Our Etsy Shop is Up!

We are offering super-premium artisanal fair trade teas from Taiwan. Taiwan is one of the few places that keep intact the ancient traditions of hand-made Oolong teas, and we work with 3rd and 4th generation farmers growing organic teas – hand-picked and traditionally processed. These teas are competition-grade, which means deep body, complex aromas, and subtle finish, much like fine unblended wine or single-malt scotch.

Please visit our Etsy Shop to check out our Starting Five, the five best selling teas we carry.

Mention your Steepsterishness to earn yourself an introductory discount on a 75 gram purchase of any Mantra Tea.

Thanks for pointing out your site. I’ve just been reading about Taiwanese oolongs and am tempted to try one. All the best, Jim

Merci Jim, we hope you get a chance to look us up :)

Nice Etsy shop! Just an idea- you might get more sales if you offer smaller quantities on Etsy. I personally don’t like to buy something that expensive without trying a sample first or purchasing a smaller quantity first. Good luck! :)

Hi Stephanie, point taken. We have a sampling set available on the Webstore, link below, and will soon post it to Etsy too.

Fascinating article about the bottled water industry. I didn’t know San Francisco municipal water came from Yosemite Valley and is so clean the EPA doesn’t require any filtering. Can you guess how much of that you could buy for $1.35?!

Ps our online shop is temp closed as we transition hosting services. In the meantime you can visit us on Etsy, and if there’s any tea in our cupboard you want to try, just mention that and we’ll make it available temporarily on Etsy.
Cheers :)

We have a new sample size on offer: 10 grams of Ruby Black. This tea already sells very well in China and Taiwan. But in America we feel it has not yet been tried.

Each month we will open a new bag and reseal into 10 gram vacuum-packed foil. We want to emphasize that these teas are not sitting in a big jar and drying out while we wait for an order!

Rather this is a FRESH pack of tea that we are opening to introduce Taiwan Single Estate Teas to the American market.

oh I love the Ruby Black! Everyone needs to try it. I wish I could buy more already, but I am so poor :( lol.

Wow sounds good!
