We buy our tea (all loose) from a local shop. We love it. However, I was sent a gift box of teas fro Tea Forte. They were really good, and I really enjoyed them. Bit again, love my local tea. There were however, 2 teas in the variety that just blew me away. The African Solstice was one of them. I've now purchased 3 canisters. It's just such an amazing cup of tea.
