As tea geek, I could go on and on about the purity of the flavor found in Ineeka teas, and describe nuances in a vocabulary usually reserved for wine cellars. However, I am just going to tell you that it is good. Real good! Ineeka is the only tea company in North America that grows its own tea and they use a bio-dynamic growing system to do so (think fair trade and organic growing, but super sized).

This tea is swell not only for its flavor, environmental and social consciousness, but also for its design. It comes in brew Tashes, large open ended tea bags that hang on the rim of your cup and let you steep whole leaf tea on the go. The Tashes themselves come in airtight tea tins that keep the teas fresh while looking good and can be recycled or reused.
