Flight of Teas! February 26th and 27th!

For this coming weekend we will have a City themed weekend, featuring three blends which embody the spirit of each city: Tokyo, Paris and Florence.

Tokyo is a Bancha based green tea with toasted sesame seeds and caramel. This is probably the most understated tea and lightest of the three, a true delight!

Paris tea was created by Mike in homage to Paris, where Mike spent years and found his wife Brigitte there. So his ties to the City of Light are strong. This blend is reminiscent of one of the most popular blends in Paris.  A delightful black tea flavored with black currant, vanilla, caramel and hints of lemony Bergamot. Indulge in a cup of this tea, and instantly be transported to the city of love.

Florence is our delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Tea. Since we can't always be sipping hot cocoa while sitting in the Palazzo della Signoria, we can sip this decadent blend of chocolate and hazelnut and dream we are there.

    One of the longest and most dramatic trade routes of the ancient world, the Tea Horse Road carried a crucial exchange for 13 centuries between China and Tibet. Join Selena Ahmed, one of the collaborators on this fascinating book, as she discusses tea and the biocultural diversity in the regions of the Tea Horse Road.
