If you're going to buy from China (Kunming), the shipping is likely to kill you. There is a floor for shipping, so you may as well buy a giant pile. A great big box the shipping will only be a bit more.

If you only order samples, you can get cheaper shipping. I put one sample (25g) in my cart and had two small parcel shipping options that were 7.70 and 9.00.
By the time I got up to 7 x 25g samples, the shipping was around $11-14.

He must be making a killing on shipping. A 200g package costs $7-$8 to ship. That should be enough to get a 100g of tea in.
