new iced teas for summer

Iced tea season has begun! Okay, maybe that’s a misnomer because a contingency of tea drinkers prefer their tea iced all-year round (just as a contingency of people prefer their tea hot even during hot months). So, what I’m really pointing to is the notion that once Memorial Day begins, out come the iced tea pitchers at picnics, potlucks, and parties. I’ve shared my 5 tips for making excellent iced tea every time. This summer check out our new iced tea flavors to keep you cool: Caribbean Isle Green Tea, Passion Fruit Black Tea, Organic Mango, Organic Green Tea Tropical, and Organic Pure Black. They join one of my personal iced tea favorites, Summer Solstice and each show it’s easy to brew good iced tea in minutes.

I fell in love with tea at an early age, growing up in Berkeley. My mom’s from Boston and at 4 p.m. everyday she would brew a pot of tea to drink with milk and cookies. What kid doesn’t love a reason to eat cookies?

Thanksgiving: Why We're Grateful for Good Tea
Thanksgiving: Why We're Grateful for Good Tea

When you drink a cup of tea, do you ever stop and think of all the people who had a hand in bringing you your daily brew? If you buy an apple in the store, you know apples are picked off trees, labeled, and shipped to stores. High quality black and green tea is plucked by hand, a couple of leaves at a time. There might be 30, 40, 60 leaves in your tea pouch or serving of loose leaf tea. That picked apple—it was either yanked off the tree by machine or someone’s hand. Most high quality teas, on the other hand, are still harvested by hand...
The Legend of Dragonwell Green Tea
10/28/2016  |  History of Tea

The naming of tea is no small matter. It can tell you much about the character, nature, and origin of the tea. One of the oldest tea legends has it that in the village of Longjing, during the Qing dynasty, if you peered into the well you could see dragons circling in the water. Some say a dragon even lived in the well. I have been to 3 wells in Longjing and have yet to see any dragons. In one of the wells, you can’t even see the water. Instead, the well got the name because the water had different densities and when it swirled, it looked like there might be dragons in the water. In Chinese culture, dragons are very auspicious and symbolize long life. Seeing dragons in a well was considered a good thing—they weren’t the “eating people” kind of dragons. People try to have children born in the year of the dragon, which is the only mythical creature in the 12-year Chinese calendar cycle, just to give you an idea of how important the dragon is in Chinese culture.
