My last order of Tea Forte was a birthday gift for my sister. She was delighted, as are all those to whom I have sent these teas. My husband and I also love them, especially the lovely little diffusers they are packaged in. I will continue to send them as gifts whenever I can! Cathy K.
My daughter wrote this review: “My mother and I fell in love with the Forte brand during a spontaneous trip to a bakery well before the COVID days while she was residing with me in Long Beach. Not only is the pyramid design eye catching and striking, no tea I have ever sipped tasted so smooth. No trace of bitterness, just layers of flavor blending effortlessly with the honey for a divine drinking experience. I was, therefore, thrilled when she surprised me with the classic Tea Tasting Assortment. So far I have had the Black Currant and the African Solstice which were both mind-blowingly good. I let the cup of black currant grow cold which was a mistake so I make sure and drink it out of my Thermos to drink each drop as hot as possible. As I grow older the herbal teas are becoming more attractive as caffeine-free options (although the caffeine in even the black teas isn’t as jarring as a cup of coffee) so I look forward to trying every last one in this collection and trying everything I can on the Forte site that comes in loose leaf form. I love the design of the pyramids, but am trying to avoid plastic which I believe makes up the mesh that holds the tea. Definitely a gold standard brand as far as I’m concerned for tea lovers.”
