- Back in the Saddle!

If you haven't noticed, our website has recently undergone some structural and functional changes.  We have revamped in order to provide you with an easier, more enjoyable shopping experience.  Here are some of the changes you may notice:

1.  Better, Clearer Pictures. From the long, twisted variety to the hand-rolled pearls of tea, now you can view our teas in the exquisite detail that they deserve.

2.  More Variety. We have countless varieties of teas in stock and endless blending options, but until now only a selected portion of these have been available to you.  Our motto?  If we can blend it, you can buy it.  Make sure to browse our tea shop to see all that has been added, including a line of decaffeinated teas, chai teas, holiday varieties and tea accessories.

3.  Tea Accessories. We will have a rotating stock of beautiful, hand crafted teapots appearing in the "Accessories" section of our tea shop.  You will always find infusers and teabags in this section, but make sure to check back often for the teapots.  We carry only one of each, so the pots available will be changing frequently.

4.  Blogging. We're doing it.  For those of you reading this blog, you likely have noticed that we haven't posted one in over two years.  That doesn't mean that there hasn't been anything going on, on the contrary we have been growing exponentially and our office has been buzzing nonstop with news.  We simply haven't delivered it to the forefront.  With the introduction of our revised website, this is changing.

So keep posted - you can expect to hear from me soon!

The first time I tried chai was in the kitchen of my parent’s house, and served by my younger sister.  “You have to taste this—” she insisted, pushing a mug across the countertop to me.  She refused to elaborate on its contents.  The flavors, she said, would speak for themselves.

Considering Water

Water quality is essential for brewing good tea. Photo by Damien A WeidnerThe quality of water affects the taste of your tea; this is beyond dispute.  The relative quantities of mineral salts, oxygen and trace elements determine the relative "liveliness" or "flatness" of a particular cup. To that simple substance we add the basic flavor of the leaf itself or an herbal substitute.

Comfort and Refreshment

Comfort and Refreshment from tea. Photo by by ChicagoSageComfort is a complex idea; it evokes childhood memories, a feeling of safely and warmth. Anyone who started drinking tea when they were young, or anyone who lives in a cold climate, knows the soothing warmth of a hot beverage.
