Looking for a special tea

Does anyone know where I can find Harney & Sons tea? Prefereably downtown or thereabouts, or the Peninsula. Need to buy some for a client gift. Thanks!

  1. I should add we've already checked the usual places, Bristol Farms, Andronicos, Whole Foods, any and all tea shops we can find.

      1. re: SanseiDesigns

        Apparently not enough time to do that....

      2. I don't know who has that particular brand of tea but this link is a pretty comprehensive list of tea merchants, you might want to see if there's anyone you missed calling -http://www.teaguide.net/tearoomscalif...

        1. I think they sell it at Williams Sonoma. Pretty sure I've seen it at the one on Chestnut.

            Yes - they sell these at Williams Sonoma, but the flavors might be limited.

          2. Macy's ?

            But you might want to call and confirm they what they have in stock since a number of the items on their website seem to be discontinued.

            1. Macy's has a gift box of four mini tins of Haney and Sons teas.

              1. Try calling Harney and Sons and ask who carries it:
                888-427-6398

                1. Thanks for all the responses. Will send out a search party tomorrow to all the locations noted above!

                  1. I think Leland Tea on Sutter has some boxes of Harney.

                    There are plenty of interesting teas you can substitute though.

                    1. Out of curiosity, what makes Harney & Sons such good tea? Is there a particular type of tea which they are famous for?

                      1. Their tea is pretty good quality. I prefer Murchies, but it's not generally available around here (a Canadian company.)
