Very pleased with this estate grown tea, much nicer than most of the Darjeeling tea I've bought from other retailers. It's on a par with some I bought from a well known departmental store in Knightsbridge which in fairness was also excellent but more expensive.
Recommended for quality and price.
I am relatively new to special loose leaf tea, and have tried a number over the past few months.
I have to say this is by far the best and equates to what I have read about Darjeeling being "the Champagne" of tea.
It is not overpowering, and has a delightful refreshing quality, which I have not found in any other teas I have tried.
I would highly recommend this, and will be looking to buy much more, as this fully reaches all my expectations and what I am wanting in a tea.
The service I received was excellent and I would highly recommend this seller.
I look forward to many more equally satisfying orders.
My recent order was dealt with quickly and competently as is always the case with this retailer.
Having tried other suppliers' Darjeeling and were disappointed we were delighted to discover Tea Cakes of Yorkshire's product. Margaret Hope's Darjeeling is just how a Darjeeling should be with a delicate and refreshing flavour. The service provided by Tea Cakes is first class and this time our order was sent with a surprise present of a tea caddy. Many thanks.
We initial relied this blend as a 10g taster, wetc decided to try it as our other blends were running low and we're surprised by the taste.
Compared to our regular blend the Nonsuch single estate, this has a much more subtle and delicate flavour. It doesnt suffer from becoming too bitter after been left for a longer brew and is incredibly refreshing. It is perfect drink for special occasions.
Service from Teacakes is top notch, they routinely surprise us with little extras in our orders.
