We buy an enormous amount of these and the quality varies substantially. In early 2007 the quality was quite poor with wicks often off centre and the bags generally filled with tiny bits of wax and often the candles detached from the metal rings. in mid 2007 the quality improved beyond what we had previously experienced with no bits, clean bags(internal) and quality wicks. as xmas approached the tea lights received reverted back to those we experienced previously. i can only assume a change of supplier some time through the year for the better but now you have returned to the previous supplier. we will continue to buy these from you because the provide good value for the quantity we buy but..... our customer satisfaction is a great deal less since you changed back to your original supplier.
