The holiday aroma is among us here in the office.... Richard is busy mixing and brewing different variations for this year's new Organic Chai blend. There are bits of cloves, cinnamom, pepper and cardamom blown around by the wind and ground into the carpet! Smells yummy! When brewing up Chai blends with so many ingredients you need to brew up at least two cups each to account for all the size variations and potency of the spicy flavors. It takes many different mixtures and lots of slurping to match up to our current Chai flavor profile! Love all the spicy smells but reminds me too much of winter! Not yet!! It has been in the 80's and I am not quite ready to start thinking about sitting by the fire with Hot Chai quite yet! The summers up here in the Rocky Mountains are short enough as it is! Richard is still working on the blend so in the meantime I will go have a nice tall glass of ICED Goji Berry Green Tea!

"I am a huge Earl Grey drinker and have ordered numerous teas from around the US and abroad...but Two Leaves and a Bud is hands down the most flavorful and aromatic Earl Grey I've ever had.
It may be a little more pricey than the off-the-shelf teas like Twinings, but it is worth the money." - November 25, 2008
"I'm a much happier person since Two Leaves came on the scene. At last, good, affordable tea that isn't what's left over after making tea. The flavor is true and full without an overdose of perfume. The bags are a wonder to behold. And I do: It's especially nice watching Two Leaves jasmine steep, flowers unfolding. I haven't had jasmine this good since the tea garden in Golden Gate Park. I think that was 1969.... Treat yourself." - February 13, 2008
"I have been searching for an Earl Grey that isn't too heavy with bergamot, but yet with a lot of flavor. This is it! And the quality of the tea is superb. The large bags contain full leaves, not dust and fannings. This is a high quality, delicious Earl Grey. I am hooked." - January 30, 2008
"Two Leaves and a Bud Organic Earl Grey tea is simply delicious. Each box comes with one hundred mesh bags of whole tea, not the dust and debris you'll find in cheaper brands. The tea itself is flavorful and delicious, with none of the aftertaste of commercial brands. As a single person, I hesitated to purchase so many tea bags at once. However, it is definitely worth the investment, as the tea comes in sealed individual plastic bags and tastes superior to tea from Starbucks or Lipton. The tea has a delicate but full flavor, and NO sugar is necessary to make the tea delicious. In addition to making hot tea, you can also use the bags to make incredible iced tea. Simply make the tea at double strength and poor over ice. Again, no sugar is needed - making this tea a good beverage for those of us watching their sugar intake" - May 26, 2007
