Can I find the products from the website in your stores?
The tea selection is the same on line as it is in our stores. However the selection of teaware (Teapots, cups etc) may vary. In both the stores and warehouse there are regularly new arrivals and the quantity of unique or rare objects in our collection means that the selection available in our stores may be quite different from that of the online store.
