Who and Whats is Basket Leaf?
Basket Leaf is an online tea shop providing the highest quality premium teas to tea connoisseurs all around the world at competitive prices. Our understanding of the holistic properties of tea on your physiological and psychological well-being, and our eye for the quality of our products, have helped us to grow into one of the most repeatable companies in the world of online tea wholesalers.
What selections of Tea are available?
Basket Leaf’s connections with verdant tea farms across Darjeeling, Assam, North-Eastern India, Bihar, Kangra, Nepal and China allow us to boast a competitive level of flavorful tea, from premium teas to CTC (crush, tear and curl) tea. Our more traditional products include black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, herbal tea, and CTC. We also cater for people who have more exotic taste buds with our wide range of flavored teas, which includes lemon green tea, tulsi green tea, masala chai amongst others.
Where is tea sourced from?
The teas we supply come directly from the connections we have with tea farms across Darjeeling, Assam, North-Eastern India, Bihar, Kangra, and Nepal. This allows us to ensure the quality and freshness we pass down to our customers is not only consistent but of extremely high quality every time. If you have a query about a specific tea and where it’s sourced from, please get in touch with us firstname.lastname@example.org, where we can answer your questions and provide you with more detailed information.
Can I try a few samples before committing to a higher quantity order?
Yes. Here at Basket Leaf, we have created a number of different sampler packs to provide you with an example of the different flavors within our tea collection that are perfect to buy if you aren’t sure whether you want to commit to a larger order. Please visit the following link to visit our sampler packs and find out more information here.
Do your teas contain caffeine?
Basket Leaf like our products to remain as authentic as possible, so our black, green, oolong, and white teas all contain various levels of caffeine. As tea is a natural crop, it is difficult to determine exact caffeine levels but we have sorted to the closest possible caffeine pallet.
Do you sell decaffeinated tea?
No. Unfortunately, the decaffeination process involves a lot of chemicals that can affect the flavor and quality of the tea, something we here at Basket Leaf pride ourselves on providing our customers with. Therefore, we have chosen not to provide decaffeinated tea on our website. But we do have some natural teas which have no caffeine.Check them here.
How do you ensure the quality and freshness of the tea?
By sourcing our tea directly from our contacts in countries we have previously mentioned, we can cut out the middleman and demand the quality our customers love from our suppliers. This also reduces the delivery turnaround time, increasing the level of freshness we can provide our clients. We also have high standards when it comes to the packaging of our products to make sure that any tea you receive always remains fresh and aromatic throughout the delivery process. If you are unhappy with your order or have any complaints about the packaging, please contact us email@example.com.
