US site for Wu Shing Publications. Seems to have good prices on some cakes from the late 1990s to the early 2000s.

I bought a few issues of AoT from them. They did just list the puerh this past week. They mentioned to me that they have a family connection in Taiwan from which they source the puerh.

I ordered from Tearoma recently, issue 9 of the art of tea. They sent me issue 11, which is kind of a bummer. where they in some kind of hurry or are they incompetent?

Mistakes happen. It's what companies do about them (and to reduce their frequency) that really matters.

Has anybody ordered from them recently? The webpage doesn't seem to have been updated since 2011.

Half Dipper has a few tasting notes of some of there teas on his blog.
I have been tempted to order from them but still haven't.
They have had tea for sale for a few years now on tearomashop.com.
With samples available, but they are always sold out of any decent samples.

I've tried a few of their samples (a couple years back), and wasn't really enamored of them - the tea wasn't bad, but wasn't really plausible (to me) as what it was being sold as.
