I just had another enchanting session with that tea yesterday. It is quite distinctly sweet, fruity, and not to expensive. If you're ordering from him anyway, I love his 'Diamond' TGY, and whenever I come back to it after some sessions with other, lesser oolongs, there is a feeling of oh yes, this is why I love it so. And toss in some loose Wuliang Mao Cha puerh while you're there, and a bit of the 2008 YiWu bamboo aged puerh--these are all teas I've enjoyed and my bagged-tea drinking associates at work love them too. I've ordered quite a bit from Norbu and have been very satisfied with both the inexpensive and pricier teas.
I got a very similar grade and wonderfulness of TGY from Jing Tea Shop, who also carry some marvelous Long Jing (I treated myself to their Imperial Shih Feng version, a little went a long way, and WOW, nice stuff). I was impressed with all of the samples I ordered from them, actually, and would be quite confident to order larger quantities next time, throughout their range of teas.
