Shen,

Several members of the LJ Pu-erh Community have transacted with this
vendor before and they found the people behind tuochatea.com to be
reliable and trustworthy. Further, their prices are very competitive,
though the selections are not as wide as YSLLC. I personally am making
a shopping list and may get something from tuochatea.com.

Orders arrive well packaged and timely, they even put english labels on
the items.
Let me know what you are looking at and I'll see if I have allready
tasted it.

I second that; very reliable dealer and great service.

However, do keep in mind that the "Specials" items are cheaper for a
good reason.

No. ;-P

I officially retract my statement above; I wholeheartedly apologize for
any misrepresentation I incurred.

I was mistaken, but do instead offer the suggestion that you avoid the
"2004 Ji Xing brand Golden Melon Tribute Pu-erh" under the "Aged
Pu-erh" heading, as it smells like barbecued meat and a friend found a
match stick in a sample chunk I sent him. *ugh*

The remainder of my order was above my expectations; received
everything I ordered, each cake/pair was in zip bags and packed very
efficiently, and it survived Surface shipping with damage to only ONE
wrapper (the one at the end of the box). Very satisfied with my order.
:-D

I again apologize for my mistake in the previous post; that was the
only item I had an issue with and somehow thought it had been in the
"Specials" section. :/

I've bought from them before and I'd buy from them again. They are reliable
and friendly and helpful. If you are after anything in particular that's
not listed on the site it never hurts to ask as not everything they have in
stock is always listed. On the plus side they also label all the teas with
and english-language sticker which is a very handy reference if you plan to
keep them for a few years.
