Valentine Blend

This luscious black tea fills the air with the aroma of chocolate as it steeps, thanks to the addition of cacao nibs. Tart raspberry and pomegranate balance its sweetness, creating a well-rounded and enjoyable cup. It’s great for Valentine’s Day, but we trust that you’ll enjoy steeping it throughout the year.

Sticky Rice Tuo Cha

These mini tea cakes are infused with an herb called Nuo Mi Xiang, imparting the flavor of roasted rice into this pu’erh.  We love pu’erh for a healthy caffeine kick, as well as after a heavy meal to help with digestion, and this one is delightfully smooth, herbaceous, and savory. Enjoy it steeped many times over.

Ingredients: Pu-erh tea.
Origin: Yunnan, China.
Caffeine: MED

Black Dragon Pearls

Multiple Award-Winning Tea

These dark tea leaves have been painstakingly hand-rolled into perfect pearls, slowly unfurling as they steep into a honeyed hue.

Black Dragon Pearls have a lovely earthiness that is partnered with the slight pungency of stone fruit, and notes of powdered chocolate.

Ingredients: Black tea.
Origin: Yunnan, China
Caffeine: HIGH

Hibiscus Berry

A caffeine-free blend of floral and fruity notes with the tartness of hibiscus and elderberries to balance its sweetness, this herbal infusion lusciously quenches the palate.

Rosehips and essential orange oil complement the piquancy of tangy current and crisp apple.

Have it hot, or serve it over ice for a sugar-free fruit punch.

Ingredients: Rosehips, hibiscus flowers, currants, apples, elderberries, natural blueberry flavor, essential orange oil, natural mango flavor.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE

Gong Fu Black

Harvested in the spring in the WuYi Mountains, this elegant black tea is a great choice for first thing in the morning, or for any time of day when your mind needs refreshing. Its initial taste is soft and sweet, with a cloying pungency sneaking up in its finish.

We love its fruity liveliness, with the richness of molasses and caramel to round out its body.

Enjoy this one over several steeps, noting its different complexities each time.

Ingredients: Black tea.
Origin: Fujian, China
Caffeine: MED-HIGH

Cinnamon Orange Red

Honeybush is a close cousin of Rooibos, cultivated in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region. It has similar characteristics to rooibos, but a little sweeter with a fuller mouth feel.

Cinnamon Orange Red brilliantly offsets the natural sweetness of Honeybush with the zest of orange peel and cinnamon spiciness. The bonus is the gorgeous smell it wafts through the house while it brews.

Ingredients: Honeybush, cinnamon, orange peels, natural flavoring.
Origin:
Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE

Nepali Breakfast

This breakfast tea is a truly unique and exotic way to start the day. Steeping to a deep ruby red hue due to the addition of CTC leaves, it also sings with the bright and complex flavors of orthodox tea.

What really makes it a standout is its gorgeous layer of masala spice mix, leaving the palate awakened with notes of cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper.

Try it with some warm milk, or as a sweet treat, a touch of sugar.

Ingredients: Black tea, black pepper, ginger, black cardamom, cinnamon leaf.
Origin: Panchthar, Phidim, Nepal
Caffeine: HIGH

Maghreb Mint

Take a trip to North Africa with this worldly and spicy tea, an exotic and intoxicating blend of roasted green tea, peppermint, ginger, and cardamom. The warm nutty notes are pleasantly offset with aromatic clove and woody fennel, creating a unique and lively, unforgettable cup.

Try this tea with a touch of sugar!

Ingredients: Green tea, ginger root, cardamom, peppermint, licorice root, fennel, cloves, black pepper.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: MED

Jade Cloud

This highly unique green tea is a blend of three different styles: roasted, baked, and steamed. The combination of these styles creates a lively but beautifully smooth every day green tea that is savory as well as sweet and floral, with a toasted nuttiness finish.

Be sure not to steep it over the suggested time to preserve its delicate complexities.

Ingredients: Green tea.
Origin: Hubei, China
Caffeine: LOW-MED

Ceylon Orange Pekoe

This beautiful black tea is grown in the fresh mountain air, brilliant sunshine and abundant rainfalls of southern Sri Lanka. It has a strong, fresh black tea aroma and brews a full-bodied cup.

We love its classic and bold personality with an elegant smoothness that lingers on the palate. An outstanding orange pekoe that is at once traditional and refreshingly modern.

Ingredients: Black tea.
Origin: Sabaragamuwa, Sri Lanka
Caffeine: HIGH

Scarlet

This tea brews to a deep red liquor bursting with tart thirst-quenching goodness, a great caffeine-free tea to sip in the cold months. Currants, cranberries, blueberries, and orange peel sing with festive sweetness while the nuttiness of rooibos rounds out the finish, creating balance. Mango and passion fruit further excite the palate, making this tea a juicy punch of flavor.

Ingredients: Currants, hibiscus flowers, rose hips, rooibos, blueberries, orange peel, cranberries, natural blueberry, passion fruit and mango flavors.

 Multiple Origin Blend
