Infusers


There are probably as many ways to brew tea as there are tea drinkers. But, the rule of thumb for bringing out the best flavor is to separate the leaves from the water. Whether your favorite tea is a large, whole leaf or a smaller, broken leaf, we offer a variety of easy to use infusers to keep you sipping all day.

Tea Caddies


After selecting high quality teas, it is important to store them well. As tea leaves readily absorb aromas from other sources, an air tight caddy is the best. Sunlight, and radiant heat from it, can also damage fine teas so an opaque container is advised for storing on a counter or tea table. Originally the term "kati" was used to specify a quantity of tea - around 21 oz. Now the word is applied to all manner of delightful storage containers.

Compressed Teas


Since as early as the 4th century AD tea has been compressed into various shapes. Traditionally, they are called black tea in China. The dense shapes were more efficient to transport than loose leaves and the compacted leaves were more resistant to spoilage on the way to the border regions of the Chinese empire. They were used as forms of currency in trade with the nomadic tribe of Mongolia and Tibet and are still used today in those areas. Most cakes, bricks, bowls, cones, melons or other shapes are made of Pu Erh tea, a unique, earthy tea that is preserved at a higher moisture level. Aged for 20, 30 years or even more, some are sought after buy collectors. Authentic Pu Erhs come from Yunnan Province. The black tea bricks originate from Hubei Province. Hubei bricks were well know, especially by the northern tribes.
