Tea Companies That Offer Sample Sizes?

Recently I have started exploring the vast expanse that is different flavored tea. Some of this exploration has resulted in my getting stuck with an ounce or so of tea that either I don’t like at all or just won’t drink that often. Companies like The Persimmon Tree and Adagio Teas offer small quantities of tea so that you can get a feel for it before going and ordering it by the ounce.

So my question is this, what other tea companies offer these small sample amount selections for their tea?

Upton Tea offers their samples for very low prices.

Also, try Den’s Tea Green Tea Sampler: http://www.denstea.com/bnew-to-dens-teab-c-377.html For $3 you get a nice assortment of tea samples. Plus you’ll get the $3 back with your next order of $15 or more with them.

Edited to add: I also occasionally sell samplers from various companies based on what I happen to have on hand. I didn’t think of myself before when I originally wrote this post … because, I don’t always have the samplers available. Right now, I have just one sampler box available: http://liberteas.teatra.de/store/products/upcycling-a-box-while-sharing-some-tea/ Around 20 teas (I am stating 20 teas, but, I prefer to underpromise and overdeliver so there will be at least 20 in the box, and probably a few more than 20) for just $25 including shipping.

She has some amazing boxes!

Thank you always for your kind words. It’s nice to have a “fan.” Hope you don’t mind that I called you that. :)

Culinary Teas has lots of reasonably priced sample sizes—they were my “gateway vendor” that I suppose led to my full-blown tea addiction.
