Tea is all about giving. Talk to any of our tea farmer friends and they will start the conversation with a cup of tea, freely given. For us and for our friends in China, there is no better expression of hospitality. When picking out your holiday gifts, rely on over a thousand years of commonsense wisdom- tea is the best gift ever.

So, why give the gift of Verdant Tea? Our work to support and sustain six individual farmer families in China guarantees us some of the most unique and fresh teas in the world, all while helping devoted families in China give back to their communities, innovate, and protect their environment. When you give the gift of Verdant Tea, everyone wins – you get access to exclusive teas unavailable anywhere else,  your friends and family get to enjoy the best tastes out there, and our partner farmers earn an excellent living.

Where do you start? We have put together a few gift ideas for every occasion, from fun stocking stuffers and everyday brewing basics to show-stopping tea wares and everything in between.

If you are giving a gift, why not choose something that gets better and better with time? Bricks of Master Han’s pu’er are great investments, getting richer, sweeter and more complex as they age. Try a beautiful brick of Master Han’s 2014 Sheng Pu’er for a tea with real investment potential, or a brick of Master Han’s 2002 Shu Pu’er wrapped in bamboo for aging.
