Online? Our markets are full of bagged, but I wanted to find some fresh. We used to have a shop here, but as everything on this island they shut down really fast.

There are places online. There is also a shop at the Ala Moana Mall on Oahu. I'm sure you can mail order it from there.

I like stashtea.com. They they sell loose tea and bagged. I've never had a problem with flavors or anything.

I have been in there many, many years ago , but I think they shut down. It was on a corner downstairs. It was floor to ceiling and had scales like you were in a Chinese shop. So cool.

I love this place. The blueberry tea is so smooth and the black chocolate is like hot chocolate without the calories. Very smooth also. The english breakfast, yum. I love black tea but they have all kinds.

Thanks for all the links! I have been drinking green tea and frankly I'm sick of it lol I bought a tea infuser when I was on the mainland and found it the other day, so I want to put it to good use! I'm going to try out the flavors mentioned first :)

Annie's Tea Time in CA has great loose teas and all the accessories (tea cozies, tea pots, loose tea tins, etc). Get it at: anniesteatime.com. My favorites are the Summer Strawberry fruit infusion and Fruit Burst fruit infusion, but they have lots of black and green teas in amazing flavors as well.

I grew some mint (peppermint, spearmint, & chocolate mint) this last summer, then dried it. It made fabulous tea this winter. I also dropped a handful of fresh leaves in the iced tea pitcher. It was really refreshing with the boring Lipton tea bags I use for the iced tea.

Good luck on your search!

Well I think I am except for today. I followed behind some tourists who bought $800 worth of fabric and a service to make shirts. Holy cow! I walk out with my $40 purchase and she made a comment like 'I should be more like her' to her family. I was holding it without a bag and had my patterns in a zip lock so I could match stuff up.

She stopped me and went through all my patterns and fabric. lol It wasn't creepy but funny. I should of asked if she wanted to get a drink later. lol I always miss those moments where I could make a new friend. I'm going to try harder on that.

Thanks for all the links that came after I said thanks!

Pat if you like Ginger I found some ginger candy and it was really good. At first it was and? And then it got really HOT! I'll go find the web site.

Bold flavors, blueberry, chocolate, hazelnut, etc. Never bitter, never old. It is the only tea I buy. I don't like green or white tea. Don't like herbal either. This place as all kinds but I can vouch for the black teas.
