Frequently Asked Questions
What Is TeaSwan ?
TeaSwan is an online teashop providing the highest quality premium teas to tea connoisseurs all around the world at competitive prices. Our understanding of the holistic properties of tea on your physiological and psychological well-being and eye for the quality of our products have helped us to grow into one of the most repeatable companies in the world of online tea wholesalers.
What selections of Tea are available?
TeaSwan’s connections with verdant tea farms across Darjeeling, Assam, North-Eastern India, Bihar, Kangra, Nepal and China allow us to boast a competitive level of flavorful tea, from premium teas to CTC (crush, tear and curl) tea. Our more traditional products include black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, herbal tea, and CTC. We also cater for people who have more exotic taste buds with our wide range of flavoured teas, which includes lemon green tea, tulsi green tea, and masala chai, amongst others.
Where is the tea sourced from?
The teas we supply come directly from our connections with tea farms across Darjeeling, Assam, North-Eastern India, Bihar, Kangra, and Nepal. This allows us to ensure the quality and freshness we pass down to our customers are not only consistent but of extremely high quality every time. If you have a query about a specific tea and where it’s sourced from, please contact us at email@example.com, where we can answer your questions and provide more detailed information.
Can I try a few samples before committing to a higher quantity order?
Yes. Here at TeaSwan, we have created a number of different sampler packs to provide you with an example of the other flavours within our tea collection that are perfect to buy if you aren’t sure whether you want to commit to a larger order. Please visit the following link to visit our sampler packs and find out more information here.
Do your teas contain caffeine?
TeaSwan like our products to remain as authentic as possible, so our black, green, oolong, and white teas all contain various levels of caffeine. As tea is a natural crop, it is difficult to determine exact caffeine levels, and we cannot therefore provide definitive figures.
Blending And Flavors
Can I add flavor to my tea?
Yes. TeaSwan are dedicated to helping you create your tea flavors just the way you want them. This is why we have a vast selection of rich flavorings for you to choose from, which you can then apply to most of our teas during the ordering process. We want to make sure you’re completely satisfied, though, so we haven’t stopped there. To make sure your tea is just the way you want it every time, you can also choose the strength of the flavor you choose when you order.
What flavors do you supply?
Our dedication to providing our customers with as much choice as possible means that our range of flavors increases all the time. Some of our current flavors include lemon, ginger, cardamom, rose, lavender, cinnamon and mint.
Can I add flavor to all types of tea?
No. You can add any flavor of your choosing to our black, green, white and oolong tea. At this point in time, we do not have the option to add your own flavor to the herbal teas we offer.
I want to add more than 1 flavor – I don’t see an option to do that in the product page?
When adding a product to your cart through the product pages, you can only add and specify the strength of a single flavor. If you would like to add multiple flavors to your tea, please try our “blend your own flavor” service. This allows you to create a blend that is unique and perfect for you.
What is your “blend your own flavor” service?
TeaSwan believes that tea should be personalized for every individual, allowing everyone to make choices about the ingredients that come together to create the perfect cup of tea. This is why we created our unique “Blend your own flavor” service, which allows you to create the perfect tea blend using flavors you love. This service also allows you to choose the strength of each flavor. Worried about forgetting the flavors you love? Don’t be. We’ll save your custom blend for future orders and will even share your unique blends with other customers! Why not try it now?
Can I blend CTC?
Yes! Simply use our “blend your own flavor” to create your perfect blend, where you can blend up to 5 different types of CTC teas, as well as adding your favorite flavors!
Do you use any artificial flavoring or synthetic substances in your teas?
No. Here at TeaSwan, we are dedicated towards providing you with high quality teas, and we would never add anything that had the potential to jeopardize this.
Ordering And Payment
Is it necessary to have an account to buy?
No. As long as you have a valid email that we can use to mail your order details, you are fine to proceed with your order using the guest account option. We do, however, recommend creating an account if you’d like to checkout faster the next time you order.
