15th February, 2020
We've confirmed our order for the three new teas (Green, Yellow, and Pu Erh) and are just waiting on shipping details. We are also considering some roasted Rock Oolongs from a different supplier. Stay tuned.

7th February, 2020
We will find out more about our order for new teas next week. Hopefully they will be able to ship fairly quickly; the Honeyfairyland Yellow tea quickly became a favourite and its return is eagerly awaited!

1st February, 2020
We have sent an inquiry about an order for more of the Honeyfairyland Yellow tea that we had last year, along with a new Jade Snail Green tea and a Palace Grade Pu Erh. We'll keep you updated once we have confirmation...and of course an estimate for when they might arrive!

2nd January, 2020
Happy New Year! We're back from the holiday break and ready to ship orders. We still have some of our Christmas Blend and Christmas Rooibos available, and though the main tea ordering season doesn't begin until later in the spring, we'll certainly let you know if we decide to add anything new!

  • The Voyages of Admiral Grey

    $8.00 CAD
    Many of you will know Admiral Grey and the associated teas that Tea Trader supplies. The original tea was launched in 1995 and Eight Bells, Taeping and Cedarberg Sunrise followed. At that time, we put a story behind this character and this was carried further by one of our earliest customers, Bob Newell. We talked with him over the years about a more complete story built around this character. We are now happy to announce the further chronicling of his adventures as told by Bob himself! Join Admiral John Grey as he sails the seven seas on the trail of a mysterious and dangerous conspiracy that may well threaten the world order. Can the Admiral succeed in defeating his enemies and return safely home? And will his beloved Julianna still be waiting for him? www.admiralgrey.com
