What's in our July Boxes

Hello Tea Lovers, 

This month we've excited to bring you a group of teas that are wonderful hot and iced!

Sure, maybe I'm biased, but I think these 4 boxes are some of the best we've ever put together. 

I (Charlie) love the Earl Grey Rooibos (Original & Herbal boxes). The pure Honeybush (Herbal box) has become a nightly ritual for me. It's one of the most comforting, enjoyable herbals I've ever had. And although I don't usually love flavored teas, then White Peach Tea (Original Box) is truly amazing. 

I think this month's All Black Tea box and Herbal Tea box are some of the best we've ever made. I would always want every one of those teas in my household. 

Then again, the Pure Tea Box comes with two very high grade (and expensive) teas that I consider special treats: the Imperial Grade Jin Jun Mei and the White-Tipped Silver Needle. 

No matter which box you're getting this month, you can't go wrong. 

Enjoy! 

~ Charlie

White Peach Tea

Created using premium white tea, this fruity blend has sweet notes of yellow marigold and the tang of dried peaches. White tea is known for its high antioxidant levels and also its cooling properties which decrease body heat, making this an excellent tea to serve iced in the warm summer months. Low-med caffeine levels mean you can drink this tea all afternoon.

Imperial Grade Jin Jun Mei

Imperial Grade Jin Jun Mei.jpg

Jin Jun Mei, which literally translates to “golden horse eyebrow”, is considered one of the most prestigious teas in China. Two small shoots are hand plucked from the plants stem within a very short window of time during early spring. It is then fully oxidized and produces a sweet fruity red cup with a long-lasting flavor.  

This very high-grade (and expensive) Jin Jun Mei, harvested in April 2018, is delicate for a black tea and should not be overheated or over-steeped. This one is a special treat for our Pure Tea Box members this month! 

Ingredients: Pure black tea. 


Wild Thai Green

Wild Thai Green comes from one of our favorite tea provider's limited-quantity private reserve.

This roasted green tea from Thailand is light and lively with notes of tropical fruit, toasted hazelnut, and honey. Its wild orchid aroma beautifully scents the room when brewed, and its strength brightens the body and lends some energy to a lethargic afternoon.

A fresh and pleasant green tea to perfectly quench the palate.

Ingredients: Pure green tea. 


Kanchanjangha Black

Earl Grey lovers will love this caffeine-free twist on a classic, perfect for easing you into evening.

South African rooibos or "red bush" tea helps with digestion and sleep, but this particular rooibos has been scented with bergamot essence, making it earthy and woodsy with a refreshing citrusy aroma. Rooibos lovers will still appreciate the mineral finish, while notes of clover and pine liven up the palate.

Ingredients: Rooibos, essential bergamot oil. 


Honeybush

Honeybush is often used to make flavored and blended concoctions, but it is absolutely wonderful on its own. It brews a deliciously comforting cup of tea.

Honeybush tea is prepared from the honey-scented Cyclopia plant found in the Cape Mountain regions of South Africa. Its unmistakable notes of hot apricot jam and a refreshing floral sweetness grant this tea a forever favorite in our herbal collection. Try it the traditional way with milk and sugar, or enjoy it in its pure state to truly appreciate its true wonderful flavors. 

A very flavorful and enjoyable herbal tea! 

Ingredients: Honeybush. 


Yi Mei Ren Black Tea

Photo-Coming-Soon.jpg

This fervent Yunnan black tea has the familiar notes of bittersweet chocolate like other black teas from the Wu Liang Mountains, but with the complexities and lingering smoothness of an expertly crafted oolong. Highly aromatic with a clear tea liquor brewing to a lovely deep golden hue, this tea's subtlety is most appreciated in its natural state. Due to its higher levels of oxidization, this tea can be stored for several years, but it's so delicious we don't think that will be possible!

Spring 2018 harvest. 

Ingredients: Pure black tea. 


Summer

This caffeine-free herbal tea is a thirst-quenching delight when brewed cold and equally refreshing when brewed hot. It is rich in peppermint and turmeric, making this a great tea to sip on after a summer BBQ feast. Savory fennel and a touch of black pepper brighten the palate and counter this tea's natural sweetness. Try it iced as a delightfully different way to hydrate, or serve it hot to settle the tummy.

Ingredients: Peppermint, turmeric root, fennel, black pepper.


Citron Mint Black

A perfectly revitalizing and vibrant tea to brighten up a sluggish day, this high quality Yunnan black tea is infused with a refreshing dose of mint and tangy citrus. Waken up the palate with lemon verbena and peppery calendula, soothing the throat and settling digestion while packing a caffeine punch ideal for tackling your to-do list. Enjoyable both hot or iced!

White-Tipped Silver Needle 2.jpg

Silver Needle white teas are a personal favorite of ours at Tea Runners. It requires the utmost skill and attention to craft this delicate tea and the rewards are prevalent in its earthy, sweet notes of ripe grapes, fallen forest leaves, and sweet spring flowers. Known as the "scholar's tea", white teas are for relaxed sipping when moments of clarity are needed. Enjoy this tea with nothing added, and discover its evolving flavors through multiple infusions.

Ingredients: Pure white tea.

Happy sipping!
