The last trip that John, our Founder (my father) took, was to Italy with most of his family. A highlight was a trip to the charming island (isola) of Capri. The boat ride there was captivating and we all had a good time there. I decided to commemorate this trip by making a tea. While there I saw loads of lemon trees and also many fig trees. Since I grew up with Fig Newtons, I love figs. So I started with a black tea and combined the figs & lemons, with a bit of vanilla. It has been a bit of a cult tea, but people are coming to appreciate it.
This picture I took when circling the island. The stone arch is very famous.

While making tea can be achieved almost anywhere with simple ingredients, there are some niceties – some would say necessities – to brewing a perfect pot, a magnificent mug and a comforting cup. We offer an inspiring collection, from basics to advanced tea accessories to enhance your tea-making prowess.
Our goal with creating this tea glossary is to help demystify tea and the words used to describe it. We recommend bookmarking this page so you can refer to it when questions arise or print it off and place it on your fridge to learn as you steep. Either way, we hope you find this tea terminology guide to be a helpful resource on your tea journey.
While we love spending our summer days sipping iced tea on our front porch, there is nothing better than wrapping your body in a warm sweater and your hands around a mug of your favorite fall-flavored tea. We have the classics you love and have added a couple of newbies to our lineup this year we think you’ll enjoy.
