I'd be interested to know what's good as well. I only ordered wares.

Andao Tea Reviews:
Oolong:
Big Red Robe: This is a great oolong for the price and the best Reg Robe i've had. Its smooth with a little smokiness and some light sweetness. Good Gan. Great Qi! (90/100)

Green:
Buddah's Eyebrow: A little smoky. Tastes a lot like a good Indian green, but better, mellower with some sweetness. Some buttery mouth feel.(85/100)

Premium Jade Sword: Perfectly groomed, only buds. Very light tasting with a full buttery mouth feel. Nice medium sweetness. (90/100)

Melon Seed: Taste like tea with some slight nutty [maybe seedy?] taste. (85/90)

Its pricey, but you can get many red robes that aren't nearly as good for 9-10 dollars an ounce.

You might try more leaf with the Lu An Gua Pian. While it's not a real strong tea, I generally find it more flavorful than many of the others.
