  1. I ordered this and it is NOT wooden, even though the website still says it is. I’m still okay with it, but I’m really irritated that Williams Sonoma continues to have the wrong description. I feel like it is false advertising.

    • I also want to add that I put this in a reasonable review of the product on the WS website…and it never posted! As of a week from my writing the review, the things still has 0 posted reviews. WTF?

  2. Ohmygosh!! I had been able to resist all the other advent calendars, but this one is British, Fortum & Mason, and TEA!!! I think this will be my kryptonite.

  3. Just FYI… Anyone seriously considering purchasing this should call Williams & Sonoma or Fortnum & Mason and confirm that it is actually made of wood and not cardboard. I have a sneaking suspicion that W&S pulled the wrong description for this particular advent calendar. F&M usually sells this version of their tea advent calendar for about 25 GBP (about $30) and I don’t think it’s actually wood. The true hand-crafted wooden tea advent calendar that F&M does sell has cute little tins of loose leaf tea, not tea bags, behind each little wooden door (with little handles). That one is much more expensive, like around 125 GBP (or about $150 USD).

    That said, if you like sweeter, flavored teas (like me) — the cheaper calendar is for you. The expensive calendar has more refined, distinctive teas for connoisseurs.

    • Thanks for the heads up! I was considering this because a wooden calendar would be great and reusable. But I was confused because the picture sure looks cardboard.

  4. David’s Tea is so much better!

    • Agreed!

    • Agree!!

    • I am obsessed with David’s Tea!! But for people who like the taste of straight-up or classically flavored tea, where the tea is the star, this is a good fit. Although David’s plain Pu’erh is pretty good.

  5. I went to England in February and visited their Flagship store. The price is a little high for me, but I do plan to place an order for some loose leaf soon. Royal Blend is one of my very favorite teas.
