Customer Reviews




About Casstea.co

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.
