USA Tea of the Month - July, August, September, October

Posted by Nicole Schwartz on

Well with transitioning to a new web host I fell behind on telling you about our teas of the month!

 

July

Lord Petersham
(black tea from The Devotea Core Collection)

A complex blend of teas named after the Edwardian Lord who had a different tea canister and tea for every day of the year. Breakfast tea for late risers.

Ti Kwan Yin
“Goddess of Mercy”
(featured oolong)

Chinese oolong with an enticing aroma and unforgettable taste. You'll get several infusions with every cup.This is one of the great Classic Chinese oolongs.

Ginger Orange
(featured tisane)

A soothing all-herbal blend of ginger, orange peel and lemongrass. Caffeine-free. This herbal infusion is perfect for evening or when you need pampering.

You can't over brew it. Drink hot or cold, or infuse this tisane into cream to make an incredible ice cream!

Nilgiri Craigmore
(black tea from Lochan Tea)

An allround black tea for everyday drinking. It’s got all the characteristics of a good black tea, well proportioned and steeps strong without bitterness. Particularly suited to English/Irish tea tastes.

August

1001 Nights
(green tea from The Devotea Core Collection)

1001 Nights is a great traditional Arabian style mint and green tea blend, with a twist of lemon provided by organic lemongrass and local lemon myrtle.

Our summertime favorite and best seller for iced tea fans. Add some rum if you are so inclined.

Bourbon Black Tea
(featured black tea)

Enjoy the flavors and aromas of Kentucky's best-known beverage infused into a custom blend of handpicked Chinese and Indian teas. Make mine a double!

Relax
(featured tisane)

Inspired by a eucalyptus peppermint soap I picked up at a bath and beauty store that was designed to help reduce stress. I don’t know if I believe them but it certainly smelled delicious!

Darjeeling Giddephar
(black tea from Lochan Tea)

A 2nd Flush 2013 single estate tea,from the Giddephar estate in Darjeeling India, presented for your enjoyment.

It’s a beautiful full-flavoured Darjeeling. The second flush of 2013 is rich in taste and has a smooth, long-lasting aftertaste with typical Darjeeling suggestions of oolong.

September

2nd Flush 212 Darjeeling Black Tea from the Makaibari Estate
(black tea from Lochan Tea)

A lovely full-flavored black tea, as traditional to the darjeeling region it has a nice crisp muscatel flavor and is almost vegetal suggesting more of oolong than a black tea.

Matcha Infused Genmaicha
(green tea from Aiya)

Matcha Infused Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese Sencha blended with toasted brown rice and premium Matcha green tea. The refreshing flavor of Sencha combined with the nutty flavor of toasted brown rice, plus the resilient color and mild sweetness of Matcha make this tea distinctly delightful.
 
Persian Princess
(The Devotea core collection black tea)

A strong black tea designed to be drunk in the old-fashioned Persian court manner, with a lump of sugar held between the teeth and the tea sipped over it. A great heart-starter kind of tea. Start your day with a Princess.

Full-bodied and feisty! Designed to be drunk with a sugar cube between your teeth. Almost savory without sugar. We recommend as little (including none) or as much sugar and milk as you would like.

Honeybush
(tisane from Teas Etc.)

Honeybush has a honey, nectar-like aroma with a balanced, natural flavor. Sweeter than its close cousin Rooibos, Honeybush is great hot or iced and is refreshingly simple.

October

Doke Diamond Green - green tea from Lochan Tea

A green tea with plenty of flavour. Different to Chinese green teas in mouthfeel and aroma. Has a slight hint of sour cherry, but with a real freshness. This tea offers a real sense of occasion.

Juicy Peach - white tea from teas etc

I decided to celebrate the warm days with this light and sweet blend. Let’s enjoy the nice days while they are here and quickly fading into fall leaves here in the Northeast.

Lady Devotea - black tea from The Devotea core collection

A delightful scented afternoon tea. Genuine Bergamot, teamed with dried orange and lavender. Truly an inspiring brew to accompany high tea.

Oranges and Bergamot virtually assault one’s nose and palate, with lavender lurking about.

Pumpkin Spice Honeybush - tisane, limited blend

While I am enjoying the end of the nice warm weather, I am happy to celebrate Halloween, and pumpkins (best in pie form). I hope you also enjoy this caffeine-free pumpkin spice - my grandmother enjoyed helping me create it!
