JUNE 2024

School is out and we are in full-on summer break mode. This year we are building a new deck, taking in some new sights, and of course, keeping up with the second flush harvests.

Samples from around the world are starting to arrive and we are plotting out this years Fall and Winter collection. If you have any suggestions or comments, nows the time to send 'em.

We hope y'all have an adventuresome and relaxing summer, full of pitchers of iced tea—and no wild fires nearby.

Stay cool everyone.

A new summer OASIS

We set out to make lemon grass a summer hit, and to shift her personality from Asia to Mexico.

Cactus flowers add a touch of dried apricot, sarsaparilla for a pinch of cream and wood, and Spanish orange peel for a dry and citrus finish.

Made for everyday drinking and to accompany lunch or simple fair, OR for a cool and refreshing glass of flavored agua on a hot summer day.

GOLDEN RULE

$20.00
tea - iced tea - sweet tea

A black tea inspired by recipes from prohibition times and rebuilt with sun brewing and sweet tea in mind.

Made with three "golden" black teas, crafted by hand in early spring—high up in the foot hills of South East China.

Smooth and silky with notes of dark honey and a striking golden cup color, this is our go-to black tea for cooler summer mornings and pitchers of iced tea when the neighbors stop by.

A NEW GREEN TEA

We paired a PINE NEEDLE green tea with baby Douglas fir needles, which we hot pressed by hand until dry—the same technique used when making the green tea some 6500 miles east of us, for a soft touch of pine and PNW spirit.

Delicious hot and refreshing over ice. We suggest brewing overnight in a Nalgene bottle before heading off on your next hike.

Dark and cold evenings command a warm and comforting drink, and even better yet is one that transports you to a cabin in the woods.

Rustic yet clean and bright with delicate spice, gentle notes of smoke and a hint of vanilla.

Enjoy this tea strait up or lightly sweetened and with a splash of cream. Add a shot of whiskey or rum for a special treat on those evenings that demand it.
