We source teas from only reputable, top farms and estates, that provide a premium tea while participating in fair practices.

  7. What’s the difference between Traditional, Blended, & Herbal Teas?

    Traditional teas come from the Camellia Sinensis, an evergreen plant native to Asia. They can be either black, green, white, yellow or oolong depending on the oxidation and processing. Traditional teas are pure tea without any additives.

    Blended teas are traditional teas blended with different herbs, fruit, plants, and spices to create specific flavored teas.

    Herbal teas are sometimes known as tisanes, they are strictly a blend of herbs, fruit, plants, or spices to create a tea-like blend. They are not derived from the Camellia Sinensis.

  8. How do I brew my tea?

    The way you brew your tea will depend on the individual tea. All of our teas come with a brewing guide located on the package. As a general rule of thumb, the chart below shows typical temperatures and times.

    Green Tea 160 – 180 °F 3 – 4 Minutes
    Black Tea Just below 212 °F 5 Minutes
    Herbal Tea 212 °F 5 Minutes
    White Tea 200 °F 7 – 10 Minutes
    Oolong Tea 190 °F 4 – 5 Minutes
  9. What is Matcha?

    Matcha is a traditional Japanese Green Tea that is from shade-grown tea leaves, stone ground into a fine powder and then mixed into water as opposed steeped. Learn more about Matcha here.

  10. How can I keep my Matcha from clumping up when mixing?

    Matcha is typically mixed with a bamboo whisk as opposed to stirring with a spoon. We recommend getting a bamboo whisk that has a minimum of 80 prongs (preferably 100+) which you can get here. In the case you don’t have a Matcha Bamboo Whisk available, you can substitute with an electric milk frother.

  11. What is a Micro-Blend?

    When we create our loose leaf tea blends, we blend in small batches typically under 10 pounds. This allows us to create a perfect blend, achieving the desired flavor. We always use 100% premium traditional teas as the base of our blends, never the bottom of the barrel mix that is common in larger mass produced teas blends.
