Hello all. Piggybacking off of @Atlas and the TB buy, we also have a Taiwan Group buy planned. Slightly different format, but same general concept.

Details can be found here:

I see you are into a 3rd round with pu’erh group buys, very nice. These collective lotteries segue really nicely with your posts at your Dead Leaves Club blog. So good to see you are translating text for western readers. You could also post about your blog, with updates as you share new material, at Media/Blogs.

Thanks, Victoria!

I'll post up now.

As an aside, the GB3 rerun may have one free slot (60USD) if anyone's interested.

Atlas - how much tea in total (in g) gets every participant in the GB3?

The current (and probably final) lineup is as follows:

Yichanghao 2004 Laochen's Teapot Jinzhushan 10g per person
Yichanghao 2005 Gedeng Zhenpin 400g
Yichanghao 2005 Banzhang Fortune 400g
Changtaihao 2005 Laochen de Cha Bulang 400g
Nanqiao 2005 Purple Peacock 357g
Yexiangwang 2007 Naka 357g
(Ostensibly) 6FTM 2003 Green-mark 7542 357g

All but the last are vetted teas. The last is a gamble from a (thus-far) good vendor. There are 10 participants, so each can expect 1/11th of each production except the Jinzhushan.

At the moment I think we're full-up, but one of the initial participants is someone I've never spoken to and there's a chance they may ghost on me, so if you're interested, flick me a message and I'll get in touch if they fall through.

Cheers - Alex
