I was thinking trying other website, less known. I like to give the small guy a chance.

Is it a smart move ?

Yes, I do. The stores where I buy tea discontinue certain flavors from time to time, so when that happens, it's necessary to look the company up online, and order directly from them. Some stores will special-order for customers, but they require them to buy 1/2 dozen boxes/cans, whatever, a bulk purchase. That's not necessary when buying online.

I can't always find my favorite teas in the store, so I buy from Stash and Twinings when they have deals.

Harney & Sons, without a doubt. Their First Flush Darjeeling is always my favorite tea of the year.

It's not often when "the best of the best" is totally affordable, as well. (Their bagged tea isn't "best of the best" -- but their sourced-from-the-plantation teas are.)

I buy a LOT of mine from Amazon for cheaper than I could get from their own website. Stash is my favorite. LOVE their herbals!!!
