A Sneak Peek at August 2022

A Sneak Peek at August 2022

Hello Tea Lovers!

This month we've got more fresh 2022 harvests of some of our very popular  pure teas, including Black Gold Biluochun, Imperial Gold Needle, and Long Mei Yunnan Green Tea.  

We're also offering fresh blends that go great in the summer, including Orange Jasmine Blossom, Raspberry Green Tea, Savannah Sunrise, Lavenderberry, and more. 

Although pretty much any tea you like hot will make a good iced tea, we try to include ones in the summer that we feel go especially good on ice. 

Watch for an upcoming teaware sale throughout the month of August! 

Happy sipping and stay cool!
