I prefer small vendors that have taken the time to visit the farms and get to know the farmers and tea masters. It's not a fool-proof method but its worked for me. My favorite American source of Chinese green tea is Seven Cups.
I've also learned here on Teachat to expect to see the harvest information posted on the seller's website.

I know I probably sound like a shill to some of the more regular people here, but I order most of my tea from TeaHong, wherein the people behind it are pretty strict about pesticide testing.
