The biggest enemies of tea are Air, Moisture, Light, and Heat. These elements cause degradation, which adversely affects the flavor of the tea. Loose tea can be stored for up to 1 years in an airtight container that does not allow light to penetrate through. It should be stored on shelves that are away from heat or severe cold temperatures. Tea should never be displayed in glass containers because the ultraviolet light will immediately begin to break down the tea, reducing the shelf life by half. The tea should never be left on counters for customers to open, smell and touch. This leads to contamination of the tea and is costly to the shop or restaurant owner.

 

RESTAURANTS

An interesting and beautiful presentation of loose leaf tea in your restaurant will promote product sales. For tableside display and a sophisticated tea service, we recommend using our simple and elegant Tea Presentation Chest.

 

With the wide range of looseleaf teas available today, the Tea Presentation Chest makes it possible for patrons to examine and select teas based on color, texture, and aroma. This offers them the opportunity to make an informed choice and makes their dining experience more pleasurable. The added bonus for restaurant owners is that tea sales usually double or even triple with the use of the Tea Presentation Chest. For an additional increase in sales, The Cozy Tea Cart teas are also available in The Cozy Tea Cart brand retail packages at a 35% discount. Retail package volumes range from 1-4 ounces depending on the tea.

 

Tea ceremony traditions have evolved over thousands of years, and this presentation process, along with our tea education program, indicates to your customers that you dignify these traditions and have taken the extra time to select the best teas for them. Ask us for more details about our Tea Presentation Chests.

 

RETAIL SHOPS

For tea, coffee, and retail tea shops, the lack of display space on counters is always a challenge. Our Tea Trays offer an attractive solution. These maple trays are stained with a beautiful mahogany finish and contain a row of eight sparkling, clear octagonal acrylic tea jars. The names of each tea are displayed on a plaque on the front of the tray. This uniquely designed tray will draw attention to your specialty teas and encourage your customers to try them.
