Tin arrived in pristine condition- this was a leaving present for my English teacher and she absolutely loved it! I'll definitely buy from this shop again for birthdays and Christmas.

This tea was bought as a gift and it was very well received. Whilst I haven't had the luxury of trying it I've been told that it's lovely and the tin is a sweet little keepsake.

Beautiful item - a great gift - many thanks

Bought this for my friend and she loved it
