Flight of Teas! July 14th & July 15th

This weekend, our tasting bar is going to be featuring a flight of teas that celebrity chef, Marcus Samuelsson and Harney & Sons have created. The line of teas is named Ambessa, which in Ethiopian means "lion," to represent the pride and independence of the people of Ethiopia, and also represents Samuelsson's journeys around the world. Come by our shop this weekend to sample and enjoy Safari Breakfast, Choco Nut, & The Earl of Harlem.

Safari Breakfast is a blend of estate-grown African black teas. Carrying a rich aroma, this black tea is vibrant and full of life, embodying the chef's African roots.

Samuelsson reflects on his culinary awakening in Switzerland with this dessert tea blend Choco Nuts. Its base being an aromatic black tea, we have blended hints of dark chocolate, caramel, and peanuts. This tea can be enjoyed any afternoon or can be paired wonderfully with the perfect sweet treat.

The Earl of Harlem is a new take on a classic blend. This black tea holds bergamot notes of a familiar Earl Grey, but also a kiss of floral and undertones of smokiness. Without a doubt, this black tea blend doesn't only taste like home to Samuelsson, but will make any classic tea drinker's taste buds awaken!
