From estate to cup.
Tea is a highly specialized agricultural product. As such, buying and selling luxury grade teas is an art form. To preserve optimal quality, we only buy peak seasonal tea and vac-pack them for enduring freshness.
The first step to ensuring sustained luxury quality, is to buy tea only when it is at its seasonal peak.
- Most global tea regions have only a 3-7 week window when quality peaks

Metropolitan Advanced Atmospheric Vac-Pac® (MAAV-P®)
Tea declines in quality through exposure to O2. Our in-house packing process – MAAV-P® - vacuum-seals our teas in an O2-free, nitrogen environment. Depending on the style and variety of tea, this process offers an extremely long shelf-life:
- Flavored teas and herbals: 10-year shelf life
- Unflavored teas / herbals: 20-year shelf life
