Tetley's (UK) Tea in Sacramento?

Does anyone have a source for Tetley's UK tea in the Sacramento area? The Tetley's you can buy in Safeway etc. as "British Blend" is not the same as the stuff available in the UK or Canada. My dad's friends brought him a stash from Canada in their RV, and it is sooooo much better. I went to Cost Plus today but no luck there. My folks are British so I'm looking for an authentically British tea, not a "gourmet" loose leaf Assam gold tip tea experience. I want to brew it strong and drink it with milk and sugar.

Good Thai in Sacramento?

We're new to the area and are looking for some tasty Thai. Loved Cha Am in Berkeley and Amarin in Mountain View. Doesn't have to be cutting edge or fancy; hole in the wall is good. Particularly interested in Downtown/Midtown, East Sac, South Natomas areas.

Also, feel free to post your recs for any Asian cuisine. We're new! We know nothing! We eat everything!

Lunch recommendations between San Francisco and Santa Cruz

Lots of options in downtown Mountain View (take Shoreline exit, head left on Villa and park around Castro). Los Charros has killer, killer tacos and burritos al pastor, but probably the best thing to do is to stroll around and see what takes your fancy. Palo Alto (University Avenue exit) has a great downtown too; fancier stuff but parking is nuts. If you can hold out all the way to Los Gatos (should take an hour from SFO at that time), there's another batch of restaurants there. I like The Wine Cellar; Steamer's, Willow Street Pizza, Cafe Marcella.

Sacramento - Chicago Fire Pizza

Great to hear. I'm new to Sactown and am looking for the good pizza. Is it a crazy long wait like at Zachary's? Can you get the 'za to go?
