I have to say; i'm really, really sad that Adagio made the switch to bags. I loved them. I placed a big order last week, and purposely bought the smaller sizes, b/c most were gifts- they hadn't yet switched the little order boxes to say "bags", so I assumed I'd get tins, since it said "Tins". They never sent me word that hey, we're making this switch, FYI~ and they didn't give me the 50 cent discount either- which they'll likely have done away with, but considering the circumstances... So when i got the order, only to find a mishmash of bags , I was upset. That was also weird- i ordered all 4 oz teas, but the bags are different shapes, sizes; some appear to have more, others less- one isn't even re-sealable).
I think i'm duly upset because this was a gift, and the mix-n-match bags aren't very pretty gifts, so now I'm stuck running out at the last minute to buy something else (and out a crapload that i spent on tea I can't give). I also went to the FAQ's, to see if this was announced anywhere- it's not; and in fact, they actually still have the "you're guaranteed tins" question/answer up!
But the saddest of all this, is the green factor- bags are NOT greener, not in the least. The tins are re-usable; to store more tea in, or other stuff when they're emptied. The bags have no other use, and will be tossed once emptied.
