How to brew loose-leaf tea?
icon of dropdown

Glad you asked, most of our customers never made loose-leaf tea before. In fact, that's why we created the Discover Box. On top of everything you need to make tea at home, we also have brewing instruction and recorded guided experience customized for each tea in the box. Don't worry, it's a lot easier than you might have imagined.

Why loose-leaf tea?
icon of dropdown

From a science standpoint, L-theanine is organically found in tea leaves, it has a natural soothing effect on the brain. From a history standpoint, loose-leaf tea has been used as a meditative-aid to help Buddhist monks stay calm for thousands of years. Traditionally in China and Japan, drinking a cup of tea was an opportunity for contemplation, meditation, and an elevation of mind and spirit. After all, we love loose-leaf teas for how they taste, the subtle, complex, and transient tastes of the leaves... 🍃

More about the teaware?
icon of dropdown

For the Discover Box, we picked the most beautiful and functional teaware we can find. It's made with the same techniques used to make modern Ru Ware, an exquisite teaware originated from the Song Dynasty at around 1100. Made by firing clay at 1400°C, the result is this gorgeous creamy blue and crackled looks. One of the unique characters of this teaware is that it will "age" with time, at the end of the day, each pot will look different and unique, just like the people who're using them. 🥳 (The pot has a capacity of 200ml, and an interior filter to make sure the leaves stay inside; each cup has a capacity of 50ml.)

How can I get more teas?
icon of dropdown

The Discover Box comes with three of the best and most representative teas from our collection. It's designed to introduce you to loose-leaf tea, and help you figure out what you like. We have all paid for subscriptions we didn't need, that's why we chose to offer a "refill discount" instead. So you can enjoy the same saving as you would from a subscription but without being tied to a plan. We will email you more details about how to claim your refill discount once you receive your Discover Box.

The tea set

Looking for something more than a pouch? How about a ceramic Teajar with airtight seal (so your great tea can stay great), plus a handmade bamboo Teaspoon (so you know just how much tea to use)? Unlike the pouch, the set was designed to last a lifetime.

A wartime tea

When Catherine of Braganza married King Charles ll, she carried Chinese tea as a part of her dowry. Being the new foreign Queen she was, she naturally became the focus of all attention, the talk of every household. People started dress like her, and adopted the habit of tea-drinking.
But unlike Portugal, Britain had no official trade relationship with China back then, and loose-leaf tea was one of China's most valuable exports, along with silk, and porcelains. That made tea extremely expensive, and scarce. The British saw a huge opportunity to dominate the source of tea production. So, In early 1820s, the British East India Companies began large scale production of tea in India.
Fast forward to WWII, China was desperately in need for military supplies to fight off the Japanese invasion. To raise the money they need to acquire artilleries and ammunitions, this tea was invented. It was created to compete with the Indian black tea, and tasked to win-back the taste of the West.
