Actually, apropos of very little else in this, thank you for reminding me of Republic of Tea. I've been trying to track down their Blackberry Sage, which was my staple at my last workplace. Someone brought it in as a generic office gift; I think nobody else ever got around to trying it (S mostly drank coffee and I think J was a Red Rose traditionalist though she may have graduated to basic green tea), but I fell for it pretty hard. But I could not remember the company name when I wasn't looking at the tin.
Between this and the really nice looking things at Upton, I am going to succumb to the need to buy tea online one of these days. I'd just better finish at least some of the current flavours first.
