Tea was discovered in ancient China when a leaf blew in the window and landed in the emperor's bath, which he was slurping through a straw. Sip leaves steeped more decorously with today's deal. For $7, you get $14 worth of tea and accessories at Wisdom Tea Shop, located in East Village.
Family owned for two years, Wisdom Teashop is committed to enriching the global tea community by providing Fair Trade and Ethical Tea Partnerships loose-leaf teas and products whenever possible. Savour the soothing taste of Japanese matcha ($6 for 50g), a rich, frothy green tea often used to make green tea ice cream, lattes, milkshakes, and bubble-bath beards. Or shake up your morning coffee routine with a steamy cup of Canadian breakfast tea ($4.95 for 50g), a specialty black tea blend whispering floral, oaky sweet nothings. Shoppers looking for gifts or a little something special to accompany their own tea-totalling will appreciate the selection of accessories and wares at Wisdom Teashop. Do your part to save the earth, one leaf at a time, by storing your lovely leaves in a round tea caddy ($2.75 for 50g container), a sleek, reusable tin good for long-term, air-tight storage. Once exposed to the freedom of the air, let leaves soak directly into your cup or pot with a stainless steel infuser ($5.95), or tea ball infuser ($3.75 for a 2" infuser).
