The website doesn't appear to replace Garamond with Times for me. A peek at the CSS reveals this:
font-family: Garamond, Baskerville, "Times New Roman", serif;, and a few other variations on that (it's inconsistent). I am fortunate enough to indeed have a font installed called simply "Garamond" (I think it's a Microsoft Windows/Office thing), but they could easily expand that list, because clearly there are dozens of different Garamonds out there.
Good catch, Joshua. Users who have a font family called "Garamond" installed on their system should see it on the site. Looks like I don't. The solution, of course, is to serve fonts via @font-face. You can get Monotype Garamond itself through Webtype. Typekit offers Adobe Garamond and Garamond Premier, and Fontdeck has a few.
Now that was quick: just got an email from All About Tea. They appreciated the article and are now using Monotype Garamond on the site.
Thank you for the tip about Webtype, Stephen. It was very quick to set up and it has fixed the problem that you highlighted. Monotype Garamond makes all the difference (compared to the other variants you mention). Sorry to anyone who was not able to enjoy the full effect of MB's incredible work.
WOW, am so impressed by how quickly All About Tea responded. Makes me appreciate the brand even more given how much they care about all aspects of their product!
