I ordered quite a few samples from Jing a few months back, and have enjoyed the first ones so much that it has been hard to discipline myself to not rip open and try all of them at once. I only ordered one that fits this topic, Huo Shan Huang Ya Yellow Tea. This is a gorgeous tea, liquor color between a yellow and a green, sweet, with a rich liquor, and good through many infusions--I got up to 12 once from a generous pinch in a small gaiwan. I could not believe it kept having flavor to give. It is like a cross between a light floral oolong and a very mellow green tea. I will definitely order more of this one again.

The service was excellent too--as I have noted elsewhere, I did not receive an attempted delivery notice from the USPS, and in my own confused way, assumed that I had forgotten choosing the surface shipping option. Sebastien sent me an e-mail so I knew to go get my goodies before they were returned to him. I thought that was pretty good service from a proprietor across an ocean.
