Wu Yi ensemble from Adagio has become my favorite Oolong. I was curious if their are similar tea's with that dark, oriental flavor to them. Maybe like Oolong#8 from Adagio if any of you have tried it.. but just with that distinctness to it. Any suggestions or input would be very much appreciated.

Their Oolong #8 is a darker, roasty oolong similar to Wuyi. Leaves are broken up a bit much for my taste, but the flavor is going to be fairly similar. I say give it a try - for me, it's a nice, cheaper tea that I can drink regularly instead of feeling like I have to have a special occasion.
So far I've only used Hou De for my Wuyi except for a recent small order from Cloudwalker. Although it was good, I'll stick with Hou De for my Wuyi. I haven't tried this type from Jing Tea Shop, but have been very happy with their better-quality green teas.

Another place to check out is Sevencups. They have quite a variety of Yancha which to me seemed to be pretty good. I'm pretty new to Wuyi though, so my palate isn't very developed yet.
