Our approach to tea
From bush to cup:All our teas come from farms that we know. We never work with wholesale or other third parties – we buy only from farmers. Sometimes we do work with cooperatives of farmers. We want you to know where your tea is from, so next time when you are in China or Taiwan you could say hi and have a cup of tea with the farmer. That is why our product is from “bush” – from the place where the tea is grown, where the tea master applies his or her craft to your experience at home, brewing the tea – in your cup. Learn more about tea farming in this article.
Real tea, real stories: We love tea and we want to give you a chance to taste some of the best teas. No need for overly fake descriptions of the types of flowers. Every tea we sell, we love because of its taste and origin. It’s quality. We give you some hints to make the right selection with tasting notes and descriptors. But what the tea means to you, you can find out by yourself (or together with your friends.) We would be glad if you can share your tasting notes back to everyone with a small review.
Our planet in mind: Sustainability is a strong word. We know there are a lot of false claims out there, so we have to be honest – the tea you drink comes from the other side of the world. It will never be carbon-neutral. But that said – we try to reduce and reuse as much as possible. Xian Tea only works with farmers that farm as sustainable as possible: no fertilizer, no pesticides. We are currently working hard to make our packaging more sustainable. 1% of all our revenue goes to climate projects with the help of Stripe climate
