Explorer Tea Box
The Explorer Tea Box is for those familiar with tea bags and general tea descriptions, such as black tea, white tea, and green tea, who want to get more experience in the world of loose leaf tea and tea culture.
Find out the origins of tea and the six basic types. Explore the differences that terroir (the environmental factors from the unique ecology and farming practices that affect the taste and aroma from teas grown in a specific place) has on the same types of teas grown in different places. Discover how traditional and artisan manufacturing takes one plant and makes it into thousands of different teas from all around the world.
We’ll teach you how to tell the difference between pan-fired and steamed, rolled and twisted, oxidized and fermented using teas from countries and regions all around the globe. Come explore!
The Explorer Tea Box features:
- Three different types of loose leaf tea delivered each month (at least 2 ounces worth combined for approximately 25-30 cups).
- Fill-your-own tea bags and brewing instructions.
- Information about the type, place of origin, terroir, and history of each tea.
- Educational information and resources about tea history, culture, brewing techniques, health information and more.
- Free shipping.
The first box is always a Tea 101 Box with six samples (one of each style) and basic tea information to get you started.
