It's no surprise that Tea Leaf Co. teas are not stuffed into tiny tea bags. Our teas are not the dusty bagged up sweepings of the mass production line.

Our Oolong teas, for example, might increase twelve times in volume as it brews. That would require a very big tea bag!

Aside from the extensive health benefits in tea, the mere thought of this hot bevy alone immediately brings about a soothing and familiar feeling from within. From the high pitched whistling sound of the hot kettle, to the luscious aroma that releases as the steaming water gently pours over the tea leaves. To how peace and harmony take full resident of our entire being the moment we settle down with a cuppa tea in hand and escape to another world dreaming of a better tomorrow.
It’s a ritual we’ve witnessed our parents and grandparents alike, practice since the days when we were little lads and lassies. Always curious and wanting to be just like the grown-ups. It’s no wonder why we all played dressed up and created make shift tea parties with our dolls and GI Joe’s, just to mimic the adults in our world. It's ironic that we would each one day come to understand and experience the deep connection between humanity and it's love affair with tea.
