Apricot Green

Green tea from China with the delicate flavors of apricots. Makes a light and refreshing drink that’s popular both hot and iced. If you are new to green tea, this lightly flavored tea may be a good place to start. In Latin apricot means ‘precious,’ a label earned because it ripens earlier than most summer fruits. A relative of the peach, the apricot was originally found growing wild on the mountain slopes of China more than 4,000 years ago. Apricots progressively made their way through the Persian Empire to the Mediterranean where they were fondly adopted. Spanish explorers introduced the apricot to the New World, and they were planted in the gardens of Spanish missions all over California. The first recorded major production of apricots in America was in 1792 south of San Francisco.

Earl Grey Bravo

A classic blend of premium black tea from Sri Lanka, flavored with bergamot (a citrus fruit). The perfect afternoon tea: zesty and exhilarating fresh citrus aroma, slightly dry to the nose, with a rounded and balanced orange rind flavor to match the tang of the Ceylon. Pleasantly dry finish with lingering citrus sweetness. It is said that in 1830, an Englishman named Charles Earl Grey traveled on a diplomatic mission to China, where in return for his act of kindness, a local man presented him with the recipe for making this distinctive tea. A few corrections are in order. Firstly, the Chinese have never been black tea drinkers, and were unlikely to have a recipe for Earl Grey to bestow on visitors. Secondly, Charles Earl Grey never set foot in China. Otherwise, the story is completely true.

Berry Blast

A delicious blend of natural fruits and spices that brews up a mouthwatering cup of herbal tea. Entirely caffeine free, it holds a special appeal for kids and sweet-toothed adults. Yet contains no sugar or other sweeteners. The flavor is all natural, emanating from hibiscus flowers, rose hips, cranberries, natural forest berries flavor and blueberries. Highly addictive; Please proceed with caution!

True berries are a simple fruit having seeds and edible pulp produced from a single ovary. There are many varieties of berries, flavors ranging from sweet to sour. However, the berries we are most familiar with are not true berries by definition- such as blackberries (which are made from different ovaries), blueberries (created from another part of the plant that is not an ovary), and strawberries (the edible part of the fruit is not generated by an ovary). Whether true or not, mixed together to create a sweet blend makes us all believers.


Assam Melody

Bold black tea from the Assam region of India. Assam tea is known for a deep, burgundy-red cup and pungent flavor. Our Assam Melody is perfect for tea drinkers who may be new to the powerful character of Assam. Rich aroma, more sweet starchy than malty, like roasted plantains. Rounded mouthfeel, malty without being overpowering. Slight notes of raisin. Brisk astringency and not extremely pungent. A solid, ‘friendly’ Assam, from the well-regarded Meleng Estate.

Assam is the world’s largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, and bordering Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). Assam has a tropical climate, heavily influenced by the monsoons and without the normal hot and dry season found in the rest of India. In the warmest month, the temperature is in the mid to upper 80’s, while in January, low 60’s are the norm. The most prized Assams are the second flush teas, coming right before the monsoons, with a rich, spicy and malty flavor. Teas harvested during and right after the rainy season tend to be softer and more floral in character.

Peppermint

Dried peppermint leaves to make a minty, refreshing drink that is highly satisfying both hot and cold. A native of the Mediterranean, peppermint leaves were often used to crown luminaries in ancient Greece and Rome. It continues to be revered for its refreshingly light aroma, as well as its natural, caffeine-free taste. If you have yet to try gourmet peppermint, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by its superior flavor.

Indigenous to Europe and Asia, peppermint has been naturalized in North America and is found near streams and in other wet sites. It is cultivated for its essential oil. Natural hybridization among wild species has yielded many varieties of peppermint, but only two, the black and the white, are recognized by growers. The former has purplish and the latter green stems. Black peppermint is extensively grown in the United States. The white variety is less hardy and less productive, but its oil is considered more delicate.
