Anyway, I'm pretty sure that I'm going with Adagio. However, I do have another question...
I've never seen Adagio teas in stores. Things that I read online assure me of their reputation, but nothing "official" such as physical tea-in-hand at the local grocier, etc. I see that they run a wholesale program, but I can't seem to find them anywhere other than adagio.com...
So, how can I be sure that (about Adagio)...
1. Their tea is safe (eg. no lead from China)
1a. Isn't there some FDA thing for imported food items?
2. They are who they say they are
It is particularly reassuring to find physical product outside of the online shelves, but anything would be helpful. I did find their media page w/ articles from various newspapers and magazines... And according to their official company blog Tea I'm probably treating this with a degree or two of too much paranoia, but it's food I'm buying, and i want to be sure I'm safe from anything life threatening. A poor flavor choice is another matter of course.
Or should I just contact Adagio directly?

#1a - as Olivier already responded.

You can certainly contact Adagio directly. Go to the link in the upper right hand corner, you will find the email or you can live chat.
