When I was younger and traveling throughout India, I fell in love with Chai.  One question I consistently asked people was, “What is the origin of masala chai?” The overwhelming response to my informal survey was that it was “grandmother’s chai.” (“Nani Chai”).

Grandmother, the traditional caretaker of the household, would brew a blend of plant roots, bark and seeds if a family member became ill or as a tonic to stay healthy through the changing seasons. In fact, many of the ingredients now found in a classic cup of masala chai are useful for treating colds, flu, stomach ailments, digestive problems, lung issues and other common maladies. These family recipes were handed down from mother to daughter to granddaughters over generations spanning hundreds of years.

One generally held belief (or chai conspiracy theory) that was heard repeatedly during our travels is that the British, knowing tea’s addictive properties and seeing an enormous new local market, at first dispensed tea at no cost to the Indian population. This marketing plan paid off, as India became among the world’s largest consumer and producer of tea. Eventually tea, with its energy-giving medicine, made its way into Grandma’s spice decoctions. Add some milk and sugar, originating from both the Indian Ayurvedic and British teatime traditions, and masala chai was born. There is, of course, no way to sub- stantiate this chai creation story, but it seems plausible to us.

Chai is such an integral part of Indian culture, I think any Indian who scrutinizes the Westerner’s recent chai craze might wonder, “What took you so long?” As a foolish Western chai lover, I offer my humble thanks to the long line of ‘Nani’ on the other side of the world who gave us the gift of masala chai.

Our Chai is based on one ‘Nani’s’ recipe, passed down from generation to generation to your cup.

The taste is heavenly – ginger and cardamom intermingle with cinnamon, cloves and hints of black pepper. The full-bodied cup is rounded out with floral notes that tempt the taste buds and will have you crying out for more. Brew a pot today and raise a cup to all of the Grandmothers out there.

This exquisite tea hails from one of the most renowned tea estates in Darjeeling, India. The Seeyok estate was established in 1869 in the Darjeeling hills bordering Nepal. This high altitude tea is grown on steep picturesque slopes up to 4000 ft, surrounded by fresh air and pure mountain spring water. Our select high grown tea is hand picked, artisan processed, and provides a bright and brisk cup much lighter than other black teas because of its high altitude. This champagne of teas is a proprietary blend of 2nd autumnal flush teas, and steeps a pink, light amber color, with a fresh floral and apple-like character and a slightly astringent finish. It is rare to experience a pure 100% Darjeeling outside of India. This is your passport to experience this rare and golden opportunity of a truly prized luxury.

Introducing this very unique tea, Purple Leaf Tea grown in Kenya.  This is an exciting, brand new category of tea.  The reason it is called Purple Leaf Tea is because purple leaves naturally grow this colour on the tea bush.  This is not a GMO plant, it is a rare and natural genetic mutation in the leaf pigmentation which Kenyan farmers have adopted.  Purple tea contains the same super-antioxidant property that blueberries have (anthocyanin). It is also a colour changing tea – squeeze a couple of drops of lemon into your cup and watch the purple colour intensify!  Magic or science?  You decide.

Tasting Notes: Malty full-bodied character with bright flavour notes and hints of cask oakiness. A bracing Highlander’s cup of tea!

Ingredients: Black tea.

Origin: India / China / Kenya

Region: Assam, Nilgiri / Anhui / Nandi, Kericho

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 212 F / 100 C

Steep Time: 3-6 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

The primary sociological structure in old Scotland was the ‘clan’. The roots of the system are very ancient, stretching back into Scotland’s Celtic past. The country had been occupied by many different peoples – Britons, Romans, Angles and Vikings – but two races came to dominate: the Picts in the north and east who divided their territory into 7 petty kingdoms and in the west it was the Scots. Originating as an Irish tribe, the Scots migrated from Ulster in the 6th century. The kingdoms of the Scots and the Picts were eventually united by Kenneth MacAlpin in the mid 800’s.
These people were organized along tribal lines, which eventually became known as clans. One of the downfalls of the clans was the propensity to feud. Some disputes simmered for centuries such as the feud between the MacDonalds and Stewarts, which began at Culloden in 1314, finally being settled in the 1600’s. Highlanders guarded their traditions fiercely and were well known for their loyally robust character.
This tea is like a proper Highlander – robust, malty (not unlike a good Scotch) and full of life and vigour. Highlanders liked their tea very strong and insisted on hints of cask oak to remind them of their clan’s own special elixir – single malt Scotch. This blend consists of 2nd Flush Assam tea (thick, robust with delicious hints of malt); January production South Indian tea (high mountain grown that has wonderful flavour notes which accentuate the robust Assam); Keemun Panda #1 which has a delicious winy character further enhancing the stout malty character of the blend and finally a Chingwo County Orange Pekoe which gives the distinct oaky character. This tea is especially delicious with milk, which further lends a malty character to the tea and highlights the brightness of the premium tea, which has hints of a red colour.

