Pour 2 cups of water over 1 tsp. of SILK ROAD premium quality, organic loose tea. This may not seem like a lot of tea but SILK ROAD teas are incredibly fresh & flavourful, which means that you don’t need very much in order to produce a delicious cup of tea. Using any more tea leaves can result in a cup of tea that is too strong.

We are temporarily sold out of 40 cup tins online and for store pick up, due to a shortage of metal food tins, which is a result of a combination of the popularity of canned goods during the pandemic & a shortage of labour to produce metal & tins. You can still purchase 40 cup refills, or upgrade to a larger size tin.
While we have ordered more 40 cup tins, they are on back order at this time, and we do not have an expected arrival date. We will keep you updated here on the status of 40 cup tins. Thank you for your patience and support!
We’re now sold out of the 250 cup size tins, but you’re welcome to order refills for your 250 cup tins. We’re delighted to announce that our 300 cup tins are back in stock again!
Loose teas are sold in refillable tins to preserve freshness and nutrients. Exposure to light, heat and air causes flavour loss as well as the nutrient value of tea to decline, so be sure to store your teas in the tins they came in. Bring the tin back into our shops for refills and enjoy a discount. Please note that we sell our loose teas by volume, not weight.
