Welcome to the Tea of the Season page!
If you are new to Cup of Tea, welcome to our community centered tea house!

This page is dedicated to one tea, highlighting each new season. When you buy said tea, I will donate 15% of your purchase to a charity. This year I am looking to all of YOU to nominate a non-profit program of your choosing. At the end of the year, we will tally up the suggestions, and the program with the most nominations will receive a donation of 15% of the proceeds from Tea of the Season salesIn 2022, 60 pounds of tea was purchased in the name of Oregon Wild

Darjeeling is our spotlight tea for the winter season.

We purchase our Darjeeling from the Happy Valley Estate, just a stone’s throw from Darjeeling, India. The tea is grown at an altitude of 9,000 feet in a garden that is around 270 acres. Just as Champagne can only be given that distinction if it comes from the Champagne region of France, a Darjeeling tea can only be called that if it comes from Darjeeling.  It stands out amongst other black teas of the world, because it is less oxidized. This gives it a bright full-bodied taste with a muscatel flavor and a delicately flowery scent. You will also find this tea to have a less astringent flavor than other black teas.  

Give this wonderfully crafted tea a try. It is rumored to be Ozzy Osbourne favorite tea, and lest not forget Buzz Lightyear.



Cup of Tea is your community tea house.  If you are looking for loose-leaf tea and ways to steep it, we have everything you need. You can also enjoy a pot of hot tea, a glass of iced tea, or a custom tea latte in our shop or on the go.
