Don't know this particular place but I totally agree about www.uptontea.com. I've been a customer for 10 years+ and always been impressed with their quality, selection & amazing cs. www.specialteas.com is right up there with Upton in terms of excellence as is www.harney.com.

    Upton's website is also highly informative, passion without preciousness.

      I'm changing my comment because the Upton discussion originally was comparing it to a local tea shop which doesn't make sense since this was moved.

      Imperial Tea also has an informative site.

      Thanks for the tip. I can see by your username, you're into tea.

      BTW, have you ever order online or been to the Fauchon store in NYC? http://www.fauchon.com/index1.php

        I am a long time Upton customer, but for Chinese greens and other asian teas I would also recommend Silk Road Teas (in the SF Bay area - there is another in the NW with a similar name), at http://www.silkroadteas.com/

          Thank you, Tom Simonson, for this suggestion of Silk Road Teas. I just checked their website and plan to order my next batch of Chinese greens from them.

          I had never heard of them, so I am looking forward to tasting their offerings.
