Stash Tea

  • Golden Darjeeling
    The spring sun gilds the snows of Mount Kanchenjunga. In the clear days before the summer monsoon, the first flush of spring tea is ready for harvest. This is golden-tipped pure Darjeeling, rarest of the Indian black teas, a delicate tea of amber colour and flowery aroma, with a flavour that hints of green muscat.
  • Exotica Reserve Blend
    Exquisite black teas have been selected for this exceptional blend. Golden-tipped Darjeeling, Indian Assam, Ceylon, Formosa Oolong and a hint of Jasmine. Each tea adds its distinctive flavour notes to this exotic blend. A superb afternoon or morning tea.
  • Osmanthus
    The haunting essence of Osmanthus, used in the world's most famous fragrances, adds its scent to this rare and delicate tea from China's Guangxi province. Exotica Osmanthus is a black tea with the body and astringency of a green tea, with a light and fruity flavour.
  • Dragonwell Green
    Dragonwell derives its name from the legend of a benevolent dragon in Chinese mythology. This famous green tea comes from scenic West Lake near Hangzhou. Eagerly awaited each spring in China, this finest grade Dragonwell produces a pale green tea with a lingering sweet flavour.
  • Ceylon Estate Earl Grey
    Steep hills washed with tropical rain produce the incomparable Ceylon teas of Sri Lanka, "island of tea." This superb Ceylon tea is scented with pure bergamot oil from a small citrus cultivated in the Reggio Calabria province of Italy. The result is a truly exceptional Earl Grey.
  • Assam Breakfast
    In the cool before the sun clears the trees, the steam rises from the cup... Wake up! This is pure Indian Assam tea - dark and robust, from the fertile Brahmaputra valley near the Burmese border. Enjoy its unique malty flavour with a splash of cold milk.
  • Lemon Ginger
    This lively tea offers wide - awake flavor without caffeine. It has a smooth lemon flavor with a piquant, lingering bite of ginger.
    The root of the ginger plant has been used in Asian cooking for thousands of years, as it has a clean, fresh, spicy flavor that blends well with many ingredients. Ginger is also very soothing to the stomach and can aid in digestion. It is often recommended for motion sickness and nausea, since it soothes without any side effects.
    Lemongrass is a tall, tropical grass which has a wonderful fresh lemon aroma and flavor. This beautiful plant is found in India, tropical Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, and in Florida and California. Lemongrass lends a wonderful flavor to Asian cooking, especially Thai, Malay and Indonesian dishes. The essential oil in lemongrass, citral, gives lemongrass its distinctive citrus flavor. In fact, citral is often used as a substitute for lemon oil.
  • Licorice Spice
    For our unique Licorice Spice tea we combine the finest licorice root from Europe, cinnamon from Sri Lanka, star anise from China, orange peel from the U.S.and sarsaparilla from South America. The result is a delicious dessert-like tea, good anytime, but especially enjoyable in the evening, as it's caffeine free.
    Licorice Spice is an exclusive blend for Stash Tea. It is both sweet and spicy with the distinct yet subtle flavor of black licorice. Our Master Blender ensures that each handcrafted batch is perfect. Special care goes into the purchase of the herbs and spices which we buy from all over the world for this unique blend.
    One of the key ingredients, licorice root, first appears in the Chinese Pen Sao Ching (Classic of Herbs), written more than 5,000 years ago. Chinese physicians prescribed it to treat a variety of ailments including coughs and colds, malaria, food poisoning, respiratory problems, liver and urinary complaints. They often used its natural sweetness to mask the bitter taste of other herbal medicines.
    Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza) is from the legume family and is 50 times sweeter than sugar. Its name is derived from the Greek word "glycos plus roza" which means "sweet root". The Romans called it "Liquiritia", which evolved into "licorice." There is also evidence that the ancient Egyptians used licorice root. Amid the treasures of King Tut's tomb, archeologists found a bundle of licorice root.
