    Spring Teas 2021 Are Rolling In!

    The first of our spring teas of 2021 have arrived! Two delightful green teas from China that were manufactured before the Qingming festival, which means they are the very first of this year's crop.  These sublime teas are Anji Bai Cha and Long Jing. They were very popular last year and sold out so we're thrilled to have them back in stock.

    Tea news to distract you from the News

    Jun Chiyabari Nepal on COVID-19 and First Flush 2020

    Last week we received an email from Bachan Gyawali, the owner of the farm, updating us about the current status at Jun Chiyabari. We were happy to hear some positive news and we thought of sharing it with you here. I will extensively quote Gyawali because it gives you a sense for what it is like on the other side of the planet - almost the same as it were here. The challenges and the triumphs (there are few but they are there) in a world that has never felt this small before.

    Second Flush 2017 Plans

    We have heard the ominous words from Darjeeling – there is going to be no second flush (summer harvest) this year. We were hoping hard that somehow the political troubles that have engulfed Darjeeling since early June would ease off and second flush production would resume.

    Amidst the political whirlwind of 2016, we took a significant step in our business with the opening of Leaf Tea Bar in a charming Rochester, NY neighborhood.

    January 4, 2016

    Here's to 2016!

    2015 had some harsh notes in its finish. The shadow of terrorism and related conflicts, and climate change cast its long shadow across the world. Right here in Rochester, NY, a local was arrested hours before he could launch an alleged ISIS-inspired attack in a downtown pub on new year's eve. The city's fireworks were cancelled - like in many parts of the world - in the wake of the incident.
