Frequently Asked Questions

How does loose leaf tea compare to tea bags? Is loose leaf tea easy to brew?

Loose leaf tea is almost always fresher and better tasting than tea bags. Because it doesn't need to be processed by a machine for bagging, the leaves are whole and unbroken, and the tea is more flavorful. Fine loose leaf tea can be brewed many times, usually making it cheaper per cup than tea bags. Plus, its super easy to prepare tea with no special equipment. Learn More

Where do your teas come from?

We give you the direct-from source transparency and unique product of a China-based company with the support, care, and speedy shipping of a US-based company. The best of both worlds!

Is your tea organic or fair trade?

The small farmers we work with go far beyond industry organic standards, using innovative techniques to produce the best tea possible. Our teas are not commodities, they are hand-crafted products with individuals behind them who can set a fair price and take pride in their land and techniques. The core of our sourcing principles lies in exceeding all existing standards for taste, environmental stewardship and ethics.
