Hi everybody,

glad to discover this forum. Where can one find the best hao ya a these days?... I noticed quality can be quite variable.

Cheers,

Bogdan

TeaSpring's was pretty good last I tried it.

Not quite hao ya but I found Tim's jin jun mai to have a fairly similar profile and the tea was one of the finest teas I've ever had the pleasure to drink, and that was only the 2nd grade.

Jingteashop also tend to be pretty reliable for qimen.

specialteas was my favorite reliable stateside vendor for high-end china/india blacks, but they are defunct (teavana? bleh), oh well...

try http://www.theteastop.com/chinablack.html

and sometimes ito en has it

their keemun spring dawn is awesome, albeit pricey.
