Live Like Water Teas

Who's your Teaman 

Live Like Water Teas.

If you are searching for superior quality teas, Live Like Water, invites you to drink from the source. These select teas deliver a satisfying taste and create loyal, repeat customers, from the very first steep. That’s because I offer my tea family a 100% real, fresh, un-blended gourmet loose leaf teas; and the result is a fantastic tea drinking experience that quickly spreads to family and friends.

I select and buy teas seasonally and directly from reputable independent farmers. Afterwards, some of the teas are expertly baked a second time according to specific times and temperatures to bring out the full bodied flavor and character of the tea. This extra step also reduces the amount of moisture in the tea leaves, thus giving you more net weight value for your money.

Quality, price, and the best teas available, depend on my relationships with reputable and respected tea farmers, and that is why I am able to bring you some of the finest high mountain teas from estate tea farms. For the past ten years I have been specializing and selling some of the best Taiwanese, Chinese and Korean green and Oolong teas, and I hope to share my love, knowledge and selection with all tea drinkers. Here, you need not feel overwhelmed or intimidated. I sell the best sellers and the teas we can turn over each season. Just because companies advertise more than 160 different varieties of tea doesn’t mean they’re fresh or worth the inflated prices some tea shops charge for these low grade teas. With Live Like Water, no matter what tea you pick its always a winner. My tea standard is based on selling to my Asian clients from Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, and Korea.

Trust your tongue. I remember when I was selling my teas in Chinatown, Vancouver, how I was challenged by a woman from Taiwan who said:” I don’t trust a white face selling me tea from my country.” So steeped her some High Mountain Tea from Li Shan and made the sale on the spot. I knew that I had to have the best tea and the best price if I, a Polish Canadian, dressed in traditional Korean clothes was going to sell tea in Chinatown! So I invite you all to taste the difference and join our tea family. For us, tea is about relationships, and since our business is built on word of mouth, we make sure our teas are on the tips of your tongues. So Drink From the Source and Live Like Water.
