From Hugo Tea Company

Behold, friends! This is the organic black tea you’ve been seeking. Plucked from hundred-year-old tea trees on China’s unspoiled western frontier, 100 Year is unequivocally smooth with flavors of warm honey and malt. It’s an everyday breakfast tea with plenty of caffeine and a bold, complex flavor that can only come from trees that have been around for decades. So brew a cup and get on with it.

(Skip this part; the review will be buried a couple paragraphs down.)

First day post-funeral. It was sweet and simple (Dad would’ve said it was 10 minutes too long), and the funeral director took a wrong turn on the way to the cemetery. Nobody upset about that—it’s twelve miles beyond the back of nowhere and six miles beyond anybody’s cell signal. My brother said it was appropriate to give Dad one more long ride through the country.

I recognize the need to merge back into real life, but I’m stalled at the top of the on-ramp.

(OK, now the tea review.)

Somewhere in the chaos of the past week, we stopped inside our new Natural Grocers with a $10 grand opening promo coupon in hand. Tins of Hugo Tea caught my eye; had never seen it on retail shelves before. Was impressed by the pull-tab top on the tin—they want this stuff to come to you fresh!

And it was. Malty, toasty and bready; some reviews have mentioned a burnt caramel essence which was there—everything that signifies a really fine tea. And the fact that it made an impression on me when I was vague and numb and bewildered says a lot. Second steep was a nice echo of the first.

Pricey, it is; around 10 bucks for a dozen sachets, so it’s not for your morning commute. But a lovely extravagant treat for a morning when you need to pause and ponder.

I’m so sorry to hear this. May peace and tea find their way to you.

Sorry to hears this. I lost my Father a few years ago. Just remember his laugh and smile and the wisdom he taught. My Father was a lot wiser than I realized. Putting prayers for you my friend.

ashmanra

I am so sorry. Rest at the top of that ramp. Then ease forward when you are ready.

It’s ok to be at the top of the on ramp for as long as you need. Some people seem to think that adults should get over the death of a parent quickly, but that’s unfair and not realistic. My mom died in 1995 and I still have days where all I can think about is how much I miss her.

I’m truly sorry for your loss. The passing of a father is the end of an era and unfortunately, one that I know is in my future. Sadly, my 89 yr old Dad has a very weak heart and it’s just a matter of time since he’s probably not a transplant candidate. I’m not looking forward to what you must be experiencing. May God grant you his everlasting comfort and peace.

So sorry about the loss of your father. I found I really was in a strange head space for a while after I lost a close family member part shock, mixed with bitter sweet, sometimes funny reminisce with friends and family, and things reminding me of them and their loss everywhere. It’s not easy. May you find comfort and peace through your faith and your family.

My condolences to you, gmathis. This is such a hard thing and there is certainly no rushing the various states you are and will be going through as you digest the immensity of all this. Be very very kind to yourself and take the time to spend to contemplate and honour him and yourself with your very best teas.

gmathis

Thank you for the prayers, kind thoughts, and sweet words. That’s what has kept me going the past several days.

Evol Ving Ness

And there’s lots more where these came from. <3

Backlog. Bought a tin of this tea at Midwest Tea Fest. Tried it there and was impressed by the flavor and smoothness. Dry leaf smells of chocolate malt.
208F, 5min, 8oz. Tastes of chocolate, honey, malt. So smooth. Really liking this for mornings and it resteeps well. Great morning tea. Great dessert tea too. 90

Already checked their website to see if I could get more. I have plenty and don’t need more. It’s sold out on their website, well unless you want wholesale. Though they do sell in grocery stores in KC.

Flavors: Chocolate, Honey, Malt, Smooth

I know they’ve been trying to expand regionally – nothing in your neck of the woods yet?

hawkband1

Nope. Nothing that I can find. Drive to KC isn’t far so it’s easy enough to restock.

This tea is so surprisingly good. I believe this is the tea I got from the Beginners Puerh TTB. I brewed it gong fu this morning with my friend Rose and we were both taken aback by the smell and flavor of this tea. Burnt caramel (in the best way possible) was what this reminded me of. Malty, sugary sweet, and rich in depth. I even over steeped this on the third steep by a good minute or two because I was distracted with conversation and, while strong, it still gave a great flavor with no real hint of bitterness.

I want to order this tea. Better yet, if you are someone who has it and does not care for it, please let me know. I will gladly take it off your hands :)
