We don't serve just any tea. We serve the best!
The first time I came across Mighty Leaf (one of the brands we carry), I was at the Ritz Carlton. For those who aren't familiar, the Ritz has an entire floor called the Club Floor. On the Club Floor, at certain times of the day, culinary treats are offered. Beverages, however, are served all day!
I scanned the selection and didn't find the classic teas I was accustomed to. The presentation was beautiful and after the first sip I was hooked! This experience started an obsession with quality teas.
Just like coffee and wine, tea offers up not just a specific flavor, but culture and history as well.
All tea comes from the same plant. That is of course unless it is herbal tea. The processes of harvesting, aging, roasting, blending and scenting are what give tea not only it's caffeine content, but it's unique flavor as well.
