Keemun 1st Grade

One of our favorite ways to start the day is with a strong cup of Keemun, and this first grade tea is a cut above the rest.  It’s nutty, it’s strong, and it’s earthy, but everything is balanced beautifully with a sweet and floral finish.  A perfect breakfast tea.

Origin: Fujian, China
Caffeine: HIGH

Juniper Tonic

If you’re a gin and tonic fan, this is the tea for you. Vibrant gunpowder green tea gets a helping hand from juniper berries, with hints of ginger, cardamom, lemon, and cinnamon. It’s at once throat warming and soothing, but also sophisticated enough to serve as an alternative to a cocktail.

Caffeine: LOW-MED

White Pearls

White teas are picked in early spring from the youngest shoots of the plant where the mild natural sweetness of new growth is most concentrated.

These first flush peony silver needles are delicately handcrafted into the shape of tiny pearls. White pearls of this exquisite quality are in high demand and becoming exceedingly rare.

With its soft mouth feel and cotton candy sweetness, white teas reflect all of nature's goodness. A perfect daytime tea.

Big Red Robe

This is a traditional roasted Yancha tea, also known by its Chinese name Da Hong Pao. Proper Yancha should be a perfect harmony of minerality with a honey sweetness, a roasted nuttiness, and finished with a floral elegance. This one doesn’t disappoint. An earthy tea with a great balance.
