The unique pyramid shapes contain a variety of delicately flavored teas; there should be something to please everyone at table.
The focus is on "sweet" teas and herbal infusions without added sugar. Very soothing after a meal!
I gave it to my friend for Christmas gift. They liked it very much. It tastes very nice and smells good. I will buy another one later.
A good tea to help you relax after a long day.
Refreshing and soothing at the same time.
Tea Forte never fails to impress
Great flavor selection for the cold seasons!
Especially love how it smells
Refreshing,uplifting,a special treat for me tea.
This collection of teas in more than worthy of the tittle Warming Joy. Raspberry Ganache stole my heart at first sip and easily proved the MVP of this fine tea team. The presentation box is absolutely gorgeous and makes for a truly luxurious gift...not to mention a little reward for yourself after a job well done in your own life's journey surely filled with inevitable, personal challenges from time to time!
All teas exceed your expectations.
Makes every cup of tea special.
My first experience with the Camomile citron was at the Wynn in Las Vegas, I have been in love ever since!! There are few things in life that one can't live without, and this is one of them.
If you like traditional green tea, this assortment of tea is not as strong nor as fragrant.
I gave this assortment to my daughter and she is raving about Cherry Marzipan. The clean flavors in this assortment are just what any girl's skin can use.
All of us need a treat, and this assortment of tea was just the treat I needed after shopping for all the people on my Christmas list.
The tea taste good and the package is very beautiful. Best gift for ppl
Love this one so much! Great gifts to the friend.
Love this one and give to preganent for a wonderful new year gift!
This is the best which i ordered, friends loves it!
This tea is pretty to look at, tastes great! My favorite is the Apricot Amaretto!!!
Couple loved it.
I shared these with the people I work with in the faculty room and they absolutely loved them!!
The tea is divine. Love the flavors.
We love this tea! We tried this tea at the Kalihari in Wisconsin Dells and had to have more!!!!
Delicious tea and nice presentatin
Delicious black teas to enjoy. Especially love the Orchid Vanilla!
I have tried many of your tea assortments and enjoyed them, but I think my favorite is the Black Tea Assortment. On the whole I prefer black teas over herbal, green or white teas, although there are many of those I really enjoy also. The teas in the Black Tea Assortment are excellent. You have put together a good assortment. My favorites are English Breakfast and Estate Darjeeling. Thank you for these teas!
I got this box set as gifts for my mother and sister and they have both told me that they love the smooth taste of the various teas. It's perfect for any tea lover.
The taste is wonderful! Refreshing!
Wonderful assortment for cool days and evenings.
Best deal, and their tea is excellent.
Presentation is lovely making a great first impression of the gift of tea. It shows how much you care about giving the gift of relaxation and creates the opportunity for enjoying the moment.
Tea Forte is the only tea, in my opinion, that is worthy for gift giving. Ever since I discovered Tea Forte 5 years ago from my favorite local mercantile shop, I ALWAYS have boxes in stock ready for anyone's birthday, etc. My family and friends are so pleased with the tea, they look forward to receiving one for their birthdays, Christmas, etc. With this presentation box, I was able to customize the box for my boyfriend who's an avid tea drinker. He loves Green Mango Peach the most ❤️ When we visit relatives in Europe, we get a few special request for this tea to bring with us. Tea Forte teas are smooth tasting, smells delicious and addicting! I love my tea and I won't settle for less. ☺️
Bought as a holiday gift for a tea-loving friend. Presentation was beautiful and modern, she really enjoyed the iconic tea-forte design. 1 start taken off because she noted the tea quality wasn't quite as nice as the loose-leaf version of the same tea she had previously purchased.
The tea was a Christmas gift for my sister. She loves it. Thank you Tea Forte for the best selection of tea. I hope, every tea lover will be happy to have the box at home.
