Shopping for Tea…

Well, it’s getting near that time again. This year, I’m trying to decide between an order from Adagio Teas or an order from Stash Tea. The following is my thinking on the order. What’s yours?

    If I Order from Stash
(100 grams = 3.52739619 ounces)
Ceylon Sonata (4oz) $7.00 Ceylon Breakfast (100g) $6.75
Darjeeling #22 (8oz) $17.00   Christmas Morning (100g)
(blend of Darjeeling First Flush, Indian Assam, China Keemun and Yunnan, southern Indian teas, Formosa Oolong and Jasmine Flower)
English Breakfast (4oz) $12.00   Organic Ambootia Darjeeling (100g) $9.95
Dragonwell Green (4oz) $12.00   English Breakfast (100g) $5.95
Apricot Green (4oz) $6.00   Lemon Myrtle Black (100g) $7.50

      Fusion Green and White (100g) $5.95
      Premium Green (100g) $5.95
      Fusion Red and White (100g) $5.95
============================= =======   ============================= =======
TOTAL (10×4oz ~~ 1134g) $82.00   TOTAL (12×100g ~~ 42.3 oz) $83.55

Shipping (based on the amount) would be free with Adagio. Shipping would be just about $10 with Stash, but there would be a free gift (last time it was a mug). I think, even with the shipping, Stash is the better value, and seems to have the wider selection. Adagio has cooler containers.
