Hey All:

It seems like a bunch of online tea shops come and go. I am wondering,
what do you consider the current top runners for quality tea?

If I may ask, are the words in your signature Hebrew or Yiddish and what
does it mean... I was curious as to their meaning and tried some translation
sites and couldn't get any results that made sense.... Thanks!!

It is Ecclesiastes 7:4:

The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. (ESV)

I happen to like that verse.

Hi again,
Thanks for the reply.... This was the best translation that I came up with
"heart of the wise in heart but in the house of joy" and it didn't make much
sense.... I guess the translation sites aren't that great in Biblical
Hebrew..!!!! ....and it is a very apt verse indeed....
Thanks,
Cosmo

Well, for a wide variety it's hard to beat Upton's. Everything I have had
from them over the years has been fresh, and it has been what they claimed
it was. This is more than I can say for a lot of other people I have dealt
with over the years.

What I did was google "best asian teas"
There are a number of quality sites that ship in bulk, as well as offer high quality loose leaf.

I think all the sites are more or less equal, unless you're searching for very fine, exotic tea.

I buy almost exclusively from Teaspring.com these days. Their teas are
tasty and fresh, the prices are competitive, and they ship very quickly.

Upton is great all round, except I've had better sencha elsewhere. I'm sticking with Upton unless there's a lure somewhere else. Toci
