Recommendation

Great Teas for Transitioning Into Spring

by Cynthia Fazekas

Green Spring Sprouts

April showers alternate with sunny days, as do cool days with warm ones. With the back and forth of the transition into proper spring, we have some favorites for the sleepy bears just emerging from hibernation and the early spring flower children who bloom early.


For chilly days and sluggish starts, we love these:

  • Scottish Breakfast - deep and rich, one of our boldest black tea blends.
  • Black Dragon Pearls - hand rolled marble-sized pearls of yippy Yunnan grown black tea. Smooth and complex.
  • Matcha - Green tea powder from Uji, Japan perfect for lattes or drinking straight. Soft hints of cocoa and sweet grass.
  • Jump Start - An eye opening blend of herbs and black tea, perfect for the former coffee drinker, or anyone who needs a caffeine boost.
  • Wuyi Oolong - Rich and complex, a medium roasted, bold leaf oolong prized for its honey and mineral notes.
  • Masala Chai - Classic masala spices in a black tea base. Soul warming with well-balanced spices.
  • Almond Oolong - Sweet almond with slightly roasted oolong from Taiwan. Comfort in a cup!

  • For warmer days and sunnier energy, we love:

  • Citron Green - Lemon and orange flavors with mild and smooth steamed green tea for a perfect pick-me-up.
  • Lemongrass Ginger herbal - Zesty and lively for anytime or when your pollen allergies hit.
  • Lemon Meringue Green - Cream and lemon notes with green tea for a springtime treat.
  • Berry Crème Compote - Juicy red berry flavor with a hint of creaminess in a hibiscus and rose hip base. Caffeine-free and delicious hot or iced.
  • Honeybush Apricot - Sweet, rich honeybush with the tangy sweet notes of apricot. Caffeine-free for anytime enjoyment.
  • Cha Cha Herbal- Chamomile, lemongrass, and peppermint to put the spring in your step!
  • Whatever the weather brings, be ready with a nice variety to warm soul and spirit! Keep your tea menu fresh and lively!
