This tea shop is wonderful! Several years ago a neice gave me some of their green tea as a gift. I had tried green tea before and did not like it. The Cultured Cup has specifice directions on the labels for the amount of tea to use and the correct water temperature. I tried the tea following their directions and was absolutely amazed. It was fabulous. I do not live in Texas, but I order from this shop all the time. Their mail order service is exceptional. I love visiting the shop because I always learn something special about tea!
