The teas in this collection have really yummy names but don't Brew up to their expectation. I go by water temperature suggested by the company when Brewing. Raspberry ganache is very tasty and the rest of them I expected more. More flavor and less metallic aftertaste. I've been drinking tea my whole life and cannot seem to brew these teas that they taste as good as they sound.
Have given 5 stars for many years...until now. I have bought my teas from Tea Forte for years and in the past several months they have discontinued two of my favorite teas. Coconut Chocolate Truffle and apparently now, Winter Chai. I have less than a half a tin left from an order of 4 tins and now I see I can't order any more. Why are you getting rid of so many of your best teas? I am becoming more and more disappointed with Tea Forte. Obviously I won't be ordering as much or as often as I have in the past. At one point I was ordering 3-4 tins at a time nearly every 3 months. I take a break during summer months but every winter I stock back up. (We recently moved to Kansas and in Kansas it is still very much winter) Stocking up isn't going to be happening any more since they are no longer carrying my favorite teas. I have tired many, many flavors of Tea Forte teas starting with the variety packs and found certain teas that have become my favorites. Now they stop carrying them. Why? Please bring back the Winter Chai and Coconut Chocolate Truffle in tins.
I gave this as a gift, amd the variety of teas ensures the person getting it will find several teas they enjoy. They were however disappointed when they wanted to order large quantities of their favorites so far from this box and don't see them available, specifically Winter Chai, and spiced ginger plum.
I have been buying many of the pyramid tea infuser boxes, white porcelain cups, and even the "tea for two" set in a special gift box. These will be given away as Christmas presents to introduce a wonderful product and tea experience to friends and family. Each evening I select a pryamid tea infuser to end a hectic day and ready myself for bed. Thank you, Tea Forte Inc., for this creative and special product line!
