TEA 101: Which one is for me?

Posted by ITO EN on Jul 1, 2015 9:43:00 AM

Are you new to tea and overwhelmed by the number of choices?  Luckily for you, we’ve put together a very simple roadmap to finding a tea we think you will love.

We’ll start with a simple question.  Are you ok with Caffeine?

PART I (No caffeine for me please!)


If you are looking for something to drink late at night, and don’t want any caffeine in your beverage, we recommend visiting our Tisane section.  Everything here, aside from Yerba Mate and Roasted Yerba Mate, is naturally caffeine free.  Rooibos and Chamomile are naturally sweet in taste.  If you want to spice things up a bit, try our fan favorite Ginger Tangerine Rooibos or the sweet anise-like taste of Fennel Seed.  With summer not even 2 weeks old, maybe something more refreshing to serve on ice is what you’re looking for.  Try Lemongrass or Peppermint for a great palate cleanser or brew up a pitcher full of hibiscus which is delightfully tart and refreshing like unsweetened cranberry juice.

Is a caffeinated tea more your style? Come back tomorrow as we explore the wide variety of teas with caffeine and help you find the perfect one for your palate.
