Flight of Teas! September 15th & September 16th

This weekend, we are taking a moment to appreciate some classic tea & tea blends. Come by our tasting bar to sample Matcha iri Genmaicha, Satishpur Chunky, & Organic Rooibos.

Taking a classic and giving it a kick, Matcha iri Genmaicha is a tea blend of Japanese green tea, toasted rice, and Matcha powder. Providing a heavier body, the roasted flavor compliments the vegetal bite. This tea is an excellent way to get your daily dose of Matcha without the whisk!

In comparison to our other Assams, even the Satishpur Broken, this black tea is considered lighter in brew and body. Satishpur Chunky has a malty aroma and slight astringency, but is the perfect match for the Assam-tea drinker. It takes milk well, but isn't as overwhelming as other Assams can be.

Rooibos, translating into "Red Bush," comes from Africa. Naturally decaffeinated, this red tea can appeal to the tea drinker who prefers less caffeine, whether it is at night or during the afternoon. Rooibos carries health properties, brewing a red color with slightly sweet flavors. It is the base tea for many of our Herbal Blends, including Herbal Hot Cinnamon and African Autumn.
