What a great company. I really like when tea providers explain where they got the teas, how the farms are run, and how the tea is harvested and prepared. Mary Lou and Robert Heiss are the owners and in my opinion some of the most knowledgable people about tea I have ever met.
I have been incredibly impressed with the tea I’ve received so far. They are fresh, fragrant, and well priced. The Himalaya Jade Oolong has been my favorite, and my first tea from Nepal. Although the selection can be overwhelming the descriptions and the Heiss’s wealth of knowledge will help you choose a tea right for you.
Something I wasn’t expecting was the huge selection of handmade teaware, especially the beautiful Japanese Tokoname teapots. These aren’t the standard factory made pot you would be used to, they are made in small batches by talented artists using centuries old techniques, truly works of art.
Overall a great company and experience, I can’t wait to visit their Northampton location.
