Thanks in advance to anyone who helps steer me in the right direction. :)

I second Seven Cups and Red Blossom (have you seen the price for their finest dragonwell? $85 for 2oz :shock: ). I might also add Verdant Tea. All of these selections are known for their quality and commitment to justice and sustainability, as well as being organic.

Not really a reccomendation since I have not tried any of these, but you can try them out and tell me how good they are :mrgreen:

teaspring has some greens listed as certified organic...

http://www.teaspring.com/Cha-Wang-Lu-An-Gua-Pian.asp
http://www.teaspring.com/Xu-Fu-Long-Ya.asp

yunnan souricng just started selling a few new 2012 as well at very low prices....

I have a suspicion these new 2012 ones are a big step up from the previous organic green tea offerings on the site.

anyone try any of those yet? From either vendor?

On what do you base this suspicion?

Because Scott is awesome and sells some great teas.

That is the reason, right? :mrgreen:

what poohblah said!

Also gut feeling and a little pieces here and there, like the pics for the previous organic teas seem more on the heavier roasted side (not really what I want though not a bad thing necessarily), wuliang is a good place for tea to grow no?, some previous organics don't state harvest, one is not spring, price differences, etc etc jasmine pearls :)

Teaspring sells some organic chinese teas as well but you kind of have to search for them

ive liked pretty much everything ive tried from both Verdant and Teaspring tbh

on teaspring im working on their list of 2012s, currently 2 Meng Dings cued up for the weekend

the only negatory is that both packages ive received arrived OPEN, tho nothing was stolen

sloppy Customs mb, but why only them?

I like to deal with vendors that inspire that level of trust. That's how I feel about Jing Tea Shop and Seven Cups. I'll have to take a closer look at Yunnan Sourcing offerings.
