A large pot of tea will serve 4 -6 cups of tea depending on the size of your cup (and your pot) making a pot of tea about $2.40 on average! That’s less than a gallon of milk or any name brand sport drink. An entire pot of tea costs less than one CUP of coffee from your favorite coffee house. Now you can see how loose leaf tea is considered one of the most affordable, healthy and unique beverages on the planet, right?

 

We carefully select teas that we think you will enjoy and ones that are truly unique! You won’t find teas like Texas Gold Rush, Pecan Pie Rooibos or Blood Orange Pu-erh at your local market! We will consistently provide you with fabulous tea at a fabulous price so you can enjoy them without breaking the bank or getting bored.
