Clicking Mouse, Mailing Dragon

I’ve finally decided to get my feet wet and jump into the world of on-line tea buying.

I just felt it was time to cast the net a bit wider, beyond what was on offer in the local shops.

In order to keep waiting times to a minimum, I was looking for a dealer based here in Sweden, but first and foremost they had to have an interesting selection of teas on offer.

I also think it’s important as part of your tea education to get as much information as possible about any tea you purchase or are thinking of purchasing. Type of pluck, season, elevation, cultivar – all (and more!) play such an important role in the taste of the finished tea, and I was hoping that I would be able to find a dealer who was willing to share this kind of information with their customers.

I think I might have found a dealer that can deliver, in all senses of the word.

House of Tea are based just outside Stockholm, and seem to tick all the boxes I’m interested in.

My initial “trial” purchase has been a small amount of Bu Lang sheng Pu-erh, and an similarly sized sample of Qi Lan, a Wuyishan Oolong.

With any luck I should get the tea in the middle of next week.

This hopefully will be the start of a beautiful relationship…
