What's in our October Boxes

Hello Tea Runners, 

Welcome to October! A great time of year for tea.

Several of the very fresh 2018 summer harvest teas have made the trip across the globe to our warehouse and are on their way to you this month and in the coming months.

We’ve also taste tested over 60+ seasonal teas and have selected 3 or 4 of the very best to share with you this fall.

This month we introduce some new teas and some of last year’s favorites make a return, such as the very popular Earl Grey Lavender and White Pearls.

Don’t forget, we take requests to swap out teas in case of allergy concerns or even personal preference. 

Enjoy! 

- Charlie & Jewel

White Pearls.jpg

White teas are picked in early spring from the youngest shoots of the plant where the mild natural sweetness of new growth is most concentrated.

These first flush peony silver needles are delicately handcrafted into the shape of tiny pearls. High quality white pearls like these are in high demand and becoming exceedingly rare.

With its soft mouth feel and cotton candy sweetness, white teas reflect all of nature's goodness. A perfect daytime tea.

Spring 2018 harvest.

Ingredients: White tea.


Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei

Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei 3.jpg

Tong Mu Guan Village near Wu Yi in Fujian, China is an area famous for cultivating the best Jin Jun Mei black teas in the world. This tea, from the April 2018 harvest, is one of the best in recent memory.

This tea has been expertly processed to preserve the fine fuzzy hairs on these tiny leaf buds, resulting in a smooth as silk and extremely high quality golden black tea. Its natural smokiness is juxtaposed by notes of caramelized sugar and honey.

Ingredients: Black tea.


High Mountain Red

Grown at a very high-altitude of 2000 meters, this pure black tea has notes of caramel, honey, sweet potatoes, and malt.

It is picked from the first flush of the spring harvest, lightly oxidized, and processed in a Taiwanese-style.

High Mountain Red is thick and rich with a fruity finish to cut its vigor. A very flavorful and enjoyable pure black tea!

Ingredients: Black tea.

Salty Caramel Pumpkin Black is one of the 3 or 4 seasonal teas we picked from the 60 or so we sampled.

This delicious offering is a perfect accompaniment to the fall season, oozing with sweet and salty caramel goodness and savory pumpkin. The smooth amber hued liquor has a satisfying roundness in its mouthfeel, while the addition of marigold petals brighten its finish.

Try it on its own or with warm milk to make it extra rich.

Unusual enough to leave a lasting impression, Earl Grey Lavender still has that smooth exquisite aftertaste and will pair perfectly with a buttered scone or even a sweet treat in the afternoon.
