Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do you have a retail store I can visit?
A. We are an online store. This allows us to keep our costs low, which means reasonably priced tea for our customers. It also means we deliver tea directly to your door!
Q. I don’t live in Vancouver. Is shipping across Canada (or to the U.S.) more expensive?
Q. How are your teas packaged?
A. Teas are packaged by weight (50g), not by volume, so package size and fullness varies by tea type. Keep the bag sealed and store your teas in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain freshness and flavour.
Q. I want to buy tea, that out of stock?
A. If an item you want is out of stock, contact us; we can estimate restocking time.
Q. How long will your loose leaf tea last?
A. If tea is stored properly, it will last for at least two years. But, we think you will be sipping it up much quicker than that!
Q. How many cups of tea can be made from your 50 gram bag of tea? 175 metal tin? 250 gram bag?
The number of cups of tea will vary slightly by tea, depending on how strong you like your tea and how much tea is required per cup. Generally speaking, 50 grams of tea will make approximately 20-25 cups of tea. 175 grams of tea will make approximately 70-90 cups of tea, and 250 grams will make 100-125 cups of tea.
