Dear Tom,
 
I have a GREAT suggestion for your wife’s tea desire. My ex-wife and I =
were
in the same boat as you two. She loves the smell of coffee and =
graciously
tolerated my passion for it, but no matter how hard she tried, she never
developed her pallet for it.
 
On a trip to Paris, France, we discovered a wonderful Tea Company called
“Mariage Frères” and a tea that we absolutely love! The tea is =
“Imperial
Wedding” Tea. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy this tea! It is =
DELICIOUS!!
Try visiting their website at:http://mfreres.com.She would also love =
the
delivery of this very beautiful tin full of delicious tea. Make sure to =
get
a “tea sock” or “tea ball” as well so you’ll be able to enjoy =
it upon
delivery!
 
An excerpt from their website reads: 
The art of making tea is experiencing a genuine revival with today’s =
hip and
trendy consumers and no one does it better than French tea maker Mariage
Frères. The relaxing ritual of sipping from a teacup is both inviting =
to
conversation, when with a group and personal reflection when enjoyed =
alone.
 
I hope this tea brings you as much enjoyment around the “cup” as it =
did us!

Does anyone on the list know a tea seller as good as SM is for coffee?

My darling wife, who tolerates my consuming passion for home roasting, =

tea drinker.  I'd like to (occasionally) have one of the packages coming =
in
the mail be something for her.
 
Of course there are several tea stores in Chicago's Chinatown, and we've
been and bought, but that's a two-hour round trip.  Clicking is easier =
than
driving.
 
Any input will be appreciated.  Thanks!
T.

Todd -
Thanks for posting this. It helps that smaller amts can be purchased - =
I might get some for my daughters for Christmas.
The only thing - it seems as though this company doesn't handle the 
shipments themselves, giving links to others that sell it. The only 
problem is telling which company has the freshest tea...?

3) From: Wesley Simon
Can we close out the topic of TEA?  While it may be interesting to some, I'=
m
on the list for coffee and homeroasting.  I don't intend to be abrasive, bu=
t
watering down the content of the list is like watering down coffee: there
may be more of it, but the flavor leaves much to be desired...
Thanks,
Wes
