This San Francisco-based line of teas is the creation of Jesse Jacobs, a former corporate leader at an Internet company. Instead of getting overly caught up in a daily fast-paced routine, Jesse decided he needed to slow down. Tea was his answer: By simply waiting for the tea leaves to unfurl and steep in water, he felt himself becoming more patient and thoughtful.

In keeping with this philosophy, Jesse sources his teas directly from hardworking tea farmers around the world and uses only organic and natural ingredients.

For the Starter Kit, he selected three teas:

Spearmint Sage: This caffeine-free herbal blend combines the refreshing quality of spearmint, balanced and grounded by the warm and fragrant flavor of sage.

Matcha Latte Green Tea: Matcha is made by carefully and slowly grinding steamed and dried green tea leaves. The powder can then be used for cooking and baking. This particular matcha is sourced from Japan, with the addition of cane sugar - making it ready to whisk into steamed milk or hot water for a sweet, smooth, rich and grassy matcha latte.

Earl Grey: Earl Grey tea dates back to 1792, when Charles II Lord Earl Grey blended bergamot orange with black tea. This formula adheres to that tradition and blends wild organic black tea with real bergamot orange oil. The result is a bright and citrusy brew.

Use & Care

Spearmint Sage: Add 1 tablespoon of tea to 12 ounces of boiled water. Steep for five minutes. Pour and serve. 

Matcha Latte Green Tea: For a cold latte, whisk 2 tablespoons of Matcha Latte mix into 8 ounces of milk, then add ice. To create a hot beverage, bring 8 ounces of milk to a simmer and whisk in 2 tablespoons of Matcha Latte mix.

Earl Grey: Add two tablespoons of tea to 12 ounces of water. Steep for two minutes, then pour and serve.
