Powers of Tea

Sometimes a steaming cup of tea is more than a beverage, it's a full healing experience. Tea is not a casual drink; like a fine wine, tea requires the careful choice of the best leaves, the patience to wait for water to come to the right temperature, the knowledge of how long to steep, and the time to let the wisps of steam warm your face as you savor every sip. In places from Buddhist monasteries to English parlors, tea has also long been recognized for its healing properties. Tea is credited for helping with upset stomachs, an afternoon pick-me-up, a great dessert compliment, or a relaxing bedtime beverage. Whatever you are seeking, there is a tea for you.

9 Lives Tea House is dedicated to bringing you only the best of the many tea varieties available. All of our teas are tasted in-house before listing. Like a fine wine requires the best grapes, the best teas require only the best tea leaves. Flavor can be altered by many factors such as the harvest, the season, the country of origin, the weather, and the handling/processing procedures; these variables can all effect the final product. Blending tea has become an art to those involved in the craft. Once you have tried a Custom Blend or a new Loose Leaf Varietal, you will never go back to the store or bulk produced teas. We go far and wide to bring our customers only the best in Tea Selections. Are you ready for a new adventure? Then...
