Learn About Tea

Welcome to the start of your tea journey with us.

There are a variety of ways to learn about tea: studying online, reading books, communicating with tea enthusiasts, or visiting tea fields and factories to learn from tea makers themselves.

We believe there is no substitution for learning first-hand from tea growers and makers at the source. That is why we visit our tea makers every year, not only to select our teas but also to study the process of tea making, observe innovations in tea processing techniques, and note changes in market conditions in China. Every year that goes by teaches us more and unveils that there is so much more yet to learn.

Feel free to contact us at anytime with your comments and questions! We’re more than happy to help you along your tea journey!
