A Celebration of Tea
Author | groundwork coffee Date | January 03, 2020
With the new year often comes resolutions of self-care, caffeine cutbacks, and new eating and drinking habits. For these reasons, January is often dubbed National Hot Tea Month and we're joining in on the celebration. In addition to our namesake organic coffee products, Groundwork offers a diverse line of 26 organic teas. From floral tisanes to rare single-estate teas to fresh iced tea blends there is something for every palate.
Our teas are unique in that all varieties are offered as loose-leaf, rather than individual tea bags. This has numerous benefits including:
- Less waste. Loose-leaf means less packaging and less garbage. Concerned about keeping your tea fresh? Mason jars make a for a practical and statement making storage solution.
- Better quality tea leaves. Most of the leaves in traditional tea bags are actually dust and fannings from broken tea leaves, leaving a larger surface area for the essential oils that give tea flavor to escape in processing. Our teas are made of whole leaves and flowers, ensuring the flavor ends up in your cup.
- Customizable. Loose-leaf tea provides tea drinkers the ability to customize their cup. Control the strength of your tea or blend different varieties to make a unique and delicious combination that suits your tastes.
- Space to extract. Tea leaves need room to expand for full flavor. When prepared with an infuser, tea ball, or tea sac, there is space for the water to flow through the leaves and extract a wider variety of flavors, aromas, vitamins and minerals.
We have a number of tools to help you create the best tea drinking experience possible.
