A vertiable feast of tea.
Pristinely presented and delivered with gusto, this is the single best way to discover tea I have found. I counted 37 different teas in the lovely box and each packet can do around 3-4 cups depending. So for your money you're getting around 110-150 cups of tea depending. Ok, so for a box of 180 tetley tea bags you'd pay about £3 but you will discover tea in a way you'd never thought possible. There really is a world of flavour and diversity out there. Do it! DO IT!

I can't recommend this highly enough for those who, like me, are new to 'real' tea and need to explore a bit to find what you like and dislike. I couldn't find any other dealers doing collections of little samples like this and I can't, for the life of me, understand why. Well, it's their tough luck - I shall stick with this company now (you can buy the samples individually, too, if you find they've stocked something new you want to try).
I had no idea there was such a variety of flavours available in plain, black tea and, in my innocence, I bought it in search of one, 'ideal' tea - I mean, who keeps more than one tea in their kitchen, right? Um ... me from now on - I've just ordered six, plus caddies, and I only stopped at six because the seventh was out of stock. So I suppose the collection should come with a financial health warning.
The little 10gm samples are just the right size: not so big that you get lots left over of the ones you don't like, but big enough to get several mugs of tea for the purposes of comparison. I didn't note how many mugs I made from them, but from my tasting notes I know it's at the very least four half-pint mugs (for comparing, I'd probably have done better to have used a small cup and drunk more brews at a session for the same volume of tea).
To sum up: it was quite fun working through this, and I learned a lot more than I thought there actually was about black tea.
