I'll nominate Tea Trekker, partially because the 2010 Tie Lo Han that I'm hitting on right now is so darn good.

There is a large thread on Ishopo in the Oolong forum. I think they have some very good oolongs for the price and I like drinking high mountain oolongs every day, so price is important to me. I have tried and liked their Wu Ling, Long Feng Xia, Da Yu Ling, and I've also like their Sky Crane Honey green tea.

Yes, but you know how emotional people can be here when it comes to tea matters, :lol: I prefer to ask individually, like now.

Will place an order for some Wu Ling and Da Yu Ling. Thanks! :)

Aroma Tea Shop has the best Tie Guan Yin Oolong Teas. They even have their own video blog about it. Go to www.aromteashop.com to check them out.

Indeed :lol:

I am disappointed that Adam needed to test the link - I always purposefully refuse to visit links from spammers as a matter of principle, certainly at least until the Moderator has had a chance to test it out for viruses! :lol:

I only tested it because I couldn't believe there was actually a shop called arom tea house. Plus Linux is helpful sometimes for avoiding sticky situations with viruses.
