EMERGE STRONGER, HEALTHIER, AND MORE VIBRANT THAN EVER
Our company began out of a love for the earth and the well being of our fellow brothers and sisters. The Camellia Sinensis plant (a.k.a tea) has a wealth of wonderful health benefits that we combine with the natural medicinal power of herbals. Herbalism nourishes the body, and it does so while being a very safe medicine with little to no side effects and a small expense. Instead of masking a bodily ailment, herbs go down to the root of the problem, working to slowly restore and heal.
When purchasing Four Stages hand-blended, artisanal tea, you can be confident you’re taking in the highest quality of tea and herbs that not only nourish you, but also the planet and communities they’re grown in. And when possible and necessary, every ingredient is sourced fair-trade and organic.
Every blend of ours is loose leaf, as opposed to the tea “fannings” that fill most of the bags on supermarket shelves – a lower quality product that is left at the bottom of the tea barrel, which results in a bitter or less flavorful cup with a lower shelf life. In contrast, the Orthodox making method consists of four stages, after the tea’s hand picked: Withering, Rolling, Oxidation and Drying. Walking down a hidden wooded path one sunny morning, a butterfly fluttered past me, and I was struck by its beauty. I suddenly felt called to use this magnificent creature’s own four stage cycle as a basis for a company with self-transformation at the forefront.
As a tea and herb nerd myself, I truly believe that fantastic things happen when we care about what we put into our bodies, and take control of our health, both physical and mental. We emerge into the strongest, most vibrant versions of ourselves. And the best part: We’re already there, just waiting to be nourished and set free.
Go ahead: Steep, sip, nourish, fly.
THANKS TO FOUR STAGES I'VE FOUND MY NEW FAVORITE TEA BLEND!
"My favorite thing about this tea brand is the unique blends. Most small businesses tend to have a few generic blends of tea, but the owner has used her expertise in herbal medicine and culinary service to create unique tea blends that you can't find anywhere else. My personal favorites are Lady Lavender, a lavender earl gray that pairs perfectly with lemon cake, and Nectar, a unique chocolate tea blend that's reminiscent of cozy winter days. This brand is perfect for anyone looking to find ethically sourced, unique blends at an affordable price."
MY FAVORITE CHAI TEA ON THE MARKET
"Four Stages' Chai tea is a perfectly balanced blend of refreshing spice and creamy smoothness. It's my favorite chai tea on the market because it's lighter than coffee but still gives me lots of energy! It also happens to be brewed locally in Atlanta, which is a plus for me, because I love to support local businesses. I love this tea so much that I buy it by the gallon! It's great on ice or warmed up for the changing season. I highly recommend trying it!"
UNIQUE AND FLAVORFUL
"Four Stages Spicebush Masala Chai is a unique and flavorful take on traditional masala chai. It has the perfect amount of warm spice flavor, which balances well with a little milk and honey. It makes a great after-dinner tea! I love the 'best brewing' directions on back so that I can maximize the flavor of my cup. I can definitely tell that this tea was crafted with precision and care."
