I don't have a lot of possessions. I seem to prefer keeping just one type of any thing. I'm not the kind of person to have a handful of frying pans, instead, if I don't use it regularly, it gets donated.The middle draw in my kitchen, usually home to as many gadgets as you can fit, is slimmed right down - I have tongs, 1 serving spoon, vegetable peeler, knife sharpener, and a few other common tools. The garlic press is gone.. since I discovered how to press garlic using the flat edge of my chefs knife, it had no further use to me and that realestate is reclaimed.
That's the way I feel about my teapot. I could easily have a collection of tea pots, and that is something I may do, but I'd always gravitate to the favorite, so the collection would be just that, a collection, for the sake of collecting. So my teapot needs to be reliable and robust, happy to be loaded into the dishwasher, able to withstand my sometimes clumsy behaviour, and be pleasing to look at, all the while not claiming more space than it requires. Owing to its tall square design, it doesn't have any bulbous sides that infringes on space that it doesn't absolutely need. It has a lid and strainer made of stainless steel, so it will both look like new and perform like new for as long as I own it. the handle feels perfect, I don't feel like my hand is a second consideration to design or art. The tall profile has an added benefit in that the tea leaves are suspended from the brewed tea the moment you pour your first cup - I don't know if they thought of all these things in designing the Zero Japan, but I like to think they did, and they probably did!
It all makes sense when you read their philosophy as being;

We are a pretty lucky bunch here in Australia - great weather, great people, great quality tea, but we kind of luck out a little in the area of great customer service. I think its a little bit of the Australian culture of "it'll be right, mate" that has us lagging a little behind in the customer service and customer satisfaction areas of Australian businesses. I pride myself on fantastic and personal customer service - and I've been lucky enough to have operated many successful online businesses in Australia, servicing Australians, and I think that is important - I have other businesses providing Coffee and Chai). As customers, we are pretty relaxed too - however when it comes to ordering tea online, or anything really, we want to not have to follow up on the delivery status, we just want it to arrive confidently and without fuss.
Australia Post, for all the negativity it gets, is actually very good at covering delivery services to all parts of Australia - they are actually just as good when it comes to remote, regional and outback towns too. Its what I have built my businesses on, and I am proud to have partnered with Australia Post in that aspect.

Your tea will arrive at your business or home fast and fresh!

Did you know;
I have to be one of the luckiest people in Australia; every day I get to spend my working hours doing exactly what I love, maintaining good old fashioned customer service and discovering new tea's and coffees. This is an order of Golden Leaf Oolong Tea and English Breakfast, being sent to a customer in regional Victoria. The tea is packaged in a foil lined resealable zip lock bag, packaged lovingly into an outer carton and lodged with Australia Post for delivery to the door. Can it get any better?
Weekends are meant for relaxing with family & friends, but all too often is back-to-back running around with kid’s sports, Friday night social drinks, Saturday drive through lunch, Saturday night birthday parties or a night on the town followed up by a lazy Sunday brunch and then slothing around Sunday afternoon!
Unfortunately, all the fat, sugar, carbs & alcohol consumed over the weekend, often leaves us feeling flat on a Monday morning. Monday morning blues. The healthy solution to kick-start your Monday morning might be a Detox Tea. Sweet Root Detox Infusion Tea produces an intense aroma that is unique to anything you might have tasted before now. Using quality leaves of relaxing herbs and root to create an infusion that brings an intense aroma to the nose and uniquely beautiful sweetness at the back of the palate. This tea will help nourish the liver, an organ responsible for clearing toxins from your body. It will leave you feeling invigorated and ready to take on the week ahead leaving your less than desirable weekend habits behind.
So, you've just spent your early morning (or late night hours if you're like me) burning calories exercising at the Gym (or if like me, a brisk walk around the burbs!)? Go ahead, treat yourself to an Organic Whole Leaf Peppermint Tea infusion post workout refreshment. Whole Leaf Peppermint tea is a great muscle relaxing tea to enjoy after exercise and produced from high quality cut peppermint leaves with absolutely no additives or oils. The flavour from this Peppermint tea can be described as earthy with a sweet infusion and strong aromatics. There is no mistaking the valuable base element aromatic properties of methanol in Peppermint Tea!
Some of the health benefits we can experience drinking Peppermint Tea include improved digestion, reduced pain & inflammation, assists with bad breath, aids in weight loss, boosts the immune system & most importantly relaxes the mind, body & soul.
Yay! its Friday and the end of the working week for most. Does that change your preference for tea or coffee? Do you find by Friday you are adding an extra shot to your morning coffee run for that pick me up you need to get through the remainder of the day? While some of us definitely add an extra shot or switch from our usual latte to a flat white, the alternative is also worth considering.
Why not try switching to Tea? The perfect Organic Lemongrass and Ginger Tea. This tea is a stimulating herbal infusion with sweet citrus and bright lively flavours. Our classic lemongrass & ginger mix brews a deep citrus liquor with pleasant earthiness, honeysuckle and ginger notes.
