Flight of New Teas! November 12th & 13th

This weekend we are introducing some exquisite teas at the tasting bar! Our flight this weekend welcomes our new Singbulli Oolong Darjeeling, Satisphur Broken Assam, & Guayusa.

In the Singbulli estate, located way up high in the hills of Darjeeling, comes an experiment tea that is rather unique! Light in body, Singbulli Oolong Darjeeling carries aroma and has toasty flavors with stoned fruit undertones.

Coming from a garden we rarely get to see (due to production mostly heading to Japan,) comes a dark tea that is rich in honey and malt flavor from Satisphur (northeastern Assam.) Satisphur Broken Assam is one of our newest teas, having a nice kick in briskness and body.

A traditional Ecuadorean beverage, Guayusa is like Yerba Mate, containing many antioxidants and levels of caffeine, though not technically a "tea." Recently introduced to the United States, this South American brew holds a nice grainy and vegetal flavor.
