Our curated tea tasting takes one hour. We are pleased to provide the tasting at your location for a calming experience, at a park in Princeton for the nature-minded, or at our underground tea house for a wider range of teas to select from.
Where we Source Our Tea
The best tea in the world comes from the high elevation remote mountains of China. These teas -- many of them tribute teas (traditionally only consumed by the emperor) -- are few and far between.
Rarely if ever exported out China, and produced in very limited yearly batches, they contain unbelievable flavors and textures that simply can not be found on the American tea market.
We've taken on the burden of traveling yearly to these terroir mountains to source directly from the farmers and bring back limited quantities to share with you here in Princeton NJ.
Our teas are as distant from what you'll find at your typical tea shop as grape juice is from French Bordeaux. Come pull up a seat and savor the unmistakable aromas our select tea has to offer.
Meet Your Tea Guide
After years of living in China, apprenticing under a tea master, and sourcing the best tea on earth - I can't wait to tell you what I've learned.
By the end of your personalized tasting flight, you'll know how to brew your own tea in the traditional gong-fu (with skill) style, have a more holistic understanding of Chinese tea traditions, and experience the many varied tea types first hand.
The Perfect Tea Gift
Share the vibrant history, taste, and culture of tea with your loved ones. Our Tea Tasting Session can be purchased as a digital gift card.
About Cass Tea
We know that the world's most delicious, aromatic and prized tea comes from most remote authentic Terrior regions reaches of China. We also know that Chinese tea is confusing to English speakers, hard to source, and worst of all is often faked for profit.
Unlike French Wine Terroir regions which have strict Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) governmental requirements, China's Terroir region has no such certifications. Tea suppliers know - and often exploit this - by selling inferior teas which cost pennies in place of rare varietals that fetch hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Ouch.
What Makes Our Tea Special
When we need tea, we go to China and get it. Any tea we order is directly from farmers and producers we have a pre-existing relationship with... so we know it's the real-deal. When you brew from Cass Tea, you are getting the freshest leaf available, directly from legendary Chinese Terroir-specific tea gardens.
We only sell our teas online and direct to you. There's no huge mark ups to cover a physical location, or fancy packaging. Unlike the few other US terroir specific suppliers, we offer no minimum purchases and offer 1g samples so you can try the astounding breadth of authentic tea without investing in bulk buys. We are strongly passionate about real tea, and are overjoyed to share our brew with you.
