Default Online tea...

So i started looking for a different place to buy tea. As i hear tea is supposed to be cheap but in my mind teavana isnt a cheap pleace to buy tea. So with simple Google searches for loose leaf tea the only places i can find seem to be way more expensive the teavana. Am i missing something or is tea expensive?

Those are the two I have used. I just was looking at Stash tea however I have not used them yet. I had great service with Adagio.

I regularly drink a Chi blend from teavana and a Jasmine. I recently tried a oolong that i really enjoyed but at $15 for 2OZ, i was hopping to find it cheaper elsewhere. i will definitely check out the sites listed guys, thanks!

www.jingteashop.com
They are in China but deliver quickly and have great prices and stock I can't get elsewhere.

http://www.sevencups.com/
Chinese and Taiwan tea and they have a nice selection as well.

www.thefragrantleaf.com
Better prices and selection on taiwan oolong than others.

Not a fan of teavana although their roobios is OK.

www.puerhshop.com is where I frequent. He deals mostly in, you guessed it, puerh.
Delicious stuff. comparable to cigars in a way. The stuff gets better with age for crying out loud.
