When you see or hear the word oolong, what tea site/store/merchant comes to mind?

Fear ... just the word fear. (I think I can, I think I can, I think I can ....) The TKY sample has arrived and tomorrow is the day for the *big brew.* <sigh>

HouDe for Taiwanese
Red Blossom for Chinese/WuYi (their golden buddha is fantastic)

But I have some local shops that are better... ;)

http://www.just4tea.com/ has some great tie guan yin. All of their oolongs are my favorite.

EDIT: What shop do you think has the best aged oolong? What about the best dan cong?

It's all about Hou De.
And Jing Shop
And sometimes about TeaCuppa.
And let's not forget Adagio.
I love oolong.

It seems to me that you need multiple threads for oolong! I would be surprised to find one vendor at the top of most lists for green oolongs, aged oolongs, dark oolongs, roasted oolongs, bai hao, and dan cong.

I would recommend Jingteashop for Oolong.

Great minds think alike. Unfortunately so do stupid ones. Let's just agree we are in the former category ok?
