Besides being beautiful to look at, this caffeine-free herbal blend combines the floral sweetness of blueberries with the tartness of currants, balanced with hearty rooibos high in antioxidants.

Blueberry Rooibos is a great tea to enjoy after a meal, or makes a great iced tea to enjoy in the hot summer days. Kids love it too!

Ginger Snap Black

A black tea perfect for those in the mood for a sweet ginger treat!  This tea has a zestiness to it that’s great on a cold day, with bursts of peppermint and clove, but its expertise lies in the balance it has, never being overpowering and rounding out to a delicate finish.  Try it on its own or with warm milk for a richer treat. 

Ingredients: Black tea, ginger, orange peel, clove, peppermint, natural flavoring.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: HIGH

Golden Monkey

Grown at high altitudes in the misty mountains of Yunnan, China comes this fine black tea with smooth notes of honeyed peach.

For 1700 years this rare tea was enjoyed only by China’s elite ruling class. They believed it gave them special powers of agility and sexual prowess.

Today, Golden Monkey is a frequent finalist on awards lists around the world and is considered one of the finest black teas there is.

Caramel Walnut Shortbread Rooibos

A joyous caffeine-free blend of green rooibos, safflower and orange blossoms, this tea fills the air with the scent of toasted walnut and warm caramel. Deliciously buttery, we love the sweetness of this tea to sing on its own without any additional sugar, but do try it with milk to further enhance its richness.

Ingredients: Green rooibos, flavoring, safflower blossoms, and orange blossoms. 
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE

Fireside Nightcap

A perfect herbal alternative to a traditional nightcap, Fireside Nightcap is a tummy-soothing tea loaded with cardamom and star anise. Cinnamon, tart orange peel, and juicy hibiscus pair naturally with clove, giving this tea a mulled wine taste that’s sure to become a fall and winter favorite.

Ingredients: Hibiscus Flowers, cinnamon, orange peel, cloves, cardamom, star anise
Origin:
 Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE

Hibiscus Rooibos

With pineapple and mango added to this hibiscus rooibos, this tea is expected to be overpoweringly sweet, but its balance lies in the intricacy of its juxtaposing flavors. Enjoy hints of liqorice and sarsaparilla, and a welcome punch of tart lemongrass.

An excellent herbal concoction refreshing for any time of day.

Ingredients: Rooibos, hibiscus flowers, sarsaparilla root, rosehips, lemongrass, licorice root, natural passionfruit flavor, essential oil of orange, orange peel, natural pineapple and mango flavors.

Honeybush

Similar to rooibos, but slightly sweeter and more hearty, honeybush brews a deliciously comforting cup of tea.

Honeybush tea is prepared from the honey-scented Cyclopia plant found in the Cape Mountain regions of South Africa. Its unmistakable notes of hot apricot jam and a refreshing floral sweetness grant this tea a forever favorite in our herbal collection.

Try it the traditional way with milk and sugar, or enjoy it in its pure state to truly appreciate its true wonderful flavors.

Ingredients: Honeybush.
Origin:
 South Africa. 
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE

Imperial Grade Silver Needles

Silver Needles are among one of China's most famous and most prized teas. Only the first flush top buds are picked from the plant very early in the season, giving special care not to cause any damage or breakage to the bud. They are then dried in the sun.

Silver Needles are a very pure form of tea with little to no oxidation. It produces a lovely cup of very lightly colored tea, with a gorgeous array of sweet and subtle flavors.

We love enjoying this beautiful white tea in the early afternoon.

Ingredients: White tea. 
Origin: Lincang, Yunnan, China
Caffeine: MED

Pomegranate Acai Yum Berry

This tart and seasonal treat starts with a base of grassy green tea. Acai and yumberry pack a juicy punch, while pomegranate and raspberry balance its sweetness with tang. Almond and cornflower round out this tea to a complex and vibrant new fall favorite.

*Contains Tree Nuts.

Ingredients: Green teas, almond slivers, hibiscus flowers, raspberry pieces, pomegranate flavoring, cornflower petals, acai flavoring, and yumberry flavoring.
Origin:
Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: LOW-MED

Premium Grade Anxi "Ben Shan" Oolong Tea

A high grade Jade style oolong, we love this tea for its unique fruity taste balanced beautifully with a grassy, slightly cooling finish. Its smoothness lingers, but leaves a brightness at the end, making it an easy-drinking tea that can handle multiple steeps.

2021 Harvest.

Ingredients: Oolong tea. 
Origin:
 Fujian, China
Caffeine: MED

The Royal Emperor's Chai

Global Tea Championship Winner
2018 Judge’s Choice

This elegant and beautiful chai gets the royal treatment with the addition of rose petals and the worldly infusion of cardamom and anise. Fresh ginger and cinnamon add a welcome heat to its finish, while its body of strong Assam adds a robust caffeinated punch.

Ingredients: Assam black tea, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, black pepper, anise, fennel and rose petals.
Origin:
 Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: MED-HIGH

Wild Thai Green

This roasted green tea from Thailand is light and lively with notes of tropical fruit, toasted hazelnut, and honey.

Its wild orchid aroma beautifully scents the room when brewed, and its strength brightens the body and lends some energy to a lethargic afternoon.

A fresh and pleasant green tea to perfectly quench the palate.

Ingredients: Green tea.
Origin: Doi Chiang Dao, Thailand
Caffeine: 
MED

Yi Mei Ren Black Tea

This fervent Yunnan black tea has the familiar notes of bittersweet chocolate like other black teas from the Wu Liang Mountains, but with the complexities and lingering smoothness of an expertly crafted oolong. Highly aromatic with a clear tea liquor brewing to a lovely deep golden hue, this tea's subtlety is most appreciated in its natural state. Due to its higher levels of oxidization, this tea can be stored for several years, but it's so delicious we don't think that will be possible!

Spring 2021 harvest.

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