  • Pu-erh Ginger

    Loose pu-erh tea, generously blended with the bite of real ginger.  Pu-erh is a unique category of tea. It is sometimes called ‘doubly fermented’. The fermentation of leaves following oxidation gives this organic tea unique properties and a very unique taste. It is smooth, rich and often has the ‘fermentation’ aspect to the flavor. Pu-erh can be loose or pressed into cakes. Some very old pu-erh cakes are as valuable as old wine.

    Serving Suggestion:  Serve hot and strong.

    Brewing Instructions:  Steep 4 minutes at 190-195F

    Ingredients:  Pu-erh tea, real ginger bits.

    Sourced from a certified organic, Fair Trade supplier.

  • Earl Grey Premium

    There are tea people and then there are Earl Grey tea people (who are somewhat like chai people in that they are ever on the prowl for that special one).  We are definitely in the second group..always looking for perfection.  So, we finally decided to blend our own to get exactly what we were looking for.  This is a smooth, fragrant, Earl Grey delight.  We used two blends of Earl Grey we loved, each for their own qualities, and combined them in just the right ratio for a result that is the best of each, and completely lovely.  This will make Earl Grey lovers very happy.

    Serving Suggestion:  Makes lattes ‘to live for’ if you’re one of those Vanilla Earl Grey Latte types.  Just make sure you use a really quality vanilla syrup.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 3-4 minutes (strong tea) at 190-195F.

    Ingredients:  Black tea, essential Bergamot oil

WHAT TEA IS...AND ISN'T - THE BASICS

whatisteaTea is from one plant, in simple terms, while herbals are a wide variety, from many different plants.  

WHAT IS 'BLENDING'?

blending-blogSometimes teas or herbals are infused without anything added.  However, in some countries, a more popular infusion is from blending together teas with teas.

IS IT 'STEEPING' OR 'BREWING'?

brew-or-steepIn the world of tea, you hear both terms often.  And there’s really no difference, unless you’re a knit-picker.
