Their Korean greens were quite good also.

But yes I second Tea Trekker's nomination for greens, if it is needed.

Not that it looks like it's needed but I'll fourth Jing Tea.

I would also like to make my first ever nomination :wink: , and unfortunately it's probably going to be a controversial one - Amazing Green Tea. Skepticism have been expressed on the forum before, especially with the site being marketing/gimmick heavy. I have no idea about the claims they make. I'm basing my nomination on 1) the quality of the teas I've bought from them (LJ A, LJ AAA, Biluochun Zhejian AAA, Anji Baicha, Mengding Ganlu); 2) the excellent packaging method in which these teas are sent and 3) their customer service (not the best but good enough).

I can also very strongly endorse Tea Trekker for Chinese greens. their shipping to Canada takes forever, though.

...they ran out of the absolutely fantastic mejeiawu village long jing, though. minus 50 points for that (just kidding)... I have less than an ounce left :(

Honestly, I am not being a smart azz here, but do you test your Chinese tea for harmful contaminants?

Interesting .... I priced some teas from them, and the shipping cost to Canada for 100 - 200 g. was outrageous. High price and slow delivery for shipping? Egad! :shock:
