Very Nice Chinese Green Tea from Ito-En

I recently received an order of Taiping Houkui tea from Ito-En.

http://www.itoen.com/leaf/index.cfm?s...

I ordered it because the website described it as one of the best Chinese teas they have ever sold, and I really like it. It has almost a smoky taste and is quite different from the Japanese senchas that I usually enjoy.

I also recently received an order of tea -- matcha and sencha -- from www.o-cha.com in Japan. The tea arrived quite quickly and was nicely packaged, but I was a bit disappointed. I have enjoyed the matchas and senchas that I have ordered from Ito-En more than I liked these.
