Bana Tea Company is an online-only tea store specializing in pu-erh tea. Linda Louie (owner and tea purveyor) sources her teas directly from the tea farmers, who pick their leaves from old-growth tea trees (from 100 to 400 years old) and harvest and dry the leaves themselves. The quality shows in Bana’s exceptional offering of […]
Canton Tea Co specialize in high quality Chinese and Taiwanese teas. Unlike other companies, Canton Tea Co buy direct from the tea farmers and order in small batches on a seasonal basis. In other words, they’re a great place to look for this season’s freshest tea. Based in London, they ship worldwide and work hard […]
Chicago Tea Garden may be the new kid on the block, but they’re strutting a very interesting collection of teas. Where else do you find pu-erh teas aged in citrus fruits alongside New Zealand’s finest oolong teas?
Copco recently put out a range of innovative teaware, including infusers, travel mugs and kettles. I’m particularly fond of their travel mug, which is remarkably cheap, stainless steel tumbler with a nifty twist-to-stop steeping feature.
Life in Teacup is a newcomer to the scene, but owner Gingko Seto has put together an exquisite set of specialty teas, including an excellent range of oolong teas.
Mark T Wendell Tea Company has been importing tea into the U.S.A. since 1904. With such a long heritage, Mark T Wendell Tea Company still boasts an excellent range of teas.

Though I personally prefer my tea in loose leaf form, their silken tea pouches are great for any gourmet tea lover who needs the ease of a teabag but doesn’t want to sacrifice quality. Their loose leaf range is […]
Narien Teas might not have the largest offering, but I am consistently impressed with their teas. They stock my favourite Earl Grey, a lovely loose leaf pu-erh and kilinoe, a green tea from Hawaii.
Get your green tea straight from Japan with O-Cha.com, the internet’s premier Japanese green tea specialist. My first purchase from O-Cha was, at that time, my most expensive tea purchase ever. But it was worth every cent. If you’ve ever tasted high quality green tea, you’ll understand exactly what sets gourmet teas apart from your […]
Teas Etc is one of my favourite online tea stores. Their range of 100+ teas covers pretty much every common variety of tea, but also includes some very special rarities. Black tea lovers should check out their three World Championship-winning teas: Ceylon OP1, Assam Reserve and Golden Monkey Organic. Below, I have reviewed a few […]
