Seattle, WA– American fans of UK-based Canton Tea Co ‘s range of premium teas no longer have to wait for their orders to cross the Atlantic. Phoenix Tea Shop now ships select Canton Tea Co teas directly from its warehouse in Seattle to tea lovers based in the United States and Canada.

Phoenix Tea Shop owner and respected tea blogger Virginia “Cinnabar” Wright is excited about the partnership, remarking: “Canton Tea Company is a company that I trust to bring only excellent and interesting teas to the cups of discriminating tea drinkers. I am excited to make some of these teas more readily available to tea consumers in the United States.”

Jennifer Wood, owner of Canton Tea Co agrees: “We started Canton Tea Co four years ago by offering the UK a wide selection of fresh, high grade, whole leaf teas direct from the farms.
