Hello from London Ontario, my name is Armin and I've been drinking tea for little over 20 years. I started with probably Lipton... with lots of sugar and lemon
For the last 5 years I've been into organic green tea but I don't really have a great source for my tea and until now I didn't have the time to look up for honest, high quality reliable sources.
Right now I am looking to learn more about tea, how to buy, where and whom to trust also what kind of questions to ask myself before buying a tea and also the seller.
My last order was placed last week at TeaSpring.com and it was for Long Jing 50g (the regular one). I choose that website because I am a total beginner and had no idea about other sources. I thought a website that shows customers reviews must be a good one... We'll see.
Right now I am enjoying a high quality organic Sencha that I got as a gift.
If anyone can point me into the right direction where to buy high quality long jing organic tea, oolong and pu-erh I would be very grateful.
Also I saw David's (Hoffman) movie and I was fascinated by his passion and dedication, and a bit scared on how hard it is to obtain a good quality tea that is not loaded with chemicals and chemical fertilizers....
I would love to try one of those pu-erh they drink in Tibet, yes something that will wake me up in the morning.
I am pretty open to new tastes and willing to try a wide variety of tea.
Next on my list was to take a look intoThePhenixCollection.com and order from there but I'm not sure if that is really David's website and he is taking care of the business?
Also if anyone has a reliable source for Yixing zisha tea pot I would love to buy couple of those. Not the antique very expensive ones but you know, for everyday use.... In this respect I was thinking at Silk Road Tea website. They have a very nice collection of Yixing tea pots.
Any opinion and help is great appreciated.
