Revealing Ancient Traditions of Luxury Tea in China
As the original land of tea, tea is deeply ingrained into the history of China. Because China’s best teas rarely leave the country, quality Chinese tea is too often overlooked simply because it’s unfamiliar. That’s why Tranquil Tuesdays’ tea collection is designed to facilitate discovering China’s teas in a simple, enriching, and inviting way.
China produces the full range of tea: white, green, yellow, oolong, black, and pu’er. Even though the Chinese tea industry is vast, it is still rooted in regionally specialized, small-scale practices. The majority of China’s teas come from small family-owned farms, where hand-picking and hand-processing pure teas has been the family business for generations.
Showcasing China’s Diverse and Unique Tea Production Heritage
Tranquil Tuesdays travels throughout rural China to personally source all of our teas from small family-owned farms. We work directly with the families who grow, pick, and handcraft our teas, and we visit often to be able to source in small, fresh batches.
Additionally, Tranquil Tuesdays is committed to the importance of provenance. Honoring the traditions of high quality tea craftsmanship, each of our teas comes from its region of historical growing origin linked to its distinctive flavor, or terroir. We are committing to showcasing unblended and unscented teas, allowing you the chance to discover the rich and exciting taste of a tea’s natural harvest.
