NO.84

NUMEROLOGY

We’ve given our Shanghai Chai the number 84, in reference to the famous Huxinting Teahouse in Shanghai, first built in 1784.

CHINA

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
