The benefits of loose leaf tea

  • Loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse.
  • The tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known.
  • A little patience is required when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup.

    Prominent black tea flavour.
    Rather bland

  5. Katherine Park (verified owner)

    Service: The tea did not arrive on time despite paying for first class post
    Vendor response: I am sorry that you were disappointed with our service. Your order was dispatched within two days by 1st Class Post. Post can however be slower than normal at this peak Christmas time.

  6. James Duggan (verified owner)

    Service: Excellent range and service.

  7. Alexandra Tang (verified owner)

    Product: standard up on par
    Service: efficient processing of order and delivery

  8. B.S.Mason

    Product: My mark is related to this order. However, I have tried their Dimbula before, found it to be very good & is the reason for my new order.
    Service: My first contact was by telephone, the staff povided excellent assistance. Their shipping however lets them down.
    Vendor response: Your order placed on 30.12.14 was despatched to France on 2.1.15. We note your comments made on 10.1.15 however there is undoubtedly much mail in the system from the festive season so overseas delivery may well be somewhat slower than would be expected.

  10. Anatoly

    Product: Excellent taste
    Service: Very prompt service

  11. Derek Smith

    Product: A pleasant, light. Not quite as much flavour as my ideal Sri Lankan OP would have.
    Service: I like the range of teas and speed of service. I have 2 comments about the website:-
    1. ordering is a slow process. Price is a factor in what I order but I only find the price once I’ve clicked all the way through to the product. It would be useful to have that information upfront.
    2. I have been trying to find a way to use a different delivery address but haven’t been able to find it.
    Vendor response: Thank you for your constructive comments.
    1. On 21st February we introduced various changes to our shopping basket and checkout which we hope will make shopping quicker and easier. We realise that having the price with the tea details can be inconvenient but many customers prefer to have all the tea details on a single page.
    2. If you wish to ship to an address other than your billing address please tick the box ‘deliver to a different address’.
    I hope this helps.

  14. Mr A E Lister

    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.

  19. Steve Watson

    Great afternoon tea
    Fully rounded yet light colour and aroma

  20. J K Mcghee

    Service: The website needs to reflect the pricing better I.e. The drop down should price per weight band that you sell
    Vendor response: I am puzzled. Each product page does, have a drop-down menu showing the packing combinations for that tea such as 125g or 250g, packet or tin caddy.
