Flowery Orange Pekoe (F.O.P.) is truly a testament to the artistry of tea-making. Its elongated leaves
and perfect blend of tips make it a tea of unparalleled craftsmanship. Each cup of this tea is
made by harvesting the first two leaves and the budding tip of the tea shoot during slow growth
periods. The combination of these leaves creates delicate flavor buds, known as "tips," which
give Flowery Orange Pekoe its distinctive character.

The captivating feature of this tea lies in the enchanting golden color that
the young buds emit when they are carefully plucked during their slow growth stages.
This golden touch, which earns the tea its "Flowery" title, adds another layer of elegance
to the overall experience. So, when you indulge in a cup of Flowery Orange Pekoe (F.O.P.),
you can expect a refined and enchanting tea experience. And of course, it's worth mentioning
that this delightful tea contains caffeine.

California Prop 65 

A dance of spices, a fragrant affair,
Chai whispers stories in the evening air.
A symphony of flavors, a cup's delight,
Chai, a poem brewed in the soft twilight.

 Curios about Chai Tea, but never tried it? 

Chai tea, often simply referred to as "chai," is a traditional Indian beverage that has gained popularity worldwide. The term "chai" itself is the Hindi word for tea. Chai is a spiced tea made by brewing black tea leaves with a combination of aromatic spices and herbs. 

The typical ingredients in chai tea include black tea leaves, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and black peppercorns. The blend of these spices imparts a rich and flavorful profile to the tea, creating a warm, aromatic, and slightly spicy beverage. 

Chai tea can be prepared in various ways, but a common method involves simmering the tea leaves and spices in water, then adding milk and sweetener to taste. The result is a comforting and fragrant drink that is often associated with relaxation and social gatherings. 

Chai tea has become popular in many cultures, and variations of the traditional recipe can be found, incorporating different spices and preparation methods to suit individual preferences.

How to Brew a Flawless Cup of Tea
Have you been brewing tea for years but can't seem to find just the right way to brew? Or maybe you are new to teas and infusions and want some guidance. Either way, you've come to the right place! Try our easy, fool-proof method on how to brew a flawless cup of tea!

Step 1: Get your tea and cold water prepared.
Your tea might already come in teabags. If you have bulk herbs or loose leaf tea (like in the second picture), you will need a tea ball strainer or reusable tea bag to put the leaves into for straining. The amount of water should reflect how much tea you want to drink, plus a little extra. If you make too much, you can always store the rest in the fridge for some iced tea later.

Step 1: Get your tea and cold water prepared.

Step 2: Preheat your teapot.
Boil enough water to fill your teapot one and one half times. Pour the hot water into the teapot and swish it around in order to heat the teapot up. Once the teapot is pre-heated, pour out the used water. Many people do not do this, but without doing this step, your tea becomes lukewarm quickly. This will keep your tea hotter for much longer.

Step 2: Preheat your teapot.

Step 3: Measure out your tea.
Measure one teaspoon (1 tsp.) of loose tea for every cup you plan to pour, plus one for the pot. Trust me on this... it will make a difference! To brew a stronger tea, add a few extra teaspoons.


Step 3: Measure out your tea.Step 4: Boil the water.
For black teas, bring the water to a full boil. Remove the tea kettle from the heat as soon as the water begins to boil. Boiling all the oxygen out of the water will flatten the tea's flavor. For more delicate green teas, remove the tea kettle from the heat before the water begins boiling, at 165-170 degrees F (74-77 degrees C). You can also add one part cold water to four parts boiling water to cool it to the ideal temperature range.

Step 4: Boil the water.

Step 5: Pour a small amount of hot water on the tea leaves.
Before steeping, pour a small amount of the hot water over the tea leaves to allow them to bloom (open up) and release some of their bitter tannins. Drain immediately.

Step 6: Fill the teapot with boiling water.
With your tea already in your teapot, fill the teapot with the boiling water. Keep the spout of the kettle close to the teapot while you pour so the water does not cool as you pour it in. Cover the teapot and leave the tea to brew. See our tea brewing times chart below for the best times for your type of tea.

Step 6: Fill the teapot with boiling water.

Step 7: Pour yourself a cup of tea.
When the tea is done steeping, pour yourself a cup. Avoid keeping the leaves in contact with the hot water as over-brewed tea will become bitter and unpleasant.

Step 7: Pour yourself a cup of tea.
