Is Arbor Teas good for Green Tea?

I'm considering buying some Organic Emerald Spring Lung Ching Green Tea
from Arbor Teas but I've never done business with them before. Are these guys ok?

I've tried four teas from Arbor teas, which I received as a free sample. They were all good, but some were better than others. Only two were green teas: kukicha (which I thought was very good, definitely above average), and a Nepalese green tea, which was a bit of a novelty, it was okay, but in my opinion not as enjoyable as black teas from that region or greens from Japan or China.

The others were a top-notch first-flush Darjeeling from Makaibari estate that was among the best I've sampled, and a Jade Oolong that I did not like very much.

I actually just checked RateTea.net and there is a very favorable review of the Emerald Spring Lung Ching Green Tea, from a user and blogger (Sir William of the Leaf) whose opinion I generally trust, so that might point towards ordering this being a good idea.