Nepali Golden Black 1+1

Nepali Golden Black 1+1 Image

Tasting notes: This tea has lovely hints of muscatel and good strength, similar to an excellent Darjeeling.

Ingredients: Fair trade black tea

Origin: Nepal

Region: Ilam

Caffeine Content: medium

Water Temperature: 206ºF / 97ºC

Steep Time: 3-6 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1.5 tsp / 8oz

An organic black tea from Nepal’s first co-operatively owned factory.  The term “golden” refers to the high number of buds used to make this rare black tea (one bud to one following leaf to be exact – 1+1).  Harvested in the autumn, it carries notes of chocolate and cherries and is nearly impossible to over steep.

Ilam estate has a Darjeeling-like character with good muscatel flavour. Some may ask: ‘What is the muscatel flavour?’ When you taste this tea you will experience an almost perfume like character that some tea drinkers call ‘Chanel like’: others call the character ‘slightly over-fired’ or oaky. The muscatel flavour is the natural taste of the tea – becoming more pronounced during April (light tasting with astringency and intense flavour) and June (intense flavour with more body). The flavour is on account of the altitude of the tea estate, the soil conditions in the Himalayas the weather patterns, temperature, the originating species of the bush (Chinese genus as opposed to the Indian genus) and fermenting techniques; it has nothing to do with the tea being over-fired (over-fired is a description of poor manufacturing techniques). The leaf appearance is very typical of a well-produced high mountain grown Nepalese tea. It appears mottled with brownish and greenish leaf – almost camouflage-like. This appearance is caused the myriad of different mother bushes, the older age of the bushes and the subsequent fact that the leaves ferment differently.
The area where Ilam is produced is high in the Himalayan Mountains. The slopes where the tea is produced are extremely steep which makes it very difficult for the tea pickers to go about their work. At Ilam one is surrounded by the high snow covered peaks of the world’s highest mountains. It is truly a very scenic area. The quality of this tea befits the tremendous efforts undertaken to produce the tea and the beautiful surroundings.

Caffeine Content: Low

Water Temperature: 206 F / 97 C

Steep Time: 3-6 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1.5 tsp / 8oz

We are proud to have this exciting new tea in our shop.  This tea has reinvented a centuries old tradition from Ethopia by developing a new recipe for processing Coffee Leaf Tea.  Not only is it delicious and very good for you (delivering antioxidants like mangiferin and cholorogenic acids) it also great for the environment.

Coffee farms are only profitable during the bean harvest season, which is only 3-4 months long. 80-90% of the workers are seasonal and seek work elsewhere during the off-season, creating a very volatile economy.  By developing Coffee Leaf tea workers in Nicaragua can now find employment year round.

Also, the tea is processed using hydro-electric power that’s generated on-site thanks to a natural spring right by the facility where the leaves are processed by hand.

Country of Origin: China

Region: Yunnan Province

Water Temperature: 206ºF / 97ºC

Ying Ming Yunnan is grown at very high elevations over 3500 to 5000ft above sea level. This creates one of the most perfect environments for growing tea.

Ying Ming Yunnan has a wonderful full bodied flavour if somewhat a slightly sweet taste. This excellent fullness is attributed to many factors, however not least the fact that Ying Ming is only produced during March and April. This is when the mountain air is moist and cool. This Orthodox Flowery Tippy Orange Pekoe (FTOP) is delicious at any time of day and will leave you feeling alert, refreshed and wonderfully inspired.

This tea is a wonderful example of a lively and slightly different Yunnan tea.

