They’re finally here. We’re introducing four brand new bespoke tea blends for 2013… and we kind of think we’ve outdone ourselves this time! We’ve spent months testing– and tasting– and toasting new flavour combinations, and we’re bringing you the very best! Here’s the line-up:
MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S TEA
Steeped in moonlight. And mischief. Our ethereal blend of rooibos tea, passionfruit nectar, ripe papaya, apple, and Meyer lemon is a delightfully sweet dream! Lovers, to bed; ‘tis almost fairy time.
BLUE RIBBON BUTTER COOKIE
We stole the cookies from the cookie jar. This bake-shop blend of amaretti biscuits, almonds, coconut, cardamom, pomegranate and premium Ceylon black is a rich & aromatic all-in-one treat. Serve it with a touch of milk or cream for an easy approach to high tea… you’re one smart cookie.
TEA OF GOOD FORTUNE
Dark cocoa, bright future. Your stars are aligned with our dusky and delicious blend of Medjoul dates, cocoa nibs, vanilla bean pieces, and Ceylon black tea. Our prediction? You will soon meet a superior cup of tea.
JET-SET BANANA CITRUS
5-star, all-inclusive. Take a trip to exotic locales with our tropical medley of banana, orange peel, lemon essence, coconut, and high-grown Ceylon black. Now that’s first class.
If you’d like to know a little more on the backstory of these new blends, check out this great article from Tea and Scandal Canada for a glowing review, and some dynamite pairing suggestions:
Tempted? Want to try?? We’ll be sampling the new blends all month in-store — so come by for a visit and a complimentary cup. As part of our launch celebration, we’re also unveiling our new limited edition tea caddy… a centuries-old traditional Chinese design updated in a shiny silver finish. Hello beautiful!
