Because I complained that the family that makes my organic Tie Kwan Yin in the Wuyi Mountains of China was not rolling the tea leaves tightly enough, leading to a less than usually pungent brew, my supplier offered me free tea to help move that shipment along. Being the exploitative first world consumer that I am, I naturally accepted. They sent 100 grams of Tie Kwan Yin, along with 25 grams of Pumpkin Spice tea, and three little sample packages, including Gyokuro Yamashiro, fig and burdock, and chocolate chili chai. YUM. A Christmas party in a box! I buy fairly traded coffee, but I'm not sure we can say the same of my tea.
