Re: Vendor review: Riyang Teayard

I am going to post more details about most of their teas in bits as I find time for it! Disclosure: The design and packaging is done by my studio, but I have no affiliation or other benefit from writing this review!

Re: China / Taiwan Trip - Favorite vendors?

My wife and I love the Wuyi rock and Dancong teas from Cindy ( https://www.wuyiorigin.com/ ). She also has Lapsang Souchong tea. :D Just one problem: in that case you would not need to buy from the above thread opener, you can just buy directly isn’t it? Without an increase in price due to resale. ...
