Nutty Teas – Plus Salted Coconut Bulletproof Tea and Hazelnut Tea Cookies Recipe
There is something about nutty teas and the change of seasons. The honeyed aromas of our nutty teas make you want to curl up and read a good book this fall.
Cozy in with your favorite nutty herbal tea. Or, use the robust caffeine levels of our black nutty teas to bring focus and clarity to your back-to-school studies or the next tasks on your to-do list. These nutty teas are complex, delicious and absolutely full of flavor.
Our nutty teas are aromatic. Slightly roasty and subdued mellow notes shine in each of them. The blends are well-rounded and complex, so they stand alone, but also go well with cream and sugar. Or, with Roasted Almond Black Tea add a splash of sweet almond liquor (Amaretto) for a warm, decadent evening treat.
We love nuts and they add such a great flavor profile to tea. The deep, hearty taste of the nut adds layers of complexity to a variety of teas and tisanes.
Hazelnuts are often associated with decadent desserts and chocolates. Thanks to Nutella, most of us love hazelnuts.
Walnuts originated in Persia and have been consumed for centuries. They were once only served to royalty. Now, we have hearty, nutty teas to enjoy.
Coconuts are classified as a fibrous one-seeded drupe. When loosely defined, the coconut is considered a fruit, a nut, AND a seed.
Almonds are velvety and classic, reminiscent of old-world pastries.
We’re nuts about these nutty teas…
Green Walnut Green Tea
This playful organic green tea blend combines the rich tastes of nuts and maple with tropical fruit for a flavor that is new, yet familiar, and tropical yet traditional. Our organic green tea gets its oomph from the addition of sweet maple brittle, tangy pineapple bits, tropical coconut and rich almonds and walnuts. The result is a balanced and totally delicious blend you’re sure to love.

Roasted Almond Black Tea
Black tea leaves are warmed up with spicy cinnamon bits and tropical coconut. Red safflower petals lend a festive feel to the blend, while sea salt adds depth and richness to the flavor of the brew.
