Often, people's level of wanting tea exceeds their knowledge of which teas they want.  For this reason we have maintained the time-honored West China Tea tradition previously known as Papa Bear's C-Note Special.  We've painstakingly crafted this in response to the common request, "Can I just give you $100 and you pick out some tea for me?". 

When you order this, we will hand-select an assortment of teas for you with a retail value equal to or greater than $100, unless otherwise noted we'll try not to send you tea you have already received based on our records. Feel free to include any preferences or guidance you may have in your order notes.

Disclaimer: In order to account for variations in amounts of tea based on the curation, the package will be shipped as "containing up to 200g of tea." In most cases, the C-Note special will contain about 120-150g of tea spread out among different types.

    Fantastic Intro

    When I ordered this my intent was to try as many different types of tea as I was able to and this definitely hit that mark for me. I got to try a new tea every day for a month and I have so much left now that I can share with friends and family and introduce them as well. High quality, efficient packing and shipping. I would recommend this option if your knowledge is below your thirst level.

    Introduced me to more teas!

    Brought up by a grandpa from the Wuyi Mt, I've been a tea drinker ever since I had memory, but I have never ventured out of Dahongpao and Jinjunmei that I have been given to the whole life. This curators choice let me discover great new teas and I think I'm hooked by Sheng Pu'er now.

    Great Way to Explore

    I’m a big fan of the subscription box, but I’m also impatient. I wanted to try more of the teas, since I have yet to try anything from WCT that I dislike, but the catalogue is overwhelming. I wasn’t very specific about preferences for my assortment, and got a lovely selection of teas that I may never have selected on my own, but which have turned out to be some of my favorites so far! I will be reordering at least one of the offerings, and would gladly try another box like this in the future.

    I couldn’t be more pleased with my tea and my service! West China tea knows their tea,very knowledgeable and high standards for the tea they sell. I highly recommend buying from here and I personally can’t wait to shop here again.
