I drink some Genmai Cha now and then as well, but I get burned out on it. I have some cheap Oolong from a local coffe shop that sells for $1.25 an ounce... they call it Min Nam Oolong... I call it no taste oolong.... I finally was able to talk my wife into letting me get some "real" tea... and I'm not dissappointed.

I'm ok with slumming it with some lower quality stuff for daily drinking and saving my sweet leafs for the evening after work cool-down . I have found the occaisional pre-packaged Oolong that suprises me (you know, the funky long plastic bags with the asian writing all over them you find at the Asian grocery). Fewer and farther between since moving to Cleveland... not exactly a tea drinkers paradise. Although I did just discover there's a small "chinatown"... looking forward to exploring that soon! Will let you know if I find any gems. hehe.
(Will be trying Oolong #8 in the morning, that's not too far off of that $2 an ounce mark. Just a matter of wether I like it or not...)

Wow where are you buying your TKY?
