A Sneak Peek at our April 2021 Boxes

A Sneak Peek at our April 2021 Boxes

Happy April, tea lovers!

We have begun placing our orders for fresh 2021 harvest teas and you will start seeing those in our line up soon. Teas that were literally picked last week are in transit to our warehouse in Washington. 

Our web store is well-stocked, and we will have 30+ more teas added to our store in April, including some new teas for our Elite Tea section.

Many of you have been asking when our Easy Brew Glass Teapots will become available -- we recently placed an order for 3000 teapots and our best guess on when they will be available for purchase is June.

Happy Easter!

Lavender Raspberry Honeybush

Global Tea Championship Winner
3rd Place, Blended Herbal


This delightful caffeine-free treat is rich in good-for-you antioxidants. Its sweetness is pleasantly cut with tart raspberry, creating a perfect balance on the palate.

Fragrant and calming lavender adds a sophistication to this tea, further enhancing its place as part of the ideal bed time ritual.

Ingredients: Honeybush, lavender petals, & natural flavoring.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE

Jade Spring

Jade Spring is a tea rarely found on the open market. It is a tea that exemplifies the art of Chinese tea making. Plucked in the first flush of spring, the leaf is well preserved during processing, giving it an appearance similar to a silver needle white.

This tender green tea is naturally sweet, light and vegetal. A delightful sip that makes a wonderful compliment to any meal.

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

Earl Grey Lavender

Here we have a welcomingly different twist on a classic. With citrusy bergamot pressed from real fruit and flowers, and the intoxicating fragrance of organic lavender blossoms, the Earl Grey Lavender is an elegant wake-me-up tea in the morning.

One of our most popular teas!

Ingredients: Organic black tea, organic lavender flowers, essential bergamot oil, natural lavender oil extract.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: HIGH

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.

Ingredients: White tea
Origin: Fujian, China
Caffeine: MED

Russian Caravan

Named after the historic practice of teas from China reaching Russia via caravans of camels, this strong black tea is a forward and bold worldly blend. Assam packs a punch while dark oolong creates a smooth refinement. Pu-erh loads it with further depth and body while a dash of lapsang souchong adds a kiss of smoke.

A delicious cup for those who like a smoked tea!

Ingredients: Smoked black tea, pu-erh tea.
Origin: China and India
Caffeine: HIGH

Nepalese Ruby Black Tea

This rare artisan small-batch tea is carefully rolled to give it a fine twist, then completely oxidized for up to 26 hours at an elevation of 6500+ ft. The constant flow of mist in the air at this elevation makes oxidation slow, allowing the artisan tea producer to achieve maximum desired color and aroma. It is then dried and matured with time and perfection.

Ruby Black is an excellent morning tea, lively and uplifting with stone fruit aromas and notes of raisin, roasted pecans, and chocolate.

Ingredients: Black tea
Origin: Maipokhari, Ilam region, Nepal
Caffeine: MED-HIGH

Formerly called "Lhotse Black"

Imperial Grade Yunnan Yellow

Yellow tea is the rarest of the six classes of tea and only produced in China. It is not commonly found in the North American market.

It is produced in a similar manner to black tea, with sun withering, rolling, oxidation and drying, but the main difference is the sun withering and oxidation stages are much shorter. The result is a lovely tea with a sweet, clean, bright, and floral taste - like a green tea without the grassiness.

Ingredients: Yellow tea.
Origin: Simao, Yunnan, China
Caffeine: MED

Imperial Grade Golden Bud

This rare and beautiful tea is picked from established plants in the Mojiang area of Simao. It is a summer harvest tea that has been carefully processed to keep its lovely appearance and guard its subtle sugarcane and malty flavors.

We recommend steeping this tea one cup at a time at a lower temperature than other black teas to preserve its delicate flavors.

Summer 2020 harvest.

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

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

Heart Chakra Yogi Tea

The Heart Chakra, located in the heart center of the chest, is believed to control our perceptions of love, emotion, compassion and balance. An open and balanced Heart Chakra will allow us to feel unconditional love and oneness with the universe. This delightful blend of love-inspiring herbs produces a purple-red cup with a floral aroma and a fruity, spicy taste that is complex and truly exquisite. 

Ingredients: Cacao nibs, damiana leaf, hibiscus flowers, cloves, vanilla beans, rose petals, jasmine blossoms & red clover.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: Caffeine-Free

Blue Mountain Black

The Nilgiri tea-growing region in southern India is mostly known for producing strong, bold black teas, similar to the ceylon black teas of neighboring Sri Lanka, but with their own unique flavors. At up to 8000 ft above sea level, it is one of the highest-elevation tea growing regions in the world, and one of the most beautiful.

Blue Mountain Black is an exquisite treat with a unique and worldly flavor profile, sure to become a favorite.

Ingredients: Black tea.
Origin: Nilgiri, India.
Caffeine: HIGH

Ginger Lime Rooibos

This delightful caffeine-free blend of ginger and lime is one of our most popular herbal teas. It is bright and zesty - perfect for anytime of day.

Fragrant lemongrass and Australian lemon myrtle lend citrusy complexity to this spirited rooibos blend. 

Ingredients: Green rooibos, ginger, lemongrass, lemon myrtle, licorice root, essential lime and tangerine oils.
Origin:

Chamomile Medley

This soothing but striking chamomile blend is an expert pairing of Croatian chamomile blossoms, refreshing spearmint, lemon verbena, and the sharpness of lemongrass.

We love the floral notes of this tea balanced with the pungency of tangy citrus, a welcome surprise to the palate.

A great way to end a rich meal, or calm the senses on a busy afternoon.
