I have recently finished off my first tea order from Ethan, and while I have too much tea at home at the moment to order any more from anyone, I can say that was some very fine tea, and I'd order if there was room in the tea chest!

Sampling and testing the new winter teas. So far it is quite pleasing, though I now think final judgments should be made after teas settle (several weeks more).

Early impressions: Very lightly oxidized oolong; from 1600 to 1800m up Shanlanxi that I call Perfect, remains true to its name and seems even a bit better (which may be normal Spring/Winter comparison); dayuling is definitely better and seems fussy about preparation (but I am traveling without my normal setup). High mountain black that I have called Sinensis seems closer to the best blacks; Championship Black seems the same. New: A medium-oxidixed oolong that is bug bitten (and not roasted) greatly pleases and excites me (I am sure of its excellence but worry that because I have not had anything like oriental beauty for a while that I am not subjective enough).

Anyway, I am now in CHiangmai. Thailand drinking expensive, excellent dayuling from Taiwan brewed in a typical hotel glass (and this time, it came out terrific but last night not as good). Cheers

Dear Members,

I spent weeks drinking samples before making purchases of significant amounts of teas; then as much time again drinking the teas that I had chosen. I am confident these are great: tasty, reliable, good value for $, etc. Until the 13th of April, not for sale to anyone but members here. You can PM for info etc. Basic information is:

From Taiwan:

Lightly oxidized gaoshan (Green or green oolong): PERFECT from Shanlanxi, 60 grams for $18; FOUSHOUSHAN, 60 grams for $60; & DAYULING, 40 grams for $40.

HIgh-mountain medium-roasted/medium oxidized oolong, 75 grams for $28.

High-mountain black tea, 75 grams for $28.

CHAMPIONSHIP BLACK, 75 grams for $45.

From Nepal: (Tea is from a few years ago. Still is fine. I send it in thick Kraft paper/foil zip-lock packs.) From Jun Chiyabari, Himalayan Orange (90% oxidized, usually considered a black tea). 20 cents per gram, 40-gram minimum.

Cheers, Ethan

Are the lightly oxidized oolongs you're selling from the recent winter harvest and do you have plans to stock 2019 spring harvest?

Teas that I have now are from the recent winter harvest. I will get some teas from the 2019 Spring harvest. I may not get both dayuling and foushoushan depending on how both taste and prices.
In case anyone would want to know, I am not selling the tea I have from Nepal & won't be. I will use the last of it myself and will only deal with tea from Taiwan.
