Is It Really In Stock? Yes It Is!

John Rice – General Manager

In recent years, and especially the last several months, I’ve been receiving the same question from new customers.  “Is what I want really in stock?  Will it ship now or some later time?”  It seems it’s becoming almost common to list items for sale that are not in stock.  Then …continue reading

New Teas, Lots of New Teas

John Rice, General Manager.

We’ve been shopping.  We’ve been searching.  We’ve been finding.  Finding new teas, that is.  I know it probably seems like I’m making a big deal out of nothing, but it’s not always easy to find teas that meet our standards.  I can (and have) received dozens of samples from some tea …continue reading

Drink Tea, Help Small Business, Save the World.

John Rice, General Manager

A good friend recently asked me a question about making iced tea, and it occurred to me that others may have the same question. She usually makes her iced tea with our Cinnamon Orange Spice tea, but the other day made it with Yorkshire Gold. She used the same method …continue reading

Catechin Content of Green Tea

by Lori Bricker, MS, RD

A customer recently asked me this question: “One of my primary intentions in drinking green tea is the healthy benefits of EGCG/catechins. To that end, have the various teas been tested and what green teas that you carry are highest in catechins?”

Here is my answer:

We have not had …continue reading
