I'm a huge fan of Mariage Freres Teas, which I used to find at Dean & DeLuca in Soho. They can no longer get them - or so they say - and I only find them when I return to San Francisco to see family. Does anyone know where to find them in Manhattan or Brooklyn?
If you don't know this tea, it's amazingly aromatic and very tastey (my favorites: Marco Polo, Ruschka, Eros, Buddha Bleu) and have the most beautiful packaging which makes them great for gift giving.
Thanks so much, I love this service!
