Black Teas - The familiar classics, enjoy it flavored or straight up and pure.

black teas:

About Black Tea: Black tea is the most intensively processed type of tea. The leaves are allowed to fully oxidize, creating their black color before they are dried, giving black tea more complexity, more astringency and fewer vegetal overtones than are typically found in other teas. Astringency is the "dry mouth" sensation left by tannins in tea, familiar to drinkers of a cabernet sauvignon, or other wine. It is this astringency that pairs so nicely with dairy and sweetener. Achieving the right balance of astringency is one of the leading indicators of quality in a black tea.

 
 

Green Teas - The healthy tea.

green teas:

About Green Tea: Green Tea, best known for its grassy vegetal notes and greenish liquor and leaves, is quickly steamed or pan-fired to denature the oxidizing enzymes and preserve the tea's characteristic freshness. While all tea is antioxidant-rich, some speculate that the minimal processing undergone by green tea allows more antioxidants to reach your final cup. Without oxidation, green teas must be steeped more carefully, as they can become bitter if steeped too long or at too hot of a temperature. Never steep green tea with boiling water; near boiling or even cooler will produce much better results.

 
 

Herbal Teas - Going beyond Camellia Sinensis.

herbal teas:

About Herbal Tea: Our herbals are blended with lavishly delicious flavors, from famously soothing mints to exotic ingredients like cacao, fennel, anise, cardamom and lemongrass to succulent, juicy fruits like raspberry, orange, apple and even tart but deliciously sweet pomegranate.

 
 

Oolong Teas - Among the most prized of all teas.

oolong teas:

About Oolong Tea: The oolongs are a first cousin once removed from the black teas. Oolong tea is partially oxidized to lie somewhere between black and green. While the look is more along the lines of black teas, the taste is closer to the green teas but with a touch more oomph and a rounded mouthfeel. Oolongs are commonly produced in the Fujian province of China and on the island of Taiwan, formerly called Formosa, from which one of the more famous oolong teas is named.

 
 

White Teas - The closest to pure.

white teas:

About White Tea: While white teas are "less processed" than greens, they are usually somewhat more oxidized. Mild oxidation occurs during the "wilting" stage, when white tea is air-dried after it is first picked. White tea is then baked and dried further, and it may be very lightly rolled, but little is done to change what was picked from the plant. One way to tell that white tea is slightly oxidized is that white teas don't usually need to be steeped as carefully as greens. Steeping white tea with boiling water or for longer time periods can still produce good results.
