Made in Alabama

Caramel Apple Pie: Caramel apple pie. Tart apple. Crème Brûlée. Available September - December

A delicious autumn treat. Bustling leaves and friends coming together in cooler weather only can be helped by sweetness. Freshly harvested, late Fall, cellar-root apples lend a crisp note to the decidedly creamy, mellow caramel-laced black tea.

To Brew: Steep at 212˚ for 3 minutes.

Cherry Christmas: Biting Hibiscus. Creamy, nutty middleground. Tangy cherry finish. Available November - December

A literal cup of good cheer. Juicy berries, luscious almonds, creamy coconut, and vanilla are carefully blended with a premium black tea. Amaretto delight!

To Brew: Steep at 212˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Chocola-Tea: Silky. Deep. Full-bodied.

Deeply silky but not unctuous. Dried local figs get the taste bud farrago started in style. Sure, dairy-free chocolate chips are the star, but the subtlety of texture and lightness achieved without sacrificing realness is brought by the earthy cacao nibs, locally dark roasted cracked coffee beans, and of course the black tea base. An absolutely sensational black tea with real cacao nibs, cocoa, a hint of coffee, figs, and a mysterious herbal blend. Unrequited cocoa amore this is not. 

To Brew: Steep at 195˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Front Porch Special: Sophisticated. Minty. Floral.

Exactly what it sounds like. All the nostalgia of a hot-weathered portico framed sunset accompanied by a cicada symphony. Local jasmine, spearmint from our garden, and cornflower collaborate with bergamot infused Assam and Ceylon black leaves to pull off this sublime take on a southern tradition. If you want to sip or serve the “perfect pitcher of iced tea” at your next dinner party or barbecue, this will really make an impression.

To Brew: Steep at 208˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Lemon Berry Blush: Bright. Notes of citrus. Medium bodied.

Lemongrass. Tea. Strawberry…Beautifully simple, beautifully delicious. Now we are making it blush. A bright and fruity black tea that connects dried strawberries with lemongrass in a delicious way.

To Brew: Steep at 195˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Old Fashioned Birthday Cake: Robust. Mellow. Pastoral.

Some like it hot, some like it cold. Birthday Cake never simultaneously tasted so indulgent yet so sensible. A premium Ceylon black tea, infused with bergamot and vanilla, blended with locally grown and dried lavender flowers, and garnished with cornflowers.

To Brew: Steep at 195˚ for 3 minutes.

Pom Pearadise: Angluar. Layered. Subdued Finish. Available March - May

This Ceylon black tea base is blended with a delightful combination of pears and lovely herbs. The first taste is sweet and fruity, layered with the subdued finish of lime leaves and lemongrass. This blend is incredibly refreshing and will have you hooked. Each sip of Pom Pearadise is the first ray of sunshine breaking through a rainy day.

To Brew: Steep at 208˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Pumpkin Moonshine: Crisp, spicy front. Medium body. Sweet finish. Available September - December

Reminiscing old-timey jack-o-lanterns, Pumpkin Moonshine carries all the mystery and excitement of autumnal colors and flavors. Local sweet Georgia Roaster Pumpkins add a special malty oomph to the friendly warmth of the ginger and cinnamon, brought home by the sweet anise notes. No tricks. Just delightful treat.

A rich pumpkin spice chai laced with real Alabama pumpkin bits & spiked with cloves, ginger, & traditional chai spices.

To Brew: Steep at 212˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Summertime Chai: Light. Subtle sweetness. Spiced herbs but not spicy.

Not content to relegate itself to only watch the leaves of fall and those of absorbing books during a rainstorm, the summertime chai breaks down all weather barriers with its smooth spiciness. A Light & Breezy Chai.

To Brew: Steep at 208˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Trailblazer Blend: Woodsmoke. Evergreens. Sweet Earth. Available September - January

The sky is ablaze with one final party of color. The fresh, clean scents of the forest dance with pillowy smoke, luring you into a trance as you sit fireside. A sudden pop of the fire reminds you to sip your warming elixer; be present in this moment. Tomorrow will bring new experiences; but this moment is for leaning back against your pine tree, examining the embers, and sharing embellished stories of the days adventures. 

To Brew: Steep at 208˚ for 3.5 minutes.

Imagine the pure bliss of gourmet black tea combined with  luscious chocolate dipped strawberries and a hint of spice. Now stop imagining and order some for yourself.

Front Porch Special

Written by Tasha on 11th Jul 2021

Front Porch Special is delicious. I have been pushing myself to try new teas and break out of my shell and this is amazing. I didn't add anything extra; just brew and drink! It is refreshing with a slight zest to it but not bitter. For sure going to be coming back to get more.
