Absolutely, and it’s very simple! You choose your products and place your order as usual, when the moment comes to indicate to us the information concerning the delivery address, simply provide the complete contact information of the person to whom you want the parcel to be delivered to.
Don’t forget to check the provided ‘Gift wrapping’ tick-box (and maybe to add a little note from you) before confirming your order.
When you receive your THEODOR parcel, it is very likely that you discover a few additional attentions, slipped by our 'little hands' while preparing your parcel, only for you ;) Among these, it is possible that you find evenemential individual teabags, called "doses", either they are of "laziness", "happiness", or even "fairy" or "love" (who knows)...
With full transparency, for all of the existing products on our catalog, no date is mentioned on teabags, because they are sold inside a box on which all necessary information are mentioned (including the famous date of minimum durability (DMD) assigned when the tea is being produced).
As these "doses" are not intended for sale and as they are not presented inside a box, it is possible that we had to append a date on the teabag when the overwrapping was manufactured, but don't worry, in any case it is not a DMD but in fact the date indicating the production of the overwrapping.
And to add even more precisions to this, as you certainely know it, we produce the tea for each order, which is also the case for the tea contained inside eventual "evenemential" tea doses. Of course, the tea is always produced according to the event, so that it is the most fresh and the most recent possible.
Besides, our tea house is registered in eco-friendly values, which is why, in case there was some overwrappings left in our warehouses following an event, we could be led to use them again later even if they were initially scheduled for an event in particular, instead of simply throwing them away (the date that is mentioned on the teabag is not important, but the tea itself is indeed produced at the moment M especially for the occasion).
It seems important to us to add one more precision, in any case, the date mentioned on the box (box of 25 teabags, advent calendar, new year or advent calendar, gift sets...) is indeed the one to be taken into account, testifying the production date of the tea contained inside.
Besides, please know that in any case, and the information is only to reassure you, the dates indicated on all of our blends are no "best before dates" because tea is no perishable goods, it is however a date of minimal durability, and even if you still had a doubt, the tea woul dbe perfectly drinkable and without any risk for your health!
On each product page you will find the preparation tips, to successfully prepare your infusion. Especially the water temperature and the infusion time; those data are given for informative purposes only, because the infusion time can vary according to the person’s taste.
Our purchase and deliveries, arrive in a permanent and regular way, taking into account the availability of the offered quality of ‘harvestings’, of the seasonality, directly to a group of small farmers, throughout the year, according to the origins and referenced as the years go along.
Our teas are subject to a selection plantation by plantation, based on specifications very precise and being subject to numerous verifications.
They are selected by Guillaume LELEU, our tea taster. (See the article ‘Where do our teas come from?’)
Our blends are exclusively created by our tea taster, Guillaume Leleu, founder of THEODOR House (See ‘The Impertinent Parisian’)
Our house, is unique in the French tea landscape, because we produce our blends and pack our teas in our workshops in Bonnières sur Seine, near Paris. In this capacity, we do not register in a logic of business or storage, whereas in an approach of quality, freshness and excellence, which leads us to produce practically by order. We are unfortunately not in a position to forward samples to you by post mail outside of an order placed on our online shop or when purchasing in a store.
All of our products are KOSHER certified, which demands heavy constraints during the selection of our raw materials and demands a strict selection of suppliers. This certification is subject to audits every year within our facilities and guarantees the whole food safety of our products. (See the article ‘Kashrut certificate’)
Various factors can explain the evolution of the teas. The teas are composed of natural raw materials for the main part. Thanks to them, the teas evolve, develop and improve with time, contrary to a tea containing a majority of synthetic products which do not evolve, either in color or in taste.
The preservation conditions play a key role in the evolution of the teas. We recommend to keep them away from air, light, humidity and heat.
Besides, the difference of perception of a same tea can also have other explanations:
