We directly connect with top-notch tea producers so that no middleman is involved, thanks to Vincent's networks.
We stay open-minded to trying all kinds of tea varieties and learning new things about them to expand our knowledge.
Every tea we feature in our club is carefully selected from multiple different options and grades.
Conveniently share tasting notes with other club members and read others' opinions and brewing methods.
We host Zoom tea tasting events where you can meet and discuss with other members while sipping the same tea.
During late April and early May, our curator Vincent spent 10 days in southern Fujian, watching tea-processing competitions, visiting tea mountains, and sourcing premium tea and teawares. Therefore, we came up with this edition of our tea club, bringing to you four rare oolong teas.
These distinctive oolong teas are from diverse regions – Anxi, Yongchun, Zhangping, and Pinghe – each a testament to the artistry of experienced tea masters and our meticulous selection process.
Upcoming theme: TBD. Registration will open on 12AM PDT, December 16th, 2023.
Future themes: Sheng Puerh, Chenpi & Tea, Hainan Tea, a variety of black teas, Taiwanese Tea, Japanese Tea...

Reviews from our global tea community
"The MyTeaPal Club is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. It is the only tea club that fully integrates your monthly teas with an app and community. This makes it SO easy to brew and log your teas as you try them and share notes with all your friends, as well as make new ones! Plus, the teas are top notch and often include very unique or hard to source varieties."
"Enjoying the tea boxes alongside having an app to record all your tasting notes and discuss among the communiTEA makes MyTeaPal Club my favorite tea club. Vincent’s enthusiasm for sharing tea and tea culture is really impressive, and he has been working on this project with a hugeee effort that encourages me a lot on my tea journey. All the teas from the club are carefully sourced and amazingly unique."
“We have been enjoying Gong Fu Cha for about 20 years. Often the tea we purchased from "western facing vendors" was either disappointing or boring. The teas Vincent has selected for the club have been consistently excellent. Combined with the MyTeaPal App, the videos, the tastings and the knowledgeable international membership I could not be more pleased.“
"Being able to enjoy tea with tea friends online and sharing our personal experiences makes MyTeaPal Club the most unique club boxes that I’ve ever tried. The integration of the MyTeaPal App gives me the opportunity to share my notes and pictures, plus the added new feature of connecting with other club members is just amazing. I’m already curious which teas Vincent got for the next few months."
"After I started using the MyTeaPal app, I realized I actually stepped into an amazing community of like-minded and kind-hearted souls who meet from around the world weekly and share their love for tea. Within the MyTeaPal Club, not only are the teas fresh and directly sourced from MyTeaPal creator Vincent's recent travels, but they are also curated with an interesting and educational focus that keeps us excited to taste and learn more! Its been such a great community and experience!"
"I have learned so much about Chinese teas since joining the MyTeaPal Club.
Region by region the subscription allows me to explore the teas together with a great community of TeaPals from all over the world. I very much look forward to continuing that journey."
"MyTeaPal was an instant Gong Fu Cha game-changer for me! Being new to Chinese teas, I wanted to find a resource for expert advice on which teas to drink and a group of people with whom I could share my tea journey. With a curator like Vincent and regular virtual tea sessions with other members from around the world, I found both and much more with MyTeaPal! From a cost/benefit perspective, the club has far exceeded my expectations and I give it my highest recommendation."
