Pure Leaf Teas - have caffeine
White, Green, Yellow, Oolong, Black, and Dark (Pu-er) can all 6 types really come from the same plant? Yes! That's what makes our pure leaf tea for sale so exciting. The general steps of withering, oxidation, rolling, firing, drying and sorting are common steps in processing the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant into specialty tea for sale. However it's the specifics of each processing method, some secretive and passed only from family to family, estate to estate, garden to garden, that yield each different tea type. Combine the seasonality of the harvest times throughout the growing year and the pluck (which leaves are carefully picked) to get a myriad of teas with beautiful leaf shapes and colors, and amazing aromas and flavors. Add some fanciful and sometimes hard to pronounce names and welcome to the world of pure leaf tea.
Herbal Teas – no caffeine
Herbal teas are very different from pure leaf teas. Herbs are not tea leaves and therefore are not technically tea. Herbal brews are called tisanes.

We employ careful study of traditional, medicinal, and ritual uses of herbs to combine them in interesting ways for the desired flavor and effect. The end result is a wide variety of herbal tea to savor and enjoy.
