‘The naming of teas is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your everyday games—
Some might think you mad as a hatter
Should you tell them each goes by several names.
For starters each tea in this world must belong
To the families Black or Green or Oolong;
Then look more closely at these family trees—-
Some include Indians along with Chinese.”
T.S. Elliot, The NAMING OF CATS with liberties taken by Local Coffee + Tea :>
The naming of our latest tea was very difficult too and you have every right to think the name was taken straight from a T.S. Elliot book! We are very excited to announce STRAWBANGO BLACK in time for the Holiday season and we know you will love this blend as much as we do.
STRAWBANGO BLACK is an organically cultivated black tea from the mountains of Sri Lanka. Not only do we have a splendid tasting black tea, but two of our favorite Florida fruits are added for the perfect amount of exotic sweetness! Scattered between the juicyness, you will find delicate Calendula blossoms. A truly beautiful and aromatic tea.
Have you guessed what those fruits might be? Strawberry and Mango of course, two fruits made for each other.
We are already planning to serve lots of this tea hot and iced both at the Sarasota Farmer’s Market and in the Carriagehouse Tea Room at Selby Gardens. Also, I will be featuring STRAWBANGO BLACK in my tea class on December 13th.
Join us in celebrating this exceptional tea with a ‘bang’! Gift yourself, a friend, or a member of your family with some loose leaf tea and celebrate the Holidays in style.
