$39 for a 200g is a bit pricey for ripe though. You can get some pretty good full bings for that sort of money.
Yeah, that translates into $69 for a 357 beeng, and it’s a young ripe as well. Thing is, those 200 cakes are quite a bit smaller than 357 ones. A bit more than 3/4 smaller, since 357/200 = 1.785.
Tbh, that’s the main I’ve avoided W2T so far, I just don’t have the budget for it. At least the pricing is consistent though, I’ll give them that.
The question of price versus quantity is not straightforward. In my mind, the price/quantity is not as important as whether it delivers something special or unique. I have plenty of “daily drinkers” to last me most if not all of my life. What I want to know is whether a tea has something extra besides catchy marketing or hipster cred.. As you have noted time to time price and quality do not always align.
haha tea having hipster cred.. maybe one day! My sinologist professor didn’t know what puerh is.
