I have always loved tea and in recent years I have realized, after trying many kinds, that Tea Forte is the one I enjoy most. I drink it exclusively. The quality of the tea is excellent, the website is easy to navigate, customer service is wonderful and I love being one of their customers. I like the rewards program which gives me a little discount on orders and I even get free gifts (like a Kati cup) every once in a while with their promotions. Keep doing what you're doing Tea Forte!
I grew up on cafe au lait; but the dairy was not helping my nasal allergies; Green tea has always been my afternoon pick up, but was struggling to find a morning tea that satisfied me enough to make the change. This is the blend that sealed the switch. Very satisfying, and no bitter after taste. I enjoy my morning tea now, and don't miss the cafe.
While the more delicate Darjeelings are appreciated this offering is my go to tea, morning or afternoon. It has a robustness which satisfies but still delivers the nuances a Darjeeling should have. It was a lucky day when I chose to use my gift certificate for this tea - I have reordered it again and again using my own funds!
Our tea consumption habits have changed since we discovered Tea Forte. As a China scholar, I have sampled teas from thousand-year old plantations in China and know my green teas well, but was never able to find a satisfying black tea until I tasted Tea Forte Estate Darjeeling. While I do "spice" up the brew with select green tea from Yunnan, the richness of the Tea Forte Darjeeling is the requisite foundation. We will be long time customers of this leaf.
