Centuries of Gifting Tea

For centuries, gifting tea to others has been viewed as a sign of respect in many cultures. Tea is gifted in times of celebration, during courtship, as part of marriage or death rituals, for medicinal purposes, and to strengthen social bonds. In a spiritual sense, to give a gift is to give away a part of yourself. The simple exchange of gifts can create or strengthen mutually dependent ties between the gift giver and the recipient.

With thousands of years of history at your side, the gifting of tea conveys not only an act of generosity or admiration, it’s also an opportunity to share something healthful, renewing and comforting. Your gift invites the recipient to enjoy the virtues that come with a great tea experience – physically and emotionally.

New Gift Set Options

We’ve put together two new sampler packs just for the holidays showcasing some of our most intriguing green, oolong and black teas priced quite simply at under $25 per set.

With each set, the recipient can taste their way through a variety of exquisite teas representing several prominent tea cultures. Each set yields about 45 eight-ounce servings plus re-steeps and will include our Brewing Tips information card. The set is presented in a reusable, environmentally friendly burlap drawstring pouch or may be upgraded to one of our formal gift boxes with the addition of a stainless steel infuser.

    “In my own hands I hold a bowl of tea; I see all of nature represented in its green color. Closing my eyes, I find green mountains and pure water within my own heart. Silently sitting alone and drinking tea, I feel these become a part of me.” --Sen Soshitsu, Tea Grand Master
