My sister loved the giftand the customer service was great. I prefer to support small businesses and not chain stores. We chose a Tea Lover Gift Basket because we wanted a variety. The Tea Lover Gift Basket gift features most valuable to us were the packaging and contents. Written by Monique B on Mon 15 Dec 2014 8:49:29 PM GMT
loves tea and loves to readFlowers die, ordered too many plants over the years for my Mom. She loves tea and loves to read so the book 'basket' was perfect. I found this Novel Tea gift basket appealing. The website is great. I found what I was looking for. Written by Lisa R on Sun 12 Oct 2014 1:12:57 AM GMT
enjoyed them very much..good choiceMy gift arrived with no dings in the box and on time. It was clear to me who sent the gift and why. Someone has very nice handwriting at Thompson Tea. It was clear to me what the different gift products were and why they were selected just for me. I enjoyed them very much. I liked the different little products - good choice. I thought it was average quality for the price my daughters' spent. I did enjoy it. I also received the GreeTEAing Keepsake card and enjoyed it very much. I would be delighted to receive another Tea Lover Gift Basket gift. I liked the variety of teas and other items in the cute box. Now that I have received a Tea Lover Gift Basket I would send one to a tea lover on my gift list. Designers at Tea Lover Gift Baskets did a good job.

something unique and different..I chose a gift basket gift because I thought it would be something different and unique. the feature most valuable to me was the different options available. I looked at Tea Forte and the English Tea Store before making my purchase at Tea Lover Gift Baskets. Your website would be easier to use if there was a little bit more explanation on what was in the gift basket like how many teas were in it. Written by Kacey F on Tue 7 Oct 2014 2:21:14 AM GMT
I wanted something different..I chose a Tea Lover Gift Basket because I wanted to purchase something different and specific to my friend's likes. the most valuable features of the Novel Tea were the tea and cookies in a reusable gift. I considered making a purchase from Western Nut Co and Harry & David before deciding to purchase a Tea Lover Tea Gift Basket. I had no problems using the website and found what I was looking for.

book loving friend..I have a book loving friend who loves tea, reading and writing. The most valuable feature, to me, of my Tea Lover Gift Basket gift was the option to customize and personalize my gift as well as the selection of organic and fair traded teas. I searched and searched but most gifts were generic and did not offer many options. I love to customized gifts with a unique style. I was looking for an organic option for the holiday and in general.

It was a special birthday..and I don't live near her. I wanted something special delivered to her. The price and presentation were of most value to me. I looked for a tea gift basket at Harry & Davids and Dean & Deluca. Nothing quite sparked my interest though. I had no issues using the website. I called and spoke to the owner right away. I was not looking for anything in particular. An idea for a tea gift basket would be for a cancer survivor with inspirational readings. Written by Kim R. on Thu 31 Oct 2013 11:44:12 PM GMT
he loves tea and booksI wanted to get him something he would appreciate. He loves tea and books, so this gift was perfect. Your company had the gift that most suited my friend. Your website is very user friendly. I would like to see gifts with an assortment of teas, more gifts suitable for men. Written by Jerrie M. on Tue 8 Oct 2013 6:37:53 AM GMT
Excellent - well packedMy gift arrived in excellent condition - well packed. It was clear to me who send the gift and why. The enclosed tag with message from family - great. It was clear to me what the different gift products were and why they were selected just for me. It was a good assortment. All of the gifts included were very good. I would be delighted to receive another Tea Lover Gift Basket gift, I'm a tea lover. I would love to receive a tea gift basket that included fruit flavored teas and green tea. Written by Lydia H. on Sun 21 Jul 2013 3:26:09 AM GMT
Yes, very nice...the gift arrived in excellent condition. It was clear to my my daughter sent me this gift of Mother's Day. It was clear to me what the different gift products were and why they were selected just for me, on the tag was a list. I found the gift contents to be above average quality - I loved them all. I would not change anything about the gift, I liked it all. I would be delighted to receive another Tea Lover Gift Basket because of the charming package. I would send a Tea Lover Gift Basket gift to a tea lover on my gift list if the price was right. I would love to receive a gift that included herbal tea and a variety of cookies. I really liked the 'book' container. Written by Amy S. on Sun 21 Jul 2013 2:05:40 AM GMT
many items to enjoy in a gift basket...with recipient's known preference for tea, that is why I chose a tea gift basket instead of a more tradition gift like clothing or jewelry. I made my purchase from Tea Lover Gift Baskets because I saw your advertisement in TeaTime Magazine (and took advantage of the promotional offer). I found several tea gift baskets on your website that were appropriate. Written by Martha P. on Sun 21 Jul 2013 1:43:52 AM GMT
