I came by the store a few weeks ago with my girlfriend while we were camping in Idyllwild and I was amazed to see so many flavors of tea to choose from! The manager/owner was so generous with his time, encouraging me to smell a bunch of different kinds and making recommendations. I was looking for a special tea to make ice cream with to serve at a fancy dinner party i was hosting so i wanted one that jumped out at me. He spent about 15 minutes with me and we eventually got to Black Merlot. Wow, one whiff and I knew it was a winner!
Thank you so much for all your time and personalized attention! I would have been overwhelmed without your guidance. All I can say is the flavor drew rave reviews and pretty much everyone wanted seconds and thirds! It was fantastic!
Thank you again,

Black tea that has been blended with Papaya, Hibiscus, Currants, Bilberries, Elderberries, Strawberries and Raspberries. The result is an astonishing aroma reminiscing of a fine Merlot wine. The fruit blend has a flavor somewhat similar to that of Blackberries.
The good quality tea utilized is from Vietnam. The fine and pretty whole black leaves produce a medium bodied cup with a dark golden liquor. The full round taste at a reasonable price really need not fear any competition from neighboring China. With light undertones of fruit and hints of grass, the tea provides the perfect compliment to the fruits added to it.
An outstanding tea which may be served any time of the day. Lightly sweet, medium bodied, flavorful and fragrant, producing a reddish liquor. You will also find that this blend makes an exceptional iced tea.
Lapsang souchong is a black tea originally from the Zheng Shan part of Mount Wuyi in the Fujian province of China. Legend claims that the smoking process was discovered by accident. During the Qing dynasty, an army unit passing through Xingcun camped in a tea factory filled with fresh leaves awaiting processing. When the soldiers left and the workers could get back into the premises, they realized that to arrive at market in time, it was too late to dry the leaves in the usual way. So they lit open fires of pine wood to hasten the drying. Not only did the tea reach the market in time, but the smoked pine flavor created a sensation! The result of the flavor is usually described as "smoky". Tea drinkers describe lapsang's flavor as "assertive" and "bold".
Lapsang souchong is considered most complementary to spicy or salty foods.
Intriguing, vibrant Japanese green tea produced from green tea paste based on Matcha, the tea powder used for the Japanese tea ceremony. Matcha in turn is actually powdered Sencha. It undergoes a special process whereby water is added to the tea powder, kneaded, extruded through a machine (similar to making fresh pasta) and finally dried to result in a “pine needle” like form. Once dried, the “needles” are cut into small pieces approximately 1/4 inch in length. Thus Kokeicha translated from Japanese means “formed tea”. Kokeicha is a satisfying, smooth-tasting tea with nutty notes. Maximum flavor and benefits.
