Companies I would LOVE to try but haven't
I would love to try:
Samovar (can’t stop thinking about that Mandarin Pu-erh!)
MANTEAS (lol! I’m dying to try the bacon teas)
Rishi (I want their Genmai Matcha)
SpecialTeas (such good deals)
Upton Tea (more good deals!)
I have to try Mariage Freres! Their Marco Polo sounds amazing! I wish they had more distributors in the US. But I read on Teaviews that “The Cultured Cup” (a teashop in Dallas) sells them online and they just joined Steepster—so I’m following them (and feeling a little stalker-ish…lol).
Marco Polo is a really nice tea, IMO – especially if you like strawberries. I haven’t been able to find a retailer for Mariage Frerès here in B.C. either. It used to be sold through the Urban Tea Merchant, but they’ve since switched over to The O DOR (which is another excellent company).
Do you live near a Williams Sonoma? They carry Marco Polo in the bagged form as well as some Rishi Tea
Sweet, I’ve been looking for a way to get my hands on some Rishi tea that didn’t involve selling a kidney to pay for shipping costs. I looked up Williams-Sonoma’s stores and there is one in Vancouver apparently. The next time I’m down there I’ll have to see if I can find it. Thanks. :)
You’re welcome. I think they had about 6-8 different Rishi teas, a few blacks/white/green and one herbal. Also had Harney and Son’s, some of the popular flavors, but I’ve found those cheaper at Barnes and Noble.
