The popular phrase---“ke-lai-jin-Cha”—“well prepared Tea will be served upon the guests’ arrival” respects the role tea has played in friendships and social gatherings. Through the years Chinese people have made the making and serving of tea a form of art. Even the design of special clay pots and delicate painted tea cups added to the artful experience of drinking fine quality loose tea.
The wonder of Chinese tea culture is re-awakening now throughout the world. With each cup of our tea, EIGHTCRANES brings you five thousand years of authentic Chinese culture.
