    "My son got me addicted to this tea.  full flavor.  I now order it by the pound!"

    Susan from PA


    “Definitely my favorite tea to warm up with after acold winter day.  Tastes like the holidays!”



    "Makaibari 1st and 2nd get all the attention, but Makaibari Autumnal is one of my favorites!  I like a strong tea, but for those who need to add milk, Autumnal is perfectly fine with that.  A delicious Darjeeling!"

    Diane M.


    “One of my classic favorites. I've been drinking this tea for years. It has the odd effect of putting me in good mood more than the other green or white teas. Also, it re-steeps very well giving you more bang for your buck. Highly recommend.”

    Maria I.


    “Never had a tea like this before!  The aroma is amazing.”
