Summer's Bounty

One month left of summer tea drinking.  The end of August marks a time when gardens begin to overflow in vegetable glory and farmer's markets burst with the fruits and flowers of the season. While tea is produced oceans away, we hope that you have enjoyed getting to know the people and stories behind the teas you use to nurture, enliven and gather.  

As tea pickers and factory workers strike in Darjeeling, we are reminded that our decisions affect the future of the tea industry.  Thank you for choosing the cup of tea that represents your values. So drink with abandon friends.  Cheers.
