Gift Ideas - Starter Sets, Teapots, Samplers, etc.
Rishi has a pretty cool 2009 Award Winning sampler set (http://www.rishi-tea.com/store/2009-award-winning-sample-set.html). They also have one for 2008 as well, that’s a bit cheaper.
Samovar’s got free shipping included on a bunch of their gift sets currently. The At Work set (jn red or black), the Kyusu set, the Pu-Erh set, the Oolong set, and the Personal set all qualify you for free shipping.
Teavana’s got free shipping right now overall as well.
This sampler lets you pick and choose the assortment. Since you get 6 choices, I often select 2 or 3 new ones that I want to try and then use the others for small “thinking of you” gifts. I’d like to say that I give the tin away also but most of the time, it gets added to my ever growing collection.

Nothing to add, unfortunately, but I had a friend who I never knew liked tea come to my place last week, and she was fascinated by both my tea collection and my ingenuiTEA. I gave her the ingenuiTEA gift set last night and she loved it! She sent me a message a few hours after I left her place saying that she had used it and the tea was delicious.
