Best Loose Leaf Teas

We are pleased to offer the best loose teas. We offer only loose teas as we believe it offers the best flavor. Our teas are sourced from around the world.

This pages shows all the teas we offer. Use our menu to look for the various styles such as Green Teas or Flavored Black Teas.  An alternative way to find teas would be to navigate by Category.  Here we have listed our teas by Organic, Sleep Ease etc.  

Black Teas - Most black teas are grown in the former English colonies like India, Sir Lanka, and parts of the Africa. Black teas were actually introduced to the English by the Chinese.  The Chinese actually prefer green teas but they choose to sell the English black teas.  The reason they did was probably the fact that black teas would travel better than the more delicate the green teas.  The English loved all teas so much that it created a trade deficit and then war.  Read the blog post about the Opium War.

Flavored Black Teas. To add a little flavor to plain black teas, blenders added flavoring to teas.  An old favorite recipe is Earl Grey which is made with the addition of an Italian citrus Bergamot.   Our most popular teas happens to be a flavored black teas especially Hot Cinnamon Spice.  With it deep spicy flavor powered by cinnamon and clove it has been called "Christmas in cup".  The cloves creates a sweet counterpoint to the cinnamon.  This classic is also available in decaf and makes a great night time cuppa.

Whatever styles of teas you like, we offer over 100 teas in many styles to choose from.  

Green Teas - Green teas are most popular in Japan and China.  In Japan the varieties of green teas are limited but in China there are many more varieties.  One of our more popular of Chinese teas is Jasmine Dragon Pearls.  

White Teas - White teas are probably the oldest of the teas as the leaves are only dried and this process was simple. Fact and legend are hard to separate since teas were first discovered in 2737 BC and facts get blurry over time.  The first teas were probably brewed as green leaves and perhaps some were dried and preserved to enjoy in the colder seasons.  

Oolong Teas - are half way between green and black teas in color and taste.  The oxidation or the agitation of the leaves which causes the leaf to be crushed. The amount of this oxidation is greatly reduced in the making of Oolong teas.

Herbal & Fruit Teas  This final category is a catch all for the non-teas. Technically speaking all teas comes from a specific plant called Camellia sinensis. Americans call any dried herb, fruit or plant that is steeped in hot water teas. In French, Tisane means infusion and we refer to our fruit and herbal teas as such.  Our tisanes contain flowers like hibiscus, herbs like rose hip, fruit like mango, apple and pineapple which brew up a delicious cuppa. 

Our herbal selection also includes straight herbs like chamomile, ginger etc.  Lots of customers like to drink the herbals straight or mixed into other teas.  A popular trick is to blend a pinch of lavender into green teas.
