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.
After our Sheng Puerh club in May, we're now introducing Shou/Ripe Puerh 熟普洱 (Shú Pǔ‘ěr) for the first time, a kind of dark tea from Yunnan province that's post-fermented.
Facing the market‘s large demand for fermented teas, the puerh Wo Dui (wet piling) process was invented between 1973 and 1975 to produce Shou Puerh by accelerating the natural but time-consuming aging process that could have taken Sheng puerh decades.
Shou Puerh has dark brown dry leaves and reddish-brown liquor color. It's known for being mellow, sweet, smooth, and deep, as well as having some potential health benefits.
Upcoming theme: Anxi Oolong. Registration will open on 12AM PDT, September 16th.
Future themes: Dark Tea, Dancong Oolong, Yunnan Black Tea, Yellow Tea, Taiwanese Oolong, Yunnan White Tea...
We featured 5 different types of teas naturally scented with 3 kinds of flowers: osmanthus, gardenia, and jasmine.
We featured 4 teas from Fuding, the origin and center of China's white tea production. Silver needle, white peony, shou mei, and aged shou mei.
We featured 3 teas from Tongmu village, 1 Gongfu black tea, and 2 black teas produced in Sichuan and Guizhou using Fujianese tea cultivars.
After hosting about a dozen virtual tours of Wuyishan with Wuyi Star, we curated a rock oolong sampler featuring 8 premium teas.
Vincent curated 5 Gushu Sheng Puerh from his trip to Yunnan province. All the tea trees where these teas come from are around 200 years or older.
Spring is when the best fresh green teas come out. We featured 7 pre-QingMing green teas from 5 provinces, 2 of which were limited-time gifts.
Black tea production in Sichuan started in mid last century, and since then won numerous international awards in the world of tea.
A type of fermented Dark Tea produced in Ya'an city, Tibetan tea has a continuous history of more than 1300 years and is an indispensable part of Tibetan people's daily lives.
Mt. Mengding is said to have the earliest written record of tea growing and has a history of producing tribute tea for emperors. Mend Ding Gan Lu (Sweet Dew) is often considered one of the top 10 famous Chinese teas.
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."
