Now that TeaZone is gone, are there any other tea shops in the Somerville, Arlington area, or North of Boston?

    By coincidence, I found this business card in my collection today - www.nottinghall.com

    Have no experience with the product, but the website has a list of tearooms in Mass and the rest of New England...

      I buy my tea online from Harney and Sons. It's the best! Although far away, their tea house in Millerton NY is beautiful.

        i like Upton Tea; they ship within frequently that day; you will have your tea the next day.

          Another vote for Upton - they have a HUGE selection, good quality teas, and you can order sample sizes to try different varieties. As cambridgedoctpr says, local shipping is super-speedy.

            I was a TeaZoner, but moved to Upton.

        I buy from Upton, but last summer at the Lexington Farmer's Market, I picked up some Notting Hall tea (Dragonflower blend) and it's one of my favorites.
