2011 Expected Tea Arrivals,                               3rd Update, 6/16/2011

Fire up your water kettles, tea enthusiasts !

Original Post ….April 4th, 2011……Our first shipments of 2011 Pre-Qing Ming green teas ( 1st of the season teas that are plucked before April 5th ) are in transit from China now. We expect that we will have new tea to sell by the end of the week of April 5th. Below is a partial listing of the green teas that we are expecting to arrive throughout the month of April.  Information about 2011 white, yellow, oolong, black and Pu-erh teas will be posted as orders of those teas and shipping dates are firmed up.

Update…. May 10th, 2011…..since the week of April 5th, we have been receiving shipments of tea ( from China and India ) nearly every day. Below is an amended list of teas that have arrived and tea that is still expected to arrive. Some changes have been noted concerning new expected arrival dates, and regarding a few teas that will not be arriving.

Update on June 16th…..most of the tea that we have air-shipped has arrived; new Tieguanyin, Da Hong Pao and Li Shan gao shan will be coming in soon. Korean spring greens will arrive in just a few weeks time – we are air-shipping them over once again ! 2nd Flush Darjeeling will be here by the end of June. Wonderful new Dan Cong red tea just arrived and will be on the website in about a week.
