Hello Sweetie
Hello Sweetie is a custom blend that we created for our customer, James. What initially started out as a coconut cream pie flavor with a puerh base tea turned into a banana, coconut, praline (nuts), and toffee flavor with our Premium Taiwanese Assam base tea.

We are not entirely sure but this delicious combination has a creamy coconut and fresh banana flavor while also presenting a delicious praline flavor that adds a cookie quality to the tea. The toffee adds a buttery texture, while the base tea provides sweet cacao and caramel notes. If you love high quality teas with complex flavors and Doctor Who references then this tea is for you! We recommend adding a little sugar to transform this tea into an exquisite tropical cookie.

Peach Beer
Our Peach Beer tea is very similar to our Peach HoppiTea. The base tea has been switched from a Nepalese tea to our Thurbo Darjeeling. This blend pairs our Thurbo Darjeeling tea with Cascade Hops and peaches. Cascade hops adds a touch of bitterness, somewhat like grapefruit, and is unmistakably hoppy. The peaches add a hint of sweetness that contrasts the bitterness well. The combination of these three ingredients creates a truly unique tea. We recommend allowing this tea to cool to a warm temperature for a more beer-like flavor. For a sweeter flavor, sugar may be added but will reduce the intensity of the hops. To read more about this custom blend experience, click HERE for a short interview with blend designer. Please note, this picture is of our old blend not the current tea.

Ingredients: Thurbo Darjeeling (Indian Black Tea), Freeze-Dried Peaches, Cascade Hops, Organic Natural Flavoring (vegan)

Sansia Black
Our Sansia Black originates from Sansia, Taiwan. This region primarily focuses on green tea, making this an unusual tea. Our Sansia Black utilizes a local varietal, Qingxin Ganzai, and is AAA graded. Pesticides are not utilized on this tea to allow green leafhoppers to bite the tea leaves, which causes the leaves to begin the healing process. The healing process creates the honey notes in this tea and the bites begin the oxidation process. Our Sansia Black is malty and sweet with a silky mouthfeel and full body. Caramel, honey, fresh baked bread, and chestnut notes are most noticeable, while vanilla, cherry, peppercorn, chocolate, oak, and floral notes are also present. We highly recommend gongfu brewing for best results. This tea can be made weaker (use less tea than recommended) for a more intense sweetness or made stronger (add more time than recommended) for an intense malt flavor.

Ingredients: Taiwanese Black Tea

So Long, and Thanks for All the Licorice
One of our customers, Sasha, challenged us to create a unique licorice masala chai custom blend. We ended up loving her blend so much, that we decided to offer it on our website.

With each sip, the licorice and spice notes seem to become stronger yet they are not overly aggressive. While this tea is fantastic plain, this blend shines with a little rice milk and sugar. For a short interview with the brains behind this tea, click HERE.
