I haven't tried Rishi but they seem to have an excellent reputation overall. Cloudwalker's price is high but IMO so was the quality of the OB, even more so than normal.
One thing I wasn't happy about was that customs opened the package, slit open the two bags of OB and refastened them with paperclips and scotch tape, and reshipped them to me, along with the pair of $70 oolong cups, in a bubble envelope! From previous orders, I knew Cloudwalker does not ship expensive cups in envelopes or open bags of OB. This is the one concern I have with placing orders in Canada; customs seems to be more concerned with packages from Canada than from other countries. To my knowlege, out of hundreds of packages shipped from Japan and more than a dozen from China, none have ever been opened by customs.
