The Chef of Tea

Kitsune Tea is a small business based in grand junction co and was founded in 2011 by Chef Sheena Lange.

My Love for tea started when I was a young girl and I thought every proper young lady should drink tea in a tea cup with a beautiful teapot. My favorite tea when I was a little girl was peppermint and I would insist only peppermint! I would stay up late at night and read my books while sipping my favorite peppermint tea.

As I grew older I discovered many new flavors and blends of tea and my love for tea has never waned since my childhood obsession with peppermint tea ♥

My love for tea, chocolate and baking inspired me to go to culinary school and become a chef, after having accomplished this wonderful step in my life, My passion for tea and all it's accompaniments prompted me to open this lovely etsy shop and I'm so happy to have the chance to share my passion and love for Tea with you…

I personally blend and package all the Tea's at Kitsune Tea by hand.
Each and every chocolate and confection is made by me and packaged for you with care.


In the tea grading system there are five main grades used to classify tea and there are two sub categorizes which are important to the quality. The five main tea grading classifications starting from the lowest quality grade and moving to the highest 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.
