our blends

BLENDED BY HAND IN SMALL BATCHES, USING THE FINEST INGREDIENTS FROM LOCAL FARMS AND BUSINESSES

We love what we do. Our teas and tisanes are blended by hand in our certified kitchen in the foothills of Mount Mitchell State Park. All care is taken to maintain the flavors, aromas and fine qualities of our tea.


YAUPON

Yaupon is a type of holly and is North America’s only native tea plant and the only edible caffeinated plant indigenous to the Southeast.

Used by Native Americans, it is high in antioxidants and theobromine, which is the same euphoric substance in dark chocolate. And it's slightly lower in caffeine than black or green tea.

To brew, use boiling water and steep for about 5 minutes.

LEMON YAUPON

Yaupon with lemon peel, lemon balm and lemongrass

ELDERBERRY YAUPON

Yaupon with blackberry leaf, elderberry, hibiscus, roselle and rose hips & petals

 

GREEN TEA 

Tea drinking in China dates back to more than 4,000 years ago. Camellia sinensis (tea) leaves are minimally processed to remain delicately aromatic and naturally stimulating.

To brew, boil water and let the kettle rest a bit (160-180ºF is ideal) and steep for about 2-3 minutes.

G & TEA

Green tea with lime basil, rosemary, lime peel and juniper

 
 

BLACK TEA 

Oxidizing tea gives a darker color, concentrates the caffeine and makes for a more robust flavor. Black tea with a splash of milk keeps Commonwealth nations running.

To brew, use boiling water and steep for about 2-3 minutes.

WILD EARL

Black tea with wild lavender bergamot flowers and bergamot essential oil