My bride had received a 10 Forte Tea sampler as a Christmas gift from a co worker. Historically I am not a tea drinker except when we go out to dinner at a Chinese restaurant. When I saw the Fotre Package I initially didn't know what was in the box. After examining the contents, I was again mystified with the neat looking three dimensional triangular packages. I was anxious to open one and I did! I was once again fascinated with the unique tea container and the neat green tea leave that decorated the container. I read the various tea descriptions and decided to try one. I WAS IMMEDIATELY HOOKED! I brought the remaining 9 teas to work. My fellow office workers were overwhelmed with the unique tea containers! After brewing my last Forte Tea, I went on line and ordered a package of 20. I can honestly state that I thoroughly enjoyed the myriad of Forte Tea blends. I will be ordering another selection very soon! I highly recommend Forte Tea. Quality starts with the Forte Tea Packaging and builds with the "infuser" individual packaging and peaks with the quality of Forte's unique and interesting Tea Blends. Thank you Tea Forte !! MJT - CT
Kudos for all Tea Forte!
As delicious as all of your other teas.
If you have a preference for Black Tea, you have to try Tea Forte
I prefer Black tea, but this Free Tea is awesome
This was given as a Christmas gift and they absolutely loved it. Delish!!!!!! Another one pulled over to tea Forte club.
Smooth, robust flavors
The seasonal tea presentation box is perfect for sharing. The package contains two of each blend and provides a chance for seconds or a way to share a favorite. I tend to like my tea selections green and simple but these packs let me try new things and learn about the blends Tea Forte is experimenting with first hand.
The teas are truly flavorful and worth it
I purchased this as a gift and it was well received
Amazing delicious tea!!
The most elegant tea bags I've ever seen and oh so incredibly delicious.
My mother in law loved how each tea bag was wrapped in gold on the inside. She loved the gift.
My mom's favorite tea! She raves about the quality and looks forward to each cup. The presentation of the pyramid tex infusers is so unique, made a great gift.
My mom drinks nothing but tea as her go to hot drink. She is very picky, so not just any tea will do.
Good to try several kinds before the gift
I love these teas for the holidays and winter months! Great assortment of black and herbal teas of high quality and delicious flavors.
I enjoyed each cup tremendously. Rated it 4 stars because of the price, otherwise it would receive 5.
This is my favorite box Tea Tasting Assortment. I like to offer Tea Forte to my friends because I am sure that they will enjoy the flavor and the design.
Good for a gift
Got this for a Christmas gift for my nanny. Looks great in box and very presentable. She loved it. I'd recommend it for anyone.
Delicate mango/peach green tea aroma when you first open the box. I hate the overwhelming fruity aromas that other teas have when they try to do a combination of flavors. This tea was really nice and enjoyable when you want a little more than just green tea.
As a fan of jasmine green tea, this is higher quality.
This also makes a gift for beginners.
If you ever wanted to try out different flavors or find new favorites, this is the box to get. I gave this as a gift for a green tea lovers and she loves it.
Great mix of tea
I tried this tea at a hotel late one night after dinner. I don't sleep well and chose the chamomile to relax and help me to fall asleep. I felt like it was a miracle that after drinking it I immediately felt relaxed and slept the best I had in awhile.. That's why I will continue to order it vs other brands of chamomile tea. Enjoy!!
I choose this boxed tea to give as a gift and everyone is happy to receive it!
The gift was received on time and in great condition. These are the best teas.
Best herbal tea comes from Tea Forte. I love giving these as gifts, and people love getting them.
I love the teas and share them with special friends as gifts to them for anytime of the year; not times they don't expect it, not just on birthdays, etc. Love your products; they are high end quality and the presentation, blows everyone away!
My son loved it!
I was given this as a gift, and I loved it so much I bought another one for myself. It is a special treat that I allow myself every afternoon. Great flavor, rich taste.
Absolutely love all the teas
I was getting a gift for my mother's friend and she was an exceptional hard person to shop for since she didn't need anything and didnt have a sweet tooth! But she was delighted to see the beautiful packaging of Tea Forté
Makes a great gift.
This is the best camomile tea.
These teas are so good, I have given them to my clients for holiday gifts for several years, now.
I order these beautiful presentation boxes especially around the holidays starting with Thanksgiving. The box makes a delightful presentation to my guests and they enjoy perusing the display of infusers and picking out just the right tea to enjoy after a meal or with their dessert. The teas are individually and beautifully wrapped in their own package and the infuser itself gives an aroma of what you will be sipping shortly. My family enjoys the teas all year round but especially on a cold winters day!
First time I had the pleasure of enjoying the skin smart box. My family and I are big fans of the herbal tea assortment but this box was a nice substitute and addition to our usual purchase.
it's great to be able to try several new teas
This collection truly makes you want to snuggle up next to the fire while sipping your tea. Winter Chai is my favorite in this box. Love the cinnamon!
