Another company that specialises in Sri Lankan teas? This was too good an opportunity to miss so for my next tea order I put in a bulk order for a variety of teas from this wonderful tea producing country. I ordered a mixture from a variety of estates totalling around £50~.

The order arrived the next day, all the teas in sealed bags tied with string and labelled clearly. Brewing notes came seperate with information about the tea and its estate and I also received several complimentary sample packs which was a really lovely and unexpected addition.

It shows that the person who runs this site clearly knows their teas and will help you with suggestions and ideas which for a new person to tea is a real bonus, it doesn’t feel like they are trying to sell to you but to help you select teas they think you will like.

The pricing is very reasonable too especially for the quality of what you are getting. At the time of writing this I’ve tried three of the teas and they are magnificent and tasty and refreshing. The brewing notes are very clear so as not to spoil your teas.

All in all I have no hesitation in recommending Monsoon Mountains Tea Company to you all. The helpful and attentive service plus top notch products is a winning combination, I have months of tea for what I paid and love trying the different varieties of Ceylon teas. If you place an order you will need to do so via PayPal or cheque but it didn’t take long to open an account and link it to my debit card.

Everything considered I would make another purchase from this company and look forward to seeing what new teas are available next year. Keep up the good work Rebecca.

Price: Very reasonable 8 / 10

Information: Excellent. Seperate brewing notes for every tea with information on its background. An improvement? Perhaps this could be printed on the packaging label 8 / 10

Packaging: Brilliant! It looks amazing, every tea having its own string sealed packaging, a real lovely touch. 9 / 10

Service: Really top notch – can not be faulted 10 / 10

Delivery: Arrived the next day! You really can’t fault that and kept informed of the progress throughout 10 / 10

Total: 45 / 50
