Leaf Tea Bar

Happy New Year!
Hope all of you are in good spirits with plenty of fine teas on hand to enjoy with family and friends. This time of year, gives us the chance to reflect on what is truly important. The gift of family and friends - the importance of these special people in our lives both near and far.  It’s a time to remember what we have, rather than what we do NOT have.  We are grateful that we have enough to shelter and nourish our little family. We are grateful to you who share our passion for tea and company. We believe tea is a path to finding peace and tranquility in our lives.
Happy Earth Tea and Leaf Tea Bar also had a great holiday season, thanks to all of you. Our expectations were met and then some. We hope those who were gifted our teas, enjoyed them as they are always chosen with care.

LEAF gets a second location
For the new year, we have some big news to share today. We are set to open a second brick-and-mortar location in the Rochester, NY area! It will be in Eastview Mall, right in the space where Teavana used to be located. Initially, we will only offer retail from the location with plans to introduce tea service later. We are scheduled to open the doors by end of this month!
One immediate result of this move will be an expansion our line of tea and tea ware. You will see many more teas and tea ware being added in the coming weeks and months. By the way, thank you for the positive response to the addition of Pu-erh we launched last month. Our bar is constantly busy serving these complex and exciting teas.

Types of White Tea

Premium white tea is made primarily from the freshest shoots of yet unopened tea leaves and with minimal processing. Organic white tea can be described as the most pristine form of tea. Not much is done to the leaf - just withering in the sun, piling it up for a while for slight oxidation to set in and then gently baked. No rigorous rolling, pan-frying or shaping.
