I have, and greatly enjoy, this spring's Lu Shan Yun Wu from Teavivre. With the express shipping, it takes about a week to Boston.

I've been enjoying a 2014 Lu Shan Yun Wu from Teavivre. I'm getting many (>10) good infusions and a long lasting huigan.

Does anyone know which site is best to buy samples of the 2014 chinese greens? I'm thinking about sampling different type, not just long jing, as I really want to explore Chinese greens. I read teaspring has good TPHK, but I'm not sure how good the rest of their teas are. Maybe a little bit off topic, and I apologize for that.
Thanks in advance.

I finally received my 2014 Anji Baicha from Jing. The original package was apparently lost in China Mail, but Sebastien resent my order. The whole 250 g is packed in a nice paper bag with a foil lining on the inside, but it wasn't sealed - only wrapped around itself for a bit.

The Anji Baicha leaves are just like those pictured on the Jingteashop site. It seems like excellent quality. The taste is midly sweet as it should be. The leaves keep on giving despite multiple long steepings.

Another favorite of mine is the 2014 Taiwan Style Green Tea from Taiwan Tea Crafts. Even more so than Anji Baicha, this tea is easy to brew. It can take long steepings even with fairly high temperatures. It makes me feel good. There is no bitterness, but rather a strong, sweet tea taste. There's a lot going on, including reminiscence of Baguashan Baozhong. The leaves can be somewhat large as in a high mountain oolong. There are even some pieces of stems. This is reflected in the price, however.

The 2014 Long Jing from TTC is also excellent. Unlike other LJs I've had at this price point, this tea is smooth with a lack of bitterness. It doesn't seem like a pre-Ming tea to me, as the leaves are large compared to LJ from Jing or imperial LJ from Jkteashop. However, the leaf structure is intact. Overall, it is a better tea than the premium LJ from Jkteashop.

Jkteashop has a variety of greens in their sampler pack, but I don't yet have enough experience with them. My experience with the quality of Teaspring is mixed, but I've only tried their Bi Tan Piao Xue (good, vanilla) and lower-end Long Jing (not so good last year). Another vendor, that I haven't tried, is Amazing Green Tea - experiences, anyone?

They sell one of the best long jing I have ever found online.
