My favorite oolong right now is this Qi Lan from Rishi-Teas.

Li shan is awesome most times...as long as it is fresh.

Welcome to the forum, LLO...long live sencha...definately my fav these days, but a nice oolong and an occasional black are great too.

I recently opened my tea drawer to make a black tea that had sat for 2+ years (2004 or 2005 harvest. I will have to chaeck that out). I was stunned by how incredible it was. I think it was smoother, sweeter, and better than when fresh. Anyone notice this with certain Chinese blacks? It was Golden Monkey Imperial.

Imagine if we all changed our names here as often as Fuka Fatali Rage?

Sorry, I have no idea where to get it here in the states but if you find a place please let me know. This way I won't have to hoard my stash right now.

You might also want to check out http://www.shanshuiteas.com. Very pricey, but I hear they have good stuff.
