So I tried Adagio's Ti Guan Yin....

Owes its flavors to oxidation levels between green & black tea.

8) What a strangely attractive idea...

My favorite is the adagio for the reason the leaves seem fuller.
Wow, makes me wonder what brand you have been using.

4 minutes is a bit long, as I know, you could steep the tea with ~100 Centigrade water just 10 or more seconds, then pour the tea water in another small cup immediately, and drink with the cup, then you could feel the full fragrance of the tea. :)

Yeah they are. I think some Targets carry some of their stuff, and I think some Whole Foods do. I've not seen them in stores in my area, mind, but I guess others have. Xine might know or be able to find out more specifics.

We sell some of our clear top tins (which are available in only certain loose-leaf varieties: ti kuan yin, dragonwell, silver needle, darjeeling #22/summer darjeeling, fruit medley herbal, organic rooibos, kukicha...I believe that's it) as well as our teabags (the same selection you can find online) at some retailers- I know on the East Coast, our stuff is in A&P, Whole foods, Wegman's Grocers, Balducci's. As for Targ-it, I think we might have some of our teaware and teas in some stores, perhaps more in the midwest than by me (I haven't seen any on the East Coast/NJ/NY area); I think I saw Space Samurai write up our glass mug and infuser which he found at target.

Other than larger retailers, we have our stuff at smaller tea rooms, shops, cafes, and specialty stores and the like. :)

Wait...you're telling me that Washington Square Mall has a tea shop?!?

Meh, I doubt I'd go anyway. WSM is just too far...better stores are much closer to me.

Yes, it does. It's been there a touch over a year now. They seem fairly good, I can send you a scan of their menu.

I've seen Adagio's stuff in a couple of Harris Teeters around here. They don't have much. Just some Dragonwell and Genmai Cha.
