This is a popular shopping culture in Taiwan. Friends and family approach producers to get a bulk order discount. Since there is no middleman, the price is very good for the shoppers. For the tea maker, no increase in workload on logistic and they can concentrate on tea making.
We offer 2 group shopping event each year, during spring(April) and winter(November) harvest seasons. These are the 2 best harvest for Oolong Tea. We collect orders from our Pre-order group members before placing the bulk order to the tea farm in Taiwan. The tea is always freshly picked and handcrafted when we place the bulk order. It is usually 3 weeks since the tea was picked from the tree when it arrives in your hands in a vacuum package.
