Order your tea when it's fresh. Green tea, white tea, black tea and yellow tea re picked in spring, when you order in April/May you'll have the fresh tea. We'll write down in the details in which year and at what time the tea was harvested. Light oolongs and Dancong oolongs will be available at the start of May and Wuyi Oolongs around July. If you buy Puehr tea, then buy aged puerh teas or fresh puerh with suitable for drinking directly.
If you're not familiar with natural teas, then we suggest you to order a number of varieties first. However, when you have some favorites, then we suggest you to buy the amount for a whole year. If you're not a very heavy tea drinker, then around 250gram of tea of 2 or 3 teas will be enough for a whole year. If you order for at least 100usd, we can ship by express, which will be fast. Fresh tea is the best, therefore we recommend to order at least 100usd per time.
When you make a purchase on Teazaar, the tea will be shipped from the tea farm. Most of the tea shipments will go through our Xiamen or Hong Kong office, but big shipments will go directly to you. Wherever you are in the world.
Our shipping costs are 20usd (or equivalent in other currencies) per order. All flat rate. All products are shipped from tea growers in Asia, therefore we suggest you buy a number of teas or a slightly bigger volume per time.
Shipments can be traced and take between 5 to 15 days till they arrive. We will send you an invoice and the price will also be written on the package. If your country requires import fees or other taxes, then you're responsible for this.
Once shipped, we will send you an email or sms with the tracking code.
Zixi is a small county, part of Jiangxi's Fuzhou city. The mountains of the Wuyi mountain range the Dajue mountain and the Longhu mountains surround this small tea area. There is hardly any industry in the area, and there is no city nearby.
The altitude of this tea area is between 200 and 500 meters. The soil is fertile and loose, and forest surrounds the tea area. Perfect for natural tea growing.
The Little Tea Sister is called tea master Wu and all her life has been about tea. She grew up in Fujian in a tea area nearby Anxi. After she got married, they moved together to Zixi. They needed to move, because it was difficult to earn money in their home town. All they knew was tea, so they started with selling tea from other areas to the people in Zixi. When they got the opportunity, they started growing their own tea, the Baiye Nr. 1 variety in Zixi. Because of their love for tea, they never hunted the tea leaves, and now from Zixi's best green tea.
Because of the natural approach, they choose quality over quantity. This means, when you let the tea tree grow naturally, you can pick about 2 kg per mu, which is 30kg per hectare. Fortunately the management costs are not very high, but a tea this good with this small amount available, can't be cheap. This grade is the after Qingming grade, because the before Qingming grade has a total volume of only 10kg, and the price is double the after Qingming grade. The leaves are wonderful, the taste is very smooth and sweet, and makes you feel great. You can taste that this tea is from a natural area.
You can steep this tea in a big glass on 80 degrees Celsius, or with a Gaiwan. It really doesn't matter. The only advantage of the tea glass is, that you can appreciate the beauty of the white tea leaves. Don't use too many tea leaves, start with 2 gram for a glass and 3 gram with the Kungfu method. Gradually increase when you regard the taste as a bit too light. Store this tea in the fridge or other cool area.
