We’re In Love With February’s Teas!
Our February box of Steepster Select has just been shipped and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on it. February is the month of Love and we’ve definitely fallen for this month’s selection of teas. We’ve sourced special varietals from all over the globe including China, India, Japan, and Indonesia! We hope you love them as much as we do.
And now a look at the teas:
Darjeeling, India - Grown high in the Teesta valley at the base of the Himalayas, this 2nd flush brews up with the famed muscatel aroma associated with high grade Darjeelings. A classic afternoon tea.
Java, Indonesia - A boutique offering showcasing the unique terroir of West Java in Indonesia. Volcanic soil, high altitude, and careful harvesting make for a unique cup. Goes great with milk.
Fujian, China - Picked from the Da Bai Hao cultivar, this high grade green tea is gently picked and hand rolled. The tea is then meticulously dried with fresh jasmine to impart its distinct floral aroma and flavor.
Anhui, China - The Burgundy of tea, Keemun is considered by many to be the finest black tea produced in China. Grown in the Huangshan mountain range, this black tea is soft and approachable while incredibly complex: a marriage of floral, fruity, smoky, and mineral flavors.
Kyushu, Japan - Roasted in small batches, this houjicha comes from exclusive 1st flush leaves and stems. Constant monitoring during production ensures a perfectly balanced sweet (caramel-like) and salty (umami richness) flavor profile. A daily favorite at Steepster!
