2 Perfect Teas for the Seasons

Each season, we caringly select artisanal treasures to enliven your tea-life and connect you to the particular elemental character of the season. Over time you'll gain familiarity with a wide variety of teas, including teas that you may have a hard time finding outside of Via Tiempo.

All of Via Tiempo's teas are from farmers that care for the long-term well being of the soil, tea-plants, and ecosystem. Most are completely pesticide free, whether they be certified organic, wild grown in forests, or old tree gardens at high elevation.

Books, Calendars, Scrolls—Writing to support the journey

A refreshing tea-letter, in the form of a scroll, introduces each tea in the most delightful way—sharing tea culture, philosophy, and the elemental poetry of the season. Each scroll opens portals of appreciation. Layer by layer, they reveal a wandering education in seasonal tea culture. Your first delivery is also accompanied by a lovely Easing into Seasonal Tea Ritual handbook, and the Book of Imprints, a Tea-Journal-Calendar that follows both a Taoist 8-element experiential calendar and the traditional 24 Season Farming Calendar of Northern China.

Artistic and Informative Labels

Our seasonal teas will always stay front and center in your tea cabinet, because the artistic labels are so much fun to see looking back at you whenever you open the door. The labels on the back of the pouch share how oxidized the tea is, taste and aroma profiles, steeping guidance, energetic qualities to look for, and more. Also, with your first shipment you'll receive a comprehensive guide to reading those labels.

By the way, the label and pouches are compostable! Drop them in your green bin and feel good about your entire tea experience. 

Bonus: Online Community Tea-Appreciation

As a bonus, two opportunities to connect online accompany each seasonal tea package: one tasting that explores the basics of tea-appreciation and one experimental gathering to explore your own seasonal tea ritual.
