Silentchaos of http://origintea.net/ is a vendor on here. I like the gaoshan oolongs he has.

TeaDB has a post on Taiwanese oolongs in general:

I'll second that. Also, they have 25g packets which is the perfect size for getting to know a new tea, IMHO, and a great shipping deal. Surprisingly rapid transit to the US also. I've tried nearly all of their oolongs, really an excellent journey.

+1

Origin tea is an excellent vendor of Oolongs, the Goashans are very nice, and the roasted stuff too! Also some nice Taiwanese stored puerh! I've ordered a lot from them and a yixing pot and I've been delighted each time! :)

EDIT: I'm from Ireland, and I found the normal shipping better than the EMS
