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
1½ 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.
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.
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.
