I blind purchased these two cakes from Wistaria and did not like it. I still have more than 300g left for each of them, but am willing to sell in an increment of 50g for those who wish to try it out. The price is what I paid for the tea. Domestic shipping is around $8 for up to 100g, and $15 for up to both cakes. Please DM me if interested!

$25 / 50g for Lan Yin (blue label)
$34 / 50g for Hong Yin (red label)

What is it that you don’t like in all 3 teas from Wistaria?

Hard to say. I guess these teas didn’t stand out to me. I keep reaching for Zi Pin and Tai He when I’m in the mood for Wistaria. I’m very much in it for the Qi.

As for the wangong tea, i bought it because I like fresh wangong (1-3 yo), so I wanted to try a more aged version for comparison. Fresh pu from 2020 is out and I need extra cash for the gaogan stuff :mrgreen:

That's an interesting statement. In the mood for Wistaria, for me would mean wanting to be in a teahouse drinking tea with people I like.

Certainly that would be a better way to enjoy tea! I'm hoping we can figure out an effective vaccine for COVID-19 soon!

Where do you go for tea house? I haven’t found any decent tea house in the Bay Area yet.

There are a few tea houses in the Bay Area where you can sit back and relax, but I usually just get together with a few friends at home (pre-COVID time).

Thanks. If you have the tea and setup, at home is probably the best location now :lol:

Agreed, I have at least a tong of each. The qi of Lanyin is very energizing, so I am a bit surprised

Just realized I've been selling these at loss because I got the conversion rate wrong and forgot to add shipping from Taiwan :oops:
Anyway, only a few portions left. But I'd need to update the price: Lan Yin -> $30 and Hong Yin -> $38. Wangong -> $60. Cheers!

These are not bad teas by any means. I'm saving a portion for personal enjoyment :)

Hong Yin & Lan Yin are gone. There's still Wangong left and I'm happy to do a smaller portion of 25g for $30 a pop.
