Flight of Teas! December 3rd & 4th!

As we transcend from fall to winter, saying goodbye to November and giving warm welcomes to December and the holiday season, we are serving a flight of roasted-flavor teas to celebrate. Reminiscent of Grandmother's fire place or roasting chestnuts, our flight of teas will warm any cold soul this season! We will be serving Hojicha, Lapsang #1, & Soba Roasted Buckwheat.

Being a favorite beverage in Japan, Hojicha is roasted tea stalks that create a smooth,  light-bodied brew. Hojicha's toasty flavors are complimenting of any palatte, and one could even consider this to replace their morning beverage.

An early season Lapsang Souchong, Lapsang #1 is one of our newest editions to our tea collection. The leaves themselves are smoked over pine fires (a traditional way of creating Lapsang Souchong,) and come from the Wuyi Mountains. A lighter smoky flavor than the typical Lapsang, #1 is an excellent black tea, especially for this time of year.

Soba Roasted Buckwheat is an herbal that goes against the grain (no pun intended!) With its lovely toasty flavor and hint of sweetness at the end of each sip, this caffeine-free beverage is not only unique but a flavor that many enjoy, like Brigitte Harney!
