Canton buy fresh tea each season, direct from small, traditional gardens where tea bushes have grown for hundreds of years.
Buying fresh tea, direct from the farm is an important point of difference for Canton as many tea companies buy from wholesalers with general region and vague season. They know the provenance of every leaf we sell and have established relationships with the farmers where the leaves are handpicked and handcrafted to tease out the sweetest notes and the most complex flavours. Most of the teas are beyond organic, some are biodynamic, several are from tea farms abandoned many years ago with trees allowed to grow untamed, others are from wild native trees in the forests of Yunnan.
