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.

Author: Anne really smooth loose leaf pu'erh - this is a very drinkable version of my favorite health tea. and a great deal at $30/lb!
Author: Andy Full-bodied and rich. Even though this tea is not for everyone, it's the one i drink every morning, and this is the best quality I've found at an acceptable price.
Author: Joey S. WOW! If you are trying to kick your coffee habit like I am, this is the tea to do it. Until I found this one, I didn't think any tea could match the viscosity that I enjoy so much with coffee. And you can reuse the leaves many times and the flavor keeps hanging on. I also have a sneaky suspicion that this pu'erh might be a good hangover remedy.
Author: Lacey Great red color in the infusion...
Steeps 3 times, all good.
Makes a great value if you buy it by the pound!
Author: Thomas Kirkman This is without a doubt, one of the best teas that I have had. I love it!
Author: Bill Buchanan I'm afraid I'm not a real fan of this tea. It's got a real earthy tone to it, kind of like mushrooms and mold! Absolutely no astringency, so in that regard it is very smooth. Not for me.
Author: Alex The smoothest loose Pu'erh I've ever tried. This tea is an amazing deal. I buy it by the pound.
Author: Umbreona This tea initially smells rather unpleasant as if putrid but I find the flavor is not at all what your nose is warning you of. It has the smoothest flavor of anything I have tasted; tea or otherwise. It has a very light earthy flavor akin to the lightest hint of a shitake mushroom. It quickly takes on the flavor of anything you put in it and I find that mixing Honey in as the sweetener yields absolutely delicious results.
Author: Rhonda I LOVE this tea. The smell is wonderful as you sip the entire cup and adds to the flavor. If you close your eyes, you can see rich earth, walnuts and warm sunshine. Very soothing during work break time.
Author: Russ i dont know if i got a bad batch or what, but i ordered 7 samples from teaspot, and they all ranged from good to great.. till i opened this one..
it had a "fish food" like smell, after a 3min brew it was a black as coffee, after 3 sips i tossed it out, it tasted like FISH.. i had 3 others check it as well, all said the same thing. it was so bad i had to bleach my tea pot to get the stink out of it. :(
Author: Jong I've been searching online to find a good tea supplier and I'm so glad I found The Tea Spot. The Organic Puerh tea tasted really good even though it was the first time and thus I couldn't compare it to anything else. I've read some nice articles about Puerh Tea and wanted to experience it. I brewed and tasted once, and it had mushroomy smell and deep, complex, thick taste. It was quite an experience.
