How are the oolongs from this vendor, I looked at Bai Ji Guan, it looked authentic, has anybody tried Wu Yu oolongs from this vendor.

I've had some dong ding from them that was decent. They are a great vendor and can confirm that their customer service is also superb.

Similar story.
Was using their services quite for a while now.
Looks like i'll have to look for a new vendor.

Alex, you haven't received anything as well, have you?

I did hear from an Ebay vendor, that Ebay actually asked quite a few Tea Stores to stop selling on ebay. I do not know if that was a rumor, I thought it might have as I didn't actually notice anyone go down, but perhaps this is one of the first.

Really, why would ebay ask that ... just curious.

I wondered the same thing but for a while when you went on ebay searching for certain teas you would see many vendors all posting identical products. Most notable was certain large factory Puerh. So perhaps they wished to get rid of the number of vendors with near identical selections.

Perhaps because some of the vendors were suggesting to make deals off ebay for a discount.
However this doesn't explain, why Yum Tea is not working off ebay.
Personally i'd love to continue purchasing my tea from her (them).

YUM Tea is back but at a smaller scale (I guess they must have suffered some kind of business-related setback). Anyway their new name is:

Lantin Tea House
