+1 - MRH is my favorite! Bulk organic loose leaf is definitely the way to go - very economical.

I just bought Matcha tea online at amazon - made by Domatcha. It's expensive but it's definitely better than the stuff at the supermarket. It comes in a green powder that you whisk into hot water before drinking. The health benefits are supposed to be better than normal green tea. http://www.amazon.com/DoMatcha-Organic-Harvest-Matcha-2-82-Ounce/dp/B003O7T87C/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1302254969&sr=8-2-spell

The best site I have found for Canada is http://well.ca/categories/tea_682.html

They are cheaper and faster if you're Canadian but they ship to the United States too.

I've been buying 8.8oz (250gm) tins from Prince of Peace (link text ) because I liked their bag tea so much... and because I could get 9oz of tea for the same price as 4oz from local teashops.

Their bulk Dragonwell and Jasmine Green are as good as anything else I've had from the mall tea shops (Teavana) or from IngenuiTea. The teas I prefer, I'm unsure if they are organic or not. However they do offer Mao Feng (which is very good) and is organic.

I really like the Tea Spot because of their ethical and environmental stance. Plus, they have great teas!

An organic tea sampler from the Tea Spot: http://theteaspot.com/organic-tea-sampler.html?catid=255

Amazon does have great deals. Some of our faves: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001EPPF14

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E5E20E

Not organic, but excellent quality: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ID34WU

On the cheaper end, ebay, I have found organic teas that are directly shipped from China, avoiding the middle man. For example: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=organic+pu%27erh&_sacat=0&_odkw=organic+pu%27uh&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

By the way, I just got an email from Tea Spot. They are having a 25% off sale on Organic teas today only for EarthDay. Promo code: earthday :)

For general teas, I go with Upton Tea Imports.

For Chinese teas, especially oolongs, I go with Life in Teacup.

They are both much cheaper and often higher quality than popular stores like Teavana.

Oh, and for finding new teas in general, I find Steepster to be excellent, as Melissa mentioned.

I would recommend Numi

http://www.numitea.com/

They tend to have interesting flavors, flowering teas, loose leaf or bagged. Chocolate peurh (no sugar + cocoa powder and nibs) is a standout.

Another option is coffee bean direct:

http://www.coffeebeandirect.com/index.php?cPath=38&osCsid=47925cb64ab5aa84cb0865049b688d71

Not everything is organic, but some is, and pricing seems to be good.

I don't only because my favorite grocery store Rayley's has an EXCELLENT organic/all natural section. They have a TON of teas to choose from and they are almost always on sale :)

I buy looseleaf locally. some are organic, not all, and both are online.

http://www.tehku.com/index.php

and

http://shop.blueturtleteaandspice.com/ (This one you can actually sort by organic and fairtrade)

I personally have never purchased online from either, but speaking for them in the store, they're awesome.

Amazon frequently has some great deals on tea - I just bought organic chai rooibos (Yogi brand) for fairly cheap. I've also bought organic mother's milk lactation tea for WAY cheaper than I've ever seen it in stores. If you do the Subscribe and Save option you'll save an additional 15% and your tea will ship free - you can cancel right after making your order and you'll get the first order but no additional ones. I do it all the time - love it!

Rishi is probably the best, but $$$$$. I also buy from Mighty Leaf and Numi. Check out http://steepster.com/ it has tea ratings.
