The best of the best

My favorite by far!!

A good loose leaf tea

We make iced tea, black tea, and Earl Grey, hot, with this. For the Earl Grey, drip 5-7 drops bergamot oil inside a tea tin, add 1/2 cup dry tea leaves, put the lid on and shake. Presto! now it's Earl Grey.

Wonderful Assam Tea!

We love this Assam tea. This is our 3rd order and it is a wonderful full bodied black tea. I highly recommend it.

Assam Golden Tips is good tea but not 'organic'

It is a good fresh tea, with a nice light flowery taste. It seems to be very sensitive to brewing time, if you go over 2.5 minutes, bitter notes appear quickly. The only negative comment I have is to please remove the word 'organic' from the listing. The packaging does not mention it being organic and there is no organic certificate on it either. That might be misleading to customers although I do believe your word that you avoid any "harsh chemicals" at your farm.

Packaging vs. flavor

Flavor is great. Packaging is fine for awhile but then the " sealer" does not hold about half way through usage. Thx.
