10 reviews for Kenya Marinyn tea GFOP1

  1. CHRIS HOLLICK (verified owner)

    First tasting for this tea. Good body with a soft, fruity tone. Would recommend.

  2. Rob Williams

    Product: Excellent taste and I can achieve easily 3 cups of tea per brew.
    Service: there is a large choice of teas availableand I have been pleased with every one I have purchased.

  3. Toby Scammell

    Product: Slight earthy taste: a less delicate green than from the far East, but great value, and really distinctive.
    Service: Excellent value; quality tea.

  4. Dr Peter A Chapman

    Product: Produced an extremely cloudy infusion and a dreadful taste.
    Service: Good quick service, but teas are of very poor quality compared with one bought previously from this company.
    Vendor response: I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with this tea. We stock it because of its quality and I have recently tasted this tea and decided to add it to our catalogue. I am concerned as to how the tea was prepared. It needs infusing for no more than three minutes with fresh, boiled water that has cooled for a couple of minutes.

    Service: very good service

  6. Jeffery Temple

    Product: I love Kenyan teas and this one was no exception; a good coppery brew with a sweetly sublime flavour.
    Service: The order was processed and dispatched within a couple of days. The selection was extremely good, the only drawback was my lack of funds… I would have loved to have purchased more.

  7. Dmytro Lebed

    Product: Brilliant green tea with a taste slightly different to all other green teas I ever tried before. Very refreshing.
    Service: Nothing to complain about. Excellent teas, good service.

  8. Jonathan Hv Price

    Service: Helpful advice on the telephone. Ordered online and the processing was without error.

  9. Stephen A Ashton

    Service: Excellent
