What’s Your Cup of Tea?

Lately, it seems there are quite a few articles being written comparing the various attributes of two of our favorite beverages--wine and coffee. As Sonoma County's leading purveyor of sustainable coffee, we can appreciate the similarities. Both require a painstaking labor of love and in return offer us an intriguing world of flavors and aromas to explore. Both come to us from distinct regions around the world and take on a signature, or terroir, from the unique places they are grown. Both have developed into a kind of personal ritual, often as bookends to our day.

Jasmine GreenJASMINE GREEN
Closer to green than Oolong tea, our Jasmine is selected from hundreds of fine teas, the leaves being picked at their flavor peak in the spring before the rain and the period of fast growth. The tea, a Pauchong, is then held with special care until summer when the best flowers are available for blending to impart their rare and delicious perfume. It is indeed a tea of teas - extremely fine, delicate and aromatic.

Ingredients: Organic Jasmine silver hair tea. Contains Caffeine.
