I got the jasmine pearls tea from them. I think it took around 2 weeks and it was only so-so. It seems they are pu erh specialists and I haven't started drinking pu erh yet.

I've ordered a bunch of pu-erh from them, and they're great to deal with -- offering recommendations and stuff like that. The pu-erh I've gotten is great.
I did buy an oolong from them once, and, like devites said about their non-pu, it was decent but not awesome.. So I'll probably stick with just pu from them.
Shipments via SAL took about 3 weeks, sometimes a little less. Good luck!

I'm not much on puerh, but YSLLC is my go to dealer for Yunnan Gold black tea. As others have said, shipping usually takes 2-3 weeks.

I also liked their Yunnan origin silver needle. I've had better, but theirs was respectable...and since most white teas come from Fujian, it was a treat to experience the difference 'terroir' can make.

I'd quote the refrain from "Lady Marmelade"...but that would be gauche. :)

scott from yunnan is a specialist in pu erh. totally trustworthy. for oolong i would go to others who specialize in this tea. he uses sal for mailing service so that should mean that the delivery time is anywhere between a week and a bit to two.

yunnan sourcing is great to deal with. totally legit to deal with, if you love pu erh you can't beat his price and selection. for buying pu erh, it is best to have the third number to be the lowest, that being the highest grade. 3rd number.

I use YSLLC for puerh and cheap yixing/teaware. They are a reliable source and good to deal with. No idea on their oolongs as I have preferred vendors for those.

i got these two yi xing tea pots that i want to get rid of, prefer to trade them. i don't like how the tea handles are built, i have big hands.

anyone from toronto here? pm me, maybe we can trade the pots, you can have a look, or i will sell them pretty cheap. they cost me about 35 bucks.

Yeah, that's how I feel, decent but not awesome.

I got their DHP a while back and wasn't very impressed. It was rather soapy.
