    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: 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.

    Product:
    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.
