ISO Loose Teas in Boston Area

I want to make some Russian Caravan Tea to last through the winter. Years ago I used to get it at Fortnum & Masons and I suspect that some shops in Boston may carry their cans, but I think it would be better and fresher if I made it myself.

The recipe found on line recommends 1 part lapsang souchong, 1 part black tea,and 2 parts oolong tea. A good black tea would be Qimen (also spelled "Keemun"), but Assam or Ceylon would also do.

I believe that Christina in Inman Square carries loose teas, but are there any other shops deserving of a visit?
