Same here. I just bought a sampler of 8 different teas. They are good teas. I am not an experienced tea drinker but I know I will not be going to target for tea anymore.

I'll pass this motion. Teavana is very pricey but they never disappoint. I've tried others to my dissatisfaction. Lupicia is pretty good too and their tins are less expensive.

Teavana to me is like Starbucks hahaha Bringing knowledge to people that could in other ways Never know what Quality is, But they do wonders in malls, and for the basic Tea drinker, Me, there chinese tea ( if you can track down the roots of there names they call them) isnt up to par. Normally when you buy chinese loose leaf over seas, Its That season, and if its a little after a season or so old- its gone. Then you see other companys sell it for somewhat more! ( always check for dates if your able you will taste the difference and thank me)

But nothing wrong with the people who Enjyo Teavana, a bit pricey is an understatement but Im extremely biased on Chinese tea so theres my 2 little pennies

yeah, I gave up on Teavanna a couple months ago because the one close to me stopped carrying gunpowder green tea (my go to green tea) and the next closest price one Sencha, I do not like. The next closest price one after that is around 11.50 for 2 ounces which is too rich for me. So I started using Earthfare, if your in the SouthEast you might have one, their based out of Asheville NC. I ran into another place on Church Street here in Charleston I want to check out called tea empourium located in a wealthy neighborhood here. I'm curious to see what they have.

stopped into a Teavana this weekend, spent some money, and am happy with the results.

I primarily drink black tea, and their Black Dragon Pearl and Copper Knot Hongcha are both excellent

the almost biscotti is good too

My problem is I don't know much about teas so a place like Teavana that I can walk into is invaluable. I know I am paying extra but I am willing to pay a bit extra because of my ignorance I try to look at some of the sites that you guys have posted and I just plain don't know what I'm looking for. I suppose as I get more experienced that will change but until then Teavana here I come. I just wish it wasn't a hour away from home

My only problem with Teavana, other than price, is that they have too much fruit in their teas. They are almost all blended or flavored with fruit. Saying that, the My Morning Mate has almost replaced coffee for me. Delicious stuff and at least as much caffiene as coffee. I wish it wasn't so darn expensive.

If you guys are ever in Charleston check out the charleston tea plantation on Wadamaw Island or their store on meeting street across from the visitors center. Their the only comercial tea garden in America. They make tea for bigelow too. As well as firefly vodka.

Stephen takes good care of his customers and has a nice selection of aged Pu-erhs. If he doesn't have what you are looking for he can usually find it.

Thanks to everyone for the recommendations. We specialize in pu-erh teas but also carry a nice selection of black, green, white, and oolong teas. If we don't have a pu-erh tea that you are interested in, we will make every effort to acquire it for you at the best possible price. In addition, if you find a US-based pu-erh price cheaper than mine, we will match it or beat it.

My wife and I run a small business that take care of after the normal business day is done in our regular jobs and on the weekend. Despite that, I think that we provide some of the best customer service on the internet.

We would love to be your tea source of choice on the Internet. Let us know if you have any questions.

Best regards,
Steve