Aniseed, the wonderfully savoury spice that flavours Dutch liquorice has been used to enhance the foods of various cultures for at least 4000 years. So how did the spice make its way to Amsterdam and into the liquorice? During the 17th Century, Amsterdam became one of the wealthiest cities in the world. The city’s vast wealth was based almost entirely on foreign trade with business in spice comprising a large part of that trade. Naturally, spices from around the world made their way into the kitchens and recipes of the city’s chefs. Eventually, aniseed was combined with liquorice root to create the tasty confection that is now as synonymous with Holland as wooden shoes – Dutch Liquorice.  Brew a pot of this delicious tea today and savour the exotic spice of Amsterdam. Sweet, astringent and spicy, Amsterdam liquorice is one of our more uniquely flavoured black teas.

Ingredients: Fair trade black tea.

Origin: Assam, North-East India

Water Temperature: 212 F / 100 C

Steep Time: 3-6 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

The strongest of Indian teas, this whole leaf black comes from India’s first tea region.

Teas that are produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides generally have a lower yield per acre and quite often quality can suffer compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a very high level – such is the case with this tea! This tea is a classic top quality Assam, very full bodied and tending ‘juicy’. Quite often milk is used to tone down the strength of the tea since milk gives the tea a smoothness that is very pleasant and highlights the malty notes.
Historically the Assam tea bush is a subgenus of Camellia Sinensis. This variety was found growing wild in the Assam province of northeast India in the 1823, when the British East India Company was studying a proposal to grow tea in India. The idea was turned down for fears that India’s production might endanger their China tea monopoly. Ten years later conditions had changed. The company’s opium trafficking had angered the Chinese government and the British Crown overrode the objections of the East India Company and backed a project to grow tea in India. By 1837 it was successfully cultivated in Assam and in May 1838 a few chests were shipped to London (true organic tea – grown before the advent of artificial fertilizers and herbicides). The first consignment of 8 chests of Assam tea was auctioned off in 1839 heralding the advent of Indian Tea in the world markets. Tea continues to play an important political role in India’s development. Not only do millions of people gather their main source of family income from the tea business, but in 1946 Mahatma Ghandi in his non-violent struggle for Independence is known to have taken tea to King George-V at Buckingham Palace for their historic discussion on Indian Independence.

Origin:  Sri Lanka, China, Spain, Italy

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 206 F / 97 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

This tea is blended in honour of The Baroness of Grey, who lived sometime in the 16th or 17th century and was married to a man who was a Ship’s Captain in the Royal Navy. As the story goes, his ship never returned from a trading voyage to China. Refusing to believe that her husband would never return the Baroness would walk to the port lands every morning to greet each ship hoping for news of her husband. Sadly, she continued this practice until the day she died. In honour of the loyal Baroness Grey, we blended this tea with the traditional bergamot and the addition of lemon to represent the bitter tears shed over her beloved. The dried lemon peels add an additional tartness to the citrus character of the tea making it a fantastic alternative to traditional Earl Grey.

Tasting Notes: A must for the avid Earl Grey tea drinker! Our flavourful Earl Grey mellowed with a delicious creamy taste. An excellent all day tea with a superb finish.

Ingredients: Black tea, Cornflower petals, Natural vanilla.

Origin: Sri Lanka

Region: Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula or Uva districts

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature:  206 F / 97 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

Cream Earl Grey has a taste that’s smooth with vanilla overtones that stand out above the premium bergamot flavour – the signature taste of Earl Grey. This is a tea that would complement a royal meal or any another aristocratic occasion for that matter! One has to assume that Charles Grey himself (1764-1845) would have strongly approved of this delicacy.

What type of tea do we use, how do we flavour the tea and why do we use natural flavours?
First… Our suppliers only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka – Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavourful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavour notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery colour and, most importantly – perfect for use as the base tea of our flavoured teas. (Our Suppliers have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for their flavoured teas, but none of these teas made the grade.) Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This ‘dual peak period’ allow them to buy the best for our flavoured tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness.
Second… They use flavouring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat.
Third… We specify natural flavours. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavours do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavoured tea is to use overpowering artificial flavours, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavours do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavours tend to be somewhat ‘soft‘ and the flavours slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavoured teas.

