I'm a huge tea lover, so when I saw this service, I had to give it a shot...and they did NOT disappoint! First of all, the customer service is seriously top notch. They got my first box out to me right away, even though I had signed up past the deadline for that month, and then emailed me directly to give me a heads up so I wouldn't be caught off guard. Second, it's just such a cool service! I loved the packaging...simple yet expertly designed for the product. All the detail that's provided about the individual teas really adds this awesome layer of appreciation and enjoyment. And the tea I've tried so far has been wonderful!! I highly recommend teatourist!!
Ordered a three month subscription as a Christmas gift for a friend and have been bowled over by the customer service experience. If the tea is a fraction as good as the service, my friend is going to be highly delighted!
This is such a good way to experience new teas in the post. Teatourist do the trekking for you up n down the UK looking for new merchants and new teas for you to try. I love the little tea cards we get with each sample, detailing ingredients, how to brew, name of tea merchant and even a scoring guide. I've been subscribed since the beginning and have found two teas that I wasn't keen on but that's no problem as I found a friend who did like them. The tea is packaged beautifully, each sample is enough to taste 3 or 4 cups and if you are savvy with your tea you can re-steep your leaves and make the taste go further. I have found new tea blends and companies that I will definitely be investigating more.
