Living Leaf Customer Reviews

If Spring was a tea…

It would be this – it makes a very delicate and beautiful liquor. It glistens in the bowl and tastes like the breeze that blows through the trees in late March! I drink this whilst working and incense going – first thing in the morning. It’s equally nice to sit back with in nature and sip. I’m on my 9th steep now!!”

Kathy De Leye / Owner @ Healthy Body Mind, Belgium

“100% organic, barely processed white tea… still full of big, whole leaves. This Gong Mei from Living Leaf Tea has been naturally dried in the sun. Light and refreshing with a slight apple flavour. A perfect summer afternoon tea. …the leaves are just so big and bright green. Looks as if they’ve just been picked!”

Jorg Bouman / Amsterdam, Netherlands

“TBH I was a bit skeptical – there are already a ton of online tea companies and I expected the same type of tea I can get at Upton.

I was wrong – these teas are amazing. Russell has done an amazing job sourcing and keeping them fresh. I love the green and black teas and just ordered more. If you love tea give it a shot. I suggest the sample pack as a starter.”

Evan Gornik / Bloomington, IN - USA

“I’ve finally tried your oolong teas, they are amazing. I didn’t expect such a quality for a Yunnan production, they are on par with the taiwanese good stuff. I tried a jin xuan, tie guan yin and roasted qingxin.”

“I’m a huge fan of Breakfast teas like Assam and Darjeeling, but I’ve never given Chinese teas a chance before. I picked this up just out of curiosity really but I am blown away. I didn’t expect it to be this fragrant and full of flavour. I think I’m addicted – will have to buy more!”
