Zhong Guo Cha

September 12, 2007 at 9:18 am | Posted in Tea Stores | 1 Comment

ZGC is mostly for wholesale/b2b, so their website is not yet complete, Phil Parda (owner) says its about 1/3 of the stuff they have.

They have a distribution center in the USA-east coast (CT), so delivery times should be good (i got <24hours to NYC).

Selection is large, mostly Chinese teas, as well as accessories, Yixing teapots and gaiwans (email questions if you cant find something on the website.). Prices are varied (i think on the high side).

Communication was not a problem, very quick responses (<2hours).

Packaging:

Teas are in plastic bags with some sort of lining, they’re heat sealed airtight. Some (less fragile) are vacuum packed.

Pottery had its own boxes, nothing was broken.

They send along free samples, but quantity is small, 1-2 infusion sized.

  1. I highly recommend Zhong Guo Cha. Phil is extremely knowlegeable about tea. I have attended his STI classes (Specialty Tea Institute)and have found them excellent. He also offers tours to China, behind the scenes. One day soon I will join him and see the tea gardens of China for myself.