Traditionally Earl Grey was a blend of Chinese and Indian teas scented with oil from the citrus bergamot fruit – a sort of orange. Stories about the origins of Earl Grey are numerous. One such tale tells how a British diplomat on a mission to China saved the life of a Mandarin. As a gift of gratitude, the diplomat was given the recipe for this flavoured tea. Upon his return to Britain, the diplomat presented the tea to the Prime Minister of the day, Earl Grey. Another story says it was the Prime Minister himself who saved the Mandarin. In any event it was the Prime Minister of England (1830-1834) Earl Grey who made this tea fashionable.

Origin: Taiwan

Region: Nantou County

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 212 F / 100 C

Steep time: 3-6 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

It has been said that “The beauty of Taiwan tea resides in the hard-working spirit of past generations to pioneer the golden age of Taiwan tea.”  Truer words regarding this island nation’s tea industry could not have been spoken. Through all of Taiwan’s political ups and downs during the past couple of centuries, the art of tea has prevailed producing some of the world’s finest cups. Although these days Taiwan is often associated with semi-fermented Oolongs, the industry there actually began with the development of black tea – teas such as this outstanding Lapsang. Local teas originated from two varieties of wild growing plants, their primary difference being the colour of their sprouts. This tea, known as Taiwan Mountain tea had either greenish tending light purple sprouts or purple-red tending fuchsia sprouts. Initially it was thought that neither of these teas were commercially viable. That all changed however when improvements were made to a varietal sub-categorized as Taiwan Tea No. 18 making it suitable for black tea production.
It is the belief that due to the exceptional appearance of the leaf, Kangaroo Lapsang is probably produced from plants stemming from this original Tea No. 18. Production begins by withering freshly picked tea over pine and oak fires, pan-firing, and then rolling the leaf by hand. Once rolled, leaves are pressed into wooden barrels, covered with cloth, and allowed to ferment. Next, the leaves are re-rolled into tight strips and placed in bamboo baskets, which are hung over burning pine boughs. As they dry, the leaves further develop their rich smoky flavour. Because of the quality of the fresh leaf used to produce Kangaroo Lapsang, the resulting tea is one of the worlds finest. The flavour is robust, deep, and highly aromatic, filling the mouth with distinctive smoky pine notes. The flavour leads us to another quote, “The beauty of Taiwan tea resides in the flavour, the clearness of its colouring, the purity of its taste, and the elegance of its aroma.” That being the case, this tea is a true example of the beauty of Taiwan tea. (As for the odd name – the true origins have been lost to the mists of time – although legend has it that a ship carrying Kangaroos to the Boston Zoo from Australia almost 200 years ago capsized off the coast of Taiwan, then known as Formosa. The ancient stories maintain that the kangaroos lived in peace amongst the tea plants for many years!)

Chunmee Special Grade 1 Image

Tasting Notes: Full bodied, delicate flavour with toasty notes. Mellow smokiness lending to sweet tobacco or plum character.

Ingredients: Luxury green tea

Origin: China

Region: Jiangxi Province

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 185 F / 85 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

The shape of the leaves is reminiscent of an eyebrow, hence the word “mee or mei” which means eyebrow.  Chunmee translated is “Precious Eyebrow”. The leaves are hand-rolled in a traditional fashion and pan-fired requiring great skill and the resulting tea is considered a work of art. Patience, great hand coordination, temperature control and timing achieve a fine jade colour leaf and mellow yellowish brew.
This tea reminds us of the “Tea Emperor” Song which notes “ …it promotes such serenity that mundane cares fall away.” Truly a blessing. This same emperor had this to say about tea plucking: ‘‘Harvesting the leaves should begin well before daybreak and stop shortly after. Picking must be done with the fingernails, not with the fingers, lest the freshness and taste be contaminated… Leaves of whitish colour shaped like sparrows’ tongues or grains of corn are best. One leaf per shoot is ideal; two leaves per shoot next best, if there are more, the product will be inferior’’.

Tasting Notes: Hibiscus and pomegranate were made for each other! Tart with floral highlights – a cleansing and highly refreshing cup.

Ingredients: Luxury green tea, natural dried hibiscus, natural pomegranate.

