Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
Started in a small kitchen in southwestern Pa. The line of teas they carry are “Three Thousand Leaves” and they chose that name for the first recorded usage of a camellia sinuses plant for tea which dates back 3,000 years. The second reason is because it is said one tea plant will produce 3,000 leaves in it’s life time.
Their blog has not been updated since February of 2015, however if you click the menu link by the web address there is a lovely letter about fall and visiting Volant!
The website does not hold a lot of answers of who they are and why they have chosen tea, however once you step inside their store you will know that this is a place of tea lovers.
One thing very unique and cute is they have taken the index card cabinets from libraries and filled them with different teas
There were so many to chose from as well as a sample of the day and a lot of fun Tea Stuff. My review of their shop will be on the blog shortly but for now, let’s get on to the teas I purchased and tell you all about them.

Green Tea, Raspberry pieces, Flavoring.
COSTS: varies according to what you purchase.
Prior to brew: The leaves of this tea are dry and long, curled on the sides.
Brewed: Once brewed this tea has a mild yellow color.
Scent: This tea did have a veggie like scent
Flavor: Mellow tea with grassy undertones.
Very mild taste and a slight bitter. Not a strong on the green side or the raspberry. This is a great tea for a beginner into the green teas. The veggie is an undertone, present yet very mild.
Till next Tea….
