This tea brews to a deep red liquor bursting with tart thirst-quenching goodness, a great caffeine-free tea to sip in the cold months. Currants, cranberries, blueberries, and orange peel sing with festive sweetness while the nuttiness of rooibos rounds out the finish, creating balance. Mango and passion fruit further excite the palate, making this tea a juicy punch of flavor.
This caffeine-free herbal tea is a thirst-quenching delight when brewed cold and equally refreshing when brewed hot.
It is rich in peppermint and turmeric, making this a great tea to sip on after a summer BBQ feast. Savory fennel and a touch of black pepper brighten the palate and counter this tea's natural sweetness.
Try it iced as a delightfully different way to hydrate, or serve it hot to settle the tummy.
The fragrance of violets is magical and romantic, but rarely found in a tea. Violet Black is a very floral and sweet offering from one of our favorite suppliers of flavored teas.
It produces a deep amber cup that is wonderfully fragrant and floral, and tastes like something out of a secret garden.
Rich and comforting, this is a thoroughly enjoyable treat!

Snow Leopard Black
This exquisite black tea is produced with the finest hand-picked leaves and buds. While prepared with similar perfection to many other Nepalese artisan teas, what makes Snow Leopard different is a contained oxidation process that uses available oxygen within the leaf instead of the open air.
The result is a smooth and balanced tea with a darker reddish infusion, a sweet character, and notes of red wine.

Imperial Grade Lapsang Souchong
Imperial Grade Lapsang Souchong is a high grade version of the famous Chinese smoked black tea. Lapsang Souchong is made by withering tea leaves over open fires of fresh pine logs, creating a distinctive smoky flavor.
This particular Lapsang uses a high grade base tea and was given a series of "lighter" pine scentings, thus building its flavor. The result is smoother, cleaner aroma and flavor. It is smoky, robust and a little biscuity.
Compared to our other Lapsang Souchong, this lot is much more balanced, less smokier, and a little sweeter.
