Tea-of-the-month club recommendations

We're thinking of getting a friend of ours some kind of Tea of the Month club subscription as a (slightly belated) Christmas present. We're not big tea drinkers ourselves; can anyone recommend a particular company to get it from?

I've looked at a couple options from places I recognize the names of. The Art of Tea
one looks the most promising so far--it's a year for $180, which is in the neighborhood of what we were looking to spend (but a little higher would be fine too). It looks like Teavana used to have more
, but all I can find is this one
, which is only six months. Republic of Tea has a bunch of options
, but they all say "temporarily sold out."
I don't know much about our friend's specific tea-drinking preferences, but we thought she might like to try loose teas (I think she just uses teabags now) so I'm looking for a club that does that, and we'll get her a whatever it is you put loose tea in. Did I mention we're not tea drinkers?
