Still searching for the best dancong deals... teaneeds.com?

by jlheng » Sep 30th, '10, 08:54

So I've had dancongs from various places so far, and I would rank the quality of tea from vendors as follows:
1. TeaHabitat
2. Jing Teashop
3. Fang Gourmet Tea
4. Teaspring

I came across a vendor recently called teaneeds. Has anyone bought teas from them? I'm looking at this dancong in particular:

Hou De has some dancongs too, but I´ve never tried them.

I've had a number of Hou De's dan congs and thought they were good, but they were also the only dan congs I've ever had. I know they're well regarded though, so they're probably worth a try if you're cycling through dan cong vendors.

I have been happy with many DCs from Dragon Tea House, but usually prefer to spend the extra on Tea Habitat

I haven't tried their DC, so I can't speak to that in particular, but I have tried about 5 other teas from Tea Needs and have so far been unimpressed. A couple were all right - ones I'd maybe buy if I was already putting together an order from them but not ones I'd go out of my way for. The others were downright bad.

Maybe their DC is good, but I'm not optimistic.
