Teaspring, Jings, and eBay tend to be my first stops when hunting...
then from there I either rely on friends or luck. None of these are
straight from the farm, but they are from in country. The bad part is
that I have had excellent tea show up on eBay and then after a month
the seller is gone leaving me wanting more. There are other good
internet vendors if you search the archives, I do from time to time
and occasionally I'll come across a gem or two.

I left our Hou De in my initial reply, but definitely they are on my
list. As for Teamasters, I just don't get the concept or how to go
about ordering anything from him. I'd be happy to hear how the process
goes though.
