drank Assam by two leaves and a bud
88 tasting notes

After reading my initial review (really more of a horror story) about my experience trying the Tamayokucha green tea from Two Leaves and a Bud, I received an email from the Marketing Coordinator of the company. She was sad to hear about my terrible experience and wanted to ensure that I had an opportunity to make the tea myself for its full true effect.

I just received the package today and was excited to see more than just a few samples of the Tamayokucha, but some of this Assam as well as the “Better Rest Blend” herbal tisane. As I have been quite in the mood for a black tea lately, I picked out one of the Assam samples and brewed it up.

The liquor is a lovely deep amber color and gives a nice malty, bitter aroma. I first tried the tea plain and found it surprisingly smooth. The bitterness in the aroma was mellowed quite a lot and left more of a sweet after-taste than I anticipated. I added some sugar and milk and this was transformed even further into a particularly delicious breakfast tea for me.

Despite the fact that it is a bagged tea, it actually rivals some of the loose breakfast blends I have. Well done, I say!

Now that? Is how customer service should be done. Yay!

I agree, that was very nice of them!

Seriously!! Once I’ve sampled even more of their teas, I am definitely planning on wring a full review of the company on my blog. I want to share with as many people as possible how much they honestly care about not only their products, but their customers… even if they are indirect.

Very good experience and I honestly am amazed with how nice their teas are, even in bags.

That is amazing customer service!

Next to quality tea, customer service is #1 to me. Actually they go hand in hand. That is why I continually order from Upton Tea. They lack selection in a few teas-Puerhs especially. Their CS makes up for it. I do have to order Puerhs this year for sure!

Kudos to Two Leaves & A Bud for their customer service. I’ve always had a pleasant experience when I’ve dealt with them. They are top-notch.

Customer Service is very important to me too. I don’t care how good the teas are, if I get lousy customer service, I won’t shop with that purveyor again. I think companies should value their most important asset – their customers.

Dinah Saur

I agree 100%, LiberTEAS and Scott!! I have experienced bad customer service at places that have prevented me from returning. And I have experienced phenomenal customer service at places with slightly lower quality product, but kept returning as a result. This particular situation just makes me happy overall!

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
