Choice Organic Teas

Whole Leaf Lychee White This sublime blend offers a harmony of subtle flavors. We start with a delicate white tea, harvested in the lush foothills of South India. Then we blend in the ethereal aroma of lychee fruit and osmanthus flowers for a hint of sweetness. Whole Leaf Sweet Liquorice Mint This decadent blend comforts with a taste that’s both sweet and minty. Sweet liquorice root gives it a velvety richness that calms and soothes the senses. Peppermint and spearmint lend it a cool, refreshing taste and aroma. Whole Leaf Jade Green This healthful blend brews up a mellow yet lively cup. It’s an artful combination of fine green teas grown in the lush jungles of China and the sweeping hills of India — offering a light, almost fruity taste with a gentle finish. Chai Spice Black Tea Our distinctive organic chai favors the rich Assam black teas of the Brahmaputra Valley, and highly-prized cardamom. Make this tea strong, and temper it with milk and sweetener. Jasmine Green Lose yourself in the ethereal virtues of this Chinese treasure, produced only in August when jasmine flowers are in bloom. Our growers blend the finest green tea with freshly picked blossoms, which are removed after they’ve imparted their floral essence. The delicately sweet taste and aroma offer instant enlightenment. Earl Grey Tea Lift your spirits with this traditional tea that’s aromatic and full of flavor. We blend brisk Ceylon and Indian black teas from select mountain gardens with essential oil of Italian bergamot from Calabria. The medium body and clean flavor of this popular classic will have you feeling revived and ready to go. Green Moroccan Mint

Treat yourself and your guests to a cup of North African hospitality. This refreshing blend features flavorful green teas, peppermint from Washington State, spearmint and a hint of lemongrass, culminating in a bright cup that’s crisp, aromatic and flavorful — a most illuminating pick-me-up.

Ginger

Sit back and relax with this cooling classic, grown on fertile volcanic hillsides in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. From this prime mint-growing region of the world, we select the finest peppermint with an exquisitely aromatic, slightly spicy flavor. As a caffeine-free choice, it’s both calming and comforting.

Lemon Lavender Mint

Refresh yourself with this calming, caffeine-free cup featuring accents of sun-blessed lavender. Our sophisticated blend combines these blossoms with layers of mellow lemon and crisp mint for a fresh, yet soft-tasting tea that will elevate your sense of well-being

Peppermint Herb Tea

Sit back and relax with this cooling classic, grown on fertile volcanic hillsides in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. From this prime mint-growing region of the world, we select the finest peppermint with an exquisitely aromatic, slightly spicy flavor. As a caffeine-free choice, it’s both calming and comforting

English Breakfast Tea

Greet the day with this classic cup that’s sure to please — on its own, or with milk and sugar.

It’s a delicious way to awaken your senses.
