Hey all,

I'm looking to see if anyone has experience with teas from https://thechatong.com.

I couldn't find a thread about this shop so thought I'd open a new one.

They're offerings of puerh and oolongs are enticing, but I have a hard time believing some of their claims around gushu etc.

Either way, if the teas are good I might give the shop a try.

Sorry, can't vouch for the teas, but their macro shots of tea splashes bear pretty saliva inducing colors :D I'd be curious to know if the nice photography is accompanied by like wise teas too.

Yes, the macro shots of tea drops in action are great, as are the descriptions. Looks like they are out of UK, with most shipping from Taiwan. The ‘about me’ could be better, it’s pretty vague. The site is convincing enough though to make me curious.

The tea is from IG: cytea9
If you trust their tea it’s probably okay.
Photos/web/marketing I think are done by Marcin (lefu79) in UK

The offer looks interesting. One thing I wonder though is how they manage with their Yancha. You can’t import Yancha in commercially viable quantities into Taiwan, the people who sell it usually hand carry it into the country.
