The Scarlet Letter ~ Hester Prynne
$15.00 – $16.00
Berry-like, tart, and citrusy. Perfect for sipping at sunrise or sunset, with plenty of character.
The deep red color of this tisane matches its namesake, much as its strong, fruity- but not too sweet- flavor matches Hester herself. The Scarlet Letter has a certain wild palate, reminiscent of fresh raspberries. No caffeine ~ No aromatic oils. Just unrestrained flavor, to remind you of the deep heart of nature. [Hibiscus, Rosehips, Orange Peel, Ginger, Lemongrass]

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. Contains black tea, cassia, and orange peel.
Brobdingnag ~ Lemuel Gulliver$14.00 – $15.00
Strong, peaty, and robust. Our Irish Breakfast blend. With the smoky flavor playing under the tannins of the highest quality black teas, it’s a bold enough flavor even for the giants of Brobdingnag.
Assam black tea’s malty flavor is supported by Keemun Black & Darjeeling, creating a full-bodied “builder’s tea” with a hint of the bogs. Named for Dublin’s Jonathan Swift and his classic masterpiece, Gulliver’s Travels. No aromatic oils. Just pure flavor to enlarge your day.
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.
Hibiscus$6.75 – $21.60
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.
Rose Petal$5.00 – $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.
