Haven't Decided on a Father's Day Gift yet

Time is running out...

Father’s Day is days away!  Do you know what you’re going to get the fathers in your life yet?  Tea and tea ware seem like very feminine gifts, but don’t write them off yet!  Here are a selection of the manliest teas in our store.

Lapsang Souchong is a tea with such a strong, smoky aroma that some chefs use it as a rub to impart a smoky flavor.  The stories of how this flavor was originally created vary, but almost all involve a time crunch resulting from the inconvenience of invading armies or hurried tea makers.  In some versions of the story, fighting off the invasion kept tea growers too busy to keep up with demand, and in order to create more product faster, they smoked the leaves in order to dry them.

If you would prefer to gift a tea with a similarly smoky aroma may be less overpowering, I recommend Russian Country.  This is a hearty tea that survived the long overland journey from China to Russia.  While the smoky taste still dominates the flavor is this tea, sweeter notes of citrus make it a less polarizing experience.

If you’d prefer a tea that still seems masculine enough to not embarrass your father, but which does not taste like campfires and cigars, I recommend Dragonwell. This green tea has wide, flat leaves, formed by shaping them against the side of a hot wok.

In addition to these, I recommend any tea in our store as a father’s day gift.  Tea is not a gendered experience, and we hope that you and the fathers in your life all enjoy on his special day.  Comment below with what you’re giving this father’s day.  Is it tea?
