about rare tea
Tea Forté Rare Teas are special edition, handcrafted teas that we are able to acquire only in limited quantities. Our small batch Rare Tea line affords us an opportunity to extend your tea journey. These teas showcase the delicate and subtle overtones that make fine tea as complex as fine wine. Unlike common teas that are grown on industrial plantations that mechanically harvest and process the tea, our rare teas are grown on small family farms. Each leaf and bud is hand-plucked, dried and fired by skilled artisans.

Our teas are being presented to you as they would be if you were walking along our cupping table, or tea tasting table. This shows a traditional cupping set, with the lidded, toothed cups used to steep the tea. The teeth and lid allow a pour into the tasting bowl while straining out the leaves.
