Best Online Tea Stores

Tea is often easy to find in grocery stores, but many people are getting sick of grocery store quality teabags, which are typically comprised of low-quality broken tea leaves. Since local tea shops aren’t as prevalent in the Western world as they are in Asia, it’s usually easier to simply look for tea online.

This becomes even more true when looking for harder to source styles of tea, such as puer tea.

If you’re having difficulty sourcing quality tea online, then consider giving one of our recommended tea vendors a try.

Reeds Handmade Incense

In full disclosure, we are associated with Reeds Handmade Incense.

On the other hand, you can be assured that you will receive customer quality care from them.


Tao of Tea

While many of their teas are probably mid-grade, Tao of Tea is a reputable tea vendor with a decent selection of teas. I would consider them worth trying, as they sometimes have some interesting teas.

Yunnan Sourcing

Fans of puer tea will know how hard it is to source quality material in the Western market.

Yunnan Sourcing is one of the few Western-facing puer tea vendors with a proven reputation.

They also stock other types of tea, including oolong, green, and black teas.
