Methinks this site might be of a bit of interest to you, since you like XZH

http://www.sanhetang.com.tw/index.html

I don't think they've been online very long, because I don't remember seeing this thing maybe a year ago while I was googling. Maybe you already know about it, but others probably don't.

I heard rumour either they are not allowed to sell their products in shops or they are not allow to advertise it in China due to the steamy wrappers pictures on their cakes and they have to resort to sell them online.

The newer wrappers aren't so steamy

Yeah I would say its a safe bet that the president of the american chapter of the XZH fan boy club knows about this site.

I had forgotten all about it though. I think its been up for about a year maybe a little less.

SOTD: XZH 2011 DianGu TieBing (iron cake) - (http://www.sanhetang.com.tw/product.aspx?productid=1298)

This tea is fairly bitter but has a good underlying fruitiness which produces some nice huigan. In fact I would say that this is probably the most bitter young sheng I've had in some time. Like other young XZH sheng, the liquor is slightly orange. Also, it doesn't have that very green young sheng taste that is found in Nada's cakes and most YS cakes. This seems to be a "signature" of XZH sheng. I don't know if it comes from just slightly more oxidation or some other type of processing.

The qi from this tea was quite nice - energizing but not causing jitteriness. It was also quite durable.

The 2007 DXS maocha could be astoundingly bitter and rough.

No sheng of the day today, was Secret Fragrance shu, but yesterday was a satisfactory '05 MYH Yieh Sheng. Not really having anything exiting these days...

I even check the YangQingHao site!

I really wish more good tea makers would have a website up that you could order tea from.

There were problems with steamy wrappers, with the '05, '06, and the very early practice bings, and XZH still makes steamy wrapper for their special productions (posted on facebook, and not sold on the website). Anyways, XZH has had a pretty strong focus on garnering a worldwide brand recognition, so they sell online and they declare their prices, unlike other Taiwanese places that have you contact them for price quotes.
