Tea is made from leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, which is a warm weather evergreen shrub of the Camellia family, indigenous to both China and India. The finest whole leaf organic teas use only the top two leaves and bud of the tea plant.
When left alone in the wild, the Camellia sinensis can grow quite tall, up to 30 feet or more. But for cultivation of tea leaves, the bushes are mostly kept trimmed for easier harvesting. A typical tea bush produces around 3,000 tea leaves per year.
Tea Types: Tea, like wine, always comes from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. It is in the way that tea is processed that makes it a black, green, or white tea. Red teas and herbal teas, meanwhile, are actually not tea at all. Rather they are simply herbs, fruits or spices – often called “tisanes”.

We believe tea is endlessly engaging, brings people together, provides a sense of peace and well-being, and grants of a moment to yourself when you most need it. Great tea touches upon art, defines a sense of culture, marks a ritual, and offers a sense of connoisseurship. But a truly remarkable cup of tea is one which enhances the everyday.
