Chinese Green Vendor Recommendation

by beachape » Sep 19th 17 9:53 pm

Looking for a vendor who sells high quality Chinese green tea and ships to the US.

I hadn't purchased Chinese green in a while but remembered reading many positive reviews of teaspring.com. Placed an order this May for Lion Long Jing, Dong Ting Bi Luo Chun, and Meng Ding Gan Lu and the only one that tasted fresh was the Meng Ding Gan Lu. Could have been the packaging (got the 25gram bags), or just bad luck.

Do you guys still have good experience with teaspring? Any vendors who have reliably good Chinese greens?

Thanks!

I've been happy with Teavivre.

I've gotten what I think are quite high quality greens from JingTeaShop, and some inexpensive and very interesting but not necessarily 'best' greens from Yunnan Sourcing. Norbu's chinese greens have always been very good, but his selection at the moment is almost nil--the only green I see is Jasmine Pearl.

Life in a Teacup has the best Chinese greens that I've tried so far. Their an ji bai cha and their tai ping hou kui are wonderful.

I've heard Seven Cups has some pretty good Chinese greens.

Tea Hong has some really nice longjing, and a few other good greens.

Finally, Jing Tea Shop has some really good longjing, anji bai cha, and a few others.
