I updated this list on September 9th, 2020. I took into account that some of the stores listed went out of business since Covid-19.
I rarely purchased my tea online in the past. But now since a couple of years, I tried various tea sold online and I loved them. I also ordered tea via friends when they traveled to China or Taiwan. As you might know, some of the world’s most prized teas such as Longjing also known as Dragon Well doesn’t leave China. I will keep updating this list organized by specialty.
