    Best tea ever

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 27th 2018

    I have been drinking English Breakfast all my life. My cousin from London brought me some of this over on a visit and I got hooked. I'm so glad they carry it on since they don't sell it in any stores here in the States (that I know of). Do try it if you an but be aware that no other tea is good after drinking this one.

    Love it!

    I cannot say enough good things about this tea. I tried it with a little honey and no milk and it was great. I added a little milk and it was even better. It's has a lovely, smooth flavor with no astringency that I could detect, even after leaving the bags in the pot for a while. It gives some of the other gold blends that I have enjoyed a run for their money. I will definitely buy more in the future.

    A taste of Britain

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 22nd 2016

    On a recent trip to the UK, I happened to enjoy many a cuppa at Marks & Spencer. When I got back to the US, I had a strong craving for this tea. It took quite a search but finally I found Tea Dog. Great service and really fast shipping. The tea itself if perfect- smooth and strong without being bitter. I drink a pot every day and will soon have to order more.

    The best tea

    Posted by CTH on Aug 9th 2016

    If you like English tea and are not familiar with M&S then I highly recommend you to try this. We are Brits and like our tea and this, quite honestly, is the best everyday tea.

    Truly Outstanding Tea!

    Posted by kanjiro on Nov 4th 2015

    Well, I have to agree this tea is extraordinarily delicious, the first time I tried it, I was kind of struck by how different it tasted, but now it's by far my favorite tea. The flavor profile on this tea is just phenomenal.

    When I go to the cupboard to treat myself, this tea gets the nod.

    Hooray for Andrew!

    Posted by Janet Macrae on Sep 28th 2013

    I have been asking Teadog to stock M & S for years, mostly because it's hard to find and also because I can get it along with all my other favorites here.
    This is my favorite tea of all, and I have tried many. Knowing what type of blend and where the teas are grown is a big help in choosing. If you like a "malty", strong tea that doesn't get bitter, and you don't want to see the bottom of the cup, This is it. This might sound like an endorsement of the Extra Strong blend and I do enjoy it also but the Gold, to me, tastes way better.
    So, please buy a bunch so they will continue to stock M & S. And a great big Atta'boy to Andrew!!!! Thanks a bunch.

    What do you have for breakfast?

    Posted by Robert George on Sep 26th 2013

    I have never lived in the UK but two of my kids were educated there and I have spent a lot of time looking for the ideal cup of tea. I tried F & M and a number of specialty stores but I would always come back to the Marks and Sparks Gold Label. For value it is the best in the world that I found.
