I still could use some paper. I looked at Wymm, and $5 worth of paper costs $10 to ship. No thanks!
I bought $15 worth plus some cups, plus some tea. Made the shipping look reasonable, but now the paper cost over $50, though I think that’s in Canadian dollars.
I wouldn’t be surprised if White2Tea could sell you some if you happen to be putting in an order or are a member of their club. Since they make their own teas they must have sources of wrapping paper.
Don’t be afraid of their ship rates, they are cheaper than on the site
Last time I placed an order for CWS, I added paper and the estimated shipping cost jumped by more than $10, which scared me off. I was thinking of trying again, but am finding other vendors more compelling at the moment.
Try placing the order through email to them and checkout if maybe you get a more accurate and fairer rate.
The Wymm Tea paper appears to be for one paper, while the CWS is for a set of 10.
I quite like some of the nice wrappers, good idea to store the cakes in plain paper will keep the wrappers nice for framing
If you want paper, I have no problem sending some for the cost of shipping (less than $5). Paper only costs a couple of cents per sheet, but some are definitely more durable that others. I picked a few based on that and usually use those to rewrap cakes with weak paper.