Origin: Sri Lanka

Region: Uva

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 185 F / 85 C

Steep time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1.5 tsp / 8oz

Our Green Tea blend is a tart combination of pomegranate and hibiscus. It is believed that the first instance of mixing dried hibiscus petals and pomegranate took place on Easter Island by Polynesian migrants. When pomegranate reached the island, the natives were intrigued, and soon after, the pomegranate juice was blended with the plentiful hibiscus petals. This delicious naturally flavoured tea is created using a Hunan Sencha style green tea. The cup offers a sweet, bright nose, with supple notes of honey, herbs and berries offset by grassy notes of moss from the green tea and a smooth palate cleanser of a finish. Put simply – a fabulous cup worthy of a tall-tale or two of its own.
A little about our base tea:
This tea is based on a Sencha style green tea from Hunan. Interestingly, both green and black teas can be produced from the same bushes. During manufacture, the freshly plucked leaves are immediately steamed and then bruised by hand. Next the leaf is pan-fired, a process that imparts a distinctive glossy look and feel, and dried. Unscented Senchas typically have dark green, needle shaped leaves and produce a pale green to yellow, very bright and smooth cup with a sweetish, honey like finish.

Tasting Notes: Smooth with delicate and pleasing flavour and a heavenly jasmine character.

Ingredients: Luxury green tea, Jasmine petals

Origin: China

Region: Fujian Province

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 1805F / 85 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving Size: 1 tsp/8oz

Jasmine tea is one of the most pleasant tasting green teas available on the market. On the nose the dry tea has a floral bouquet, which literally causes your senses to come alive with pleasant thoughts. The flavour is enhanced with the addition of jasmine blossoms which give the tea a visual appeal few other teas are capable of copying.
There are many different grades of jasmine tea. This particular grade is the first grade below the exotic jasmines. It has all the flavour, aroma and good green tea qualities but not the exorbitant price. In China they declare this jasmine tea as ‘Jasmine #1’.
The production of jasmine tea is quite interesting. It is important to begin with high quality green tea – tea that has been produced between the middle of March and the middle of May. Equally important for jasmine tea are fine jasmine blossoms – flowers that bloom between the 1st of May and the end of May (these have the most intense aroma). Traditionally layers of jasmine blossoms were placed between fine green tea. In time the scent of the jasmine permeated the tea. Today, hot air is passed through the jasmine blossoms and then filtered through the tea so that the blossoms can be used more than once. The exhausted blossoms are then used to decorate the tea. Produced in both China and Taiwan, jasmine tea yields a cup with all the concentrated heady bouquet of a garden in bloom.

Jasmine Golden Dragon

Jasmine Golden Dragon Image
Tasting Notes: Exquisite, abundant Jasmine character on a seasonal green tea. This Jasmine flavour is only possible with midnight May flowers. Ingredients:  Luxury organic green tea Origin: China Region: Jiangxi Province Caffeine Content: Medium Water Temperature: 185 F / 85F Steep Time: 3-5 minutes Suggested Serving Size: 1 tsp/8oz This tea is a particularly good organic jasmine – hence the moniker Gold Dragon, (gold means wealth, prosperity, money and dragon means long life and strength).  The jasmine tree comes into bloom only during May and June.  The blossom only lasts for about 12 hours and only comes out at night after the sun goes down.  About half way through the night the fragrance is at it’s peak and it is at this time the blossoms need to be picked and layer into the tea. By the morning most of the fragrance has disappeared from the blossom, but if the tea maker has done his job correctly, this heavenly scent has been transferred to the tea and captured in time.  This process is carried out on 5 successive evenings to impart the superior flavour of specially selected tea and jasmine flowers. In China during the Sung Dynasty (960 to 1127) tea drinking rose to an art form.  The harvesting of tea became closely regulated.  Drum and cymbal signals were used to coordinate the tea pickers during chilly dark pre-dawn hours.  The tea pickers (always young virgins) received special training and even wore identification labels on the clothing so that tea thieves could be readily identified if they entered the estates.  The girls were required to keep fingernails at a precise length, since nails, never the finger, were used to pluck the highest quality tea leaves.  The fresh picked leaves were graded into classes and processed.  The choice grade was delivered as tribute tea for the Emperor, while the rest was traded and sold by the regional government.  A handful of tea of the choicest grade could be worth as much as 3 ounces of gold – virtually a lifetime of earnings for the common man.

Caffeine Content: Low

Water Temperature: 185 F / 85 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

The city of Uji, the namesake of this wonderfully light Hojicha, is one of Japan’s most ancient places. The city is home to the Byodoin, recognized by UNESCO as the world’s oldest wooden structure. It was built in 1053 and amazingly, still stands. The region has been home to tea gardens and tea pickers for centuries and is to this day recognized as one of Japan’s foremost green tea growing regions.

