Tea People! Turkish sage tea, and lemon tea... can the experience be replicated in the United States?

My parents just returned from a wonderful trip in Turkey. Among the things they raved about was the sage tea and the lemon tea. I'd like to find one or both for them, and with good enough quality not to disappoint, and taint their memories of the genuine article. So it's not just finding a source -- it's finding a quality one. A preliminary search turns up http://www.shopturkey.com/orsateaa.html and a few similar options. But does anyone have insight to share before I just make random stabs at this? (I've never tasted the stuff myself, though I do like tea!)
The folks are old-school foodies, and I owe them life and happiness. So if I need additional equipment like a two-tier kettle and instruction manual to get the production right, so be it! You'd solve my annual Christmas shopping nightmare while you're at it. Thanks!
