I am very much enjoying my tea. It is unique and lovely. I feel good about the company/sourcing. And, when my tracking number went missing in the inter-webs, I got a super prompt and friendly reply with updated info and friendly service. I won’t need tea for a while, but when I do, I’ll enjoy ordering again
I got several teas from you folks, I believe it was my first purchase. My wife and I agree, this is great tea. Glad we found your site. Thanks Steven

My shopping experience at Young Mountain Tea was wonderful. Fast, easy and clear. Their Eco-cart option was a wonderful surprise and one I plan to use every time I shop. Shipping was fast, the personalized note on the receipt was a joyous surprise! My tea came in a wonderful, recyclable container that is very user friendly for a visually impaired person and the tea is delicious. I highly recommend Young Mountain Tea and their Green Dragon Tea!
I drink lot of Indian style chai. The Assam black tea is just great for making my chai.
WOW! What an exquisite tea! A year ago my niece traveled to Nepal and brought back some Nepali green pearl tea for me. Now almost gone, I liked it so much I searched for a source to order more. I found Young Mountain and ordered a batch. Turns out, it’s far better than the tea from my niece. I have plenty now, and will definitely return to Young Mountain when I need more. You are on my “favorites” list of tea merchants.
This black tea differs from the usual profile you'd expect from your Darjeeling tea. A smooth, low tannin tea with pleasing fruit notes and lingering finish. I would compare this tea to both Nilgiri Black Orchid and Sun Moon Lake/Ruby 18, in terms of body and intensity. Highly recommended.
First off, this tea taught me about semi-oxidized black teas. I love learning new things and this tea sent me down a rabbit hole of how India defines oolongs and black teas. The tea itself is phenomenal. It is very complex and has the smokey and green notes. The dry leaf smells amazing. The leaf resteeps multiple times and brings out different notes.
First off, let me caution anyone from trying this tea - it will ruin all other silver needle teas. I have a lot of quality silver needle teas that now I don't want because they're not this tea.
This was so insanely good. The flavor is very complex, and includes notes of pineapple, which surprised me. It resteeped well and every sip made me go "damn, that's good". I drank it just about room temperature which brought out all the flavors. My friend and I fell in love with this tea. I definitely recommend this to everyone who likes (or wants to try) a silver needle tea.

Even before you drink this tea, you can tell that is going to be special, just by looking at the leaves. They've been carefully handled, rolled and sorted, with few stems and a nice balance between buds and larger leaves. The color of the liquor is a beautiful bright amber. And the mouthfeel has a wonderful astringency that brings a pucker to your lips while never being bitter. Whenever I am in the mood for a mouthwatering cuppa (and I think that is going to be often!), this is going to be my go-to tea.
This is one of the first purchases I've made from Young Mountain Teas. Forget that the price of the tea is better than other comparable Darjeelings in the market; forget that the the farmers who create the tea get a better share of the proceeds; forget that the order comes promptly and cheerfully to your doorstep right when they say it will. All that really matters is what is in the leaf, and what is there is excellent. It brews a clear, cognac-colored liquor with the classic, floral Darjeeling aroma. The body of the tea is balanced. Its aftertaste is clean and its flavor malty with roasted notes. A fine tea.
Love this bundle, it’s a great starter set.
This tea is so much fun to drink. It is complex with a great mouth feel and it seems to keep changing. Aroma is rich and fruity. I taste a hint of chocolate and perhaps even a little smokiness. Just enough astringency to be interesting and refreshing.
I couldn’t decide on a green tea to order so I got this bundle. I love them all!
