Well yes, but is it a good quality place to buy tea? Their prices are suspiciously low...
I ordered through here and they do have good tea. Im my experience with MT, I was accidently sent the wrong order. They contacted me via email before I received the package and was told to call them. When I called, they were very nice and said that they already shipped out another package with the correct order and to keep the package I would receive later that day. Overall, Ill certianly be ordering from them again due to their customer service and quality of tea. Try the Organic High Mountain Oolong!

Ive had the following from MT: Creme Oolong, High Mountain Oolong(just realized ive been typing it wrong :oops: ), Oriential Beauty Cake, and Honey Oolong. My favorite would have to be the High Mountain with the Honey Oolong coming in next.

Those names are a good indication that the oolongs sold belong to the 'strawberry type', not the real deal, IMO. I haven't seen the Jade Maiden Oolong? :mrgreen:

So I agree with TeaArt08's comment.

Bagua, what is meant by "strawberry type?" I have had some of Mountain Tea's offerings and they were enjoyable. Nothing incredible, but good for the price. Cheers!

Ultimately the proof is in the pudding, isn't it? So you enjoyed it, right? That's what it counts in the end. :)

I just made a comment, and not a existential or transcending one, so no big deal. :lol:

I've found that with a lot of their teas, I'm often times running from bitterness, having to use cooler water with short steep times. The dong ding I have from them now has kind of an off, musty flavor to it which my mom says tastes like fish to her.

I think I've tried around 10 of their teas and while a few were a bit boring and forgettable, there were a couple winners. The two I really like and have reordered are Spring Lishan and Imperial Pearl. I highly recommend both.

Thats what im starting to see from them as well. On the upside, they are in the US and they have my favorite budget oolong (Organic High Mountian Oolong) right now. Ive tried a few from them where i couldnt finish the brew past the first infusion. Its probably not their fault though; It's due to me branching out and trying new teas.

I've only tried their Mountian Oolong and Imperial Perl Oolong. I instantly loved both, though in all fairness I generally don't buy super expensive high-end teas so I wouldn't know how it compares to those. Compared to Adagio, I found them to be superior, which is good as they are more expensive.

I notice that all the replies here seem to be from 1914. Has anyone had recent experience from mountaintea.com?
