Special Teas

Well, it is official. SpecialTeas is now Teavana. Yuck. Too bad. Thanks for all the good tea at reasonable prices. Too bad Teavana will offer some of the Special Teas tea for inflated prices. Not that they have not been doing that for years, but now the alternative is gone. Yeah, I’m a little pissed.

I JUST found out about this as I order in bulk! I had been ordering Blueberry Yogurt tea from Special Teas for years. Any one know where I can find a tea like this?

Noooooo. Their tea was affordable. My heart is a little broken. I never got to try their lemon chiffon tea. And their almond cookie tea was so cheap and tasty.

I think that is the real issue. Their teas were appropriately priced, unlike teavana. You could buy some of the same teas, at a fraction of the price. Teavana is the used car lot of tea.

Oh that’s too bad! :( I was very much looking forward to trying some of SpecialTeas’ blends.

I have a ton of their blends that I purchased right before they went switched over. . .Let me know if you are interested. I can send some your way :)

Hope this helps you out.

One of my new favs is www.Tea-Addiction.com but they didn’t make your list. (They’re new…probably why). I’m glad Adagio also made your list…they have great teas at good prices.

I just added them to the list after seeing your comment. Thanks!

Also, if you haven’t already, check out www.enjoyingtea.com. I really liked their prices and selection.

Laaaaaaame!
SpecialTeas had a nice range of Indian teas and really good prices. If Teavana is going to officially usurp them, they might as well expand their range of non-scented/flavored/blended teas. Gah.
