I’ve gotten a few good teas at this Tea Desire and nice teaware like travel cups.
Since the minimum you can buy is 50g of loose tea, I was hesitant to buy various teas from them, whereas if I could buy like 20g I would purchase to try.
One male clerk there I found very knowledgeable and figured out my tastes and recommended a really good teas to me that I was willing to buy at 50g.
However a few times I was there, there was a female sales clerk who was pretty mean and pushy that I get large bags of tea. One time she insisted I needed to smell and purchase one specific tea, which I declined (as I knew I wouldn’t like it and it’s not what I was there for) and she got all “Whats wrong with you, who doesn’t like Irish cream tea?”
I complained once as I signed up for the newsletter and got an email about a sale – like % off all chocolate teas. No small print of tea quantity in the email. I go to the store and I’d find out the sale is for 100g or 1kg of tea. Not cool.
