Well, I will be on the look out for them. Will let you know if I find them or similar things I can substitute them with.

I remember seeing them in all the major supermarkets. They may not have the particular interesting blends, but they stock the "standard" flavors.

Talked to them on the phone and they asked me to email them so that they can give me a price list. They said I can buy from their warehouse. Thanks!

Checked Lulu and Carrefour but couldn't find Dilmah or any decent Ceylon OR Assam tea. All blended teas.

For curtains we always go to the Satwa souq; best place, best quality and prices. Plenty of shops in Satwa that specialise in Curtains, and they do repairs. There are a couple of shops on the road where the Iranian Hospital entrance is, and I am sure you will even be able to persuade them to come to your home (if in Dubai) and do the repair themselves. Prices are very reasonable.

Have you tried Ahmad Tea. It's as good as (at least) Dilmah. It's available in Union Co-op. Anyone I've made a cuppa for with it, raves about it and I even have to take boxes home to the UK on order

I've tried Ahmad tea. I like it but not as much as Dilmah. The English tea type is slightly flavoured with bergamot which I can do without. Which type of Ahmad tea do you buy? Ahmad also has Assam tea which I can't seem to find here.

Why take Ahmad tea to the UK from here when the company itself is based out of London?

No-one I know seems to be able to find it there. I'm not convinced it really is from the the UK. I normally buy the English Tea No. 1.

Thanks for the info. I just need the cord/string. All curtain shops I have been to in my area will not sell me just that, I really don't need the rail/track since my existing one is perfectly fine. It's like wanting to buy only tires, but they wanted to sell me the whole darn car!
