tisano

Tisano’s single origin Chocolate Tea is the first pure chocolate herbal tea made from the fibrous shell around the cacao bean.  This chocoholics dream come true contains the sweet aroma and rich taste of dark chocolate without the fat or calories, plus magnesium, potassium & vitamin D (that the bean does not have).

Matcha, Matcha, Matcha…

Side by side

Side by side

Our July 4th Matcha tasting was a huge hit, and it was overwhelmingly agreed that our new matchas from Hattori Farms, via Tealet are well worth the extra price.

“I finally found a matcha I like”

and, others said “I’ve never tried matcha because I didn’t realize how easy it is.”

As well as selling Hattori matchas in affordable quantities, we will continue to carry our current organic, premium grade matcha – great for lattes and cooking (though higher quality than common cooking grade).  We served this one at Maplewood’s “Let Them Eat Art” festival on 7/8, and it was a great opportunity to turn more tea drinkers on to the flavor and health benefits of this green wonder [the First Green Drink].