    Another ingredient, cinnamon, is one of the oldest known spices. Cinnamon comes from the bark of an evergreen laurel tree. Native to Sri Lanka, it thrives in this hot, moist climate. Cinnamon is naturally sweet with a delightfully spicy fragrance due to the essential oils found in its bark.
    Star Anise, native to Southern China and Vietnam, is the fruit of a small evergreen tree that bears small yellow flowers. The flowers are followed by fruits in the sixth year and the tree continues to bear fruit for up to 100 years. It is a very pretty spice with the shape of an irregular eight-pointed star. Its Chinese name "Pak Kok" means eight points. Although not related to anise or fennel, star anise has a similar aroma and flavor. It has a licorice-like flavor and a distinct sweet note.
    The sweet orange is the most popular of all citrus fruits. It originated in China where it received its botanical name "Citrus Sinensis". Columbus brought seeds of orange, lemon and lime on his voyages to the New World in the 1490s. During the early 16th century, settlers planted oranges in Florida, which was to become the states flourishing citrus industry. In the early 1700s, missionaries planted oranges in California, which now rivals Florida in world citrus production. Stash Tea sources its orange peel from the best California Valencia oranges. The orange peel is made only from the orange colored outer peel and not the white inner membrane which has a bland and bitter taste.
    Sarsaparilla, a root of woody climbing plants of the genus Smilax, is native to Central and South America. These flavorful roots and rhizomes can be unearthed throughout the year. The ancient Greeks and Romans considered sarsaparilla an antidote to poisons. Sarsaparilla was not a popular herb until the 16th century when Spanish explorers discovered the Caribbean species, a small, prickly vine. The Spanish word for it evolved into sarsaparilla.
  • Wild Raspberry
    Raspberries grow wild in the cooler regions of the northern hemisphere and in some parts of the southern hemisphere as well. The ancient Greeks were the first to cultivate raspberries. They called the fruit "idaeus" because it grew wild and abundantly on the slopes of Mount Ida, as it still does today. Thus it is fitting that "Rubus idaeus" is the botanical name of the primary species for both the wild and cultivated raspberry.
    The genus also includes the blackberry, which is very similar to the raspberry. Both berries come in a variety of colors from white through yellow, orange, pink, purple, red and black. Thus color is not the distinguishing feature, rather the size of the fruit is. The blackberry fruit is larger than the fruit of the raspberry.
    The color of the raspberry is determined not only by its species, but also by climate. Raspberries from Northern India and the Himalayas are black, while yellow and white raspberries grow in Europe and parts of Asia. The wild red raspberry which grows in the United States is sweeter than other species.
    Raspberry jams, jellies, syrups and vinegars are famous around the world, as are raspberry desserts such as ice cream, sorbet, pastries, and pies. However, a bowl of fresh raspberries may be the best raspberry dessert of all.
    Most people do not realize all the health benefits raspberries offer. One cup of raspberries contains 31 mg of vitamin C, and it is a good source of vitamins B-12 and B-6. Raspberries are also high in fiber, low in calories and contain no fat or cholesterol.
    Recent clinical research at the Hollings Cancer Institute in Charleston, South Carolina, confirms that a phenolic compound called "ellagic acid" helps to prevent and possibly inhibit many forms of cancer. Ellagic acid is found in certain fruits and nuts, however, the highest concentration is found in red raspberries.
    At Stash tea we blend the highest quality, most flavorful botanicals for our Wild Raspberry herbal tea. We combine ruby red hibiscus from China, lemongrass from Peru, Valencia orange peel from the United States, rosehips from Chile, and rose petals from Pakistan. Then we add pure, natural flavor extracts from fresh ripe raspberries. The result is a delicious, fruity tea that is both sweet and tangy and very flavorful. This tea can be enjoyed any time of the day since it has no caffeine. It also makes a great thirst-quenching iced tea.
