Flight of Teas! October 15th & 16th

Hello tea drinkers! This weekend our tasting bar is getting a toasted twist! We are featuring a flight of teas that have a common toasty, smoky flavor: Hojicha, Gunpowder Green, and our new Lapsang #1.

A favorite beverage in Japan, Hojicha is a good alternative to your morning routine drink! Its roasted tea stalks leave an aromatic roasted flavor along with a fulfilling taste.

Gunpowder Green comes from the Zhejiang Province in China. The leaves are rolled into balls that are leaden in color, looking just like gun pellets! Having a slight smoky flavor, Gunpowder Green is an enjoyable tea, especially this time of year!

One of our newer teas, Lapsang #1, is an early season Lapsang Souchong that has a sweeter taste than the original. It is still smoked in the traditional way over pine fires in the Wuyi Mountains, and is a definite must have for tea lovers!
