I am in love with teabox process and products

My first order was phenomenal. Going forward, I will only buy tea that has been picked within the week. From what I can tell, most of the delicate flavors are lost after a month. It's not worth buying anything old. I will just buy a new tea pouch each month and experience the seasons as they happen.

A complex black tea …

A complex black tea. The stone fruit is prominent, and it has soft flavor like a velvet oolong with more than a hint of mineral and a touch of sweet malt but with little of the bitterness of more robust black teas.

I love the flavor...

I love the flavor of this tea. Best part is if you leave it brewing for some time it still doesn't turn out to be too strong.
