A Sneak Peek at our October 2020 Boxes

A Sneak Peek at our October 2020 Boxes

Happy October, tea lovers!

The weather in our neck of the woods has taken a turn for the colder, and in our opinion, there’s nothing better than a hot cup of tea on a crisp fall morning.

This month we‘ve got a few pumpkin flavored offerings to richen up your tea collection, delicious on their own or with warm milk as a decadent twist. The featured Salty Caramel Pumpkin Black is back again because of its enormous popularity, but we’ve also added the award-winning Pumpkin Spice Oolong as a customization option this month, which is one of our personal fav pumpkin teas. As the leaves fall and the seasons change once again, we’ll be introducing some new and delicious seasonal teas in the upcoming months.

Members of our Pure Tea Box are in for a real treat this month. We’ve managed to get our hands on a tea that has eluded us for the past 2 years, the wonderful Yunnan Purple Buds. It is simply one of the most delicious purple teas we’ve ever had. (Please note this tea is only available to Pure Tea Box members, but will be available in our store toward the end of October.)

Please continue to stay safe, and know how much we appreciate your support. Here’s to many more cups of comforting tea.

Salty Caramel Pumpkin Black

This delicious offering is a perfect accompaniment to the fall season, oozing with sweet and salty caramel goodness and savory pumpkin.

The smooth amber hued liquor has a satisfying roundness in its mouthfeel, while the addition of marigold petals brightens its finish.

Try it on its own or with warm milk to make it extra rich.

Ingredients: Black tea, marigold petals and pumpkin and salty caramel flavorings.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: MED-HIGH



The Royal Emperor's Chai

Global Tea Championship Winner
2018 Judge's Choice Award

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



Yunnan Purple Buds

Yunnan Purple Buds is a premium lot of the rare purple leaf tea cultivar called Zi Juan ("Purple Beauty"). Zi Juan is high in anthocyanin, an antioxidant, giving the leaves their purple color.

This unique black tea, from an exceptionally well-maintained organic tea garden in Yunnan, is one of our absolute favorites. Sweet, spicy, and slightly bitter, Yunnan Purple Buds is a purple tea unlike any other.


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



Houjicha

Although this tea brews to a dark and lovely amber hue, Houjicha is a green tea by nature.

Traditional Bancha Japanese green tea is taken through an extra roasting step to transform it into this chocolaty smooth treasure with milder levels of caffeine, which means it can also be enjoyed into the evening.

A bonus for coffee lovers will be the savory coffee bean notes on the finish.

Ingredients: Green tea.
Origin: Kagoshima prefecture, Japan
Caffeine: LOW



Imperial Sencha Rose

Imperial Sencha Rose is the perfect marriage of green tea and rose petals. This luxurious hand-crafted blend delivers the experience of walking through an Imperial garden full of fresh fragrant roses in bloom.

Soothing and aromatic, this delicate blend is an elegant tea for anytime of day.

Ingredients: Green tea, rose petals.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: LOW



Fujian Black

The leaves of this unusual black tea are distinctively smaller than traditional teas of this type, reflecting the endless variety and tastes of Chinese tea makers. High-fired and crafted to the local taste profile, this tea has a pleasingly strong aroma and has soft notes that grow to a natural sweetness. The leaves are smaller and they will release their aromas quickly.

We recommend enjoying this lovely tea on its own, without adding milk or sugar.

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



Mystic Mint

This seemingly simple blend of peppermint, cardamom, and licorice root combine to form a deep and uplifting complexity to refresh your spirits.

Savor the sweet notes of basil with a slight hint of clove as you relax and digest after a meal, or as an uncaffeinated night cap to settle the body for sleep.

If you think you don't like caffeine-free teas, mystic mint may change your tune.

Ingredients: Peppermint, cardamom, licorice root, essential basil and clove leaf oils.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE



SSSpicy

Global Tea Championship Winner
2nd Place, Unflavored Herbal Blends

Warm your tummy and heart with this extra spicy chai, a tea that enlivens and wakes up the sense without the addition of caffeine.

We love the traditional combination of ginger, cardamom, and clove with the punch of black pepper that sings on the tongue, all with a subtle sweet finish that invigorates the entire palate.

Ingredients: Black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, and ginger.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: Caffeine-Free



Bao Zhong Royale

One of our favorite oolongs, this spectacular tea is lightly oxidized but still hefty on floral complexity with little to no astringency.

We love its complicated combination of roasted stone fruit, unsweetened coconut, and firewood, with a deliciously rich and buttery, creamy aftertaste.

It also withstands multiple infusions.

Ingredients: Oolong tea.
Origin: Mingjian Village, Taiwan
Caffeine: MED



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: Nigiri, Sri Lanka
Caffeine: HIGH




Additional Customization Options


Citron Mint Black

An award-winning flavored black tea with mint and lemon. One of our favs!
