Looking for tea in Gainesville? Mother Earth has the largest selection of Republic of Tea in town. It also has a lot of “green” brands and has a limited selection of loose leaf teas in bulk, including Hibiscus tea (you don’t see that very often). Good pricing on RoT. They even carry a few hard to find RoT like the Cocoa Coconut and the Double Green.
Gainesville has a very limited selection of stores carrying high end teas. Fresh Market has a good selection of Republic of Tea, Adagio, Two Leaves and a Bud, Nuni, Stash, Tazo, etc. I think it’s the only place to buy Adagio in town. At this time, they don’t carry loose leaf tea by the ounce, but they have several cans of loose leaf by Adagio and other brands. While you are there, run next door and check out Kitchen and Spice, which has the biggest selection of loose leaf bulk black teas in town.
One of the better places in Gainesville Florida to buy loose leaf tea. They have mostly black tea in stock, but they also carry a few rooibos, including the Great Lakes company’s “Green Rooibos Sunsplash”. They also have a limited selection of Republic of Tea and bulk coffee.
