The order was a gift and so I can't comment on the tea, but the service was fantastic: there was an issue with postage outside the seller's control but they were extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process - thank you!

Look, Smell, Feel the premium tea!

Freshness Guaranteed! ✔ Delivering WOW!

Tea is enchanting, isn't it? I believe we all love to enjoy many many cups of the finest tea. I love drinking tea, the VALUE of tea is incredible, its an elegant fresh waking up LIFESTYLE, all my stories started with a cup of fresh tea in 1996.

I grew up in a fairly cultural family, having lots of influence with the cultural comings and goings. Tea was often a part of that, taking time to sit down, connect, boil some water and have some tea.

Connecting the dots.

I found nothing but tea having the powerful influences, I believe there's a place for beer, there's a place for coffee, there's a place for wine, but what's unique with tea and really where it fits in there so perfectly is that it tastes great, its incredibly healthy for you, its good for the earth, you're getting it from small farmers all over China and Japan, cultivating the small lot products, and its uplifting!

Freshness ... Guaranteed!

I use my specially designed seal bags enabling to keep your tea as fresh as possible for as long as needed, right from the fields till your last drop. ♥.


In the tea grading system there are five main grades used to classify tea and these in turn can be further sub categorized into two important qualities. The five main tea grading classifications starting from the lowest quality grade are;

✔ D - Dust (A - ): Tea at this grading level consists of tea dust and very small pieces of tea leaves. This type of tea is the lowest grade of tea available and the cheapest on the market.

✔ F - Fanning (A): Consists mainly of very small tea leaf pieces and again is considered to be of low grade.

✔ B.O.P - Broken Orange Pekoe: (AA) This is the mid grading of tea and tea at this grade will consist of either pieces of larger tea leaves or smaller whole tea leaves.

✔ O.P. - Orange Pekoe (AAA): Tea included at this grade will be made of larger sized whole tea leaves. However the bud or flowering bud of the tea plant will not be present.

✔ F.O.P. - Flowery Orange Pekoe (AAAA): This is the highest grade of the five main classifications and contains only large whole leaves and the flowering portion of the plant.

And the two main sub categories important to the quality of tea are;

✔ Golden: Designating that the leaves are of a golden hue and of superior quality.

✔ Tippy: Which designates that young tea buds are present within the tea in abundance.

As for the size of the tea leaves, the standard dictates that the whole larger tea leaves receive a higher grading as opposed to smaller and cut leaves. Also, the smaller the cut of the leaf the lower grade that is given to the tea. For example Tea Fannings and Dust, as used in tea bags, have the lowest grading for quality.

★ White Tea - minimally oxidized of all the Teas. Its delicate, its low in caffeine, its smooth, its generally buttery and a little creamy.

★ Green Tea - is really one of two types. Rock fired or steamed, it has a little more grassy or a spinach kind of flavor profile.

★ Oolong Tea, or semi-oxidized, Oolong Tea is half way between Green and Black. If you want some caffeine, Oolong Tea has it.

★ Black Tea - In China Black Tea is known as Red Tea. Black Tea is more stringent, more full-bodied, fully oxidized and has more caffeine.

★ Pu-erh Tea - Its an aged Tea, it can be piled fermented and served or delivered whole leaf, or can be aged in cases. I would think about it like the blue cheese of Tea.

★ Herbal Infusions - or "Tisane". Tisane is really not made up of anything related to Tea, they are instead leaves, berries, roots, herbs. NO caffeine.
These are the categories!
