Not everybody is a tea-nerd, but tea people are very particular about their tea and tea ware. If you're looking to buy a gift for a tea person or an aspiring tea person, look no further!

The top of the page is for tea beginners, the middle is for tea lovers, and the bottom of the page is for tea aficionados who are ready to up their tea game.

Tea Beginner Set:

We suggest buying a bowl along with a larger leaf tea. If you or the person you’re buying for is just diving into the tea world, we recommend starting with bowl tea. This method involves large-leaf teas brewed directly in the bowl. It’s the simplest of all methods, and a wonderful place to start a tea practice. 

To brew leaves in a bowl, all you have to do is lightly cover the bottom of the bowl with the leaves, and then pour in the hot water--ideally just shy of a rolling boil. Living Teas can be steeped 5-8 times with this method. In order to get more steepings, you will need to use a teapot. This is because in bowl tea, the leaves are steeping the whole time they are in the bowl, and are therefore more quickly spent. 

We stock beautiful tea bowls:

Tea Aficionados Set:

We suggest a Zisha pot, two porcelain cups and your choice of teas. We use Zisha clay teapots exclusively when brewing tea in the Gongfu method. Gongfu can be translated as "skilled discipline," and this method of preparation lends itself to the craft and art of the "perfect cup of tea." 

Along with our purple clay Zisha pots, we use porcelain cups that soften the water and bring out the best qualities in the tea. Using the Zisha and porcelain cups that are characteristic of the Gongfu method elevates the practice of tea to an art form as we seek to brew the perfect cup of tea.
