Tea was easy to select - the web site is clear and easy to use. Delivery was timely and the tea was competitively priced. The tea is also delicious!
I first drank jasmine tea with blossoms when I was fifteen almost fifty years ago. I used to buy it served from a japanned canister, weighed in scales on a mahogany counter and then hand wrapped in white paper from a wonderful old tea merchant in Wolverhampton called WTM Snape. I can still remember the exquisite fragrance and the sheer pleasure of watching the dried jasmine blossoms unfold in the teapot.
I was utterly delighted when I first tried the jasmine blossom loose leaf green tea from TeaCakes. I was immediately taken back over four decades to the delightful scent and pale, delicate flowers of real jasmine tea. This tea really is quite splendid; it is light, it is pleasing, it is fragrant without being overbearing, it is refreshing and it revitalises a flagging spirit. I cannot recommend it more highly.
Delicious and refreshing tea. First choice for an evening cup of tea. Prompt delivery on all my orders.
I have placed many orders for Green Tea and every one has been a success. Even when I made a mistake on my post code this did not prevent my jasmine green tea from arriving on time and well packaged. Keep it up Tea Cakes.
I drink this tea as an alternative to Darjeeling or Lapsong Souchon at lunchtime or in the afternoon. In the late evening it is my first choice. I agree with Roger Draper's review below. below
