The Great Tea Race Collection

Our Tea Buyer continually searches the world for premium teas that we are proud to offer to our customers. On occasion, we find teas that are so special that we have them shipped to us by the fastest method today – the airplane – so we can share them with our customers as soon as possible. This is very similar to the nineteenth century when tea merchants would ship their precious cargo by the swift tea clippers, ensuring the fastest arrival times. In honor of this great tradition, we offer this collection of the highest quality teas - The Great Tea Race Collection. This carefully curated collection is named in honor of the Great Tea Race of 1866, when five of the fastest tea clippers set sail from Foochow, China bound for London with their cargo holds filled with tea chests. Ninety-nine days and over 15,000 nautical miles later, the Taeping and the Ariel docked first in London, only twenty-eight minutes apart.
