Probably the best darjeeling tea I have ever had. It's full of flavour and brews quickly . Smells wonderful when you open the tin.
I love this tea, having tried Margaret’s Hope from several suppliers I have made this one my favourite for it’s richness in flavour. TeaCakesYork are a easy to order from, communicate with and provide speedy delivery. 10/10
The tea arrived the day following the placement of the order, which was good. The tea is very much an acquired taste; it took me several days to get used to it and begin to enjoy it. Recommend leaving it for five minutes before pouring. If you take your tea with milk, as I do, it will take you a few goes to get the balance right. It is a light tea, so you will not need much. Overall, strongly recommended.
What more can I say? I ordered Darjeeling and Lapsang Souchong both equally as good on flavour, with great delivery service. Keep the good work up! Plus much nicer to deal direct rather than through Amazon which is how I found this great company.
Bought as a present for my Mother, who can't get enough of Teacakes Tea. Both for it's flavour and the fact tea leaves reduces plastic use from tea bags.
