A customer asked whether our teas were “fair trade” and we answered “some.” To clarify, we explained that the teas not officially “certified fair trade” come from villages that have been supported by tea continuously for over 1500 years and that such an improbable history illustrates extraordinarily sustainable business practices. Plus all of our teas are sourced direct. So, we know exactly where our money is going! When it comes to socially responsible business practices, we remain humble in our belief that we stand to learn more from our growers and producers than they can learn from us!

A pixelated glimpse at the boxes being created for our two new bagged teas.  We’re bagging two full leaf teas.  One is an iteration of our #3 (a black tea we created from some wonderful Long Jing cultivars grown on the volcanic Putuo Island off the coast of China) and a beautifully spiral rolled tea from the Hunan province.  This new tea possesses all the umami characteristics associated with this massive growing region and I found it while searching for an Anhua Fu Brick tea worthy of including in our lineup.
