I bought a few (6?? I think) 3 years ago very functional, good intro to yixing, in 2 separate purchases, so I liked them enough to make a 2nd purchase. I often use them on new teas to determine which of my more expensive yixings deserves to be used for that tea.

After living with these teas for a week they're good for the price. I was a little disappointed at first.

Update*: After ordering some more of their recommended teas I was actually pleasantly surprised. Great for the money. And good advice about what I was after.

So I've been using this vendor a lot recently and I'm really enjoying their teas. There's a certain light roast dong ding they do that is really lovely. After emailing the owner and asking for suggestions based on what I wanted I've gotten some superb teas over the last couple of months.

I was very ill around the time of ordering and drinking the teas which I bought from this vendor, having had swine flu over Christmas. My taste buds were shot and everything I bought tasted bad from various vendors. So I thought I'd update as my opinion wasnt really valid, and that's unfair on a vendor which I'm now extremely fond of.

I'd defiantly recommend contacting the vendor as she is a lovely helpful person. And the service has been superb.

Some great teas, which I'm currently drinking everyday :D

Their high-mountain teas are very good. I'm happy with their service and what what pour in my gaiwan. Use a Yixing (a good way of blowing a fine oolong and driking warm water instead :mrgreen: ) and surely you might think their teas are not that 'hot.'

Highly recommended vendor.
