Beyond the Teapot: Camellia sinensis, or tea, needs at least 50 inches of water a year (Northern Virginia averages 38 inches a year). In places like India, it can receive as much as 98 inches of rain a year before it starts to be too much water for the plant. It cannot sit in the water, so well-drained soil is a must, which is why you will often find those tea farms on the sides of mountains. However, too much rain causes the leaves to grow rapidly, in which case they lose their distinctive flavor.

Beyond the Teapot: Have you ever wondered when iced tea really started to become popular in America? Actually, prohibition helped! When America went dryโ€”legally, at leastโ€”in the 1920s, iced tea found new advocates in bars and clubs, which needed to quench the thirst of patrons without breaking the law.

Beyond the Teapot: "Chai" is actually the Hindi word for tea! In the West, chai refers specifically to spiced Indian-style tea - that is, tea with traditional Indian spices and milk. The spices used in chai have all sorts of health benefits. Ginger, for example, helps settle a sour stomach, has anti-inflammatory properties, and is known to be high in antioxidants. Cardamom, another cornerstone of chai, works as a diuretic, detoxifier, and can even lower blood pressure.

Happy Holidays to the Johnson family from Augie and Karen Techeira!
I have opened today the sealed until now 1lb (supposedly) bag from order HPEEXRITW from 2 years ago. It seemed odd that almost all of the tea from it went into an 8oz-capacity tin. So I moved the tea into the bag and weighed. It is just under 12oz with the plastic bag. I understand it may get heavier is absorbs humidity, but lighter by 25%?? I do not like the only explanation which comes to mind.
Hi Hartley! Augie and I send best regards to you, your Dad and family.
Looks like Wendell switched carriers to USPS now tea hasnโ€™t gotten here for more than a week and weโ€™re only 2 hours away by car!! Not good service not any apple logo or explanation from Wendell
Once you fall for Hu-Kwa, you drink a pound of it yourself in 2 and a half months like I have =) You should make Hu-Kwa t-shirts, I'd buy one!
Free brochure! #1 tea company!
Does anyone serve or sell your tea in boston since the Green T in longwood had to shut down?
I'm a big fan of your tea. Thank you!
I hope your Hu Kwa arrives soon. On this cold grey July day my supply looks awfully short!
Today I am a very happy tea drinker. Born and raised in England, I have lived in California since 1961. Clearing my kitchen cabinets today I am finding loose tea that's been there since 1970 or even earlier. With trepidation I just brewed myself a cup from a tin of Mark T Wendell English Breakfast tea. Just want to say it's wonderful. Didn't know tea would last for decades. The can wasn't even sealed so I must have opened it years ago, a lot of years ago since I've been using tea bags pretty exclusively for at least 30 years.
