This week’s web round-up is all about discovering and purchasing new teas. The web can be a cornucopia of tea sites but these are a few standouts that sell high quality and mostly affordable teas.
Finger Lakes Tea Company
An amazing assortment of high quality Chinese teas that are affordably priced. I’ve been to this shop and it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in New York wine country. They also do tastings for $2 and offer an extensive dim sum menu.
Their selection of teaware would make a nice gift especially accompanied by one of their great teas. Two of my favorites to cook with are their blood orange and chocolate chai teas. They are full of flavor and have great packaging.
The best part about Tea Pigs are their samples for $2.50 and the fun packaging. You can order a variety of teas to try and you can even order certain teas in bulk.
Aroma Tea Shop
This great company based out of San Francisco has everything a tea lover could wish for. Their prices are fare considering the high quality and unique selection. One thing of note is the clearance section on their site. They offer up to 50% off on premium and 1st flush teas.
This list wouldn't be complete without mention this cute tea store located in Virginia Beach. They have a clean and easy to navigate website offering great prices. Selling everything from black to herbal teas and fun brewing equipment. They offer $4.99 flat rate shipping for orders under $100.
