New Teas!

We've got a rather eclectic group of new teas that have arrived recently, and we are quite excited about them!

First, a lovely Taiwanese tea returns to the shop: Ruby #18!

A black tea from Taiwan, this very special tea is a hybrid of the Camellia Sinensis Assamica from India and the wild Taiwanese variety growing near Sunmoon Lake. A chameleon of flavor, sometimes chocolatey, spicey, or sweet and caramely. It is always complex and wonderful.

Also returning is one of our most very special seasonal teas: Sakura Sencha!

This tea is always a quick seller, and we only get a limited amount each year, so get it while you can! The combination of Japanese sencha green tea and cherry blossoms is sure to make you feel like it's springtime (even if it's 40 degrees outside!)

We also have a brand-new tea in the shop: Almond Sugar Cookie!

This Ceylon-China black tea blend has a wonderfully nutty almond flavor, and the aroma of freshly-baked cookies! Great on its own, but add a bit of sweetener and a splash of milk and you've got a truly decadent dessert tea.

Also remember we still have some Irish Cream tea in the shop, but we might sell out before St. Patrick's Day. If you want some, now's the time to get it!
