Flight of Teas! November 17th & November 18th
November 16, 2012
The holiday season has begun, tea fans! This weekend, as you and your loved ones are planning your Thanksgiving festivities, don’t forget the most important part-the tea! Stop by our tasting bar to sample a flight of teas selected to compliment your Turkey Day turkey & garnishes. This weekend we are serving Genmaicha, Earl Grey Supreme, and Pumpkin Spice.
Genmaicha, a Japanese green tea, is a favorite amongst tea enthusiasts. During the process of the green leaves drying, rice kernels are added. The kernels tend to get crispy and some burst open, creating the white puffed rice that is noticeable in the blend. With a lighter body, Genmaicha has a toasted flavor. Brew this tea to be served with appetizers that are more sweet than savory to create a complimenting balance for the taste buds.
For the Earl Grey lover, this blend is truly exceptional. Earl Grey Supreme is blended with a higher grade tea base, a good amount of Bergamot, and Silver Tips. With the Bergamot adding a citrus kick, the bold body and overall brew are perfect for an after-dinner slice of pie or fruit platter.
Introducing one of our newest blends, Pumpkin Spice! Based with Rooibos Herbal, we blend pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove to create a seasonal favorite. Because this is herbal (no caffeine), one can enjoy this sweet and spicy tea any time of the day! Bring out this blend with desserts to end your wonderful celebration.
