Fortnum & Mason tea?

Does anyone know where to buy Fortnum & Mason tea in L.A. or Orange County?

  1. I've seen a small selection of F&M tea bags at Marukai in Gardena.

    1. LA: Ye Olde King's Head in Santa Monica
      OC: British Grocer in Fullerton

      1. The Continental Shop in Santa Monica
        Ye Olde King's Head (as said before)
        The Friar Tuck Shop in Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks
        Seen it now and again in Whole Foods
        Try Cost Plus, too

        1. Sax Fifth Avenue has the pretty good supply for when I run out.

              I have. Service was prompt but the shipping charges were ludicrous.

                I have been ordering stuff from them recently. Their shipping costs were different then a couple months ago. I called them and they said that its based on cost now, not necessarily weight. It actually works out to be more cost effective in my view.

                I bite the bullet and order from them once a year, if I'm not going to go to London that year. It's worth it -- the wrapping is very fine and everything stays quite fresh. There is nothing quite like their strawberry tea, if you add milk and sugar. Rose petal jelly. Lime marmalade. Sigh.

                You still can't get all the amazing goodies you can in person, like every kind of mustard god ever made.

                1. re: nl06

                  Yes but shipping costs are outrageous. Try Williams Sonoma. They have Royal Blend and English breakfast loose tea but no Assam Superb or Regents blend, unfortunately.
