yes we did poll it and although I was talking about not getting it, we did.... and it was GREAT.
Chinese Gunpowder Green Temple Heaven Tea @ $26/kg*
The interesting thing is that I was told that the provider you mentioned shares the same wholesaler as us! Assuming that is true then they are making a fairly (un)reasonable markup.
The last tea we had on poll was
Chinese Lapsang Souchong Tea @ $24.50/kg*
...and it polled very slowly even though it too has a retail price of over $100 a kilo. To close the poll I had to buy more than 10kg and to be honest I have no real use or desire for $250 of tea. I have given most of it away and use some in starter packs but I dont think we have enough TeaSnobs here to support buying such large amounts.
Later in the year we might poll another highend-tea... ergo you have a couple of months of lobbying to make it a success.
