Tea spot is a company that I found through the Internet and when I saw that it was woman owned and proceeds go towards charities I was thrilled to be able to sample a couple of their teas and tell you about them. Their unique company along with their products of tea and tea brewing, ceremonial and drinking make this company well rounded.
