MY REVIEW BEGINS
Here is what I think
First I have to say I reached out to Teh Ku for some clarification on their tea and they did not return my message. I gave them some time, and no response so, my review is this.
My children were in Ohio for an Buckeyes game and they stopped into Teh Ku and purchase me this tea, knowing my favorite tea is an Earl Grey. I wrote to the company because the ingredient list did not match what was in the bag and this tea was less then Earl Grey and more like water. I was deeply disappointed.
I took almost double the 1.5 tsp to make a cup of decent tea and you can see from the picture, the flowers, corn flower and other herbs not listed on the label.
I first went to check their website and the site was down, for me this is a warning that possibly the company is not doing well, or possibly making changes, then with no response I felt the best to do was to write my review and let the review fall where it may.
I will forever be honest in my reviews and never fluff or sugar coat a tea or any product I review, if a company is not producing what they say then I have the responsibility to tell you.
So, my review is not good for Teh Ku is not good with a lack luster tea, no website and no response.
I’d be cautious shopping there, I’m not sure what is going on.
Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
