Sangria Iced Tea

This thirst quenching tropical delight is an alcohol free Iced Tea Sangria. It is a perfect kids friendly summer drink. Please see recipe below for ingredients and direction.

Ingredients to made a 60 oz. pitcher:

  • 5 teaspoons of Black Tea . We used our Assam Behora Estate for its strength and malty flavor. 
  • 2 cups of fruits. Use fruits and berries that are fresh at your local market. We used strawberries, mandarin oranges, sweet tomatos, and apricots.
  • Honey or sugar to taste. Alternatively, use stevia extract to make a sugar free version. 
  • 1 lime and 5 fresh mint leaves.   
  • Ice. 


  • Wash, peel and cut the fruits into bite size pieces and put them into a pitcher.
  • Add mint leaves and honey (or sugar) in the pitcher. 
  • Muddle and mash the fruits, mint and sweetener for 30 seconds.
  • Fill pitcher with ice.
  • Bring 30 oz. of water to a boil. Then use a tea pot (or a heat resistant pot) and steep the tea leaves in the freshly boiled water for 5 minutes.
  • When tea is brewed, strain and pour tea into the ice-filled pitcher.
  • Stir well and top off with more ice if needed.  


Green Tea Mojito

Summer is around the corner! Let’s make some refreshing drinks to quench our thirst. 

Here we made a delicious Green Tea Mojito (with Matcha Green Tea). Matcha adds a nice jammy taste and compliments the mints and lime very well. Below please find the recipe for a pitcher size Green Tea Mojito.


  • 1 tablespoon Matcha Green Tea
  • half cup white sugar. 
  • 2 handfuls fresh mint, or to taste.
  • 3-4 limes. 
  • 1 cup rum. If you prefer alcohol free, use coconut water instead.  
  • 36 oz. club soda.


  • Put sugar and fresh mint into a pitcher. Muddle them until the mint leaves are broken down.
  • Quarter the limes and squeeze lime juice into pitcher. After being squeezed, add the lime pieces in pitcher and muddle them for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Add Matcha Green Tea into pitcher. 
  • Pour and stir rum into the mixture.
  • Add ice. 
  • Add club soda and stir until Matcha and sugar are well dissolved.


Hojicha & Kukicha Mix
50/50 blend of Japanese Hojicha and Kukicha

50/50 blend of Japanese Hojicha and Kukicha

Hojicha is a classic roasted green tea from Japan. It is low in caffeine and has a clean toasty and slightly sweet taste.  

Kukicha is also a traditional green tea from Japan. It is uniquely flavorful. It brews a light cup of tea that is nutty with a  slightly creamy finish. It is very rich in antioxidants and low in caffeine as well. 

We made this blend at the request of a customer. And since we love both teas, we thought we should at keep some for ourselves. When we first tried it, we were surprised at how good and different it tasted. We loved it so much that we decided to add this blend to our roster. It should become available very soon.


So what does the blend of Hojicha and Kukicha taste like? It is very crisp, toasty and slightly sweet. Notes of honey and walnuts are very noticeable. It does not taste astringent at all. This blend is perfect for cold brewing, because of its taste profile.  

If you are a fan of Japanese green tea you should definitely give it a try. 


Senchamint steeped after 3 minutes

Senchamint steeped after 3 minutes

Available now. This blend is a mixture of Japanese Sencha and Peppermint. We call it Sencha Mint. The brewed tea is crisp, slightly astringent and floral. When compared to Moroccan Mint, it is more subtle and doesn't require any sweetener. And of course, it makes excellent iced tea. Cheers!
