2016 Holiday Gift Guide
Gift giving is one of the oldest of human activities. It pre-dates even the oldest civilizations, possibly dating as far back as the cavemen. In today's world it is a practice that unites all cultures. We give gifts to celebrate holidays, birthdays and anniversaries; to express love and affection, honor and respect; to wish people well and to express thanks. The gifting of tea and "tea art" is documented as far back as the year 760 in Lu Yu's Ch'a Ching (The Classic of Tea.) In our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide we have put together some of our favorite teas and tea things that even Lu Yu would be proud to give. Do you have a cherished tea person in your life? Look no further!
