Where can I buy samplers of different brands from?
Is there a perfurmed court equivalent for teas?
I don’t know of anywhere that carries different brands unless you happen to have a great brick and mortar store with a large selection of teas from different companies. Individual companies sometimes offer sample sizes of their own teas. www.uptontea.com and www.harney.com comes to mind. Many smaller companies also offer sample selections bundled together, but, as with the “big” companies, it is only their own teas.
It may be easier if we knew what type of tea you are looking for. Black, Green, Pierh, Dian Hong and more. Narrowing the field will probably get you in the right direction to some stores.
There are a lot of companies that sell Rooibos. Teavana and David’s Tea have some good ones but my all out favorite is a green rooibos from Simpson and Vail, Cedarburg Harvest. Their website is www.svtea.com and they sell good quality tea at reasonable prices. With most of their teas you can buy 1 oz samples.
If you happen to have a Teavana or David’s tea in your area, you can buy any amount of each flavour from the. To taste each new tea that comes out, I usually buy $2 worth/12g of it to try instead of committing to a large quantity. Unfortunately their samplers online are more expensive, but advent calendars of tea are often popular around this time of year and are fairly easy to find.
