This week two teas stood out from all others I had:
1) "Tenbu Funka" from T Ching
2) "1960s Bao Zhong" from Tea Masters
I strongly recommend one reads all the details about the "Tenbu Funka" in the link provided, it is fascinating (I can only wish I read them more carefully myself before I published my tasting notes there).
The Bao Zhong from Tea Masters is a great "taste of the past". I am not sure if this tea is acctually for sale, but it is worth asking Stephane and making him an offer he can't refuse.
It is not only for the great complex taste that I recommend it (this tea is outstanding), but for the fact that it is a great way to taste well aged oolong if you never tasted one before.
