Tea forte



I think the Tea forte packaging is gorgeous - both the teabag itself and the various presentation boxes. The silken fabric weave allows the whole leaf, flowers and herbs to show through and the pyramid shape is ingenious. The flat bottom allows the teabag to stand up in the cup as it infuses the brew around it. I can't think of a better present for tea lovers and the packaging reminds me a bit of the way Wagashi, traditional Japanese cakes, are often presented as gifts.

These are totally beautiful, and would make perfect gifts for several people I know. Thanks for writing about them.

My mother found some of these in one of our local health food stores a while ago and she bought some for me. I can attest that they are good quality and taste very good in addition to the pretty design.


these are very lovely, and from the comments, and various reviews i've looked up after seeing this post, i'm going to recommend these to our Research Team at (name deleted) Concierge as gift suggestions, or additions to a gift basket, for our high-end customers.

i'm also going to recommend your site for interesting options.

thank you for your post.


Another testimonial: an "urban winery" in Downtown St. Louis serves Forte teas, and besides the visual drama of the packaging, it's fascinating to watch one steep as a cloud of color grows around the spire. More importantly, they are quite flavorful, with every note working in harmony (no awkward, inexplicable bitterness as some "fancy" teas have).

I've had them before. Very tasty. Felt all fancy having my cup of tea.


Wonderful find, I will be ordering these if I can.
