Selling teas from Dammann Frères and Butiki!

So I’ve had a great time trying new teas brands lately – two of the generally really popular ones that however ended up not really appealing to me are Dammann Frères and Butiki. I would love to see these get new homes, because they’re definitely exceptional teas, just not compatible with my tastes.

All teas were purchased in October. They’re quite fresh, as they’ve all been stored in their original bags, in individual air-tight containers in a cool, dark cupboard. They have all been sampled only once (with one exception, as noted below), which means roughly one teaspoon has been removed from each bag. I’d prefer not to split any teas, since they’re all in their original bags/tins, the amounts are fairly small to start with, and as none of these teas are wildly expensive anyway. I’ve written steeping instructions on the Dammann Frères bag labels, but all containers are otherwise pristine.

In terms of shipping, I can ship either from Italy or Sweden. If you’re not in a big hurry, I can also ship from the US (Louisiana) in March. Shipping from Europe to the US isn’t exuberant, though – it obviously depends on what kind of package you want, so it’s hard for me to give a quote, but for reference, a 2-lb/1kg package of a fair size, with tracking, is about $25/€20. Payment wise, I think PayPal is the best option.

I hope this might appeal to those of you who have had a hard time getting your hands on certain Dammann Frères or Butiki teas – like I wrote above, they’re such popular and beautiful blends it would be a shame to let them languish in my cupboard.

If you’re interested in buying something, please BOTH post a reply to this and send me a PM (if you can, otherwise follow me and we’ll sort it out) – that makes it easier to see who wants what.

How much would you sell these for?

Anna said

Hm, most of the Dammann Frères teas for roughly $2-3, I think. The Butiki teas are so very individually priced, so I’ll figure that out if someone’s interested.

I’d be interested in the Nosy Bey. Following you now.

Anna said

Sounds good, let’s PM.

Passion de Fleurs

I can wait until March so you can ship from the US. European shipping is a tad steep for me.

Follow me so we can PM please.

Anna said

Absolutely. Following you now. I’ll look into the EU shipping for you either way, so we can compare.

I am interested in the following. Following you, so we can PM.
