I feel like it used to be better, but my tastes could be changing. Still a wonderful tea.

For Christmas I ordered the Advent Calendar of Tea. Each day before Christmas I opened the secret door which revealed a quote in French and English, and a packet of tea. The tea choices ranged from black teas to green teas to herbal teas, some familiar, most undiscovered. It was a delight to savor new blends of black tea, my favorite, especially the rich flavor of Saint James O.P., and the delicate flavors within Tea des Amants, Lovers Tea. I ordered the teas I especially enjoyed and shared some packets with friends. The herbal teas are becoming my gentle friends I turn to before retiring to sleep. Thank you for the calendar; it was a lovely way to enjoy Advent. Thank you for the delicious teas that enrich my life. Merci beaucoup!

For a teabag to taste as good as this one, is very unusual. So I am very pleased to learn of your company and will recommend your products.

I believe the Sri Lanka teas are just as good as the ones I used to get from Ceylon years ago.

A nice, bold brew for mornings when I’m struggling to wake up. Like an upgraded version of English Breakfast tea.
