Simpson & Vail strives to bring you the freshest, tastiest teas from around the globe.
Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water. Tea can be served hot or iced at any time or for any occasion.
Black, Green, Oolong and White teas all come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. Differences among the four types of tea result from the various degrees of processing and the levels of oxidization. Black teas are oxidized the longest, while Oolong teas are oxidized for approximately half that time and Green and White teas are not oxidized at all. This oxidization results in natural chemical reactions that form distinguishing characteristics in aroma, taste and color. Green & White teas most closely resemble the look and chemical composition of the fresh tea leaf.
We take great pride in our flavored teas, which we also offer here. All teas are blended and flavored in-house in small batches. This ensures that you will receive only the freshest, most flavorful teas possible. We start with quality teas and then add high quality flavors and herbs, spices or flowers to enhance your tea drinking experience.
