I'm thinking about dropping an order. Not fan of their marketing so mostly just samples to see what they're about. That being said, I'd welcome some sheng recommendations!

Sheng
My experience with his sheng is somewhat limited, but I can recommend the 2009 Jingmai brick and 2016 Diving Duck.
If you're into huangpian, the 2016 Fade would be worth looking into, I suppose. Personally I don't care much for huangpian, though, so... meh.
The Green Hypes are solid, if somewhat pedestrian.
The 2017 Poundcake I found rather boring. It was sweet, yes, but not much else.

Shu
His shu is solid, although I lean more towards the Yunnan Sourcing profile. He's all-in on small batch productions this year, including this $120/200g blend, so could get really interesting.

White
I quite like his white teas.
The Turtle Doves (any year) are no-brainers, if you ask me. Heavy on the honey notes. The 2013 Gongmei is also really good, with a sort of hazelnut nougat flavour profile. The 2017 Bamboo Dove works well grandpa-style.

Personally w2t actually has my favorite marketing of any western vendor. I feel like Paul's art school background really factors into his wrapper/tea design, typically succeeding at the "product an artistic message" strategy he goes for.

Ironically, I don't really like the "house style" all too much -- his particular flavor profile is pretty middle of the road for me, compared to say BYH or CLT.
