Loose leaf tea

I've decided to branch out from my usual teabags and try some decent loose-leaf stuff - no point in having beautiful teapots if they're never used properly!

I've seen Limster's lovely thread on Postcard Teas, which I will visit soon, but I wondered if anyone else can recommend places in London to buy good-quality tea, or anywhere online? I'm interested more in black teas for everyday drinking than green/white etc.

I've seen in Waitrose that Twinings have started doing £7 bags of loose tea, but I'm not convinced.

Also if anyone knows a good brand of masala chai, bagged or otherwise, I'd be very grateful for that, too. The bags I got from the Indian section in Tesco are like bathwater.

Thanks :)
