Wanted: Tea Fairy

I have a problem. I love English tea. Well that is not the problem but the lack of it is. My friend usually travels to UK once or twice a year and brings me tea but this year she didn't go there. So now I only have four tea bags left and I'm in panic! Maybe I should explain a little why I like the English tea better than the local brands we have here. The brand my friend brings me is not any luxury brand or expensive or anything, it's as basic as it gets. BUT it tastes so much better. I can have my strong morning tea without the bitter taste our local teas have if you make it strong. I like the flavoured teas we have here but I just haven't found a basic black tea that would taste as good as the English.

So I think I need a Tea Fairy this time instead of a Thread Fairy. :) I was wondering if anyone in UK might be able to help me? If someone could send me a pack of Sainsbury's Red Label round teabags it would make me so happy! And of course I will pay the tea and the postage, I can pay with Paypal. If you can help me please send me an email, my address is in my profile. Please... I'm begging, help me! :)

I can access many Uk brands, but not a shop one: sorry..no Sainsbury near me! Would Pg or Typhoo do? If yes, let me know! I would be happy to help!

Oh, Sari, I have the same problem! I adore Twinings Lady Grey from the UK. Unlike you I have half a box left of my favorite tea. I hope someone takes pity on you!

Can't help you with the tea, but I'm sure you'll find someone in the UK who can...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, Sari! I love your blog design--it looks so bright and Christmasy :) I'll be back often...

I have the PERFECT website for you :-D

And seems postage is reasonable.
Maybe you can try it ;-)

Thanks Laurylyan for the link, but the postage to Finland is almost 15£, that three times what the tea costs so a bit too expensive for me. :)

Hum... Then I hope you'll find a tea fairy, as I'm living in Luxembourg I can't help you with english tea ^o^
