Oh, but the tea bags have been well received!
Bake and serve them some nice piping hot scones with devonshire cream and strawberries... they will change their mind
See if you can find a Bodum outlet shop near Milan... it is a swiss vendor who sell all sorts of tea and coffee and related equipments, they make excellent varieties of teas, IMO even better than Twinings or Jacksons, surely beat the heck out of Typhoo...
Really, worth a try. (my favourite is Earl Grey Blue Flower and Bodums Best....)
