Simply the best, I've tried several Darjeeling's over the course of my dive down the proverbial rabbit hole, and this one has hit a home run, truly enjoyable tea,

A very happy man

This was bought for a Fathers day gift. It was well received and he reported back that the Tea tasted lovely. Definitely recommend. The gift was well presented, and arrived very quickly. Thank you.

My favourite tea

The tea has a lovely hint of honey, it is almost moorish to drink. Delightful to sip on a wintery morning. The orangey tones if brewed for not too long (I let it sit for 4 minutes) and colour of the tea is just magical.
I am astonished how fast the delivery service was! Thank you.

Lynne (Belfast, GB)
Unbelievably Fast Delivery

What I'm wondering is do you have a plane standing by to fly my tea over and then a motorbike courier waiting to delivery it to my door? Delivery is so very fast! Thank goodness because I only had a couple of cups left when I realised I had forgotten to place my usual order. Placed order yesterday and it arrived at midday - amazing.
