Thought for the day.

Try going off coffee for 2 weeks, and switching to strong black tea to reduce anxiety and stress. You can drink more of it, and many people say it feels less harsh to drink.

Paris Tea is amazing

Harney_paris

Harney and Son's Paris Tea is really special and we just got some back in stock. It's a floral black tea with vanilla and bergamot notes. It has a nice delicate quality. Imagine wandering through a giant secret field of flowers while smoking a pipe full of rich sweet tobacco during your 5 week vacation. That's what it reminds me of and you can share the same feeling while sitting at your cubicle at work or riding the subway. We serve it both by the cup, and by the package in sachets so come enjoy some when you get a chance! Good iced, but particularly good hot with a little sugar or simple syrup.

What is White Tea?

What is 100% White Tea?

100% White Tea comes from the tender, white downy buds of the Camellia sinensis bushes from China’s Fujian Province.

Each bud is hand-plucked only a few days of the year, right before the leaf opens. 100% White Tea is minimally processed resulting in a cup with a delicate, faintly sweet flavor and a lingering finish.

Something Interesting to Consider…
Once reserved for the cups of emperors, 100% White Tea remains one of the rarest and most expensive of all teas. The Republic of Tea is honored to offer you the purest and the best 100% White Tea available.

Caffeine
100% White Tea has only trace amounts of caffeine.

Steeping is Easy

    • Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat just short of boiling.
    • Steep tea for 30-60 seconds if using tea bags or 2-3 minutes if using full-leaf.
    • For iced tea, double the amount of tea bags used, steep as above and pour over a generous amount of ice.
    • Experiment to find your favored steeping time and enjoy Sip by Sip.

Come get some tea, Larry!

Looks like they're shooting a new episode of the new Curb Your Enthusiasm up the street on 10th. If you're like us you're thrilled. What a great show. I wonder what the episode will be about? One can only wonder. It would be funny if they went to the bath house. Only time will tell us. Time and HBO also.

Taiwanese girl Emily gives our Original Black a big smile

Dscn7278

This is Emily from Taiwan. Emily stopped in yesterday eager to try our bubble tea after her friend's high recommendation. We can imagine how she must have felt being so far away from Taiwan, the birth place of bubble tea and not having any readily available at every corner of the street. We made her a cold one with no ice just how she likes it. She was so happy she posed a big smile of satisfaction for us to show off! We thank you for your enthusiasm Emily. We hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in NYC! 🙂

XOXO for GraphicHug.com

I found this cute little booth at the Brooklyn Flea on Saturday ran by James and John from GraphicHug.com. They offered many beautifully designed books, posters and zines from various graphic designers. I love their “I Love You” project online, and I hope one day they will do a project on bubble tea haha! Cheers guys and thanks for the buttons! 🙂
