Sunday, my husband was overjoyed and all giddy that the Steelers won their game and were headed to the Superbowl, so it was the perfect time to ask him to take me to Steven Smith’s shop on Monday. I pretty much could have asked him for anything at that point, but, at the time, all I could think of is tea and visiting Smith’s shop.
I am so glad I went! I was able to procure some of the Rogue Whiskey Black tea, some chai and some of this! Yum yum yum! They have three different RTD teas, and Amy, the Tea specialist who assisted me was nice enough to give me a tasting of each one, and this is the one that I decided to take home with me based on that tasting.
Amy described the process of making these teas: First, the filtered water is infused with the fruit, and then, they use that infused fruit water to steep the tea. The sweetening is very light here, the fruit provides most of the sweetening to it. It’s really delicious, and the best – THE BEST – ready to drink tea I’ve ever tasted.
Unfortunately, it’s not available online, I don’t know if it can be purchased at other locations carrying Steven Smith’s tea. For those of you in the Portland area, though, I highly recommend stopping by Steven Smith’s and trying these!
