How do I use tea sticks?
Pour hot water in a cup, introduce your tea stick, add sugar or milk if you like, use stick as a spoon, infuse 5 minutes and enjoy the great flavour.
Where do you source your ingredients?
We source our tea directly from growers in different parts of the world including China, India and Sri Lanka meeting the highest quality standards.
Why do you pack tea in a stick and not in a bag?
Our stick is a convenient and easy way to make an 8 ounce cup of tea. It has an aerodynamic-perforated shape which ensures that the tea infuses evenly throughout the entire cup for a better taste. Teabags, on the other hand, tend to disperse the infusion mainly to the bottom of the drinking cup, leading to an uneven flavor distribution.
How many sticks are in a box?
There are 10 items per box of tea sticks.
