How does your tea ship? When do I get it? We will ship your tea for free using USPS and send you a tracking number. Teas always ship within one business day of purchase, and for domestic US customers, arrive 2-4 days after shipping. All teas are packed with care in light and water-proof bags made from recycled materials and ship in sturdy cardboard boxes to keep the precious leaves safe.
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
I'm an international customer. Can I still try 5 for 5? Yes! New international customers are welcome to take advantage of 5 for 5. Due to the higher cost of shipping, you will be charged a flat rate to help us cover part of that cost.
