Default Rishi Tea?

I picked up some Iron Goddess from this place the other day and enjoyed it.

http://www.rishi-tea.com/

What is the general consensus on this Rishi Place?

Are you getting a good product for the price?

I like their tins for future storage so that is worth a buck or two.
If your retailer carries the line it saves driving around town. It's
the selection carried at my Whole Foods Market. If you aren't familiar
with White tea they carry a good selection and the prices are
comparable. It is a respectable brand. You could do worse or better.
You might like the World Market brand carried at Cost Plus. But I say
ditch suburbia and drive into the city looking for the ethnic markets.

Rishi Tea is an okay average brand. My personal feeling it that it is
not worth the price. If you like premium teas in beautiful cans, I
suggest the Fah Guo Mountain Tea brand. http://www.fahguo.com

However, which ever tea you buy, make sure you don't use boiling water
to steep the tea--it will burn it, and never tea leaves in with the
tea especially Iron Goddess, sometime refer to as Iron Buddha or any
oolong teas. The tea will turn really bitter no matter how good the
quality. Therefore, drain the tea into another cup or another container
after you have finish steeping the tea. This way when you want to
resteep it again, you are ready.

Wow, $130 per kg for pu'er of unknown vintage from an unknown factory,
and it doesnt even say if it's raw/green/sheng or ripe/black/shu.

They must be some REALLY beautiful cans!
