This very decorated design promotes Japanese and Chinese teas expressly packed and imported for E. Guittard & Co. of San Francisco. The company's founder, Etienne Guittard, traveled from France to the Barbary Coast in hopes of benefitting from the California Gold Rush. He came armed with chocolate from his uncle's factory to trade for mining supplies, but soon realized that the chocolates were a valuable delicacy of their own right. He founded his company in 1868 and sold coffee, tea, and spices alongside his chocolates. The company is still in operation to this day.
