I'm not yet eligible to nominate, but if I may, I'd like to second this nomination.

I just got some samples from them. They have a very good selection, especially for samples of aged pu erh. They also have excellent packaging. Each sample came in a ziplock baggie inside a small box with a full color label showing a picture of the tea. Each box was wrapped in shrinkwrap and the whole set was encased in styrofoam. Nearly indestructable in shipping, no transfer of flavors, and very pretty and convenient for storing and displaying the samples. (Hope I'm not giving too much information for the nominatyions thread!)


+1
let me third this one :)

I'd like to add Hojo tea. Even though he doesn't allow buyers to buy directly from his website, he has been very responsive to emails. The orders were also shipped promptly and well packaged. I love his teapots as well as some of his tea.

The new 2011 Bing Dao mini bing is superb. Smooth and sweet with deep after taste. I also enjoyed his deep fired Dong Ding and Yun Feng Chinese green tea very much.

I'd like to throw a nomination into the hat...
Zen and Tea in San Francisco.
I have 3 pu's from there, and like them a lot. As i understand it the proprietor is a master of chinese medicine and is working with the Puerh Institute in Yunnan.
Also Essence of Tea, and Teance. I have several pu's from each of these, and they are good.
Another element that would be of vital interest to me is a reputable vendor that has some older sheng (as some of you may remember, I'm old school and not at all into the young sheng pu's that havent been properly aged yet - 'chan ko' choke throat, yuck!; no dis to those of you that like 'em, its just that i dont care for them).

sampletea.com is a good vendor for puerh. I think they should have a thread so people can talk about them.

Based on what little experience I have with puerh, I've liked the stuff I've gotten from them. They also send out little samples with orders, which is a great way to try their selection.

Origin Tea is no longer selling tea as of June 2014. They are selling out the teapots, pretty much all gone already too.

This topic is pretty old.

Yes! White2Tea definitely needs to be on the list! I've also had a good experience with Mandala. Have yet to give Crimson Lotus a try though.

Are all of the recommendations international or does the list need a geographic perspective to it??
