 Teas

Black Teas:

Almond Blossom: Bold-leafed Se Chung Chinese oolong blended with sliced almonds. Subtle, nutty almond flavor nuance combines with light smoky character of the oolong to yield delicious toasted notes. 

AssamAssam is the quintessential black Indian tea. Rich, robust, astringent and highly aromatic–milk and sugar complement this tea well.

Black CurrantA fruity black tea, great iced!

ChaiBlack tea blended with spices and generally served hot or cold with milk and sweetener. There are many favorite recipes for chai, but the spices most often included are cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger and black pepper

Cranberry Orange: Indian Assam tea blended with a bountiful melange of cranberry flavor and bits of real orange. Subtly sweet and delicious brew.

Cinnamon Orange Spice (Regular or Decaf): A potent blend of black tea and spices, naturally sweet tasting without any added sugar.

Darjeeling: The Champagne of Teas! Darjeeling’s delicacy is appropriate for a light fish course or dessert. Its bright astringency works equally well with rich or oily foods. Darjeeling’s multifaceted flavor also serves nicely as the centerpiece of traditional tea time.

Earl Grey (Regular or Decaf):The best known of the scented teas, its unique taste has remained popular for hundreds of years. Natural bergamot oil is sprayed on tea leaves to create a balanced citrus and tea flavor.While Earl Grey is a tea possessing the delicacy and nuance of flavor to be enjoyed on its own, it’s also beautifully accentuated with a slice of lemon and pairs well with citrus or buttery flavored pastries.

English Breakfast (Regular or Decaf):This popular blend of black teas has a full, robust, malty (and slight citrus) flavor. It’s a good choice for those who prefer a bit of milk or sweetener in their tea.

Ginger Peach (Regular or Decaf):One of the most popular teas.  Fresh & fruity peach flavor. 

Lapsong SouchongA smoked tea with a robust, roasted aroma and flavor, a cup of Lapsang Souchong is best enjoyed with spicy, savory and salty foods.

Green Teas:

BanchaA less costly alternative to the higher-grade Sencha, this tea is more astringent and has a more robust flavor.

Ceylon (Regular or Decaf): Highly versatile, Ceylon goes well with all the traditional foods of tea time. Ceylon makes a lovely afternoon tea.

Genmaicha MatchaThis new tea begins with spring harvested Japanese organic Sencha leaves, rich in fresh green vegetal flavors. Next, grains of toasted rice are added to impart a nutty, grainy sweetness. The final and key component of this tea is the sprinkling of precious matcha, the premium powdered green tea of the highly revered Japanese Tea Ceremony. The end result is a satisfying, substantial, and healthy green tea for you to enjoy!

Gunpowder: This tea has a very rich flavor, with a hint of sweet smokiness. The leaves are rolled into little pellets that unfurl and ‘bloom’ in the cup.

Indian GreenSun-kissed liquor with a nutty top note followed by an astringent flavor. Perfect for tea lovers who prefer a strong tea flavor coupled with the benefits of green tea.

JasmineAfter curing, the dried green tea leaves are spread out with successive layers of fresh jasmine flowers. The tea absorbs the exotic fragrance and yields it nicely in the cup, making this tea a sensual pleasure to drink.

Raspberry GreenWhole leaf green tea with numerous bits of whole raspberries. Sweet tart and fresh flavor and pucker. Try it iced!

Young Hyson: This tea has been compared to a forest after a spring rain, with aroma and flavor that is earthy and wild, yet delicate. It’s delicious hot or iced.

Lemon Ginger: Frontier’s unique Lemon Ginger tea is a fragrant melange of green, grassy blades of lemongrass, orange peel and coriander seeds.

Tangerine WhiteLarge-leafed Chinese white tea and bits of fragrant citrus peel. Clean, luscious tangerine flavor. Subtlety of white tea perfectly complemented by the tangerine.

White Peony:This tea takes its name from its silvery, unopened buds. It has a delicate, ethereal flavor that builds on the palette with each sip.

Yerba maté :Yerba maté is prized as a delicious, gently energizing herbal tea. The flavor of the natural leaf is herbaceous and somewhat like green tea. We also offer roasted leaves for a richer-bodied tea.
