Great Kit for Beginners 05/31/2020
By Kelby
This kit was so great, and I highly recommend buying it. I am not normally a tea drinker, and definitely have never had Pu-erh tea. The kit has a lot of information about each of the 4 types of tea, and detailed instructions on how to brew each one. Each tea is completely different, so definitely try all 4, even if you don't like one of them (I found I loved the raw tea, but didn't care for the ripe tea). I also think this was a great value. Each of the 4 packets contains enough for two brews, and each brew can be re-brewed up to 20 times. I found based on the instructions that I did not have a tea pot small enough just for one person. So I ended up brewing in an actual tea cup, an used the mesh part of my bigger tea pot as a filter. Anyway I highly recommend ordering this kit if you are interested in trying Pu-erh tea.
Our responseSo glad you hear you enjoyed the teas even though you are not normally a tea drinker. That's high praise for us.

Fun after Reading 11/02/2020
By Sheila Adamson
After my friend and I finished reading The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, this was a great way to share our love for the book and learn more about pu-erh tea. We each got a Tea Tasting Kit and then brewed the same tea and drank as we did FaceTime four different weeks. The four teas were so different and enjoyable. It was interesting to critique them with our own opinions. So fun!!
Our responseSo glad to know you and your friends had a fun time tasting the teas. Thank you so much for submitting such a nice review.

Tea Tasting Kit 07/26/2019
By M
I ordered the tea tasting kit for The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane to share with my book club. I placed the order a week in advance of the meeting and they arrived well before. And the teas were sublime. I have grown up drinking pu-erh tea but not like the ones in this assortment. Truly wonderful. And the first-time pu-erh tea drinkers in my book club agreed.
Our responseGlad to know your first-time pu-erh drinkers in your book club enjoyed the teas. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent experience 04/24/2018
By Michal Joyner
I only wish I'd had this the first time I read "Teagirl from Hummingbird Lane". I was so excited that I decided to read the book again. Having the various teas is amazing, and I highly recommend it. I definitely will order y favorite again. Loving the book even more while I actually have the tea. Also, the packaging is very nice.

Book club set 08/04/2018
By Erin
I bought the Book Club set and it was great addition to our book club meeting. It was interesting to taste the different teas young and old, and from different sources.

I also bought Book Club set to accompany the book for a birthday gift for a tea lover.

Good quality and good tasting teas.

Tea Tasting 01/29/2020
By Mary
The tasting kit was a wonderful addition to our book club meeting to discuss The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane. People enjoyed sampling and discussing the four different teas and reviewing the materials that came with the teas which enriched our later discussion of the book. Great idea.

Mrs. 10/15/2018
By Linda Rosenfeld
Only tried it once, was really looking for the tea cakes and it was better than the loose tea. Not sure which is the tea you sent, aged, or dried, or just not as old as the tea cakes I have. Intend to try those with a group this week to really test those. Much more interesting.

By Michelle W.
My mom and I read the book and meet Lisa See at one of her book signings. We were so happy to hear there was an affordable way to purchase pu-reh and try it for ourselves. We tried 1 of the 4 so far and were very pleased. Highly recommend.
