Best Vendor of Japanese Teas?

I’m happy with the companies I’ve found to supply me with good Chinese teas (Teavivre, Verdant, Silk Road). But the only Japanese tea I’ve had is Genmaicha, which I love. Which are the best vendors for Japanese tea? By best, I mean good tea, good customer service, and good prices!

Several companies come to mind as being very good-to-excellent on all counts:

O-Cha, Zencha, Maiko, Ippodo, Mellow Monk

Den’s is OK if you live in the U.S. Otherwise, their shipping rates are too high.

Best wishes,

Den’s is excellent, as the others have all mentioned.

Aiya has some pretty remarkable Japanese Teas too: http://aiya-america.com/

As does Chado Tea House: http://chadoteahouse.com/
