I have a Coffee/Tea shop near my house (Copper Canyon Coffee Roasters / Phoenix Tea Company) and went in several times over the past 3+ years and requested to be put on an email notification list for oolong tea 2 times during that period. I was never contacted and EVERY time I went in person and asked they never had oolong and always said it was difficult to get due to this or that reason from import issues to lost orders. Why is it so hard for them to get Oolong they used to have shelves full of green and flavored green teas but not once have I seen oolong, while the Travelers House Coffee and Tea place in town has always had it in stock?
I haven’t noticed an oolong shortage, but I’m not a huge oolong drinker. I’d try searching online for a different source.
That sounds like nonsense! They might not be ordering because they don’t get much call for it thus preferring not to keep it in stock. I order all my tea online and have yet to see oolong shortages anywhere.
Good to know, Guess I look elsewhere, I was hopeful because they were in walking distance.
