Our collection of global tea represents all the traditional tea producing nations with their signature varieties. Over the past 4000 years, the tea plant spread to each of these nations, where it took on a unique form and flavor due to the regional terroir, namely the local soil quality, humidity, altitude, and temperature. Each region also developed specialized methods of processing the tea leaf to obtain a particular taste and form. Shaped by the traditions of their culture, local tea masters are still developing and perfecting regional tea around the world. Explore our collection!
Caffeine naturally occurs in the tea plant, causing all traditional teas to have a naturally occurring amount level of caffeine. Chemical processes can be used to extract most of the caffeine from tea leaves, however we do not carry these processed decaf teas. We do, however, have a variety of herbal teas that are naturally 100% caffeine free. On the other hand, other traditional teas are naturally highly caffeinated. These create a sustained buzz that won't result in the familiar unwanted "crash" that often follows coffee.
Our hojicha (or houjicha) is roasted fresh as noted by it's outstanding aroma. A traditional Japanese green tea, hojicha is naturally lower in caffeine yet more robust in flavor than most other green teas due to its roasted character. This brews into a clean, amber liquor with a warm nutty aroma. It's both soothing to drink this on cold winter days and refreshing to drink it iced.

Green tea is rich in powerful antioxidants, and has been known to fight viruses and slow aging. Green tea aids in weight loss, reduces "bad" cholesterol, boosts the immune system, and is also associated with the prevention of cancer. Green tea is widely used as a natural preservative in food and cosmetics. It even looks fresh and healthy! Green helps overweight people shed excess fat without side effects. It may help modulate calorie and fat burning through the sympathetic nervous system, the adrenal glands and specific nerve chemicals. Green tea shows fat-burning properties beyond those explained by its caffeine content.

Author: Karen L'Heureux I love the flavor of this tea, it is sooo comforting as well as satisfying
Author: Mandy L Super wholesome and well rounded in its flavor. And it cuts my appetite!
Author: anne delano This is a great green tea! I was never crazy about green tea as I thought they were much too weak but this roasted green tea has converted me. It brews a lovely amber color with just enough robustness for a black tea lover like myself
Author: Michelle Was never a big fan of green tea but this kind is a lot more robust (like it says) and the taste is awesome. Love it!
Author: Stan Jones I am loving this tea! I like the flavor a lot, and the fact that is has less caffine than other green teas. It is great hot, or chilled!
