In India, a chai masala, or tea mixture, is sold on every street in varying strengths by chaiwallas, or tea vendors. Truckers might ask for a "100 kilometer" or a "500 kilometer" chai.

It is served heavily sweetened with honey. It is also good in the summer, the spices make you glow and cool you off!

Experience a taste of the excitement engendered by America's merchant adventurers who built and owned the finest clipper ships in the world. The first real clipper ship was the “Ann McKim,” built for Isaac McKim in 1832. When the British ended the East India Company monopoly in the 1830s, the U.S. began a China trade with faster and more capacious ships, and competition between the two countries grew. Repeal of the British Navigation Laws in 1849 allowed American ships to load Asian tea for British markets. A typical voyage from Boston to Canton and back to England by way of the Cape of Good Hope took nine to ten months. American fortunes were made carrying furs from the Pacific Northwest to China, where they were traded for tea. A premium was paid in England for the earliest arriving ship with the season's new teas from China. The first American ship to reach the docks was the Oriental arriving from Hong Kong in only ninety-seven days, creating a sensation. The twenty-five years of the clipper ended when the Suez Canal provided a shorter route through the Mediterranean. It was a romantic era in America's maritime history and another chapter of tea's long and important story in the world economy. An "Historic re-creation" of the China tea carried during the golden years of the American Clipper Ship. Blended Black & Green China tea.

The Maryland colonists were indignant over British taxation. The odious Townshend Acts had placed a tax on tea, the colonist's preferred beverage. Although the tea act of 1773 had actually lowered the price of tea, it became the symbol of British intervention in their affairs. Outrage came with the Boston Port Act of March 1774, a punitive act by the British for the Boston Tea Party of December 1773. On May 13, 1774 the Brigantine Geddes arrived in Chestertown with a long awaited shipment of tea. That day, a committee met and resolved to condemn all who “willfully sold or consumed tea as inimical to the liberties of America.” On May 23rd, in a defiant act against the British, Chestertown citizens boarded the Geddes in broad daylight and dumped the tea into the Chester River.

Luca Della Robbia (1400-1482) was a Florentine sculptor who extended the application of fired enamels to terra cotta.

To symbolize the creation of Earl Grey Tea, we have created a heraldic device-a shield, containing the British Lion, The Chinese Dragon, with Bergamot Oranges, on an azure field. It is Charles, the second Earl Grey (1764-1845), to whom we have to thank for this delicious blend. Or, rather, the grateful beneficiaries of a noble act by a member of his envoy to China when he was Prime Minister of England (1830-1834). The legend is that a member of his mission saved the life of a Chinese official receiving them. As a token of his appreciation, Earl Grey was given a packet of tea, and the recipe. He later had it blended for him in England, and eventually the family allowed it to be made for public sale. Earl Grey tea is a blend of China black and Indian teas, is always flavored with oil of bergamot, a lemony flavor made from the peel of the Canton orange.

Our forefathers, in forsaking the pleasures of China tea for the principles of liberty, needed a “tea substitute.” New Jersey red root, sage, and raspberry leaves were among the plants touted as “equal or better than” tea. But none by themselves gave the same satisfaction and with spirit and resolve, the Colonial Dame looked to her larder, garden, and fields to create an acceptable substitute. She succeeded from Maryland to Massachusetts by using native plants and herbs at her disposal. In tribute, we again look up this challenging exercise in American ingenuity.

From the traditional tea ceremony, a simple ritual of preparing and serving tea – a tradition of altitudes was engendered first in China and later in Japan. In the daimyo, or samurai culture of Japan, warriors were also required to be poet-philosophers. Man was seen as a duality of opposite virtues, strength, and softness. The leaders shared their tea with respect for each person's dignity and point of view. It was time to focus on small beauties, like a flower, a poem, a hand-thrown pot in an environment to concentrate in a tranquil mood. We see this duality in ourselves and perhaps solutions can be found and differences resolved over a quiet cup. Poet-Warrior tea is blend of Sencha tea from Japan and Gunpowder tea from China in a ying and yang blend. It is nothing, if not civilized.

There are many blends of Russian Caravan tea, but we have kept ours true to its origins. Delicate China teas were transported over land for the use of the aristocracy. Tea was favored as early as the 17th century, but was steep in price, since Russia could not trade directly with China. So Russia established regular caravan routes, to transport tea from the producing reigons of northern China, via Mongolia. Horses and mules carried hundreds of pounds of tea over the mountians of Kalgon, northwest of Peking. Then as many as 300 camels crossed the Gobi Desert to Kayakhta, a neutral zone between the two countries. The round trip was 11,000 miles and took 16 months to traverse. On completion of the Trans Siberian Railway in 1905, delivery took only seven weeks, and the great caravans faded into history. A blend of China teas, true to its origins. Black tea. Contains caffeine. 20 Foil wrapped tea bags in our classic white ribbon bag.

In India, a chai masala, or tea mixture, is sold on every street in varying strengths by chaiwallas, or tea vendors. Truckers might ask for a "100 kilometer" or a "500 kilometer" chai. Chai is made with tea, spices, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove, black pepper, and milk. All are boiled together to make a potent, but cosseting concoction. The tea provides flavor, body and fragrance. The spices provide heat, warmth, and aroma. The milk tempers the somewhat ferocious Indian spices to a soothing brew. It is served heavily sweetened with honey. It is also good in the summer, the spices make you glow and cool you off! Our Tiger Chai has been called the best in the world.

White tea is made from immature tea leaves that are picked shortly before the buds have fully opened.

Our White Tea With Raspberry is the prefect cuppa to enjoy on a warm summer day. Contains Caffeine. 20 Count Tea Bags in Classic White Ribbon Bags.
