Not for me

I’ve loved every Smith Tea I’ve tried, but this one isn’t for me. From the tasting notes I didn’t expect it to be as savory as it is.

I could drink this everyday

I love mushrooms :) This green tea is light and savory with added sweetness from the licorice and coconut. The symphony of flavors starts with the first sip, and continues into the after taste. I could drink this tea everyday.

Breakfast in the Woods...

...not my cup of tea. I kinda regret this purchase because I could only have one cup due to the taste that I don't quite enjoy.

Candy Cap Mushroom

Fungi

Candy cap is a small to medium-sized mushroom and particularly distinguishable by its maple syrup-like scent. It is highly aromatic and often used for flavoring in culinary preparations.

Pacific Northwest

The Pacific Northwest is a region along the West Coast of the U.S., consisting of the states of Oregon and Washington. The Cascade Mountain Range, which cuts through the region from north to south, acts as distinct divider of landscape and climate, with the west side receiving ample rain, creating a lush evergreen environment, while the east remains arid, creating a high desert environment.

Douglas Fir Tips

Evergreen Tree

Douglas fir sees a wide use in heavy timber construction and is commonly used as a Christmas tree. Each spring, tender new tips begin to grow and can be harvested to use as a tea or other culinary applications for a delicious citrus-pine flavor.

Hojicha

Japanese Roasted Green Tea

Hojicha is the biproduct of making Sencha and Bancha and comes from the discarded misshapen leaves and stems during those teas' production. An extra step is added, through roasting the tea, which creates a very different flavor profile and makes for a lightly caffeinated cup. Deceptively rich, with notes of honey, cacao and wood.

Kagoshima Prefecture

Kagoshima Prefecture is located on the southern most part of Kyushu Island and is the second largest tea producing prefecture in Japan (after Shizuoka). It is also famous for Sakurajima, Japan's most active volcano that is pretty hard to miss if you spend anytime in Kagoshima City. Harvest time for the tea used to make Houjicha happens from April through September.

Licorice Root

Botanical from China

Licorice root comes from a herbaceous perennial that has been used medicinally for thousands of years in both the East and West. In modern times it has also become used as an ingredient in various tea blends. Licorice root is utilized to give body and sweetness to our holiday blend, Silent Night.

China

China is located in Eastern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations. It is also the birthplace of tea and continues to lead on innovation in every tea category. Traditional Chinese Medicine is often practiced using an array of botanicals and spices, many of whcich are grown locally, including the licorice root in our pantry. Our licorice comes from several regions in China and is harvested in the spring and fall.

Organic Nutmeg

Indian Spice

Nutmeg is a spice made from the seed of the genus Myristica. Myristica fragrans is a dark-leaved evergreen tree cultivated for two popular spices derived from its fruit: nutmeg, from its seed, and mace, from the seed covering. Nutmeg has a distinctive fragrance and a warm slightly sweet taste; it is used to flavor many different dishes and beverages.

India

India is located in Southern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations (Indus Valley shout out). It is a country rich in history, culture, religion, geography and so much more, and has been famous since ancient times as a source for spices that continue to be coveted around the world.

Turkey Tail Mushroom

Fungi

Turkey tail is a common polypore mushroom found throughout the world. It often grows in semi-circular shape and generally found on trees. With its shape and variety of colors being similar to a wild turkey, it’s commonly called turkey tail.