The pyramid's are really handy. You can put the tea in your bag and take it with you! Mountain oolong truly is an exceptional tea experience. It's very smooth.
This was to be given as a a gift, and they loved it!
Bought this tea for my daughter who is a school teacher and she was the envy of the break room. Delicious tea with lovely presentation.
Great "add-on" gift to a friend for whom I have previously given the cafe cup set. She adored the "refill" as she called it.
This is the ultimate set for the tea lover in your life: a very nice assortment of flavors. The presentation and packaging is very high quality and we will order again.
Wonderful variety of all of my favorites.
Love these for a gift
My skin has never felt so good!
I mostly drink iced tea, but when the temperature drops I order Tea Forte green tea, because nothing else is as good.
I gifted this to my aunt, who was beyond delighted to receive it. She commented on how beautiful the box and tea presentation was, and she later told me it was her new favorite tea.
This delicious tea is full of excellent flavour. Every tea choice here is a good one.
Excellent tea, all flavors were fantastic! Must order again soon!
Not only did I enjoy the tea, an excellent gift to share with friends. Always have some boxes ready for sharing. Never again rushing out to pick up last minute gifts. So appreciated, delicious, and easy!
Flavorful and smooth.
Each tea bag has its own rich taste and it really makes me happy.
The tea is perfect for an after dinner drink. It is tasty while not being overwhelming. My friends all enjoy the tea and many have asked me where they can purchase it.
I love these teas! It's great to have a natural option when you're not feeling well or just simply need a natural energy boost.
This set was a Christmas gift for my wife and she was thrilled. From the beautiful packaging to the exceptional tea assortment. Will definitely purchase from this company again.
bought for my husband for stocking stuffer...he is enjoying the variety of black teas!
I enjoyed this group of teas. I like having a variety of choices!
My sister's favorite tea is Earl Grey especially a delicious cup while reading a book. Her 60th birthday was coming up in January and I wanted to give her something special she would enjoy. I ordered a total of 60 Earl Grey Tea Bags that came in three Presentation Boxes (20 tea bags in each box). I also baked her favorite Biscotti and mailed them to her (she lives in another state). Everything was perfect and arrived on time. Soon we will be together to celebrate in person and we will both have a cup of delicious Tea Forte Earl Grey tea together.
Never have I seem flavors in this box anywhere else. Everything is so beautifully packaged. This is the perfect tea set for the winter cold.
A GREAT GIFT FOR ALL YOUR TEA FRIENDS..THEY GET TO SAMPLE THE GREAT SELECTION AND DECIDE WHAT FLAVORS THEY ENJOY.
This tea is absolutely amazing: rich in taste and flavor, and double steep allows for a liter of tea to be made and shared. All our friends, who tasted this tea at our house, fell in love and now purchase only TeaForte.
Beautiful presentation and wonderful variety of teas. I will now order our favorites. Highly recommend.
I have purchased these teas for years. I love them and my hair and skin do too.
Great treat to my friends and myself. Very relaxing and always cheers me up.
Always a great gift to someone you love!!!!
Great for the winters and for a refreshing pick me up!
Winter Chai was grand for our first snow fall. I carry two in my purse & share when visiting. Pyramid leaf topper is enchanting!
So full-bodied & delicious that there is no need for scone or macaron. Packaging is award worthy!
I purchased the separate infusers to determine which tea I preferred, regroup, reboot, resist etc. I didn't want an $18 tin of a kind I didn't like. I haven't tried them all so cannot decide yet. I would have been satisfied with a silk bag with a labeled tea leaf tassel rather than the pyramid which I think must cost more.
The taste is excellent! I love it. Tea Forte helped me cut down on coffee.
Shared this tea with my sister in Colorado, she loves it!!
I had seen the tea for sale in stores or specialized shops. I had never had an opportunity to try it. So, when the staff at Biltmore offered the morning tea selections I chose English Breakfast - love the flavor and just enhanced our morning meal. We returned home and I immediately ordered a box of this tea immediately. Encourage you to stretch your tea options!
I bought this gift box for my parents. They loved it and enjoyed tea time with their friends.I also like to drink tea all of this package.
