Full of subtlety, the world of teas is similar in some respects to that of wine. Each estate produces teas with a unique flavor based on specific conditions such as soil, elevation, and temperature. Black, Green, Oolong, & White teas are all produced from the same leaf of the Camellia Sinensis plant. It is through special processing and fermentation that the different varieties of tea are created. Tea classification depends on its origin, season of picking, and the size or shape of the leaf.
As The First Sip, we continually seek the finest teas from around the world when building our collection. For every tea selected to be carried in our store, dozens of the same variety are tasted, graded, and then omitted. We continuously sample, smell, test, and brew hundreds of teas, maintaining a consistently exquisite and high quality catalog. Our flavored teas contain real fruit and use 100% all natural flavors.
