A Sneak Peek at our August 2020 Boxes

A Sneak Peek at our August 2020 Boxes

Greetings, tea lovers!

We’ve received our big shipment of fresh 2020 teas and August is the first month they’ll be shipping in your box. There are several others coming in the next few months, almost all of which are brand new to Tea Runners.

Receiving these fresh teas is always a big thrill. Nothing beats the lovely aroma of opening a big bag of fresh tea.

We’ve also ordered a dozen or so small batch rare teas that will be offered exclusively in our store, so watch for that in the coming weeks.

We hope you’re enjoying your summer and enduring this “new normal.” Good tea makes life better. Enjoy!

~ Tea Runners

Yunnan Pine Needles

The fresh green tea is first fried in a wok to halt oxidation, then rolled, wilted, and dried again. In the final stage of processing the tea is pressed flat to shape it into what the locals call “Song Zhen” (Pine Needles).

Yunnan Pine Needles brews up a lovely, fresh green tea with notes of umami, fresh green grass, and a little nuttiness. A to-die-for aroma is followed by a buttery mouthfeel and a delicate sweetness that lingers on the palate.
