Bought this as a gift, and shame on me for not investigating further, but this amount of tea will barely make one cup of tea much less a pot as described in the item description. I can't speak to the quality of the item (since this was purchased as a gift), which I'm sure is fine, but listing doesn't represent well what you actually will receive.

Hi! So sorry you feel that way. I describe the tea as "a 1 ounce tea tin container" to help those to understand the size of the tea. Those involved in tea know that this is usually described as sample sizes. I guess I am assuming all my tea buyers are aware of what a 1 ounce tea tin looks like and how much tea can fit in the tin. I will look into better wording/descriptions so even non-tea drinkers understand this. I hope your friend will enjoy the tea anyways. The size of the tea will not change the taste, so your friend can always purchase a bigger size of her/his favorites! Thanks again for your order and feedback!

3rd Coast Kitchen ~ Artisanal Creations with Southern Hospitality

Hi! My name is Christy and cooking and baking are my passions. As a military wife, I have traveled the world, learning and creating recipes from the knowledge passed on to me from others. I've always enjoyed entertaining and would love to create something special for your party, dinner or maybe just for you! EVERYTHING is handmade by me, no mass productions here. I take great pride in developing all my recipes. I can do custom orders so please email me if you have a certain type of cookie or treat you would like.

That being said, NO, I can not compete with those perfect, mass produced products. Mine will always look slightly homemade and rustic....Why? Because it's true! But I believe that this shows my pride in my creations and you know you are getting the best ingredients out there. I have no preservatives and artificial chemicals in my items. I only use the best butter, organic eggs, and high quality vanilla and flours. My prices reflect this. I make no money on shipping. Though shipping may seem high, I ship USPS flat rate priority mail to ensure you receive your goodies fresh. The shipping also covers all the packaging to ensure your order gets to you intact. Cookies are heat sealed AND tied off with a coordinating ribbon. Each bag is then placed in a bubble wrap pouch, enclosing the whole package with bubble wrap. Cake balls and tea collections will come in a kraft box filled with paper shreds. The box is also sticker sealed and tied off with a coordinating ribbon. ALL my items make for great gifts.

Thanks for stopping by and browsing through my shop. I hope you find some things you like and I look forward to helping you celebrate your special event with my mouth watering creations!

All items are packaged ready to gift give. Cookies will be heat sealed and packaged 2 to a bag (unless cookies are too big). IF you prefer them to be individually wrapped and sealed a slight up-charge will be added to cover costs and time of extra packaging. Please indicate this upon ordering. A coordinating ribbon finishes off the whole package. These are then placed in bubble wrap bags to ensure safe delivery. Once received all you need to do is pull them out of the bubble wrap bags. Voila! Gift giving ready.

Cake bites will come in a windowed box, nestled in a coordinating gold candy tray. A coordinating ribbon and sticker seal will finish off the final packaged box.

Specialty tea collections will be delivered in a windowed box, nestled in a coordinating tray to ensure safe delivery. A coordinating ribbon and sticker seal will finish off the final packaged box. A cardstock with the tea names and descriptions will also be included between the window and tea tins.
