  10. Cd Henderson

    Product: Definately in my top five teas. It’s very good, sometimes needs a bit more steeping but worth the extra minute or two. Also very good for hooking new tea drinkers.
    Service: The tea is always as described, it gets shipped quickly, and the web site is easy to use.

  11. Mr A E Lister (verified owner)

    Service: Payment at Check regularly proves problematic and when attempting to contact via telephone there is seldom a person to speak to.
    Vendor response: I am sorry that you have problems at the checkout. We do check this on a regular basis. Should you wish to raise a query we are here during office hours. You are free to leave a message should you call out of hours so that we can return your call as soon as possible.

    Service: good

  13. John Tugman (verified owner)

    Product: Pleasantly surprised, a second flush Assam with proper second flush character.
    Service: Informative website & good teas. Would have liked to have seen an example of the tins / caddies before purchase. Tins are functional but not as impressive as the Whittard’s Caddies

    Product: exhalent flavour as described
    Service: speedy service arrived within the predicted time

  17. brian spink (verified owner)

    This is currently my favourite tea; I drink five pots a day without milk. Smooth and characterful without being overpowering or bitter. Seven day delivery an improvement on previous order; I get really grumpy if I have to drink inferior tea!

  18. Jake (verified owner)

    Product: An excellent, full flavoured and malty tea to kick-start us in the morning
    Service: generally very good. Good alternatives offered if stocks are low.

  19. bob1 (verified owner)

    Quite subtle and complex. Blends nicely with other black teas when the mood takes me. Good with or without milk.

  20. Cd Henderson

    Service: Shipped from the U.K. to U.S.A, arrived quickly, although I wish the teas could be shipped in a box; I don’t trust my postal service not to crush the tea in transit. I would be willing to pay a bit more for shipping to be sure the tea would be safe.

  21. Robert Dixon

    Service: very good service

  22. Chris (verified owner)

    A rich, creamy Assam. Has character, and can be enjoyed at anytime of day.

  23. David Phillips

    Service: The courier service is high quality and gets rid of problems of non-delivery by Royal Mail on the 2nd class post option
