Awaiting the 2012 New Tea

It’s early March and we are suddenly just a few short weeks away from receiving our first deliveries of new tea. New tea from Darjeeling, India and China, to be specific. In this period of high expectation we are emailing our contacts about the teas that we want/need, awaiting samples, and generally fine-tuning the details of the upcoming new season.

Last year we had first of the season pre-Qing Ming Longjing teas tea in our store before the cut-off-date for seasonal teas bearing that designation, which is April 5th. It’s a bit of a wait-and-see game right now, hoping that the weather keeps to a steady course and that strikes do not erupt again this year in the Darjeeling region of India.

More information will be posted as we have news to share.

Meanwhile, our Korean Jungjak green tea is still on sale and it is nearly sold out.

Also, be sure to try our 2011 winter gao shans and the 2011 winter Fenghuang Dan Cong Yulan ( magnolia fragrance) oolong. This dan cong may be the most aromatic tea that I have ever tasted; it is quite stupendous, and something with a fresh, floral fragrance to drink while awaiting spring.
