08/23 - J, Auckland -  My lovely tea has arrived already. The samples are a great idea - I wouldn't have considered coconut cream if we hadn’t tried a sample and I love the rose earl grey.

03/23 - P, Sydney - Your tea is so good we had to buy more from Australia. We first tried it at Millbrook resort. An excellent product. 

 04/22 - W, Wanaka - I received my order this morning and I wanted to tell you how impressed I am. The tea tastes great and has nice big leaves, we're now fans. The news of your great tea has rippled around my tea drinking friends in Wanaka.

04/20 - L, Hawkes Bay - A Tea BouquetMy order of tea arrived yesterday but I was so busy I have only this morning had time to open the package. What a delight it was!

I hope to hear from you soon and would be so happy if you have good news for me

19/03/18 - T, North Island - I just wanted to say a massive thank you! Words cannot explain how religiously I drink your peppy mint each time I’m craving something sweet to drink or just to chill out! This has honestly changed me and gives me more energy than normal tea or coffee without dairy which helps me soooo much during the day (I’m an early childhood teacher so keeps my brain on track) I just wanted to say I always recommend to others and will continue to! Thank you so much for helping me be a better teacher.

November/ December 2013 Comment Selection:

D, Christchurch - I just wanted to let you know I love, love, love your tea. It is one of my fav times of the day. Many thanks for the work you do in bringing it to us. 

L, Waipa - A comment in response to our question would you like your order giftwrapped? No thanks – it will just take us longer to get into the divine Elegant Grey.

J, Invercargill - OMG!!! The giftwrapping is beautiful and it will be a pleasure to give away as a gift, thank you.  

M, Pokeno - I think your English Breakfast tea is the best I have ever had! I have purchased teas in London (including from Harrods & Fortnum & Mason) and yours is my favourite. I will continue to use your online service and visit your market stand next time I am in Queenstown
