Maybe their store prices are different than their website prices?
I've done many price comparisons of tea to tea, between the Adagio and Teavana websites. It is true that Teavana is more expensive, but I don't know that I would let a 1-3 dollar average price difference keep me from trying their teas. Especially when the difference in price can sometimes mean difference in taste. However, that is highly
dependent on opinion of course. The only direct taste comparison I've had between them is the dragonwell. Which Teavana's unforgivable 2 cents more per cup dragonwell price was the preference of my taste buds. Though they were both prepared by different people.. so.. too many variables to set the statement in stone perhaps.
Edit: I apologize for the sarcasm in this message, I just appreciate both tea vendors.
