As for Japanese tea, in general, I can recommend Sunday Natural - only available in French and German, but maybe useful to French and German speaking forum fellows:
www.sunday.de
www.sunday.fr

What I like is the tea quality, the sortiment, as well as the information about the cultivar, origin, farming grounds and methods.
I can also highly recommend their Green Roiboos and Sideritis.
What I did not like is their "Sunrouge Red Blueberry Leaf" which is a mixture with blueberry leaves; way too sour for my taste!
They also sell other teas and also teaware, which I cannot recommend since I did not try it out.

Yeah, I frequently buy tea from sunday.de. Over years they quite extended the selections of offered teas and from different regions. I tasted some really interesting Japanese black tea, earl gray white tea and a fair portion of senchas and gyokuros. Fast delivery too within Europe.

My first pots where purchased there too. They sell some pieces also found on artistic nippon. I can recommend shoryu kyusu, really really nice just slightly to big for single brew. I also purchased Tachi Masaki Banko pots there.

As I was just mentioning a tea from my friend's shop in Germany and they just started to launch an online shop, might as well post it here:
Anmo Art Cha, operating out of Düsseldorf. At some point I might do a review of their teas, as I have sampled most of their range.

https://anmo-art-cha.com/

There is a bit of everything in terms of tea, but their focus is on Pu-Erh and Japanese teas.

It is a kind of quirky shop as both founders are artists, reflected in an eclectic selection of tea and tea ware.

I've got a question about the seller you recommend me in the Yixing thread. @Bok once said that Yancha would be very expensive, and I was surprised to find Wuyi Da Hong Pao on the sellers website for only $28.95/100g. Isn't that way too cheap? What do you think about it?

I’ve only ordered her Taiwan teas, which I’ve really enjoyed, and am not a Da Hong Pao expert. Looking at Wuyi Origin pricing it’s in a similar price range (.36 gram), her’s is probably cheaper because it’s coming from ‘ Wuyi Mountains Region’ so not a specific famous area, just the region (.27 gram).

Thanks for the explanation. Then it seems to be okay. I just don't want to buy something from a vendor who sells questionable tea.

I don't really drink oolong, so while I haven't had that particular tea I have gotten tea from dKdT before - good communication and fast shipping. there seems to be a lot of transparency about what the teas are and where they are coming from and the selection is quite specialised so its a safe bet you are getting what it says it is.

Thanks :) Transparency is very important to me. For this reason, I've bought my tea from puretea.de and not from a local tea vendor. But it cannot hurt to try a different seller now and then. So I decided to give dKdT a try when I need to buy new tea.

Oolong I have ordered and really enjoyed so far from Die Kunst Des Tees;
  • Tian Xiang Hong Oolong 2015, 2017 (* AAA good *)
  • Mi Xiang Oolong
  • Li Hua Niang (Winter) 2016
Also, Kwon Ying von Beuningen has been doing a bunch of creative/poetic YouTube videos https://www.youtube.com/user/dieKunstdesTees

I bought 55g Tian Xiang Hong Oolong 2017 today, so I can see what others consider to be very good oolong tea. Thanks for the advice :) I am curious if it also suits my taste.
