While in Bhutan’s capital city Thimphu last year, Williamson visited Jungshi Handmade Paper Factory where a small team is carrying on the traditional paper making methods from many generations ago. The paper is made with the bark of the local daphne bush and Williamson visited the factory to see the sorting, crushing, pulping, layering, pressing, and drying all being performed by hand in this small, simple factory. The labor-intensive process handed down through the generations can be compared to the commitment our tea farmers have to the beautiful art and science of tea production around the world. The handmade paper products include lovely notebooks and note cards with envelopes and we are so excited to offer these special items for sale to support the wonderful people working in this small factory in Bhutan.

Earlier this year, we began selling bags of our sustainably sourced line of 41 loose leaf teas. We have expanded to include the addition of brew-at-home tea pots, steeping mugs, and accessories to keep you equipped for making that perfect cup of tea all winter long. We have also updated the packaging with 100% compostable and resealable bags that keep your tea fresh and support our commitment to sustainability.
