Feeding the obsession
I have more tea than I know what to do with. But not stopping by tea stores while on vacation was simply not an option.
And there are several good e-tea-tailers offering Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday deals:
Now through Tuesday:
Boston Tea Company: 30% off entire order, free gift with purchase.
Kally Teas: All tea orders will be doubled.
Harney & Sons: free shipping
Della Terra Teas: 40% off midnight through 10 pm, select teas 60% off 6-8 am, 3-4 pm, 9-10 pm (EST)
Friday thru Monday:
Teajo: Free shipping on $25 or more, 30-45% off teas and tea makers.
Adagio: free shipping
Butiki Tea: $20 free with purchase of $40, no shipping charge for the free portion.
The Tea Merchant: 25% off everything in the store, including teaware with code “25SPECIAL”
Simpson & Vail: Free shipping over $25
I have purchased from all of these merchants. Adagio is the one I have the least experience with but they all have customer service that ranges from good to great. All have good teas, some better than others. I generally purchase blacks, usually flavored or darjeelings. Oolongs are fast becoming a favorite as well, especially from Butiki and The Tea Merchant. So if you want reviews of any of the teas, I can’t speak to greens/whites/rooibos/herbals.
I will say that if you are purchasing as a gift, The Tea Merchant has fantastic packaging. Tissue wrapped packets, old fashioned wax seals, etc.
