$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.

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.
Dundalk ~ Cú Chulainn$15.00 – $16.00
Minty and strong, this black tea blend is an excellent fortification for those who rise to the occasion and surpass expectations. Named for the boy Sétanta, fearless warrior and hero of Ireland.
A twist on the classic breakfast tea, the longer Cú Chulainn steeps, the more complex it will grow. As the black teas deepen and the tannins grow sharper, so too will the spice of chicory and the sweetness of mint. No aromatic oils. Just pure flavor, strengthening and bolstering for impending destiny.
Hand blended in small batches: three black teas, peppermint and chicory.
Hibiscus$15.00 – $16.00
Tart and tangy, hibiscus is a common flavor in Raspberry Tisanes and Red Zinger, partially due to its signature deep red color and partially due to its jammy, citrusy, bright flavor.
Hibiscus is much more than a tea flavor — it’s the flower of the Hindu goddess Kali, used for medicinal purposes in Chinese herbology, and worn as a sign of marital availability by Tahitian women. No flavors added ~ Just pure Hibiscus.
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.
