Lemon Drop Black

One of our favorite tea providers has come up with this tantalizing malty black tea infused with tart lemon peel, and we can't get enough of it.

Queen Victoria was one of the first to enjoy her cup of tea with a slice of lemon, and we love how the citrus offsets the natural molasses notes in this expertly blended tea.

Try it in its purest state without the addition of milk to really enjoy its complexities.

Ingredients: Black tea, lemon peel, lemon verbena, and natural flavoring. 
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: HIGH

Big Snow Mountain of Mengku Black Tea

This black tea comes from the high-altitude tea farming region in Lincang. It is processed from the first flush of spring assamica tea leaves of 30-40 year old naturally grown tea plants.

Big Snow Mountain Black brews a deep red liquor with floral notes and a sweet thick mouthfeel.

Spring 2022 harvest.

Bourbon Barrel Chai

This spicy black tea warms the palate with traditional chai flavors but with an added depth to its finish. Cinnamon, cloves, anise, and cardamom harmonize beautifully with an extra helping of ginger and nutmeg, making this tea pack a punch both in flavor and caffeine.  We love it enhanced with your favorite milk, making it a rich and creamy treat.

Rwandan Black

Produced by a cooperative of small farmers in Rwanda, this robust but deliciously smooth orthodox black tea sings with strong notes of toasted walnut. Perfect for the beginning of the day, we love the familiar Ceylon profile usually found in good breakfast teas, but appreciate the slight sweetness left on the palate.

Smooth, creamy, and sweet-- just like the real thing-- this lovely caffeine-free tea has a base of antioxidant-packed rooibos with shredded coconut, safflower blossom, and organic cocoa nibs.

Burgundy Blast is enjoyable both hot and iced.

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.

Spring 2022 harvest.

Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea of Jiangxi

Yun Wu ("cloud and mist") is a famous high-end Chinese green tea. This particular lot, from the 2022 harvest in Jiangxi, is sweet and thick with an umami aftertaste that lingers in the throat.

It is buttery smooth and very well balanced. A very enjoyable green tea even for those who are not regular green tea drinkers.