Tagami Kikusha, a Japanese Poet, accomplished in the tea ceremony, lived during those ancient times and wrote about life in the area while living in another of Uji’s famous buildings, the Manpuku Temple.

one step outside

the temple gate, its Japan —

a tea-picker’s song

The short poem captures the warm feelings of joy felt by the pickers as they worked in the tea gardens – tea was considered a sacred and divine gift by the ancient Japanese.
One of the teas that helped make the region famous is Hojicha.  Hojicha, a specially roasted green tea, may seem exotic to Westerners but in Japan it is one of country’s most commonly enjoyed beverages. Owing to its low caffeine content – the roasting process removes much of the caffeine – Hojicha is often served to accompany meals.  It is also commonly served to children and patients in hospitals.
The tea is produced using a 3rd flush Bancha leaf known in Japanese as Sanbancha.  Our offering here is plucked exclusively at Yamarokusangyou, one of Uji’s top gardens.  The plucked leaves are produced in a style similar to that of Sencha – the leaves are steamed and dried.  Next the dried leaf is roasted over a low heat – the low roasting temperature imparts a sweet taste and nice fresh aroma (Hojicha that has been roasted at too high a temperature loses much of its sweetness).  This roasting process results in a tea with a reddish colour and light cup with a very unique flavour.  Try pairing our Hojicha with Asian themed meals and notice how well it cleanses the palate.

Tasting Notes: Savory, Woodsy, Round

Ingredients: Organic Green Tea

Origin: China

Region: Zhejiang

Caffeine Content: Medium

Temperature: 180-185 F degrees

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp/8oz

Tender, young organic fair trade green tea leaves, rolled into small spheres resembling gunpowder, produce a grassy infusion with a slightly smoky flavour. A deeply renewing pick-me-up any time of day.

This particular tea comes from a tea estate west of Hangzhou in the hill country of Zhejiang province. The green leaf for this tea is plucked during April, corresponding to the time of the best quality. Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The Chinese name for Gunpowder Tea is Siaou Chu, which literally means large leaf. Rolling the leaf has two effects on quality of the tea. It forces to the surface the flavourful juices that otherwise would remain in the leaf. Rolling also forces out water, thus helping to reduce the tea’s final moisture content. The pellet retains its shape during firing and keeps its freshness longer than tea not manufactured in pellet form.

Ingredients: Organic green tea, roasted rice

Origin: Japan

Caffeine Content: Medium

Water Temperature: 185 F / 85 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

Genmaicha is one of the world’s most unique teas – just open the bag and you’ll see why. The tea is made using Japanese Sencha or Bancha grade teas – ours is a steamed Sencha – and is blended with roasted rice kernels making the tea look as though it has been mixed with popcorn. The flavour of Genmaicha is light, with mild nutty overtones.  This quality has made it one of the most popular teas in Japan.
Although today it is consumed by all segments of society, this type of tea was originally drunk by poor Japanese, as the rice served as a filler and reduced the price of the tea; which is why it is also known as the “people’s tea.” It was also used by those persons fasting for religious purposes or who found themselves to be between meals for long periods of time.  The sugar and starch from the rice cause the tea to have a warm, full flavour that is similar to that of nuts. It is considered easy to drink and helps one’s stomach feel better

During the 1950s, American interest in all things Latin was at an all time high. As such, it comes as no surprise that it was at the same time that the most famous of all Latin American beverages, the Piña Colada was invented. Although the exact origin of the Piña Colada is disputed, the exotic drink is generally accepted to have first been mixed in Puerto Rico in the mid 1950’s. The drink is made by blending a light rum with coconut cream and pineapple juice – que rico! On a hot day relaxing poolside, or bellied up to bar in Rio or San Juan, there’s absolutely nothing finer.

Our Pina Colada is blend of fruits and herbs that capture the tropical spirit of the cocktail (rum is optional).

