The W3 Book Group Luncheon 09/29/2023
By Judith W.
I wanted to write to share my book group’s enjoyment of your beautiful tea sampler. I asked a couple of the members to take charge of the tea making and the directions you provided made it easy and fun while I got the food out to the tables. While we certainly enjoyed both, the jasmine tea seemed better suited to our warm fall day and the menu (various dim sum, shredded chicken wrapped in lettuce leaves, peach- mozzarella- tomato salad, egg custard tarts). I personally enjoyed the tea packed in the mandarin orange peel but think it more suitable to a cooler day.

Thank you for the tea’s contribution to enhancing our discussion of Lisa See’s enchanting book. I may have mixed Chinese teas in a Japanese tea pot but the taste was no less lovely.

Our responseIt sounds like you had a fun and successful tea tasting. Thanks for sharing your experience.

B C Tea 08/29/2023
By Kay Ohmberger
My book club met today, getting together at Judy's for lunch and discussion. We had the Mandarin tea. It was lovely and everyone enjoyed it. Happy that you sent brewing directions. I'm familiar with decanting wine but none of us had seen that word used with tea. The process was easy. Judy had a beautiful Chinese teapot set. I would love to send you a photo.
When we read her book, The Tea Girl..., some years ago, we met at a local tea house here in Albuquerque.
I would recommend to others reading this to purchase the kit.

Our responseSo glad to hear the tea was a nice addition to your book club meeting. Yes, I would love pictures. Thank you.

Beautiful Packagig 11/20/2023
By Thea Reynolds
I read the Lady Tan's Circle of Women along with my daughter and granddaughter and ordered each of us the Book Club Tea Tasting Kit. The tea was very delicious and the beautiful pouch it came in is a great keepsake to help us remember the experience of reading the book and discussing it over a cup of tea. We each found a unique tea pot that we owned but never used and had a great FaceTime book talk with our tea.
Our responseThank you for sharing your tea story and experience. It sounds like you all had a wonderful time discussing the book over a cup of tea.

Wonderful! 02/07/2024
By Kelly Z.
My book club enjoyed both the Silver Needle Jasmine Tea and the Green Mandarin Pu-erh tea while we discussed Lisa See's Lady Tan's Circle of Women and The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane. The satchel that the tea arrived in is beautiful. The descriptions and brewing directions were awesome. So happy to have had the opportunity to serve these teas during our book club. Thank you.
Our responseThank you for your kind words. We are happy that the teas enhanced your group's book discussion and experience.

Delicious Experience 08/18/2023
By Mary Matika
The two flavors of tea were "the icing on the cake" for our book club discussion of Lady Tan's Circle of Women. We sipped both of them as we tried painting bamboo with black ink on rice paper. They added so much to our enjoyment of the book. I was amazed that the teas could be steeped over and over - that made the cost a bargain.
Our responseWow! How fun! We are so glad to hear your group had such a good experience. Thank you so much for sharing.

Nice idea 10/03/2023
By Gloria F Peyrat
The lovely bad the tea came in is a nice surprise--it is very pretty. The tea leaves make a lot of tea, too, so at first glance it seemed a small amount, but in fact, it makes a good amount. A very nice package that adds to the fun of a book club meeting.
Our responseYes, good quality teas usually can be steeped several times and the flavors sustain. Glad you enjoyed the tea and the packaging.

Book club 12/29/2023
By Christina Calpo
I opened mine today and I was surprised that both pouches have the same amount. I thought the book club would have more.
Thanks
Christi Calpo

Our responseSorry for the confusion. The difference between the two kits is the brewing instructions. The book club kit is to be used one time for a larger group while the individual kit can be used for more than one tasting.
