A few hundred years ago, tea was such a precious commodity that the taxing of it caused an uprising that is still studied in history classes. During those same historical days, tea was transported by clipper ship. Before sailing, the ship's captain was usually presented with his own personal "stash" of some of the finest tea. He would carefully store the tea for personal use. Today, tea-lovers no longer have to obtain the rank of Captain in order to create their own stash of quality tea. Since 1972, Stash Tea has been selling high-quality loose leaf and bagged tea and tea products (e.g. teapots, mugs and tea chests). And Stash Tea offers more than the standard black and green tea. Visitors to their website can find teas to suit their mood (Dragon Phoenix Pearl Jasmine for the blissful and White Chocolate Mocha for the adventurous), select teas from specific regions throughout the world or choose to sample unique flavors like Chocolate Hazelnut or Yumberry Blackcurrant (a Yumberry, for the 99.9% of people who are assuming it's a made up word, is a real berry typically found in Asian countries). So put down that mug of coffee, and give tea a chance.
