Are you going to drink it or smoke it? :?

Try the sampler or get individual samples of your own choosing so you can see what's out there. Put the bong away, though, and get out your tea cup. :idea:

Good plan. 8)

The li zi nutcracker and the kukicha are tasty. The others in the sample are good, too...

With jasmine teas, people either love them or hate them because they do have a fairly dominant floral note in the flavor. I'd suggest ordering a sample of it before going with a bigger order. It also tends to hide the grassiness that green teas have which you may find to be to your advantage.

I have a done lot of business with Rishi Tea, http://www.rishi-tea.com, and they have a fantastic selection of green teas. My favorite is the kuki matcha, and the organic sencha is a perfect everyday green tea, tastes great, it's organic, and so affordable it comes to about .5-.10 cents a cup.

Another good place to look is http://www.teaspring.com.
