Updates from China 2016 February 08 2016

We are in China for the next 4 months. We return to Seattle in June. We are excited to be back for the 2016 Spring harvest. We have a lot of good plans for this year and are eager to share them with you. We’ll keep this page updated with the latest information on where we are and what we’re doing. 

We're down in Xishuangbanna

We're out at the tea mountains in southern Yunnan for the rest of April. We'll be unable to fulfill shipping of products we have stored in China until then. This is indicated by items that have 'FREE SHIPPING'. You can still place an order now and it will be shipped when we return to Kunming. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please follow us on social media to see where we are and what we're up to. 

New Products!

We have started added new products to our inventory. These are unique items we've found during our travels in Yunnan. We hope you enjoy them! Check out our new products here!

Shipping from China Currently Available

Chinese New Year is over and all shipping services from China have resumed.

Orders from our US inventory

If you order from our online store these orders will be fulfilled from our stock of product in the US.

Samples are currently unavailable

We generally pack samples each week to keep them fresh. When we are away from the US we can’t do that. We apologize for the inconvenience. When we find new teas here in China we’ll try to get samples made available. The exception is our "What is Puerh? Three Tea Educational Tasting Set".

Getting a hold of us

China has irregular and limited internet. Many of the places we’ll be in Yunnan are quite remote and getting a reliable connection is often not possible. If you need to get a hold of us email is the best way: crimsonlotustea@gmail.com . We will reply as soon as possible.

Follow us on social media

We are very active on social media. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We post often and give a glimpse into the life of rural China.
