TeaHabitat has occasional sales on her website. I’ve not seen any sales offered by HY Chen or LazyCat. twt_reddit maybe we can rename this topic to Black Friday sales by Vendor or sim. to include other vendors as well.
HY Chen since famous?

He sells Dongding style oolong. He himself is not really famous, just one of the few Western accessible teas in that quality.

His grandfather was famous in Taiwan for his Dongding, still some of the most sought after aged Oolongs in the whole country. According to some, his grandson is not up to his level yet ;)

What tea do he sell
he sells dongding from his farm and also other kinds of TW tea from other places.

i think most of us know about him due to @KyaraZen's introduction.

chen's website: http://2088taiwan.com/

note that he has an arrangement to sell via https://leafygreentea.com/ to the west (or maybe just the US)

Black Friday is an US thing, explains why HY Chen and lazy cat do not have one...

I doubt many people in Taiwan are even aware there is such a thing, haha calling it Black Friday alone is probably enough to make it unpopular due to superstitions...
Only Singapore Malaysia and hongkong have black Friday sale which I doubt Taiwan people know it.

FWIW, Yunomi has already posted what appear to be their "black friday" specials. Not spectacular, but worth a look.

Teavivre did black friday last year. They're currently running a pre-black friday sale, which appears pretty underwhelming.

Yunnan sourcing is currently (not really BF, but worth mentioning) offering 15% off all puerh.

Mattcha wrote a blog-post, It’s All about the Pre-Sale: White2tea’s Big Pre Black Friday Puerh Release, about all these pre-BF sales..
Seems I won't have any budget left the day of :shock:

Tea Encounter just joined the fray with up to 20% till the end of Nov, those should be decent candidates for ageing..
Starting to get hot here :shock:

their ZSL cakes are pretty much budget "old tree" puer from the broader Yiwu area.
for the price they are mostly ok, which for me means they are candidates for aging (Yiwu is considered to age well).
those prices might give you the impression you can maybe find "finds", but I didn't manage that..
but they are mostly priced accordingly to market standards, at least from what I could tell..

their semi aged Nannuo are very cute, but short lived

I haven't had the chance to try their new house brand puers..

Black Friday deal at Rishi Tea is 20% off with coupon code THANKS20 through 12/2/19.

Does not apply to the Fellow Corvo EKG - darn.
