Tea Companies

About This Page: This page contains various on-line tea companies from which we (the SororiTEA Sisters) have enjoyed tea … because, we aren’t just tea reviewers, first and foremost, we’re tea consumers!  We drink tea, therefore, we purchase it!  (Yes, sometimes we do get free samples from companies that want us to review their products.  But we still purchase quite a bit of tea too!)

We have included some personal commentary about the tea companies, based upon our own experiences with these companies.   This information might include our thoughts about packaging, shipping, customer service, etc., as well as MUST TRY teas from those companies.

If you are a company that would like to be listed on this page, please contact us at sororiteasisters@gmail.com

52Teas is one of my favorite online tea vendors.  They offer a new and unique flavor every week, they offer free shipping, their packaging is resealable and easy to store, and their prices are very reasonable.  Did I mention they have free shipping?  Many of their teas are ‘limited edition’ teas – available for only a short time, so it’s hard to solidly recommend a tea from them, but my all-time favorite from 52Teas is Chelsea’s Chocolate Banana Rooibos.”  ~LiberTEAS

“The reason I LOVE 52 Teas is because the owner FRANK is not only creative with EVERY blend – he’s also very active online, markets his products awesomely, is very friendly, has a great sense of humor, and responds to customer questions in a timely manner.  I have enjoyed most of the teas I have tried from 52 Teas thus far.” ~TeaEqualsBliss

Adagio Teas

Adagio is a FUN company to interact with online!  They have great customer service!  I really LOVE they give their customers the chance to try their hand at blending teas.  The Signature Blend Page offers ENDLESS possibilities!  I especially like Zack Luye’s TeaV webisode.  There are also many ways to save and earn “free” tea.” ~ TeaEqualsBliss

Ahmad Tea has some nice, bold bagged teas!  Their Media and Press Kit Information is very nicely put together.  The deep green color they use in their logo, labels, and press kits is very eye-catching.  The art work on their Exclusive English Teas is wonderful!  The new packaging is great!  I really like the fact they support orphanages in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus.  They have also supported Tsunami Relief in Sri Lanka and support educational and medical projects in African and Asia.  A very nice company! ~TeaEqualsBliss


“Ordering from Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea is a bit like an adventure – a FUN adventure!  The packages arrive quickly, I love the funky designs on their labels and with my order of series 3, I got a cool patch!  Like I said, fun!  But all the fun really wouldn’t matter much if the teas weren’t amazing.  Fortunately, the teas are beyond amazing!”  ~LiberTEAS

“Altho I cannot find these teas locally – I have been blessed with wonderful Tea Friends that have sent me some from their stashes and I think all of their teas are wonderful!  The logos and tins are neat, too!” ~ TeaEqualsBliss

Art of Tea

Art of Tea is very fine company.  Very prompt and courteous in their emails, and very fast shipping.  Plus, they give free samples based upon your order – that is to say, that they select your free sample based upon what you ordered, based upon what it appears you’d like.  I like that attention to detail.”  ~LiberTEAS

Boston Tea Company has a user-friendly website with MANY options for tea lovers.  Their customer service is wonderful and their employees are very “in-to” tea and promoting their products!  They are also very charitable and generous!” ~ TeaEqualsBliss

Design A Tea is based out of Darien Center, NY, near Darien Lake.  As a Western New York Native, I am somewhat partial to this company.  But it’s also justified because they are truly unique…you are able to literally Design your OWN tea on their website.  They also have several of their own blends and popular blends to choose from that are already blended.  They also sell custom tea favors for all occasions.  You won’t want to skip over this company!  Their correspondence is great, too!” ~TeaEqualsBliss

“I completely agree with LiberTEAS in saying Ducky Life is a wonderful company.  Their packaging is AWESOME and the names of their teas/tisanes are truly their own.  I love their logos, packaging, and website…not to mention their interaction online via social networking sites AND blogging and email.  A very memorable tea company, indeed!” ~ TeaEqualsBliss

East Pacific Tea

ESP Emporium – I really can’t say enough about this company!  They have a great website, TONS of teas to choose from, awesome customer service, an amazing online presence, and do so much to educate people on tea and spread the word about the history, benefits, and regions they come from.  Their Samplers are an excellent deal and perfect for tea beginners as well as veterans wanting to stock up!  And FREE SHIPPING on orders over $30!  Awesome! ~TeaEqualsBliss

 

eteaket Tea Boutique is a company I hadn’t even heard of until very recently, but, am I ever glad that I was ‘introduced’ to them – their teas are fantastic!” ~LiberTEAS

Georgia Tea Company is a great tea company with wonderful customer service.  The owner, Daniel Mann, is very knowledgeable with each tea and the ingredients and health benefits of each tea.  He goes above and beyond to connect with his customers.  The teas I have had so far from Georgia Tea Company are intensely scented for the most part and of very good quality and taste.” ~TeaEqualsBliss

Metropolitan Tea Company

“This is a wholesale tea company only.  However, you can find Metropolitan Teas at many fine retail establishments.  They are one of the largest suppliers to tea retailers out there, so chances are, if you’ve had tea from more than one or two places, you’ve already tried a Metropolitan Tea but just didn’t know it!”  ~LiberTEAS

 

Monterey Bay Spice Company offers many things on their website but I am very impressed with their loose leaf tea selection – a well rounded selection of teas including black and green teas, hand crafted herbal teas and fruit tea blends.  They have good customer service and a easy-to-navigate website.” ~ TeaEqualsBliss

Rishi Tea

“Rishi’s Marketing Department is wonderful!  Their Customer Service is great!  Their online presence is remarkable!  They come out with some pretty interesting offerings!  Many people praise them for their herbals but I think their Black, Green, Oolong, and Flavored Teas are what I like best, personally!” ~TeaEqualsBliss

Talbott Teas

“The first time I tried a tea from Talbott Teas was over a year ago and it was their Chocolate Almond Allure and I instantly fell in LOVE.  A while back I was corresponding with Dr. Steven Nakisher from Talbott Teas on Facebook and he ended up sending me a few samples to try and possibly review.  I was so excited!  This was the customer service all other companies should take notes on!  They are so nice to customers and potential customers!  AND they have some really awesome ways to promote their products!  Their website is wonderful and their labels and tins are clean, crisp, and tastefully done!  Overall, Talbott Teas, is probably one of my favorite tea companies!  They seem to have the complete package!” ~ TeaEqualsBliss

“I love, love, love Townshend’s Tea Company!  They have a tea shop in Portland, OR (and in Bend, OR, although I haven’t been to that one!) on Alberta Street (I LOVE Alberta Street!) and … imagine going into a coffee shop (you know the one I’m thinking of, don’t you?) … now imagine it cooler, with lots of lounge chairs and sofas and COLOR… and now… imagine them serving TEA instead of coffee!  That’s Townshend’s.  One of the coolest places in Portland!”  ~LiberTEAS

Here at SororiTEA Sisters we were among the first people to write reviews about Trump Tea!  Yes, Trump…as in Donald.  I was overly pleased with the flavors, aroma, taste, quality, and concept of Trump Teas!  I will not lie…I AM a Trump Tea Fan!  I really hope they come out with additional teas very soon!  The flavors are of the best in a bag that I have tried! ~TeaEqualsBliss
