We have new tea on the way.
We are also re-stocking the Wild Tree Purple Tea because 1) it's amazing, and 2) we didn't get enough the last time we ordered. If you haven't tried this purple tea, and you like the occasional cup of black tea, this tea will blow your standards for how delicious a black/Assam-type tea can be.
For those of you who are fans of our Imperial Grade Jasmine Pearls and the Jasmine Silver Needle, be stoked because we have a big re-supply coming next week. Fresh batches of fresh jasmine green and white tea!

For those of you who are like us, and enjoy trying new teas, we are excited to order three new tea: a white, a green, and a Phoenix oolong.
The white tea is a high-elevation white that is oxidized almost to the point of green tea, with notes of sugarcane and grasses. It was picked in March, so it will be extremely fresh.
The green tea is also just picked and comes from a famous tea region that became well known during the Qing Dynasty for this tea. It was famously the favorite of Empress Dowager Cixi, and also presented to American officials in the 70's when China and the USA were making efforts to improve diplomatic relations. We're excited to have a green tea that reflects the beauty of Spring and is thick, but not bitter, sweet and fragrant.
The most exciting tea in this order is the 'Duck Shit' Dan Cong oolong, which gets it's humorous name from tales of specially enriched soil from the ducks of the region. This is a Phoenix oolong of the famous Dan Cong region in Guandong Province. This tea is picked from younger plants of the rare Duck Shit varietal which makes it a more affordable and attainable Duck Shit oolong, which is typically wildly pricey. We are lucky to have a 2021 Spring pick of this amazing tea. It is said to have notes and qualities of highly aromatic aromas/flavors with flower, honey and longan (sweet, caramel, date-like fruit) notes. It will surely be a special tea you can enjoy for its uniqueness and rarity.
We are excited for the tea to arrive and we will post as soon as it is available in the store.
We will also put out a promotion for many of our other teas when we put those out for sale.
