Their site doesn't say where in Kunming they're located. Their shop looks familiar, but after a while all those tea shops kind of look the same. If they're located in the the Jinshi or Kangle tea markets I've probably at least stopped in. If I did it must not have stuck out in my memory as noteworthy. Their site looks nice and the English isn't half bad. Besides this line :
taste the pure coagulated aroma of thousand years
:lol:

Most shops don't even bother trying to court western customers. At least they're making the effort.

They hired an expensive translator.

Granted there's costs to doing business internationally. It's good to know what the comparison is though - when the markups are close to 50%
