tea to dignify a priceless canister?

well, not priceless. ;)

on a recent trip to Japan, i splurged and bought myself a wonderful, entirely hand-crafted tea canister from a generations-old shop in Kyoto:
i plan on developing a collection of these on my future trips to Japan, so i won't be limited to just one type of loose leaf tea in a beautiful canister for long. :)

i am just getting into loose leaf tea so i'm not very familiar with good brands or even retailers. can Serious Eaters tell me about some of their favorite looseleaf teas and stockists? i prefer black teas with subtle flavorings, from extra-bergamot-y Earl Grey or Russian black tea.
