Dark green and brown leaves, somewhat wrinkled and torn with red brown bits of stems about 2 cm long. Subtle earthy, black coffeeish smell from the wet leaves – steeps to a medium brown color.

The cafe described it very simply as “a Taiwanese, nutty, tea”
Its definitely Oolong, but I found my particular cup to be much more plum. Toasty, but plum. It has a slow dry woody start, but a sweet bright finish. A likable tea, especially as a compliment to something sweet (I had it with a dark chocolate kissed vanilla bean bun).

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Plums, Toasty, Wood

“A woman is like a tea bag- you don’t know how strong she is until she’s in hot water.”

Double Cup is the steamy dream of a feminist tea lover – bringing sexy back to tea. Far gone are the days of stiff Victorian restraint, let the 1950s housewife toil in the kitchen, it’s time for women to serve themselves. Double Cup Teas is two heaping cups of self love: One part artistry, one part activism.

We’re interested in teas as diverse, bold, and complex as the women who drink them.
