My next order should be....
I am almost done with my latest order of tea.
Any recommendations of where I should order form next? I am only going to order from one site but a bunch of different types of tea. Loose leaf only.
If you are looking to get a lot of samples for a decent price, some good places are Adagio (http://www.adagio.com/), Zen Tea (http://zentealife.com/ – they have a 30% code right now summer2013) and Upton Tea (http://www.uptontea.com/). All have generous sample sizes.
Everyone loves Butiki (http://www.butikiteas.com/), but I haven’t tried them yet.
The ‘Try Me’ samplers from Della Terra are pretty awesome.
Teavivre (www.teavivre.com) or Verdant (www.verdanttea.com) if you are into unflavoured. Butiki (www.butikiteas.com) or Davids (www.davidstea.com) if you’re into flavoured. I know that 52Teas (www.52teas.com) and Della Terra (www.dellaterrateas.com) are also popular for flavoured teas but I personally find them disappointing. You may not though!
I would recommend TeaVitality (http://teavitality.com). Organic and Fair Trade teas available only.
Verdant’s 5 for $5 sample contains some of the best tea I’ve ever tasted (unflavored). It’s ‘s a great deal and smart business – I can’t imagine not coming back for more.
I have a lot to look at..
I was thinking about getting stuff from Adagio, i have not ordered from them in a while. But i will check out the other sites as well.
thanks for all your recommendations.
You didn’t say what type of tea you were looking for.
For unflavored teas:
TeaVivre is fantastic for Chinese tea, but has limited variety.
Upton has a super selection of unflavored tea all with sample sizes. As just two examples, they sell a dozen different Keemun teas, and several dozen Darjeelings.
For flavored teas:
While Adagio has some unflavored teas I think of them as specializing in flavored teas. I think Della Terra flavored teas are higher quality than Adagio but they are significantly more expensive, so I tend to buy Adagio, but the choice depends on your budget.
