I love the Darjeeling tea a lot and Tea Firte has never disappointed me! The quality is the best and great flavor. I can't drink other brand.
Really enjoy this tea w/honey
Excellent full bodied Darjeeling
Purchased this as a gift for my husband. It has a very nice fragrance and the taste is light and enjoyable.
beautiful light, golden color and the flavor is delicate and smooth. The aroma is subtle but fragrant.
Enjoy the tea very much!
I love this tea, with and without sugar or milk. Don't miss it if you enjoy black teas!!
I am a total fan of the English Breakfast. I gave this a try but I didn't like it as much as my Tea Forte English Breakfast (which I buy by the pound). Give it a try though - it wasn't bad by any means.
I purchase this time and time again. I look forward to it first thing in the morning and often blend it with other teas I purchase, like the Blood Orange
Excellent tea and great service!
This is the only tea we have tried that has been a disappointment--not because it wasn't good, because it is, but because it has not seemed outstanding as have so many other varieties.
Love this tea, delivery was quick, very happy with the tea and service.
This is my favorite tea! I order it by the lb. and immediately put it in tins upon arrival. It's delicious iced as well as hot. Highly recommend it!
I am very particular about my Darjeeling tea and this is very good, though on the lighter side of what I am accustomed. It has a lovely aroma once left to steep, pleasant to the taste and no harsh bitter after-taste. Especially enjoyable as your first taste of caffeine in the morning!
Strong and flavorful. Delicious!
Consistently brews a perfect pot to start my day. Beautiful clear amber cup with a full flavor, never bitter. I even love to breath in the aroma of the leaves when I open the pouch every morning. A great start to any and every day!!
a delightful tea, very mellow.
I had this tea in a single steep & just loved it! I feel like it's everything a tea should taste like. I like the flavored teas, but if you want just plain tea, this is the one!
After trying a sampler of mixed black teas, this was my absolute favorite! It's so smooth, doesn't give me a headache like other brands, and it's just so relaxing. I had to snag a pound so I could have enough for work and home! I can't get enough of it!
It's so smooth, doesn't give me a headache like other brands, and it's just so relaxing I love the size, but if you drink as much of this tea as I do, this is the perfect canister to pair with an extra pound to refill :)
Amazing! One of my favorite teas!
A wonderful tea if you enjoy a little lighter tea blend.
I have tried many, many Darjeeling teas & this is now my favorite. It is very smooth & lightly musky. One of the best I've ever had.
A very bland flavor, not sure how this is considered a top selling Darjeeling. I would not buy it again.
Rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. No over-powering bitterness. No need to add a thing to this one, it's perfect. This tea is beautiful. It's my new "everyday" tea.
This tea is smooth and satisfying as my new favorite classic black. It doesn't have the bite of Ceylon, and it is great as iced tea also!
This is one of my favorite teas that I drink year-round because it's great served warm or chilled.
I received this tea as gift and I had never before tasted anything so full of flavour. The quality of the tea is amazing and well worth the money spent. I am excited to try more Flavours from Tea forte.
The Estate Darjeeling tea is simply the best black tea I have ever tasted. I got it as a gift from a friend and had it one day not knowing what it was like, and I was blown away. They're not lying when they say it's the "champagne of teas". No one can consider themselves a true fan of black teas until they have tried the Estate Darjeeling.
