T Project "Because the Night" Organic Roasted Green Tea
TEA IT UP
Tea provides comfort, familiarity and, when shared, social communion. Add versatility — do you want a morning boost or a late-afternoon chill? — and it makes sense that tea is joyfully sipped from Marylebone to Mumbai to Memphis. We especially love these T Project blends out of Portland, Oregon: tea alchemist Teri Gelber’s hand-blended creations of quality teas, herbs, spices and flowers, thoughtfully packaged in locally sourced recycled materials.
Rich and toasty, T Project's spiced hojicha is a chestnut-hued, full-bodied, woodsy blend with a low caffeine content that is perfect for late in the afternoon or after dinner. The addition of comforting spices like cinnamon and cardamom along with a handful of buckwheat (gluten-free) up the toasty flavors. Hojicha is different from other Japanese green teas because a roasting process adds nutty earthy notes and a sepia hue.
