Flight of Teas! March 26th and 27th!

This weekend we are presenting staff favorites. Our employee, Will, has chosen his favorite green, oolong and a brand new black tea to share with all of you!

Tropical Green, a Hand-blended green tea with marvelous tropical notes - pineapple is the dominant flavor, and that's why we love it. Discover this fresh twist on traditional greens. Bancha is the base of this tea.  It is delicious and does not carry the same vegetal and all-encompassing green-like qualities that the Sencha does, which allows us to add these delicious flavors to it.

Dong Ding is a famous tea from Taiwan. Its buttery, floral and gardenia-like disposition can evoke a sense of tranquility. This is one of Taiwan’s highest mountain teas. The tea plants must battle cold and frequent mists (sometimes even snow prompting the name "Frozen Peaks.")  This makes a haunting brew with echoes of honey and cream which linger on your taste buds.

NEW!  Golden Snail is a terrific Chinese black tea from the Hubei Province.  It has curls of dark and gold tea, thus reminding one of snails. We can assure you that no snails are used or hurt with this tea. The dark cocoa and sweet flavors bring to mind chocolate. Golden Snail is already a hit, so we invite you to try this newcomer to the Harney line-up.
