Black Friday Free Tea Infuser

Free with any $200+ Black Friday purchase while supplies last

The award-winning Piao i is the bestselling tea infuser in Taiwan. The top chamber allows the tea leaves to move and unfurl freely in the water. Many other infusers trap the leaves in a small chamber. The push-button release draining system means the leaves do not over-steep so they can be reinfused repeatedly. The Piao I allows you to get the maximum number of infusions from one serving of tea leaves. The Piao i teapot has a glass serving jug and a food-grade polycarbonate infusing chamber with a push-release button. The button raises a stainless steel ball allowing the infused tea to flow down into the serving jug.

- Outer container teapot made of glass
- Inner cup and lid made of BPA free polycarbonate
- Easy to use!
- Ideal for multiple infusions
- 500 ml
- Dishwasher safe

Orders of $75 or above quality for free shipping.
Orders of $100 or more for free shipping and a free 2 ounces tea.

Fall Teas and Black Friday Promotion

 

Our new BaoZhong leaves unfurled after a short steep.

We’re excited to announce the addition of two new teas to our collection, just in time for the chilly months!  Mountain Tea Company is always pushing toward increasingly sustainable and environmentally conscious gardens. This Fall we are proud to unveil a third USDA-certified organic tea to our collection, a USDA Organic JinXuan oolong!  Fans of JinXuan oolong--nicknamed NaiXiang or Milk Oolong in the East--will appreciate the round and creamy-smooth mouthfeel  A slight citrus taper in the taste will encourage another brew. and you’ll be happy to discover that this tea has incredible re-steeping potential on par with the highest quality teas.


Next, due to popular demand, we’ve also been developing BaoZhong style tea in our gardens.  After much hard work, we feel that we’ve reached a level of quality that will satisfy and delight our discerning customers.  BaoZhong is distinct from our other fine green oolong teas in that it is twisted, not rolled during the finishing touches of production.  The character is also attention-grabbing, with a distinct two-phase palate: an initial two or three seconds of punchy and bold Gardenia and Hibiscus followed by soft apricot, melon and Asian pear flavors.  Our BaoZhong contains absolutely no other flavoring; the highest quality teas require nothing added, afterall.

Order $200 or more and receive this free $30 tea infuser!

Try both our new oolong along with a bevy of your time-tested favorites, and get a head start on your holiday shopping! For a Thanksgiving promotion, Mountain Tea will include a highly recommended teapot & infuser combination (valued at $30) with orders of $200 or greater!   As always, orders of $75 or above quality for free shipping, and orders of $100 or more include a free 2oz gift of tea.  Collect all three promotions at once, available for one week only starting on 11/27 and ending on 12/3.  Supplies are limited, we hope you have a wonderful Fall!

Press Release: Family Owned Tea Garden Rethinks Tea Business Model

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 1, 2012) – Today, Mountain Tea launched as a new tea retailer, introducing its line of high mountain oolong tea.  As a pure ecommerce brand and retailer, Mountain Tea delivers premium tea directly to customers without the markup of retail prices.

The company is founded by Chicco Chou who is inspired to provide high end teas at a reasonable price to the American market.


Investing in Quality

Mountain Tea is rethinking the tea industry, eliminating unnecessary costs associated with traditional retail and investing in the highest quality packaging in order to keep its products fresher, longer.

“Teas main enemies are light, air, and moisture.  Teas stored loosely in a metal tin or in a sealed bag are still in contact with air and are constantly degrading in quality.  All of our products are vacuum sealed to ensure freshness for a minimum of 2 years.  We’ve also switched from tea tins and invested in lightweight boxes to reduce our footprint during shipping.  We go to great lengths to maintain high standards for all our products while also working to be more sustainable and eco-friendly,” says Chicco.
