Hi Tea Friends! It's been a long time since I've popped up in this space! I hope you're all doing well :)
As many of you know, I've been collecting puer tea for two decades. I really love puer but to be honest I don't drink it very often. For me it's more of a social beverage. These days I drink a lot more black tea and oolong and I've come to realize I have way more puer tea than I'll ever actually need.
I will always adore high quality loose leaf tea, but the main passions in my life these last 5 years have been music (especially the mighty UKULELE!) and helping my brilliant wife Alanna Peterson promote her amazing YA eco-thriller series, the Call of the Crow Quartet. Alanna and I are currently raising money to produce an audiobook of When We Vanished (book one of her Quartet). We need to raise about $3000 to do that project right.
My goal with this blog post is to sell some of my puer collection to help finance the audiobook. I have lots of great aged sheng puer that I'm willing to sell. All the prices below are negotiable.
How was the tea stored?
All of my puer tea is stored together on four shelves in the corner of my office in Seattle, Washington, USA. A curtain is hung over the front to block out light. Most cakes are wrapped in their original paper. Some cakes are broken up into tins or ceramic jars.
How will sales be handled?
Please email me to get the ball rolling [ blackdragontea [at] gmail [dot] com ]. I'm happy to answer any specific questions you have. You can pay with PayPal or Venmo (or cash if you're local and we can manage to get together). Then, I'll ship or deliver your tea ASAP.
