GREEN TEA ...who should I order from next?

liu | Jun 22, 2006 02:33 PM

I am on a quest to find some wonderful GREEN TEAS, both Chinese and Japanese (especially organic). I have been pleased with some of the on-line mail orders; I can ask for sample sizes of a dozen or so and try the best that the dealer has to offer.
To date, I have tried Harney & Sons, Rishi, Upton Tea Imports, and The Tea Company on-line, and I have tried several other stores in the Los Angeles area. I have even purchased some restaurant teas (from Amandine, for example).
Who should I mail order from on-line next? I want only GREEN TEAS (simply my preference to date), and I prefer the higher-end suppliers who specialize in their own teas, rather than store-fronting for several other brands.
Thanks -- in advance -- for any suggestions you might have! Although I have been to a lot of the tea places in Los Angeles, I am certainly open to your suggestions for our local shops as well.
