I got some 3 years back, they were good honest mid range teas, nothing to shout about but enjoyable drinking.

The service from the shop was excellent, I found a small chip on a teapot (almost impossible to see) they sent a free replacement of a higher priced teapot.

You only know a decent vendor when things go wrong IMO.

I'll make an order for some of their high end stuff and report back. I'd be happy with some everyday tea TBH.

That's crazy cheap. I'm guessing they just do decent everyday tea.

Friendly, fast service, but tea is not that hot.

If Taiwanese is your #1 bag and you are looking for something to fill out the premium stuff, this *might* work for you.
