Top Quality Teas
All our teas are taste-tested or “cupped” regularly to make sure we always offer only top quality teas. A tea’s quality can fluctuate quite a bit from year to year and sometimes just from flush to flush depending on weather and the estates’ management. It is very important to taste regularly. Some companies make much ado about the freshness of their teas but their improper storage or premature packaging of their tea makes young tea old before its time.
We have a freshness method we employ to make sure the tea you receive is the freshest available. We make sure that our tea gets very little oxygen to keep it safe from premature aging and scent contamination. Your tea is flash-packed after you order it so it does not spend unnecessary time sitting on a shelf. Our packaging is ideal for keeping your tea fresh while you use it at home.
