Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea!

ME TOO!!!!

Rijje said

The can of those are so pretty!
And I only heard positive comment on those =)

Yeah!!! I LOVE tins so that’s twice as nice!!!

Cofftea said

Great tea (or so I’ve read), but I refuse to buy from them because of their name. Fortunately they don’t have anything too drastically different from another company so I can find something similar somewhere else.

There are hardly any companies that stock their tea here so I’d would like to try everyone, but in particular Mariage Freres & Adagio!

I can send you some Adagio stuff next week…PM me with your interests and info if you want

And the biggest right now is Samovar.. but it’s sooo expensiveeee..

Cofftea said

I agree Bethany, but I’m coveting the pu erh yixing set. That’s a pretty good value.

I really want to try some stuff from Kusmi, but the sampler I want is out of stock. :( Caved and just bought big tins of a couple teas. Yum!

Other than that, I want to try stuff from:
Adagio Bought some samples. :D
Upton
Rishi
52teas Bought a couple kinds and am waiting for them to come. :)
Harney & Sons Got samples of a couple kinds from JacquelineM :D
Mariage Freres Got a sample of Marco Polo from JacquelineM and am in love at first sip!
Samovar
Lupicia Bought a few kinds that sounded especially yummy! Plus the catalog with the samples is greatly anticipated.

And I’m waiting on stuff that I can’t wait to try from:
Den’s Tea (Result: Yummy and authentic! ♥)
Golden Moon (Awesome sampler with some VERY delicious finds!)
Andrews & Dunham (YAY S2!)

:D

Erin said

I actually just ordered from them yesterday! Thanks, though! :)

Cofftea said

What did you think of Den’s???

I love Den’s!! Even though they’re on the west coast, and I’m on the east coast, it took less than a week for their stuff to get here both times I ordered from them.

I love their tea, too! (Well, except the one I sent you. I hope you got it!!) It’s so authentic, and really brings me back to my time in Japan, and it’s definitely high quality too. :)
