Tea of the week: Assam Tarajulie FBOP

No winners last week, not a real surprise since I've so neglected this blog. This weeks tea is Assam Tarajulie, a thick full bodied tea that is a great morning tea! Please comment below for a chance to win 4 ounces of this wonderful tea.

Tarajulie is a beautiful estate that lies in the shadows of the Himalayan mountains on the Bramaputra River plain. On a clear day the majestic mountains are visible on the northern horizon. The estate was purchased by the George Williamson Group of companies in the mid 1980’s and they have maintained the high standards that this estate was known for. The estate produces only orthodox manufactured tea. You might ask - What gives Assam tea its special characteristics? The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River - a large slowly meandering river which over millennia of spring and fall flooding has deposited a rich loam over the valley. The soil is a deep and sandy and the region suffers a very hot and steamy monsoon season, but equally important a relatively dry and cool winter. Perfect conditions for the Assam tea bush.

Back in stock this week is Decaf English Breakfast, Decaf Peach Apricot and Keemun 3 Monkey. I hear from my supplier that Chinese black teas will probably be going up in price soon, so stock up.

Fall sales have definitely kicked in and our Fall Sampler is as popular as ever...go check it out! Last weekend hubby and grandson went camping with the Boy Scout den and they were gone all weekend, boy was it quiet ... just me and the dogs! The leaves are starting to come down like crazy, I think we will be raking this weekend. The fall colors are beautiful this year. How is it in your neck of the woods? Have a great week!


Tea of the Week: Cream Earl Grey

Wow, I have been so bad about posting here. All I can say is life is sometimes not gentle. We will have a drawing for Tea of the Week. And I have an inventory update and reviews from The Tea Review Blog.

Our Cream Earl Grey tea is 20% off this week and boy do we have plenty, just got a big shipment in last week. Earl Grey is one of the most popular English teas in the world. Cream Earl Grey has a taste that is smooth with vanilla overtones which compliments the bergamot flavor of our premium Earl Grey. I adore Earl Grey, but the addition of vanilla really takes it to the top of my list of favorites. Don't forget to leave a comment to be included in the drawing for a free 4 ounce bag!

The good people over at the Tea Review Blog have been reviewing our teas again. Look for their review button on Angels Dream, Blackberry Green, Chai Rooibos, Cream Earl Grey and Maple Cream.

One inventory update, Superior Gunpowder is back in stock after being gone almost 2 months.

Hope you all have a great week!