A nice mild mint tea, not too strong, my husband's favorite night time tea :)
I don't tolerate black tea and caffeine so well, so this Herbal Mix provides plenty of flavor and variety of aromas, plus the packaging is beautiful. Makes a great gift as well.
A terrific selection of tea to drink by the fire
The mojito & cherry tea are my favorite out of the box!
I absolutely love this team… It is not better… And taste absolutely delicious !!!! Thank you for such a great product !!
This is the first Earl Grey I've had in years in bags that actually tastes like Earl Grey. I'm looking forward to other teas from Tea Forte.
I love Tea Forte teas for myself, but I also give them as gifts because they are always well received. The sampler boxes are nice because you get to try a variety of flavors.
All the tea flavors are full bodied, potentently flavorful, heavenly scented and are truly "warming joy"
Perfect for a gift!
Perfect for a gift
We ordered the Presentation Box Warming Joy Collection as a Christmas Present for some of our clients, and heard nothing but great things! They were delivered when expected, on time for Christmas, and our clients loved it! Thanks, Tea Forte!
Got this gift for my mother for Christmas and it arrived very quickly.
I received the product in a very timely manner. The teas were fresh and so interesting. I recommend the green tea assortment.
I really like the green teas. Recommend to all green tea lovers.
All very nice
Excellent gift for tea lovers!
Amazing teas to gift during the winter!
Got this for a Christmas gift- love the teas included. Great for the cooler nights.
Every flavor is a 10/10. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.
I bought a couple of boxes for my siblings this year. Very festive flavors and it feels like a special occasion while sipping these teas. They were a hit. Great Quality.
Tea Forte are the best teas available. The herbals are not weak like competitors. The Silk pouch is beautiful. I present this to all my guests who come for dessert later in the evening
For those who don't want herbal, this is what I present to my guests in the morning.
I have tried several chamomile teas and I find this to be the best!
I was so happy to receive my 1st box of Jasmine Green. It is the best tea I have ever had. I love the flavor and will definitely be purchasing more. I would also like to try a few different teas with my next purchase. I have told all my friends about this amazing tea and also handed out some to several of friends to try. I can't say enough about this tea, it is my new favorite. Thank you
My daughter and I tried Tea Forte for the first time at a restaurant in Massachusetts when we were visiting for a family wedding. We were hooked! This was one of her Christmas gifts and she squealed when she opened it. Just a superb way to try a variety of teas. Thank you Tea Forte!
The packaging of the tea was so beautiful in the designed box. I loved all of the flavors- so delicious and so different. About to order again.
Wonderful for a gift...excellent tea.
I love the assortment of this box. The tea bags are cute and sturdy. My favorite is coconut lychee! I would buy this box again once i run out.
We gave these gift tea sets as Christmas gifts and they were appreciated by teachers and school
We ordered this box set for our spa office and everyone loved them! They are so aesthetically beautiful, and so delicious. The pyramid tea bags with the little leaf on the top made for the perfecting finishing touch on this refreshing skin smart tea set
Simply one of the best Earl Gray Teas
Gave this as a gift and my dieting friend LOVED the box of great dessert teas! Let them drink TEA!
This product is as good as it gets. Great packaging and superior quality product.
This is my everyday go to Tea. I love this it helps with calming and the flavor is great!
I have tried MANY English Breakfast teas. This is the best!!
I sent to my sister for everything she does for me. She loved it!
I bought the box of 48 warming joy teas and was hooked! I finished the larger box and then ordered the smaller one. These are complex teas that are perfect for cold Midwest nights, or days. I highly recommend Tea Forte teas and products.
For the discerning green tea drinker, this presentation box is perfect! I tried some of these teas in other presentation boxes and decided to buy this box as a gift for a green tea drinker. It was well-received! I highly recommend this presentation box with a variety of green tea flavors!
Bought as a gift. My sister loved it.....!
This tea is wonderful! I love the taste and it really helps to relax and unwind with this tea.
I have ordered tea forte before and love it. The flavor and quality are full bodied and wonderful. I take advantage of the sales. It's a great treat for me.
Looking good forward to giving my sister in law the,warming joy teas when we go back east. She loves teas like me and think she will enjoy the different flavors.
Compared to the swill they sell in stores, your tea is a sensual experience, delighting sight, smell, and taste like no other. I enjoy it with just a touch of raw honey. Where have you been all my life?
