This is the best

I have tried lots of black teas and breakfast teas from this supplier and others and this is my favourite. It does not take long to brew and makes a nice strong cup of tea with a lovely smooth taste.

Very good quality tea

I received a packet of Merchant of Truro as part of a Christmas present and now I'm hooked! So I promptly ordered more!! It's the nicest black tea I've had, really comforting and smooth and not too strong. I highly recommend giving it a go. Ordering online was easy with prompt service, many thanks :)

A deeply satisfying blend

I don't like my tea too strong but it must have some bite and I find Merchant of Truro fits the bill perfectly. A deeply satisfying blend.

I don't drink tea but I know my sister will love it!

So when I was asked to review the Merchant tea I was at a bit of a loss as tea is not my thing! Despite my mum's early attempts to addict me to the stuff as a child I have never taken to it - many a plant pot has surreptitiously drunk my tea in polite company. Luckily my mum was more successful with my younger siblings and I know that my younger sister will love it and it is currently in the hamper I have made up for her and her family for Christmas.

Wonderful tea

A really lovely tea! Not as strong as the Cornish Breakfast but still hearty. Delicious any time if the day!
