I feel like Rishi's Minqian white teas are probably good teas and also a total rip-off.
Teaspring has 2008 Minqian Silver Needle and Mingqian Bai Mu Dan, both from Fuding, Fijian, for a fraction of Rishi's price. I've had the Bai Mu Dan so far, it's very lovely, really the most refreshing tea I've ever had, no regrets about not spending on Rishi...maybe you're paying for all the tea folklore they've thrown up with the meticulous picture.
I'm new to the forum, by the way, and I'm happy I finally found a topic to chime in on. I'm the worst at introductions tho. [/url]
