The Gift of Tea


To the ancient Chinese, the gift of tea represents the foundation of relationships, since tea is grown in the fertile soil of home. Tea draws on the life-giving essence of mother earth and is reborn when infused in water.

Giving tea is planting the seed; sharing tea is nurturing the seedlings. Like fine aged teas, precious relationships continue to mature, unaffected by the passage of time and distance. Sharing tea nurtures relationships, clears the mind, and uplifts the spirit.

The spirit of giving transcends national and religious boundaries. And, whenever the opportunity of giving arises, there is no better time to share a cup.
