Thanks for the deal OP. First tried their stuff on prime day and can vouch it's good quality. Tried their loose leaf green tea and ginger tumeric. Both are high quality

It's very very good. Compared to any bagged Tea, this Tea has better flavor, less branches and is less bitter.

For Black Tea, I prefer VAHDAM to David's Tea. I'm working on these 2 and they are Amazing:

VAHDAM, High Mountain Oolong Tea Leaves from Himalayas (150 Cups), 340g / 12oz, OOLONG TEA
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01NA9WRZF/
$40 for 340g
(Amazing smell and has a slightly lighter color than normal Oolong Tea).


and
VAHDAM,Assam Black Tea Leaves (200 Cups), Black Tea Loose Leaf, FTGFOP1 Long Leaf,Rich & Malty, 100% Certified Pure Unblended Assam Tea Loose Leaf, Prime Season Harvest, Packed in India,16-Ounce Bag
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00VFYPIDO/
$40 for 454g (1lb)
(This is my breakfast Tea)

No, don't add milk, and only steep for 3-4 minutes.

I use keepa to track this. It will notify you when there's a deal. But I noticed the lightning deal might be cancelled sometimes.

If you want good Indian tea at a good price, go to the largest Indian supermarket near you. It will be at a fraction of the cost on Amazon.

David's Tea and this tea are for people who don't know better.

Anyone know where the cheapest place is for herbal tea. The best I can do is at Walmart for the generic brand that is like a 20pk for $2.22 or so. Can’t find any bulk discounts on herbal tea!

These three comments are pretty ignorant.

Amazon has good prices for 1lb bulk herbal teas. Cheapest would be aliexpress, but have to wait for a long time.

Exactly I agree with @Nikhilvoid .

Please don't compare CTC tea (which is actually tea dust) with original tea leaf's. Those who prefer milk tea, will always have lots of options because the taste comes from the quality of Milk and any spices (Cardamom or ginger) not from the actual tea.

Those who prefer black tea (although for good quality tea leaf it is actually transparent ) will have to pay extra and usually they do. As the quality of the tea leaf matters significantly.

In India, currently for a premium quality tea leaf from Darjeeling will cost you from Rs. 6000-10000 per kg which roughly translates to CAD 100-170. So this price is not a rip off !!!

If anyone likes good quality liquor tea and don't have much options , I would suggest to check your local Long's for MIM estate 2nd flush tea , cost is around 119 CAD / Kg , they sell in packets (50g and 80g ) . In terms of cost to quality as well as availability throughout the year it is a good option.

I wouldn't compare to bagged tea - bagged tea is no tea at all.
By the way, speaking about the sorts of black tea: can anyone distinguish assam, english breakfast, orange pekoe etc just by the taste of it?

And you probably won't find any Darjeeling tea in supermarkets. Almost all Indian teas (including Chai/English/Irish/ breakfast teas) are Assamese tea blends, a species of tea native to India. Darjeeling teas are much closer to Chinese teas (Camellia sinensis) than to the native Indian teas because Darjeeling teas are based on plants smuggled out of China by the Brits.

Keepa notifies of price drops no? How does it notify of future sales?
