Praise from a very knowledgeable customer

I am not one to toot my own horn. Instead, I prefer it when others do it for me. Here is a recent letter from a customer who does just that:

Hello Mellow Monk,

Its been awhile since I last placed and order with your company, and I must admit that's because I've been shopping around. You see, I am not a rich man. I, like many, have limited resources, and unfortunately this sad reality applies my tea budget as well. Consequently, I have been sampling a variety of less expensive green teas from 100s of other, less reputable sources only to ultimately find disappointment and low quality from these unnamed tea producers. I have yet to find a tea that can, in my opinion, equal the exquisite color, flavor, or aroma of your superlative green tea, and I have determined life is too short to continue looking. Sufficed to say, I'm back and I will never stray again. You have found a follower in me Mellow Monk, and after sampling the competition I will gladly pay the higher price to enjoy your most excellent product.


Thank you so much, Ryan. If there's one thing I have absolute confidence in, it's in the quality of our green tea. This tea is the real deal—authentic Japanese green tea grown by traditional methods on honest-to-goodness family-owned and -operated tea farms in the mountains of Aso, Japan. Of course, all the credit goes to our growers, but I do feel honored to be able to offer this tea outside of Japan for the first time ever. This is a great time for green-tea aficionados like you, Ryan, and I'm excited to be a part of the changes going on—because these changes are enabling aficionados like you to find green tea like ours.
