lower priced loose tea
Ive been buying my teas from places like teavana and i wanted to know if theres anything more affordable but equally as good. Thanks!
Most of the good online tea shops have better quality tea and are cheaper than Teavana. What kind of tea are you interested in? Depending on what you drink – flavored, unflavored, greens, blacks, puerhs, etc. – I can offer some suggestions.
Teavana has in my opinion lower quality tea than many smaller vendors. Try Mandala Tea at www.shopmandalatea.com.
The answer would depend what country you are in due to shipping/currency.
For US, Upton is pretty cheap http://www.uptontea.com/
Affordable tea price and good tea flavour can be pretty subjective.
I would suggest you set a price range first. For example, $10 -$15 (per 50g) is an affordable range for a green Oolong tea you are going to brew daily. Then, you can try to buy some tea samplers or the smallest package (within your price range) from different suppliers. Then, you will be able to compare the different tea quality from suppliers and find your favourite one.
It’s always fun during the process of searching your loved tea. :)
