Love it!

I enjoyed the flight of black teas and bought the Ceylon. At home I steeped it a little longer and like it even more. I’ll be a repeat customer!

Summer and All Year Round Drink

This is my favorite summer and all year round drink. If you want quality Ceylon black loose tea, this is my recommendation. I have tried many different Ceylon loose teas that came from tin can brand (e.g. Yellow Lipton, Dilmah, etc.). You can do a taste test yourself.

Amazing tea and even better service!

I have been brewing my Imperial Earl Grey tea that I bought at Happy Earth for over a week and it is fantastic. What was even better was that, when I walked in the store, the manager came right over to help walk me through some of the popular selections, when to brew them, and what health benefits they have without even being asked! Superb service. I cannot wait to go back and try more at their tea bar!

Daily Drink

This is my overall daily drink in the late noon. I reordered to stock up. I sometimes add condensed milk to the tea for sweetening. This is one of my favorite tea at Happy Earth.

Excellent Black Tea

I love this strong and smooth black tea. It is wonderful with a splash of milk. I couldn’t be happier that my friend introduced me to your shop when I was visiting. I now order by mail, and the process is fast and easy.
