One of our all-time favorites, the Winter Wonderland Rooibos is a crowd-pleasing decadent treat at any time during the year.

Hazelnut flavoring, Bavarian chocolate and fiery cinnamon create the unmistakable taste of birthday cake, making this a great stand-in for raiding the chocolate drawer or, because it's also caffeine-free, a yummy treat for the kids. Pair it with a dash of warm milk to make it truly delectable.

Ingredients: Green rooibos, cacao nibs, cinnamon pieces, flavoring (chocolate, hazelnuts, cinnamon), and blue cornflower petals.
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: CAFFEINE-FREE



Creme Brulee Black

This lovely flavored black tea has all the taste and aroma of the indulgent dessert itself. Buttery, creamy, and a lingering aftertaste of caramelized brown sugar.

Dessert in a cup!

Simple Earl Grey

This delightful Earl Grey is crafted from a strong South Indian Black Tea.  Upon opening, the distinctive aroma of citrus bergamot is evident. Take a second sniff, and you'll detect a richer orange zest note, slightly sweeter than other bergamots.

Sip it hot for or try it as a sun tea for a refreshing twist. Try enhancing the experience by serving it with a slice of orange to elevate the brightness of this delightful tea.

Empress Green

A special category of teas is cultivated in the early spring, processed according to local traditions in terms of appearance, flavor, and aroma. Typically produced in small batches and seldom exported, these teas often stand out for their exceptional quality, providing a glimpse into the diverse world of Chinese tea. Primarily available in local tea markets and directly from farms, these fresh teas are crafted from cultivars that have adapted to the regional terroir, resulting in unique taste characteristics.

Empress Green emanates a sweet, aromatic fragrance with subtle hints of anise. The flavor profile leans more toward natural sweetness than vegetal notes. When steeped, the taste unfolds with nuance, featuring light grassy undertones and hints of stone fruit.

An outstanding green tea!

Morning's Oolong Tea

For those not looking for an immediate morning caffeinated jolt, Morning’s Oolong offers a gentle start to your day. Alternatively, with its reduced caffeine levels, you can savor it later in the evening without worrying about disrupting your sleep.

Upon opening Morning’s Oolong, you'll be greeted by a robust infusion of lemon and an intriguing element—this is the basil leaf incorporated into the blended oolong. The basil imparts a uniquely delightful aroma reminiscent of a fresh herb garden. Yet, as the tea brews, it transforms into a delightful and soothing cup of oolong. Experience a harmonious blend of smooth lemon zest and the invigorating essence of basil, all enveloped by the light and slightly nutty undertones of the oolong base.

Golden Needle

Golden Needle stands among the select few esteemed high-grade black teas hailing from Fujian Province. Cultivated organically and meticulously crafted, its early-spring leaves boast a glossy, slender appearance. Upon steeping, these leaves unfurl to reveal remarkably sweet flavors and aromas. 

The flavor is enticingly sweet and richly textured, with a chocolatey and malty fragrance. Steeps into a vibrant, clear red hue.

Everest Breakfast

Everest Breakfast is a gracefully uncomplicated blend of two ingredients, featuring Tippy Indian Assam and the robust Chinese Yunnan black teas. Upon opening, the tea evokes the nostalgic scent of dry fall leaves gathered into a pile.

After brewing, allow the tea a moment to cool. The intricate notes of this blend emerge as the temperature lowers. At a reduced temperature, savor a subtly astringent malty sweetness—a hallmark of a robust breakfast black tea. For a milder touch, add a splash of whole milk, or indulge in a delightful treat by incorporating a spoonful of homemade sweetened whipped cream.

Ingredients: Tippy Assam Black Tea and Yunnan Black Tea
Origin: Multiple Origin Blend
Caffeine: HIGH

For your first experience, savor this tea served neat to fully appreciate its diverse range of flavors. Afterward, let your creativity run wild and personalize it according to your preferences.
