Can anyone recommend and good on-line supplier of loose tea. I regularly visit Whittards' stores but I'm wondering if there is a cheaper alternative, with similar quality of tea.

 

Currently enjoying Tippy Golden Yunnan, Nepal Shangri-la, and Dragonwell Long King Green Tea.

 

Any recommendations welcome.

Check Atkinson's website. I buy all my loose tea there. Excellent quality. Their Earl Grey scented and Lapsong is the best I've tasted.

I am a fan of Darjeeling Tea and have been ever since I thought that I was intolerant to dairy produce...

 

So for the last twenty-five years I have been using one of these sites... Originally only Thunderbolt, but the other two have come along since, and there was another one... I can't remember what it's called though. For the first couple of years the tea from Thunderbolt was always ridiculously cheap, although they seemed to include the paper bag in the weight... Even so cheap... Then they must have caught on, and the prices shot up, despite my criticism of their weighing method, they apologised and then ignored me, so I looked for others.

These online shops are mostly in Darjeeling... My latest purchase arrived last week from Teabox "Arya Ruby (Spring) Darjeeling Black Tea", it arrived in a few days, in 5 100gm vacuum sealed bags, and there were 5 10gm free samples included.

 

The tea is sublime.

 

Edit: There is also a good tea shop in Lincoln: http://www.imperialteas.co.uk but I haven't used them for years.

Buyer beware

None of the recommended suppliers have been in touch

Try some local tea providers before spending offshore

Is this the website you're talking about

https://thecoffeehopper.com/shop/#global-body-tag%22

 

It seems fantastically good value £7/250g

 

I'll have to try some of this next time I need some tea (although I've got shelves full of various different teas at the moment that I need to make some headway with:whistle:)
