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.

In hand: Lady Londonderry (black with strawberry & lemon) & Granville Island Blend (blend of 4 blacks plus strawberry). Both yummy!

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 orĀ  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.

    It’s something you have to do. I hit up record stores when I’m on tour, and I need more vinyl like I need a hole in a speaker.
