As tea lovers, we believe a delicious cup of tea should start with fresh, pure water. For the 844 million people worldwide who do not have access to a clean water source, it’s not as easy as turning on the tap. That’s why we’ve partnered with WaterAid for the last six years in March to support their mission of bringing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to everyone, everywhere.
For every box of tea you purchase on our website in March, we’ll donate 20¢ to WaterAid.

Lapsang Souchong is a distinctive Chinese black tea known for its smoky and assertive character, reminiscent of a campfire on a brisk evening. It is said that the discovery of smoked black tea, nicknamed Russian Caravan, comes from the caravans carrying black tea on trade routes from China to Russia in the 1600s.
