Oolong Tea$16.00 – $17.00
Oolong Tea, from the Chinese words for “Black Dragon,” is one of the rarest and costliest teas in the world. It is grown in mountainous areas, and treated with a labor-intensive, hand-crafted process.
Local Spicery’s Oolong tea, from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian, China, is harvested in the late spring, sun-wilted, bruised, twisted into strands, partially oxidized, and air-dried and fired to obtain the traditional rich, smoky flavor that causes many people to place Oolong between the spectrum of green and black tea.

Young Hyson Green Tea$11.00 – $12.00

Rose Petal$4.75 – $11.00
Defining a rose as anything more than as itself was beyond Gertrude Stein, and we will not try to embarrass ourselves in the attempt.
A Rose is a Rose. Roses & other flowers have been used as flavorings for millennia across many cultures. In teas and tisanes, roses have long been considered a cure-all. This history, along with its delicate floral flavor and lovely color, made it particularly popular during the Victorian era.
Avonlea ~ Anne Shirley$15.00 – $16.00
Tannic, sunny, and citrusy. Anne of Green Gables inspired this tea with her boundless energy and wholehearted optimism. Wonderful morning blend, pairing the delicate flavor of Darjeeling Black Tea with the sweetness of orange zest and roses.
Like Anne Shirley brightening the Cuthberts’ days with her enthusiasm and imagination, this summery tea blend pairs perfectly with sunrise, porches, and warm days. Drink hot or iced. No aromatic oils. Just sunny spices and black tea, for a wholesome start to the day. [Darjeeling, Assam, Roses, Orange Peel]
