A Sneak Peek at March 2023

A Sneak Peek at March 2023

Happy March, tea lovers!

To welcome the winds of March, we’re happy to announce that our orders are in for the 2023 fresh harvest of teas! Some years, we’re lucky enough to get teas in the door of our warehouse within 2 WEEKS of the date they’re plucked. If you’re like us and love a pure tea (which means not blended with other teas or flavored), there is nothing like opening a bag of tea that's this fresh.

March also means it’s time for the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, one of our favorite and most looked forward to events. Due to the pandemic, it's been a few years since we've been able to attend in person, but this is where we meet our tea providers from all over the world and taste as many teas as we can, ensuring your boxes contain an excellent variety of teas that are top of the line in quality.

We can’t wait to share our finds with you!

Enjoy this month’s teas!
