This category seemed to be the best fit for this product; other than chocolate, there isn't really a category for food/beverages. My boyfriend has gifted me tea from this company on two separate occasions, and I really love their products (their White Shizandra tea is my favorite). Zhi does not use toxic pesticides or fertilizers - they are a member of the Organic Trade Association. They are also Fair Trade Certified; they provide a safe working environment and equitable wages to their employees. They value their customers, their workers, and the environment. Teapots, mugs and other functional items are available for purchase, as well as a wide variety of teas. My boyfriend gifted me a Perfect Tea Maker - add tea, then fill with hot water. After steeping, place the tea maker over a mug, and the tea releases into the mug. (This is what I rated on durability. I have had this for almost a year, and it has held up well). I gave a 5 for occasion and entertainment value, because you can entertain guests with tea.
