I love World Market and often shop at the one near our house. If you join their online club, they keep track of what you spend and then sent you great coupons, like $10 off a $30 purchase.

I have a tea pot from there and I buy Republic of Tea there also.

Thank you joanj! It is a wonderful store~with very interesting and fun and affordable tea products. The world around us drinks alot of tea and many countries as well as many tea suppliers are represented there. I do recommend joining the free on-line club to get coupons and special sales! Making a tea basket to give to a friend is a snap there! Have fun shopping!

*I have no affilliation with this store nor am I being compensated in anyway for this mention. Just sharing and agreeing with our tea readers as a great source of tea & tea products!

Greg Mortensen has now agreed to pay $1 million dollars back to his Montreal charity!
This is to settle the accuisations that he used the non-profit to promote & buy copies of his book that provided him profit.

The Central Asia Institute spent some 3.96 million since 2006 to buy copies of The Cups of Tea.

With all of this talk about colorful tea pots and cups, I have to wonder how many of these items have lead paint. It would be hard to tell, especially for items made out of the country. Even Macy's at one time said that some of their dishware could have lead paint in them, and the only brand I was able to find that stated they do not use lead paint is Fiestaware.

I am personally leery to buy colorful teaware only because I drink a lot of tea, and I would not want to expose my tea to lead paint and then drink it. Does anyone know of legitamate companies that do not use lead paint in their crockery besides Fiestaware?

Dear Debbie,

Thank you so much for revisiting this subject matter. Every once in awhile it does come up & in this day and age we are concerned what can possibly go into our bodies-

Let me do some checking around to see what kind of answers I can come up for you. Also asking readers if you have heard or seen news regarding lead paint please let us know here.

The subject will be mentioned here and nothing in the forum is ever a closed subject. Thank you Debbie

Dear Debbie,
Did some checking around and did not actually find much complaints about the Brand Fiesta Ware. Homer Laughlin was notified that few people had questioned the lead content. They brnd currently tests at .02PPM for lead & cadmium~so not 100% but very close.

It is made in the USA so they are compelled to follow strcit guidelines set forth from FDA.

Most in the know claim that if any type of ware glaze is pitted,cracked, or disentregrated in any way it should not be used.

Fiesta Ware that predated 1986 did not have these standards & it is thought that 1960-1970's ware most likely contained none.

So I hope this helps a bit!

Thanks for the great questions.
