DO YOU PROVIDE BREWING INSTRUCTIONS?
Our tea subscription is designed for those new to loose-leaf tea so don’t worry, you’re in good hands with us! On the back of every tea pouch, you’ll find easy-to-follow brewing guidelines highlighting the quantity of tea required, the ideal water temperature and the brewing duration to make that perfect cup. The guidelines also mention potential add-ons that go well with each tea.
WHAT ELSE IS INCLUDED IN THE BOX?
We believe that tea is much more enjoyable once you connect with it and understand the art behind a good cup. To help you with this process, we include a Discovery Card explaining a different aspect of tea each month; as well as illustrated Tasting Notes giving you details about the origin, processing and flavour profile of the teas.
Your first subscription box also contains a beautiful titanium tea measurement spoon; and a high-quality metal strainer that you can use to infuse the tea leaves either in a pot or a cup.
WHAT TYPES OF TEA WILL YOU SEND ME?
Our subscription programme is all about discovery and adventure, so you can expect to receive all types of tea: White, Green, Yellow, Oolong, Black and Dark (Puerh) during the 12-month programme.
All teas are in loose-leaf format – no teabags! We’ve worked hard to ensure that all our teas are of high quality and representative of a spectrum of flavours.
CAN I CHOOSE WHAT TEAS TO RECEIVE?
Our subscription programme is all about discovering new teas and learning what makes a tea. The teas in each box are not chosen randomly but carefully selected based on a certain theme. It’s precisely for this reason that we’re unable to offer a personalised choice of teas. Not knowing what teas you will receive is part of the adventure, and we’re sure you’ll love what we’ll be sending you!
CAN I CHOOSE THE FREQUENCY / QUANTITY OF TEA DELIVERED?
Unfortunately that’s not possible at this stage. Each box contains four teas (20 grams each) and is dispatched once a month.
HOW MUCH TEA DOES EACH BOX CONTAIN?
Regardless of whether you subscribe monthly or for 3, 6 or 12 months, each box contains 80 grams of tea, split between 4 teas. The quantities are ideal for you to form an impression of each tea and they will give you 32-90 cups of tea, depending on the box – so hopefully enough for a full month.
