Gunpowder Green Tea
$15.00 – $16.00
Named for its resemblance to gunpowder, this tea is withered, steamed and rolled before being dried. Gunpowder Green Tea was easier to transport without damaging the tea leaves, making it popular among sailors and colonists.
Gunpowder Green Tea dates back to the Tang Dynasty in China (618-907). It is commonly found as the base for the traditional North American mint tea found at social gatherings. No flavors added ~ Just pure Gunpowder Green Tea.
Manor House ~ Pip$15.00 – $16.00
A cinnamon black tea, all sweetness and spice, blended to satisfy. The second name Dickens assigns to the Manor House is Satis- “which is Greek, or Latin, or Hebrew, or all three—or all one to me—for enough.” So is this tea.
The flavors of Dickensian London are present in this tea blend, with Pip’s cinnamon sweet hopefulness and citrus-bright positivity mingled with the tannic disappointments that galvanize him into further action each chapter. No aromatic oils. Just spices and tea, to fuel your climb.
Hand blended in small batches: cinnamon, two black teas and orange peel.
Woolton ~ Ernest Worthington$12.00 – $13.00
Mellow, minty and bright. Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s whimsical depictions of the English countryside, it’s the perfect tisane for a post-meal treat.
Named for Ernest Worthington’s estate, Woolton is zesty enough for the adventure of early afternoon and light enough for the waning of late evening. Contains only dry herbs and spices, milled in small batches. No caffeine ~ No aromatic oils. Just earnest flavor to offer a reprieve.
Hand blended in small batches: chamomile, mint, and lemon verbena.
Dörfli ~ Heidi$15.00 – $16.00
Mellow, fresh, and floral. A hint of ginger warms the palate, like an idyllic mountain day in a fragrant field of wildflowers. Beautifully bright as a hot afternoon beverage, sweetly crisp as an iced tea in the summer.
A soft flavor that cools as the mint hits, this tisane was named for Johanna Spyri’s beloved novel and encapsulates the fresh feeling of the Swiss Alps. No caffeine ~ No aromatic oils. Just clean, fresh flavor to soothe the soul.
Hand blended in small batches with: green rooibos, ginger, lavender, spearmint, and heather.
Rooibos, Red$15.00 – $16.00
Sweet, woodsy, and mellow. An herbal substitute for black tea, or just a comfortable afternoon companion.
In 18th century South Africa, Green Rooibos was harvested in the mountains & brought home on donkeys. The Dutch fermented it in the style of Chinese black teas, in order to use it as a substitute for the expensive to import beverage. Red Rooibos was first created with fermentation in 1904. No caffeine ~ No flavors added. Just the fermented flavor of the South African mountains.

Our Assam Tea is hand harvested in May and June to allow the tea leaves to develop golden-colored tips that produce a sweeter, spicy and malty flavor. No aromatic oils. Just pure Assam Black Tea.
