Our tea trip begins on the East Coast up in Long Island, New York. Our Long Island Strawberry is a refreshing green tea that pays homage to the history of strawberry farming and wild foraging that dates back to the 1850's and even earlier according to archaeologists! Spend a day at the Strawberry Festival or go out and pick your own strawberries.

Before we leave New York, we've got to stop in Manhattan and take in the city skyline! In the heart of the Big Apple, Manhattan boasts the Empire State Building, iconic Times Square, and the theaters of Broadway. Our Manhattan Earl Grey is a smooth and impressive take on the classic with a twist of lemon for an unforgettable finish.

We've gone South and landed in Georgia! Since 1885, the Pearson family has been growing peaches and pecans on the same land. Our Georgia Peach rooibos blend captures some of that juicy, summer peach flavor.

We head West and now find ourselves in Louisiana! We're headed to Bourbon Street in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. While Mardi Gras celebrations are a huge draw, the party doesn't stop anytime of year. Find jazz and blues music in the air, great shopping, and delicious Cajun food. Our Bourbon Street Vanilla rooibos captures the magic of this district in a hypnotizing aroma.

We keep heading West till we end up in the home state of our business! For hundreds of years the indigenous people of this region have harvested and used Cota as a medicinal plant. We sell Navajo Wild Tea and Ephedra Tea gathered and put into hand-sewn tea bags by a local, indigenous business owner. We also highly recommend adding a bit of local honey - all of ours come from Hays Honey And Apple Farm located in Bosque Farms NM.

Our adventure continues as we head further West to California! The RMS Queen Mary is docked in Long Beach and is available for touring, overnight stays, and events. Our Queen Mary breakfast blend is lovingly named after the tea they would serve to passengers aboard the ship when it was sailing on the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967 for the Cunard-White Star Line.

We change our course and head North to Washington state. With two major stops in the city of Seattle. First is the historic Pike Place Market which opened on August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States. Our Market Spice is a blend of tea that was created and sold right in Pike Place Market!

As you wander around Seattle and check out attractions like the Space Needle or Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum sip on our Spicy Seattle Chai and take in the sights. This chai is our spiciest blend and pairs great with milk and demerara sugar.

Bonus! While Hawaii isn't accessible by car for a USA road trip, it is accessible by tea cup! Lili'uokalani was the only queen regnant and the last sovereign monarch of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Our commemorative tropical blend pays homage to her short reign but lasting historical impact. Check out the ‘Iolani Palace which is a National Historic Landmark and was the royal residence of the rulers of the Kingdom of Hawaii beginning with the Kamehameha Dynasty in 1845 and ending with Queen Liliʻuokalani in 1893.

How to Make Your TEA

How to Make Your TEA


Good tea starts with good water! We recommend using filtered or spring water for a superior tasting cup of tea. 


Different types of tea require different temperatures of water for steeping. Black teaherbals, and rooibos can handle boiling water. Green teawhite tea, and oolong require cooler water so the leaves don't get scalded - resulting in bitter flavor. Follow the temperatures below.

Black Tea: 212°F
Green Tea: 160-175°F
White Tea: 175°F
Herbal: 212°F
Rooibos: 212°F

Tea Leaves to Water Ratio

We recommend using 1tsp of leaves per 8oz of water. If you prefer a stronger cup of tea, add more tea leaves.

Steep Time

We recommend that most teas steep for 3-5 minutes. Anything that has actual tea leaves (camellia sinensis) should not exceed 5 minutes as the leaves will release more tannins resulting in a bitter flavor. Herbals and rooibos don't contain actual tea leaves and can be steeped as long as you like. 

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Bring freshly drawn water up to desired temperature according to the type of tea you're making.
  2. Scoop loose leaf tea into an infuser or T-Sac using 1tsp for each 8oz of water. (If your mug is 16oz use 2tsp. If your teapot is 45oz use 6tsp.)
  3. Place infuser or T-Sac into the mug or teapot you're going to steep the tea in and pour the hot water over the top of the leaves allowing them to swirl around and open. 
  4. Steep for 3-5 minutes according to your taste preferences.
  5. Remove infuser or T-Sac.
  6. Add milk or sugar to taste.
  7. Breathe in the aroma and enjoy!
