I like mountain rose herbs. I have ordered a few times from them. Service is great and I like the tea.

Tea Emporium (all DJs have been really good here so far, esp. FF)
Lochan Tea (some nice Chai offerings, some decent 2nd flush Darjeelings, haven't had any fresh First Flush from them yet)

PMs sent.

For having some of the best black teas that I have had so far, I nominate the New Mexico Tea Company.