This box is giving our guests a good variety of quality teas. It will not last long.
Two of the flavors are not too special, but still good. The others are delicious and stay flavorful for hours.
All the teas, black and herbal, are flavorful, rich and warming. They are just right for cold winter days and nights. Since I live at 9,000' in the mountains of Colorado, this is important to my guests and me.
Nothing like a nice hot cup of tea to warm up a cold Maine morning!
This is another nice box of different teas, mostly with caffeine some herbal. It would make a great gift for any tea lover.
A wonderful combination of teas.
The box is really beautiful and the tea is probably the best I've ever had.
I love the teas from Tea Forte. It's very calming and relaxing for me to have during the middle of the day.
Love the flavor of the infusers.
I have ordered many different boxes and have not been disappointed in any of them. Very nicely packaged and love the flavors :)
Friends received pkg on time and were enjoying delicious hot tea right away at their northern address! Sharp looking package presentation too.
I ordered because I already knew I loved the flavor. The packaging pushes it all over the top! Lovely. Just lovely. Makes every cup feel like 5 start dining. And I'm truly glad the "do not microwave tea bag" notation is visible. Tried a tea from a competitor who didn't note this simple (microwave water, then add tea) note and what a mess! Your product is wonderful, your packaging truly lovely and the directions straight-forward and very helpful for best preparation and enjoyment. I'll be back.
This tea has been my favorite (in black currant) since I found it about 5 years ago - and I love many flavors,since I drink tea, NOT COFFEE,EVER). As I have tried 0ther flavors, I find all the fruit flavors have a true flavors, not as if they have sat on a store shelf for a few months, or so, and gotten all dried out, with no flavor.. I GIVE MANY PRESENTS OF tea Forte at Xmas.
I gave this tea as a gift and she loved it. She loved the variety and the presentation of this great tea.
This tea is my favorite. It is always packaged in a nice gift box if you decide to give it as a gift instead of for yourself. The fragrance is wonderful and it makes for a great cup of Earl Grey.
Great tea! I will definately order again from Teaforte.com!
I get this tea for a friend for Christmas, she jsut loves this tea!
I love the presentation box and the pyramid infusers. Several of the teas are definitely favorites...I just wish I could trade a few for others I'd prefer in the future.
Bought this as a "thank you" gift for a friend. Great presentation, he loves it! Nice selection of tea flavors.
The tea is always terrific! But this package make s wonder feminine presentation. It's my favorite packaging print!
I bought this as a gift and was very pleased with the presentation--very beautiful! Makes for a great gift.
This is one of my go to birthday gifts for friends and family. It's a nice variety of Tea Forte herbal teas. I also include the Tupelo Honey flute and Tea Trays, everyone I've given it to has LOVED it!
I can actually taste the tea without adding sugar, lemon, etc.
$30 for 20 infusers? A bit pricey.
Love trying all the different flavors. Very pleased with my purchase.
I bought two different assortment presentation boxes and because they come with two individually wrapped trays of ten, I shared the other tray with a family member so that we could each try a variety of teas.
Beautiful gift. Right name for right flavor. Visual and taste enjoyment. Will buy more for friends and self.
First tried a year ago at the Wynn Hotel...now never ever drink another brand of tea.
Everything is good about it!!!
I always receive compliments on these teas. Highly recommend these. I give them as Christmas presents
Love the variety of teas
Hard to give up but made a lovely gift.
I purchased the variety pack of herbal teas as a gift for my wife. These teas are fantastic. Aroma really accentuates the taste. We love Tea Forte.
Love the box but love the tea more.
Good right before bed!
Good right before bed!
Love the soothing taste of this tea! You won't regret this purchase😍
Sent as thank you gift. Great presentation and qualify.
Lovely presentation box and tasty teas. Fast delivery too.
In my experience.......boutiques are things that are that little something extra and this tea is just that. It has great flavor is presented so uniquely and the company had great service. I love it.
My grandson loves good tea, and we have a tea party planned for when his school year is over. I supply the tea. He supplies the teapot.
I get this tea from my daughter every year for Mother's Day and Christmas it is my absolute favorite. I can't imagine starting my day without it.
Not only was the packaging beautiful, the tea is great!
I enjoyed each one of the fabulous flavors. Frankly this box has made me a tea drinker.
