My Three Cups of Tea

My Three Cups of Tea


I love to sip PG Tips tea in the morning.  I also drink at least three cups of Yamamotoyama Green Tea throughout the day. Long before beauty and health editors touted the benefit of drinking tea, I was a step ahead! Teas are tastier, full of aromatic anti-oxidants and  I support business owners who take risks to be on the forefront of the American tea culture…which I can say was non-existent before Jesse Jacobs came along. Bravo Jesse!

2Samovar Tea Lounge , the brain child of Jesse Jacobs, is one place where I go to taste new tea flavors, bite into mouth-watering desserts and be a part of the burgeoning tea movement. To date, Samovar is home to over 50 of the world’s finest teas (i.e. many of which are organic and fair trade certified) served alongside funky-fine internationally traditional food pairings.

Samovar Tea Lounge was voted a Top 10 Tea in America by USA Today, and has recently been highlighted in publications as Wall Street Journal, CNN, New York Times, Bon Appetite, Food & Wine, Forbes.com, SmartMoney.com, Lonely Planet, Wired.com, and many others.

What are some new flavor of tea/s slated for the next few months/year?

Earl Lavender

Origin: Organic, fair trade black tea and organic lavender flowers blended with natural essential oils of bergamot and lavender in the U.S.

Flavor Profile: A delightful twist on an enduring classic, with rich notes of malt, chocolate and tannin, and all the brightness and freshness of citrus and lavender.

Tea Story: Earl Grey is one of the most classic teas in existence, and some say it is the most popular flavored tea in the world. Earl Lavender elaborates on the Earl Grey theme of black tea with essential oil of bergamot (a type of citrus akin to tangerine or kumquat) by adding compact, potent lavender blossoms to the brew. There are hundreds of variations on this elemental blend – Lady Grey, Earl Grey Cream, Earl Green, Imperial Earl Grey and so on – but this simple twist is our favorite of them all. It has an enchanting appearance, with golden tips and green-violet flowers dappling the deep black tealeaves. The aroma of the dry leaves is extraordinary, like complex, juicy notes of bergamot and tangerine zest in the lavender fields of Provence. The brew is a rich, coppery garnet that reveals the boldness of the organic, fair trade black tea at its base. Malt, chocolate and tannin swell on the palate and are accented by the sharpness of citrus, delicate floral notes and a surprisingly full, velvety mouth feel. The aftertaste is floral, full and lasting, with hints of orange peel and copper. The result is a new level of complexity and dimension in the Western world’s classic flavored tea.

Food Pairings: Earl Lavender pairs similarly to Earl Grey, but with an added floral complexity. It is great on its own or with a hint of sugar. Traditional afternoon tea sweets, such as black currant or raisin scones with Devonshire cream, English trifles, custards, fresh fruit tarts, strawberry shortcake and lightly flavored shortbread are all divine with Earl Lavender. It’s also fantastic paired with chocolate sweets (such as vanilla-iced chocolate pound cake, dark chocolate truffles or chocolate chess pie), unadorned fresh fruits or hearty brunch foods (such as flavorful quiches, buttery, savory pastries or rich fruit pastries).

Cinnamon Stonefruit

Origin: Organic cinnamon, organic, fair trade hibiscus, organic currants, organic licorice root and natural plum flavor blended in the U.S.

Flavor Profile: A touch of woody sweetness, the bright tartness of red plum and nuances of cranberries and currants with a tart-spice finish.

Tea Story: Organic cinnamon, hibiscus, currants and licorice are blended with natural plum essence for a complex yet gutsy, caffeine-free drink reminiscent of Gluhwein, a spiced, warm German red wine with apple cider. Notes of cinnamon stick, cinnamon-laden, stewed McIntosh apple and hibiscus are in the nose and the aftertaste. Shake gently before each brewing for a balanced infusion.

Food Pairings: Like Gluhwein, Cinnamon Stonefruit pairs well with Weiner schnitzel and sauerkraut. It can also handle rich, buttery cheeses, like warm Brillat-Savarin cheese with almonds, or simple vanilla desserts like pound cake with a vanilla bean glaze.

Oolong Tea


4136njUcndL._SS500_

I love tea and drink about 4-5 cups a day, usually after every meal. Long before top-tier magazines touted the benefits of tea, I was sipping Oolong tea. I like to have my tea at a moment’s notice and the Zojirushi Water Boiler and Warmer is a must-have appliance at my casa. I’ve had mine for over a decade…how many of us can say that?

You can adjust the boiler to various temperature, set it up at night to have tea-approved water temperature bright and early in the morning. Plus it’s perfect when I have a large crowd of friends over for dinner. No waiting around for the water to boil…
