Most popular company tea(s)?

Does the company name have a meaning?: 

  • Cured Leaves Tea is directly aligned with our logo, the tree of life. The tree represents self, starting from a seed. Just like the tree, self goes through many transitions as it grows and evolve. Branches may fall off due to outward environmental changes. The roots may rot if not properly nurtured or grounded to earth. Sometimes self may get a little wild and needs trimming. Cured Leaves is a representation of self becoming whole and the Leaves are the fruits of our labor, our healing process that is shared with others.

Do you participate in any charities?  

What is your and/or your co-workers’ favorite tea?

What are your thoughts on transparency in the tea industry?

  • We are an ethical tea company with a social responsibility to ensure all teas are ethically sourced, organically grown, fair traded, that offers fair wages to their employees.

What role does tea play in our lives?

  • Tea is supportive and meditative. It helps us to be grounded, returns us to be center focused, and connects us to everything around us. Tea is a ritual and cultural.

Did you know that purple tea is the result of a genetic mutation in the Camellia Sinensis plant? This wonderful mutation is also called anthocyanin.

TeaTiff Picks: There are many good teas to choose. Red Bush Chai is wonderfully spicy but can be consumed at any time during the day. But it was ultimately East African Currant I choose for this pick for two reasons. One, I have been wanting to try a tea with the purple cultivar in it, tasting note can be read on Steepster, and, two, purple tea is not a type of tea but is a cultivar.
