Come to expect "Tea with Moxie®" at Fava Tea!
What is Tea with Moxie® anyway? Simply put, it’s how we see things at Fava Tea. The old days of going to “high tea” in a stuffy room, wearing a fancy dress or suit, and formal gloves is no longer the defining image of tea and the modern American tea drinker (well at least at Fava Tea). We have put this aged image out to pasture, say cheerio, to the old way of thinking about tea. To do this, we focus on offering truly remarkable, memorable teas; with an even more memorable, fun experience without silliness or anxiousness; and help each guest find the teas that matches their unique tastes and personality. This isn’t your grandmother’s tea; no, this is Tea with Moxie®
A Brief History of Tea-Our Interpretation!
Around the world, the only beverage people drink more than tea is water. And yet the origins of this popular drink are somewhat sketchy. Some experts believe that ancient cave paintings depict cavemen drinking tea to relieve the stress of hunting, gathering, and not-being-eaten.
In 350 A.D., Chinese scholar Kou P’o wrote of a beverage “…made from the leaves by boiling…” or “…that the maid believes is spoiling…” depending on whose translation you trust.
Early in the 17th century, Dutch traders introduced the popular Asian drink to Europe by sharing the complimentary tea samples they swiped from upscale Chinese and Japanese hotels (along with tiny bottles of shampoo, hand lotion, and mouthwash). Tea found its way to America in the 1600’s. Our contributions to tea culture include iced tea and the tea-bag.
