Drink Me: Tea Runners

Late last year I heard about a new tea club that would be starting in 2017, Tea Runners.  Tea Runners is the brain child of Jewel Staite and Charlie Ritchie. Each month Tea Runners sends out a box of 4 loose leaf teas along with tasting and brewing instructions.

I was lucky enough to get in for the March box and was delighted when it arrived.  The packaging was really nice; it was evident a lot of thought and care went into the presentation.

The teas included in March’s box include: Makalu Mint Green Tea Blend, CTC Black, Annapurna Oolong Tea and Peach Ginger Detox Tea.

I love that the labels are chock full of information including ingredients, brewing and tasting instructions and where the tea came from so that I could find it again in the future.

This week I had a chance to try both the CTC Black and the Peach Detox Tea.

The CTC Black was excellent. It was strong flavored, but extremely smooth. It was a great black tea for a morning cup, and I also enjoyed it in the afternoon with just a touch of sugar.

The Peach Ginger Detox Tea smelled amazing when I opened it – just like ripe juicy peaches.  It ended up being a really light tasting white tea with a hint of peach. I got almost no ginger in the flavor. I bet this one would be fabulous iced on a hot day, maybe even with a slice of peach?

If you’re interested in giving Tea Runners a try (and I suggest you do!) head on over to the website to sign up to be notified when subscriptions are open and boxes are available.  Do keep an eye on your mailbox as they sell out quickly.  There were 300 boxes available in March and they were gone within a few hours!  Monthly memberships are $25 per box, or if you want to commit to 3 or 6-month subscriptions they’re available for slightly less.
