    Outstanding in all aspects

    Posted by Simona on 21st Feb 2023

    I had purchased Matcha green tea and WAWAZA generously sent a sample of the Persimmon leaves tea. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately placed an order for several of their herbal teas. Everything is impeccably fresh, clean, flavorful, and delicious. The flavor is intriguing and perfect to drink unsweetened. To me, it has a bit of persimmon fruit nuances. WAWAZA herbal teas are the only teas I trust and purchase. I strongly recommend these teas to anyone. Also, packaging is thoughtful, simple but beautiful, without waste. Consideration, care, and attention to details are noticeable in everything WAWAZA does. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. Shipping to US takes exactly the time estimated on the website and the package arrives in perfect condition every time. A grateful thank you for everything!
