Where to buy samples, I live in EU, ...where I used to buy closed shop.
Looking to buy samples. I am in Europe. Looking for suggestions?
TeaMania and Terre de ciel for puerh if I remember correctly. Green tea Guru in the UK I think.
What-cha for non-blend teas. It’s from UK, but never a problems before. It can be tricky nowadays though.
I am Europe based too :)
Depends what are you exactly searching for :)
What-cha has a nicely curated selection with 25g samples but is (unfortunately) no longer within the EU, so you might have to pay additional taxes, import fees etc. when your package crosses the border.
Looking for continental alternatives I recently came across the Netherlands-based Hotsoup, which has a varied selection of mostly rather affordable loose leaf tea, with 25g and 50g samples, including a few interesting unusual ones (smoked African black tea, Indian heicha, etc). Shipping’s very reasonable as well. Haven’t tried enough of their teas to fully recommend them, but most of my first order turned out pretty ok.
Might want to check their store out as well. As said above it mostly depends on what you’re looking for.
I tried a Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling bought sample favorite one so far.
Would like to find another M.H.D. to buy sample or some tea similar to it.
It’s from the UK. I know it’s out of EU, but I don’t think it should affect you anyway so far. The sample is well, maybe too small; but it’s only one I know and carries M.H.D.