As far as states of being go, serenity ranks right up near the top of what we as human beings aspire to. For some it’s a walk in the woods, taking the air while birds call from the trees. For others serenity is found within – a calming of the spirit. Throughout human history many have tried to capture the feeling of serenity and what it means to us as individuals. The ancient Greeks developed the concept of ataraxia, the absence of cares and freedom from worry. From Buddhism we get Passaddhi, serenity of the body, speech and thoughts on the path to enlightenment. More recently, Romantic poet William Wordsworth, (7 April 1770 – 23 April 1850) wrote that “poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in serenity”. We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.
Unfortunately, as modern people in our busy world, finding peaceful moments in which to reflect on life and wax poetic may be a little hard to find. There are meetings to go to, sales figures to hit and clients to impress – who has time for enlightenment? Thankfully, we’ve put together this sumptuous blend of calming herbs and spices to help you slow down, get grounded and enjoy the stillness of time and place for a few moments. The next time you’re feeling the pressure of daily life and need a little retreat, let the round herbaceous notes of Serenity take you on a personal journey of inner peace.

Mate was first discovered by the Guaraní, a people who inhabited the region that includes southern Brazil, Paraguay and north-eastern Argentina. According to legend, the plant was discovered by divine intervention. The story goes that many centuries ago, the goddesses of the Moon and Clouds decided to pay Earth a visit. They touched down in the jungle and were greeted by a vicious Yaguareté, a type of jaguar. Just as they were about to be attacked, an old man appeared out of the trees and fought off the beast saving their lives. To repay him for this heroic act, the goddesses presented the old man with a new type of plant, mate, with which he could prepare a “drink of friendship”. The old man prepared the beverage for his family and from there its popularity grew, steadily becoming the drink of choice for Latin American social gatherings.
While still a relatively novel commodity in North America, Mate’s popularity in parts of Latin America is massive. In Uruguay consumption is so widespread that the government saw fit to enact a law that bans Mate drinking while driving for fear of accidents caused by spilling hot water. In Argentina, where mate is the national drink, it is not uncommon to see people toting calabash gourds, (the traditional container), and thermoses for rapid preparation on the go. Many Argentinean gas stations even provide free hot water to travellers so they can prepare a cup. While nowhere near on the same scale, Mate popularity has grown in North America as well. By some estimates, the drink accounts for 5% of North American hot beverage sales.

Jin Xuan Milk Oolong

Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Image

Tasting Notes: Smooth, milky, buttery finish

Origin: Taiwan

Region: Alishan

Water Temperature: 190 F / 88 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

There is quite a bit of misunderstanding about what milk oolongs are, and sadly there are many low-quality examples of this fine tea dogging about, too. Milk oolong is really a buyer-beware situation, and as premium tea retailers we usually avoid walking right into the eye of the storm when it comes to tea controversy and confusion.

But real milk oolongs are so good that we wanted to shed some light on what milk oolong is and what it isn’t and introduce the real-deal to our customers.

Simply put, milk oolongs are lovely, sweet, lightly-roasted semiball-rolled style oolongs produced in different regions of Taiwan from a particular tea bush cultivar – Jin Xuan (Tai Cha #12 ). This cultivar is sometimes referred to as Golden Lily.

All of Taiwan’s great oolongs begin with specific tea bush cultivars that, in conjunction with the unique terroir of each location, influence the flavour of the tea. Although Jin Xuan is a relatively new cultivar (developed in the 1980’s) it is now one of Taiwan’s four main tea cultivars (dozens of cultivars and varietals are grown throughout Taiwan) and the cultivar behind the marketing of milk oolong tea.

It is the flavour of the fresh leaves from these tea bushes that is transformed into the soft, creamy, ‘milky’ flavour which makes this tea so desirable. Try our milk oolong and you will see that it has very little astringency and an abundance of natural sweetness. This tea has been given a very light roasting, which enhances the milk fragrance – nai xiang – of the tea.

Real milk oolong tea is very appealing and delicious, and very popular in Taiwan and abroad. However, it is important to understand that absolutely no milk is involved in the production of real Taiwan ‘milk’ tea.

Anyway, our customers can rest assured that our milk oolong is the real milk oolong, and should not be confused with Chinese imitations of milk oolongs or low-quality teas that have been artificially flavoured with a so-called ‘milk’ flavour. Real milk oolong is a natural Taiwan original, and has never seen the white-soul of the inside of a bottle of milk.

