I do not mean to make more work for Chip,
but, of course Adagio for white tea.

The others need seconds ( I believe) as its unusual for a vendor to carry more than 1-2 of each white and yellow teas.

Jing Tea Shop
Teaspring
The Tea Gallery

that is all I can think of for now.

Some of these will need a second from a qualifying member. I will post after checking.

I think Dragon teahouse should also be on this list, they too source from the company that owns Jun Shan island production, the same company from which Hojotea and Teaspring sources their teas, and DT also sources original Meng Ding Huang Ya, when they write this in the description, I believe it, because they don`t say this with many other teas, only a few that are expenceive like (Ba Ji Guan, that is also the real thing) >
"Authentic Meng Ding Huang Ya from Sichuan. Beware this is a yellow tea but looks GREEN, the buds should be robust. Thoese with yellow color and imperfect grain are fake. "

Yunnansourcing does have white tea. The fall 2009 Silver Needle has quite a nice aroma and taste. What do you think ? Not white tea ?

The Tea Gallery has only 2 white teas listed and no yellows. They will require a second from a qualified member to be listed in this category.

Infusions of Tea has 3-4 white tea offerings that are nonflavored (flavored falls into another category). This vendor therefore requires a second from a qualified member in order to be listed in this category.

I second the nomination for The Tea gallery, as depending on the time of year and what they have in stock, they may have more or less, though I think they just about always have one or two in stock.

I'm not sure of others opinions here but I'd like to nominate Tea Adventure for their whites and yellows! I just had a delivery of both and it was lovely!
