Our story of tea began on the streets of Granada, Spain. While enjoying a casual walk during our honeymoon, our noses led us to a small shop where large bushels of scented leaves were on display.
We were unaware at the time that we were looking at tea in its natural form. The shop owner explained how tea begins in this loose form, but through commercialization, it ends up being finely chopped and mangled into tiny leaves, often called "fannings" or tea dust. This process destroys many of the essential oils that make tea a healthy, tasty beverage.
After this experience, our goal became to locate the best teas from around the world, from the best growers, and introduce them to our friends and family. It was these scented leaves that changed our lives and we hope they will change yours as well.
