"Dear Spices of India, I ordered spearmint tea from your website as it's almost impossible to buy in shops. It arrived in great condition and much sooner than I'd expected. Very impressed with your website, products and service. I'm looking forward to ordering some of your ingredients and recipe books. I would highly recommend your website and have already passed your details on to family members. My partner and brother are both big lovers of Indian food so I'll be checking out your website when it comes to looking for birthday gifts for both of them."
