    Nice to come home from work and relax with a new video from you lads. Thanks! The tea you reviewed is their most expensive red. Is it worth the cost?

    • James says:

      Hey Peter, good question. I’d say the answer depends entirely on your level of interest/enjoyment in black teas. For me personally, I prefer to buy inexpensive but good quality (i.e. Yunnan Sourcing’s blacks) as I do not drink it much and have far more interest in oolongs and pu’erh. That being said, I know Denny likes to buy some more expensive blacks!

      I would say that this tea was good quality, notably better than the Qing Pin.

      Cheers,
      -James

        How do the Yezi reds compare to those from YS which are similarly priced?

        Thanks.

        • James says:

          Nearly every single black tea from Yezitea is in another price range than YS. I’d approximate Yezitea at $7-$14/oz., whereas YS most expensive tea is $6.25/oz. (JJM).

          In my opinion, Yunnan Sourcing is significantly better bang for the buck if you can put up with a long wait on shipping.

            YS has sales right now.
            If you can find the black tea you like on YS US web, it only take 2-5 days for shipping.