Its production requires special attention to time, temperature, altitude and soil conditions. This special growing region, and process is what gives this tea its natural creaminess, milk flavour and silky texture. Our Milk Jin Xuan Taiwanese oolong produces a pale yellow infusion, with the milky sweet fragrance and smooth, slightly sweet taste that lingers on and on, this is one tea you cannot forget.

Origin: China

Region: Wuyi Mountains

Water Temperature: 190 F / 88 C

Steep Time: 3-5 minutes

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

Easily the most famous wulong tea in China.  We know by the name, “Da Hong Pao,” that it is the product of three hundred years of innovation, studious agriculture, and fantastical lore.  Modern Da Hong Pao is a tea maker’s blend of leaves from bushes local to Wuyi Mountain, where wulong tea was first invented in the 16th century.

The name “Da Hong Pao” (or “Big Red Robe” in English) is alleged to have come from a few different stories; some stories that say its tea bushes were so revered that they were cloaked in red robes by imperial officials, while others simply claim the name was a poetic description for the color of local tea bushes when dusk light is cast through their newly grown leaves.  Whatever the case, for at least the last century, the characters “Da Hong Pao” have been carved in a rock beside a cliff perched garden on Wuyi Mountain.  The few bushes in this tiny garden are the ancestral material for the modern Big Red Robe.

Suggested Serving: 1 tsp / 8oz

Ginger, (Latin: Zingiber officinale), is one of the oldest known spices in the world. The sharp flavoured root has its roots, pardon the pun, in both India and China, but gets its name from an ancient Indian Sanskrit term stringa-vera, which translates into English as “body like a horn”. The spice is mentioned in the works of Confucious, the Koran, and various European Medieval cook-books. Ginger grew in popularity because it kept for a long time and was able to survive long trading voyages. The spice subsequently became a frequently traded commodity and at one point was usually offered along with salt and pepper.
Now don’t worry, we haven’t unearthed, again sorry the pun, a centuries old storehouse of ginger for this tea – we’ve used a freshly grown variety. And what a tea it is! Blended with the mellow character of South African Rooibos and hints of fruit, the ginger lifts spicy notes that warm the mouth and cleanse the palate. (Incidentally, its palate cleansing qualities make it an excellent alternative to green tea when eating spicy Asian dishes.)

Suggested Serving: 1.5 tsp / 8oz

Many of us, indeed most of us, tea lovers are familiar with Earl Grey the beverage. In all its variations, Earl Grey is a flavourful concoction of tea and bergamot oil that is as distinctive on the nose as it is in the cup. One whiff as it passes your table in a restaurant, or breezing out through a kitchen door, and you know immediately that someone is about to enjoy a few moments of refined pleasure. As the tea rolls over the tongue, pointed touches of citrus come to the fore blending gently with the astringency of the base tea letting you know that yes in fact, this is Earl Grey

Actually, The Earl of Grey, the man behind the world’s most popular tea, died on July 17th, 1845 – about 150 years before the creation of British Earl White tea. Too bad because we’re sure he would have loved this version of his famous blend. The cup is full bodied with a heady Earl Grey flavour and touch of fresh cream leading to a profound jammy finish. (Jammy is a term frequently used to describe the full character of Pai Mu Tan, the Chinese white tea used for the blend.) Brew a pot and raise a cup to the old Earl. Cheers.

It wasn’t until the 1890’s that China began exporting White teas! The reason for this change in the industry came after 1885 when varietals of tea were isolated to make Silver Needle and other specialty white teas like this Pai Mu Tan.
Prior to this development, there simply wasn’t enough white tea to go around. In fact, for much of the time since it was developed during the T’ang Dynasty, (618-907 AD) White teas were reserved for members of the Imperial Courts. The reason was simple. White tea was, and still is, considered a true tea owing to the fact that it undergoes so little processing. This fact, coupled with its delicate flavour meant that it was pure enough for the elite of society.
Since the early days of white tea export, the process by which the tea is made has largely remained unchanged – the fresh leaf is delivered to the factory on foot, withered, lightly rolled and then dried naturally – no further processing required.  This organic Pai Mu Tan is an excellent example of this simplicity of production. The leaf is full and ranges in colour from pale green to silvery with lots of nice tips. The contrast between the leaves gives the tea a very natural look that in turn gives way to a very pure, natural cup. Rounder and more full-bodied than Silver Tip grade, Pai Mu Tan produces a cup that dazzles with subtle layers of peach and floral notes.
