    • Many, many re-steeping times

      Can steep for about 5-7 times for the same amount, much more than all other loose leave tea brands (also, vs 1-2 times for tea bags).


    • Completely whole leaf teas

      Skillfully harvested leaves aren't broken during production. Whole leaves allow water to flow through, enhancing flavors and aromas.


    • No nasties

      Nothing is added - No added colours. No artificial flavours. No preservatives. No additives.


    • More nutritious

      Older tea trees in China naturally retain vitamins and minerals during growth cycles, yielding high-quality and nutrient-rich teas.
