“On a daily basis, I am tackling the challenge of making tea more accessible and enjoyable to people, and little by little I’m making progress on that goal.”

With Sri Lankan and Chinese roots, Sashee Chandran has always considered tea a pivotal ritual in her life. "I was always drawn to the intimate and communal nature of tea, and its ability to strengthen the bonds of friends and strangers alike," she says. Through her natural inclination to make, share, and talk tea with others, she came across many who found the traditional tea rituals too daunting or time consuming. Her tender drops initiate an all-encompassing experience with the rich taste and tradition of loose tea, and a pinch of raw organic sugar for a no-fuss preparation.

I received a box of tea drops as a birthday gift and I absolutely love it! They taste amazing and I even had enough drops to share! The packaging was interesting, the wooden box containing the tea was nicely soldered. My only complaint is that the tea isn't very sweet, but I have a crazy at tooth so take that with a grain of salt. Overall I think this makes a perfect gift for tea lovers and it shows that you know what the receiver likes.

I'm disappointed in these. I'm a loose tea lover who saw these and thought they'd be great when I wanted something quick and easy. I should have simply ground up my loose leaf tea and drank that. These tea drops are simply finely ground tea and sugar. The sugar dissolves, but the tea does not. It's not a matter of a few specks either. The lighter tea like the peppermint floats and you have to drink (or chew) through about a quarter of an inch of tea grinds to get to the rest of your cup. Then there's another thick layer at the bottom. It's a shame because I enjoyed the taste but not the consistency. Looks great and has cute packaging so many probably think it's a great gift. Unfortunately it doesn't live up to its promise in use.

Looks cute, tastes bad

By

Comments about UncommonGoods Tea Drop Sampler:

The packaging is gorgeous, but the tea is unpleasant and has a bitter aftertaste. After trying each flavor, I threw out all the tea.

Delicious without adding anything but hot water!

By 

from Sacramento, Ca

Comments about UncommonGoods Tea Drop Sampler:

The packaging is beautiful and can be used again. The tea taste rich for lack of a better word, but does dissolve. The little shapes for different flavors=a bonus! I add water to my mug to warm it up and get at least 2 mugs of tea from one sample. Excellent product.
