As everyone tends to do this time of year, we are reflecting back on the past twelve months. We have seen many teas come and go, but these teas, were voted your favorites of 2014. We can’t wait to see what 2015 will bring!
Breakfast Assam - This is a great everyday Assam, very hearty and malty, but with a nice clean taste. This tea is our first choice for using as a base tea for Chai.
Roasted Chestnut -This is a deep, dark, rich black tea blend with a delicious aroma. It has a roasty nut flavor with a little sweet silkiness. This is a perfect cooler weather black tea blend. Contains: China black tea, roasted mate, Houjicha, flavor, and sliced almonds. Dark Rose - This dark tea from Hunan province of China, is medium to full-bodied, very smooth, with a delicious dusty rose flavor and aroma. Contains dark tea and rose petals. Blue Beauty Oolong - This greener oolong from the Fujian province is a regional specialty tea rarely seen outside of China. It brews up very aromatic, sweet, floral, and slightly spicy with a pronounced silky texture. The leaf is sprinkled with ginseng and licorice root, and then folded many times so you will get many steepings from the same leaf. Gyokuro - Japan's finest green tea. Also known as "Precious Dew." This Japanese tea produces an incredibly luminescent tea with a very intense, complex aroma and taste, with traces of sweetness, a slight bitterness, and the taste of the sea. Green Tea with Mango - Sweet, smooth, and summery. Those are your first impressions when you sip this sencha based green tea. The aroma of fresh mangos rises from the steeped cup, and the tea itself is smooth, sweet, and silky and brings to mind tropical breezes on desert islands. This tea is wonderful when made hot, and incredible when made iced. Machu Peach-u - This white tea from China has a prominent peach aroma and a flavor that is very smooth, very very peachy, with lots of body for a white tea. If you're looking for a white tea that is a little silky, a little sweet, and has a little something extra -- this is the tea.
Thanks for a great year!
