'...I just wanted to say a personal thank you again for the fantastic tea tasting experience you gave both my girlfriend and me this morning. It was fascinating to learn about the subtleties of the different teas, where they’re grown and how they’re processed, learning more about Chinese culture and also what effects different teas have on you. I’m sure we will be back again in the future to buy and try more varieties as we learn what our favourites are...' - Mark and Charity
