So what's brewing at SensibiliTeas?
Recently, we have greatly expanded the variety of teas available on the website. In the shop, we have also expanded our Pu-Erh tea line, added more flavors to our yerba mate blends (mint, spicy ginger, citrus, mango, tiramisu, and yes ... even coffee), and will be adding more flavors to the honeybush line (chocolate, orange, vanilla, hazelnut, apricot). We have even added rare yellow teas to our expansive collection.
What's a yellow tea? Like a white tea, the leaves are washed, steamed and dried. White tea is dried quickly while yellow tea is dried slowly. This make a tea richer in flavor than a white tea, yet still softer than a green tea. The two yellow teas we currently carry are Sparrow's Tongue (pictured here) and Huang Shan Huang Ya.
Both are phenomenal.
We also introduced a couple seasonal blends this year that we now, due to their popularity, plan to carry throughout the year (to the best of our ability). However, the names White Christmas and Noël may be silly names for tea I'll serve all year. So... we're running a contest through 01/30/09. Submit your name suggestion for the teas, and if your idea is selected, you will win 2 ounces of that tea! Please specify the tea for which you have submitted a suggestion.
