Serving Tea in a Café
The number of teas you should offer depends on the specific needs of your business. Most wholesale customers that serve tea carry between 6-20 types. It is a good idea to cover the basic tea categories (such as white, green, oolong, black and herbal) as well as the basic flavor profiles (such as traditional, floral, fruity, tropical, minty and spiced).

Keep it simple! We recommend offering only one standard size teapot or cup around 16 ounces.
A menu posted on the wall should be simple and straightforward. Be sure to list both the name and type of tea (for example, “Ginger Peach – Organic White Tea”). Printed menus, on the other hand, should offer enticing descriptions similar to a wine list.
