BLUEBERRY MATCHA Sips by TIPSON TEA
Enjoy juicy blueberries and the invigorating refreshment of organic matcha green tea! This blend provides an energy and concentration boost without the side effects of excessive caffeine.
Matcha is a type of Japanese green tea that is ground into a fine powder, and typically whisked with water. Matcha is very rich in L-theanine, an amino acid that has a calming effect and mitigates many of the negative effects of caffeine. Caffeine and L-theanine together are known to increase cognitive performance and mental focus. Blueberry Matcha from Tipson Tea comes in convenient tea bags that are made of bleach-free wood pulp and free of staples. This tea is part of Tipson's new lines of Matcha and Turmeric teas.
Based in Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Tipson Tea crafts traditional blends with innovative expressions, using high-quality, organic ingredients sourced directly from the luscious tea gardens of Sri Lanka within a few weeks of harvesting. In addition to more traditional offerings such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey, and Jasmine Green, Tipson Tea has a range of different innovative product lines, including wellness, matcha, turmeric, and moringa teas.

BLUEBERRY BASIL ROOIBOS Sips by WIGHT TEA
This unique handcrafted blend is fruity with a hint of savory from the basil. It's caffeine-free and has green rooibos as the base. It's delicious hot or iced!
Rooibos has needle-like leaves, and comes only from the Western Cape region of South Africa. The type of rooibos most of us are used to is red rooibos, which goes through an oxidation process (kind of like black tea). Green rooibos comes from the same plant, but the difference is the way it's processed - immediately after harvest, green rooibos is steamed to stop the oxidation process (kind of like green tea). The result is a more delicate herbaceous flavor, a lighter-colored brew, and a higher antioxidant retention. In fact, green rooibos has more antioxidants than almost any tea type. It's also rich in vitamins and electrolytes, making it a great refreshing beverage during the summer!
Wight Tea Co was started by two tea-obsessed siblings in Baltimore, Maryland who share an appreciation for high-quality teas. They have cultivated a passion over the years by creating and sharing their handmade blends with each other, and now want to share their love and knowledge of tea with the world!
