I love Chinese tea too. Was introduced to different varieties of Puer, Longjing, Oolong, and Mo li hua cha few years back when i went to Shanghai for the first time. Until then all I knew was Lipton Green tea :embrass:
there is huge wholesale market in Shanghai where I usually buy the tea from. If anyone needs contacts, let me know.
I don't trust tea from China.. who knows what pesticides they use on the tea plants. I always like to get taiwanese tea. They got the best stuff. Some people say go shan cha "high mountain tea" is one of the best but I don't like the taste. My favorite is just a good clean quality jasmine green tea.
