We would love to be able to give lead time for all price fluctuations in the Puer market, but alas, many teas are out of our control. Especially with older teas that have limited supplies and ever increasing demand, we are often in control of a very small portion of the overall amount in the market. In this instance, we were lucky enough to get a fair amount of the tea and a heads up about the dwindling supplies. The White Whale brick will have a price increase on September 1st, 2014. Purchase ye what ye please, mateys!
