What makes this tea club unique?

Verdant’s CSA-style tea of the month club is unlike any other subscription tea box in the world.

We’ve been working with many of the same farmer families for over twelve years, and turn over complete control each month to our farmer friends and partners to curate. This means that you get to benefit from our decades of relationship building by getting direct access to the freshest, most unique teas in the world, direct from award-winning small farmers growing tea on stunning, clean and biodiverse land, hand-picking and finishing every leaf.

When our partners can plan on sending you a tea box ahead of time, they can take risks with daring and experimental new processing styles, or allocate unusual cultivars that normally never make it to market. Their outreach and curation brings recognition back to their community, and in return, we all get to enjoy teas unlike anything else out there.

Where do your teas come from?

All of our teas are picked, crafted, and packed by six small family farms across China. Our partners send their tea to our fulfillment center near Laoshan Village in Shandong, where it is then sent on to our US-forwarding center in Minnesota. Your boxes are assembled and sent directly to you from the Unites States, where our customer service team is based in Minneapolis, MN. We give you the direct-from source transparency and unique product of a China-based company with the support and care of a US-based company. The best of both worlds!

What is normally included in a monthly box?

Because each box is curated by the farmer like a CSA, each month’s offerings will look a little different. This club is an opportunity to connect with a real farmer, learn more about their goals and taste their teas. You will receive at least three kinds of tea and at least 75 grams of tea total. Some farmers may choose to offer a wider array of samples to give you the best exposure to what they do, so you could receive up to 15 different samples in a given box. The total tea will still be 75g or more. As directed by each of our partners we will include any information they want you to know about what they do, and sometimes, coupons to use on their collections on our website.

How does shipping and payment work?

When you sign up for a recurring monthly subscription for the tea club, you will enter your payment information. Recurring subscriptions will be billed $30 at check out upon sign up; this first charge will apply to your first box, which will ship around the 15th of the month without billing your card again. For all subsequent months, subscriptions will bill on the 15th of each month. You can update your credit card information or change your shipping address any time before your subscription bills each month.

When you sign up for a bulk subscription of the tea club, you will enter your payment information and complete payment for either 3-months, 6-months, or 12-months at checkout. Your tea club boxes will ship around the 15th of each month, until the end of your bulk subscription. You will not be charged again, unless you sign up for a new subscription. Your subscription will not automatically renew at the end of your subscription period; we will include a reminder in your last box in case you would like to sign up for another subscription!

When will I receive my tea?

Tea club boxes will be shipped within one week of the 15th of each month.

Select club boxes - for example April, May and September club boxes - will always ship later in the month due to the timing of the very fresh seasonal harvests that are included in those months. We will alert club members via email whenever the ship date will not occur within one week of the 15th of that month.

Once shipped, transit times vary by country. Every monthly box ships with full tracking info to ensure that they arrive promptly at your door.

For select international destinations, we can bundle your monthly tea club boxes together bi-monthly or quarterly in order to minimize your shipping costs. Please contact us directly if you would like us to use a custom international shipping option for your subscription.

Can you ship outside of the United States?

Yes we can! Shipping to Canada is $15. Other international destinations vary by country and can cost up to $15 a month. See our full shipping FAQ to learn more.
