I noticed that Ito-En is missing. That is one of my favorite spots for loose leaf tea. They often have small amounts of higher grade teas that they only sell through their store in NYC. Although it is a Japanese company, and they therefore have great Japanese teas, their Chinese and other teas are also top quality, although pricey. The site is at
I think their bottled teas are the best too.

Thank you, I over looked them.

I agree their RTD teas are superior to most others.

Hi Alex,
Would you be happy to add my small store to your list...

I hate to be 'one of those vendors', but you don't seem to mind a shop owner mentioning their company. Try looking into:
I carry lots of Japanese and Chinese tea ware and some lovely teas...if I do say so myself. I'm adding a couple of new oolongs right this minute and that's how I found your blog. I enjoyed visiting, thanks for tea blogging! ~Mary

I lived in China for a while and grew to love Chinese greens and Fujian Wulongs. My favourite source for these outside of China (I've tried A LOT of Tea for this place) is Xiu Xian Tea:

Other WONDERFUL lose leaf tea vendors:
Floating Leaves in Seattle (VERY BEST Taiwanese/Formosa Wulong you will find IN THE States.


TeaFox - Some incredible Sencha and Gyokuro here. Farm fresh as well!

p.S> I noticed Taos of Tea from Portland on your list. Their 500 Mile Chai, Jin Xuan wulong, and HM Nilgiri is quite special. I hope you see for yourself someday.

Enjoy your tea!

Someone mentioned floating leaves tea in seattle - another worthwhile vendor is all organic and good quality for what I've tried.

MAG Tea Company said...

For tea enthusiasts who find your way to this excellent blog, may I invite you to visit MAG Tea is new tea company with a very unique approach. This is an on-line tea company where award winning loose leaf teas from several tea brands can be purchased at a single location.

The MAG Tea story is pretty straight forward. While searching for high quality and great tasting loose leaf teas we discovered the North American Tea Championship, and soon learned that many of the tea brands recognized as Tea Champions are truly outstanding loose leaf teas.

To make a long story short, we built relationships with several established tea companies and MAG Tea is now selling a number of teas that received Tea Champion awards.

MAG Tea is new, and may be called a boutique tea company, because the number of teas carried is relatively small. Even so, the majority of teas sold are true national award winning teas, and there are selections in the various categories of black, green, white, oolong and puerh tea, as well as rooibos and herbal infusions.

MAG Tea has identified some great tasting loose leaf decaffeinated tea, since there are times when we love a great cup of tea but we don’t need the caffeine-buzz. Yes, believe it or not, MAG Tea has a number of great excellent loose leaf decaf teas and caffeine-free infusions.

We’d appreciate your comments about our unique approach and focus on providing tea enthusiasts the convenience of ordering a variety award winning tea brands at one location. We look forward to your visit to
