Re: discount herbal tea source?

Dianna,
That's handy to know. I've always been a bit scared of taking my own tea into restaurants, even though most of the time I'd certainly prefer that. Recently, for trips to the park though, I've been using T-Sac bags which are unbleached and don't really leak much of their taste into the tea. (and of course are bio-degradable).
Let me know how the bulk blends at the health food store taste.. I'm always interested.
