I can only comment on the service as of now - still using up tea we already had in use. Easy to deal with company giving excellent service and speedy FREE delivery along with a free sample ( although we cannot make use of this as we are caffeine free only drinkers!!). I have passed the sample onto my younger son to try - will comment on it at a later date! He is looking for a supplier for himself, so hopefully he will take notice of my recommendation!! Will let you know how we get on with the decaf tea later after trying it, and hopefully we will be ordering again. Thank you.
The tea arrived really quickly and well packed - it is a good tasting Lapsang tea with the tea leaves cut to a good size - not too coarse or fine. I add half a scoop to every pot of tea I make!
I ordered the tea caddy. It arrived amazingly quickly which was fab.....except it was the wrong tea...not so fab. As it was the weekend I sent an email asking what I should do. Surprised to receive a reply on Sunday evening.
They said to keep the one sent in error and they would send the correct one out.
It arrived amazingly quickly so it’s all good.
Very happy with excellent customer service.
♥ This is now the only green tea I drink, I even buy empty tea bags to fill so I can carry some with me always. ♥
Decaffeinated English Breakfast is my tipple 3.5L a day I drink and I love it. It's very quick and easy to order from Tea Cakes and the tea arrives within a few days. I prefer loose leaf tea to tea bags as to me the tea bags take a little longer to brew. I would recommend Tea Cakes Tea to any one.
I have tried probably 20 different loose leaf earl grey teas and this is my favourite, the black tea is smooth lovely high quality large leaves and the level of Bergamot flavour is perfect not over powering or bitter.
I blend my earl grey with jasmine flowers or rose petals for the perfect brew for me.
Lovely red bush tea. In fact I'm drinking a cup right now. Order came on time with no fuss and very well packed. I would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to purchase this tea.
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.
At long last.......a decaf loose leaf tea that TASTES like tea!!!
NOTHING like this seems to be available anywhere else. Thank you TeacakesYork, for making a cup of tea enjoyable AND environmentally friendly. Your service is also second to none. CONGRATULATIONS!
My brother actually only drinks Lapsang when he drinks tea, and him and his wife are really big on organic food, so this is one of the very few teas I can gift him. I didn't have a lot of money around his birthday this year, and he was so disappointed when he didn't get his tea :) Safe to say I'll be ordering this several times a year, for him, myself, and other family members.
I can't thank you enough for supplying such a wonderful blend of decaffeinated Earl Grey tea.
I look forward to my afternoon brew everyday.
Thank you supplying such a wonderful blend of tea. Very hard to find a decaffeinated breakfast tea that tastes so good. I look forward to making my morning brew every day.
This is my 2nd purchase of many.
I keep coming back because tea tastes great and is delivered really quickly!
This is a delicious drink, taken whenever you need a sit down and chill. It tastes as good as it smells.
In no frills wrapper it is great value for money, try it!
100% satisfied with this tea, which I sought on line as I couldn't find decaffeinated loose tea in the supermarket. The tea is mild flavoured and smooth and I was very pleasantly surprised when I first tasted it. If like me you are tired of finding the remains of tea bags in your compost bin, not having decomposed due to their plastic content, then leaves are the way to go. I can also recommend the Teacakes tea strainer.
I only drink one type of tea - Lapsang Souchong. I have tried many stockists who were overpriced, supplied poor quality, bitter tea, or tea that was unidentifiable as being Lapsang Souchong. Not this company. Fabulous tea, good quality, decent price, very speedy delivery as well as free shipping. A free gift of a tea caddy and just when you didn't think it could get any better, a sample sachet of some equally fabulous tea.
So impressed with my initial purchase of one spoon, I bought a further two. I love loose tea so I needed one in each caddy. I might even get another one.
Service: 10/10. Product:9/10 - (probably because as I've got older my taste buds have diminished somewhat). Incredibly quick and efficient delivery. Much better than the alternative tea from TofH! Will definitely purchase again. Kudos to Teacakes of York.
I have now bought the the decaf' black tea on several occasions - and I just have to keep coming back to it!
With several decaf' teas the strength of taste leaves so'something to be desired' - but not with this. I prefer a stronger taste to mt cuppa' and this is just right. It is also a good tea for whatever time of the day!!!
Having drunk tea all around the world, I think I have found my perfect brew with this Teacakes Own. I love the full flavour and smooth, satisfying after-taste that leaves me looking forward to coming home and putting the kettle on, whenever I am away for even a short space of time. If I am ever given a cup of teabag tea, I become homesick! I live in the Southwest, this tea suits our water perfectly, when I travel to London it tastes slightly different, but still very pleasant. Highly recommended.
Im afraid i found this tea awful, even the smell made me feel ill. One mouthful and i put the rest down the sink. It was like a bonfire. Not for me.
