G'day Mate!

by Dr. Eel » Jan 24th, '08, 21:20

Cheers,
I've actually been reading all of the posts and stuff from all of you guys-like Chip- that seem to know a whole heck of a lot of stuff about tea for awhile now, i just recently decided to join. I drink mostly green and oolong (really interested in Asian culture, etc.). Actually, im just about out of oolong and have only a little longjing left and was wondering if someone might suggest a good place to order some green-particularly chinese-and oolong teas. Just curious as to where u all get your teas from.

Welcome Dr. Eel! Adagio is definitely one of the better domestic vendors you will find, so you might consider them. Generally I prefer to buy from vendors based in the country of the teas they sell, though. If you want really good Chinese oolongs, try http://www.teacuppa.com, or http://www.jingteashop.com; for Taiwanese oolongs, http://www.houdeasianart.com is a good choice, as is http://www.aurateas.com. For greens, everyone in the know seems to recommend http://www.teaspring.com and "Dragon Tea House" (an ebay vendor).

Hope this helps! If you have any questions, want rec's on specific teas, etc. please post again or drop by the chat room!

Welcome to TeaChat, doc. I share an interest in Asian culture with you.

Shucks, stick around long enough and lots of TeaKnowledge is bound to rub off on you!!!

What kind of greens and oolongs do you enjoy?
