Teas & Tisanes April 07 2016
Thinking about your next purchase to steep something new at home? Well, you’re thinking smartly and here is some information to consider. Do you want a pick me up, something more relaxing or even just super flavorful? We have plenty of options from caffeinated teas, to decaffeinated teas (herbals), sometimes referred to as tisanes (pronounced ti - 'zan) and everything in between.
A tisane is a fancy word, from French, which refers to an herbal infusion and is also often referred to as “herbal tea” and is, most of the time, a beverage that is caffeine free.
The use of the word “tea’ in herbal tea allows for a bit confusion to exist, however. It has become typical that we use the word “tea” more often for anything like a plant, fruit, root or bark to be infused in water as “tea.” Similar to saying “Kleenex” for any brand of facial tissue, the word “tea” has become synonymous with what we derive when we put some sort of plant into (usually hot) water – in other words the “infusion” that results from this process.
Tea itself really comes from the tea plant, the Camellia sinensis plant, which contains caffeine, being the big behind-the-scenes difference between the a tea and a tisane.
Enjoy your next decision! Feel free to let us know how you love your "teas". Just Contact Us.
A Note About Sugar February 16 2016
Sugar can be a great in some things but we know that some folks don't need sugar in their diet or don't desire sugar in their diet but either way we wanted to write a few words on sugar.
We do not add sugar to our teas and blends but blends with fruit added, however they may contain very small amounts of sugar derived from the fruit(s). Even our Passionfruit Mango Rooibos (yummy) doesn't scream out super sweetness, though it sounds really sweet. Some palettes used to less sugary drinks will notice that this rooibos is not too sweet, but palettes used to sugary drinks will think this rooibos is certainly not sweet enough - in this case, sweeten to taste :)
Oolong Tea – Your “Resolution Solution” Slimming Friend January 30 2016
Did you happen to make a resolution this year to reduce some of your unneeded extra daily calorie intake? Too Soul has a simple resolution solution. It’s easy with one of our wonderful Oolong Teas.
Pour your hot water over our premium Oolong Loose Leaf tea and watch the leaves as they expand and lighten your cup with apricot and warm colors. Oolong Tea will brighten up your sleepy afternoon, whether it's at your desk or on your way to your workout. This tea is great for helping you make beneficial small tweaks to your daily diet in a positive way.
Oolong tea can also assist in speeding up your metabolism slightly and also assists with fat oxidation, which in other words is breaking down fat in order to be used as energy.
When you Take The Time™ to indulge in a delicious cup of our great Oolong tea, with its fresh, flowery and fruity infusion, it can help keep yourself looking and feeling good and possibly assist in avoiding partaking in some afternoon sweets. Have some local, natural honey on hand for a healthy little sweetening if desired.
Additionally, by keeping a whole lemon around, scrape some lemon zest (more info on that here) into whatever manner you infuse your Oolong for an additional zing or add a ¼ teaspoon of our Citrus Peppermint Herbal for added flavor or to help sooth a sore throat.
Loose Leaf and Tea Bags – The Scoop December 24 2015
- Full Leaf
- Room to Expand
- Fuller Aroma and Flavor
- More Antioxidants, Vitamins and Minerals
- Can decide however much you want
- Fannings and Dust
- Less Room to Circulate
- Less Aroma and Flavor
- Fewer Antioxidants, and Minerals
- Stuck with what’s in the bag
Essentially, what is in a tea bag is often the dust of what is left from rolling and preparing better tealeaves. Using the dust was a way to sell what would otherwise be discarded.
When it comes to a nice warm cup of tea or a blossoming large pitcher of delicious iced tea, Too Soul’s Teas will delight your palette year round. We offer you the ability to create a delightful brew with our loose leaf choices and since they’re loose leaf they are customizable by you in any configuration you wish by mixing different flavors and types.
Like peppermint zing or ginger razz with a black tea in the winter months? Just add a desired amount to your black tea infusion. Perfect choices to send to friends as well as anytime of year – the choice is delightfully yours. CHEERS!

Thoughts On Russian Caravan May 14 2015
The term Russian Caravan was given to Chinese teas, oolong and keemun (Camellia sinensis) which made a thousands of mile journey by camel to Europe through Russia. The journey was months long and the teas would pick up scents, such as from fauna and campfires, along the way. Thus the name arose, Russian Caravan.
Now of course, we do not send our Russian Caravan blend via camel on this trip to get that woodsy, smokey flavor any longer so instead our blend adds the wonderful pine chip fire dried lapsing soughing, giving our Russian Caravan that smoky flavor. Woodsy assam is then added to compliment the smokiness with a floral and fauna taste. Awesome!
Recipes By Rich: Chai Tea Salmon January 15 2015
Cured or Smoked Salmon has always been a favorite in my family, especially around the Holidays or special occasions where there tends to be a beautiful platter of appetizers, cold meats and cheeses. It is almost a certainty that when I see a Salmon and Bagel plate on a brunch or breakfast menu, that is what I am going for.
You will need:
2 sheet pans - equal sized cookie sheets work best
Weights such as 3-4 large cans of Tomatoes or a Brick
A very sharp and thin slicing knife
This Chai Cured Salmon is incredibly simple to make, has a wonderful hint of spice from the Chai and is an elegant and versatile addition to breakfasts, brunches, lunches, appetizers and more. Get a nice fatty piece with the skin still on from your local fishmonger and tell them you'll be curing it. They will pick out a nice piece for you.
1.5 to 2 lb Fresh Salmon Fillet (I used Atlantic Salmon for this recipe)
1 cup Kosher Salt
1/2 cup Turbinado Sugar
3/4 cup Too Soul Tea Original Chai
Rinse the Fillet and pat completely dry on both sides. Overlap a cookie sheet with Aluminum Foil. Make sure you have enough to completely fold and seal the Salmon as a package when complete. Then, line the foil with Plastic Wrap.
Mix the Salt, Sugar and Chai Tea well in a bowl and then spread a medium thick layer on the Plastic Wrap and place the Salmon skin side down on the Salt cure mixture. Take the remaining mixture and pack tightly around the top side of the Salmon.
Fold the Plastic Wrap tightly around the Salmon to create a package and then do the same with the Aluminum Foil. Place the second cookie sheet on top of the Salmon and place flat on a shelf in the refrigerator. Weight the top down with a brick or several cans of tomatoes or something similarly heavy.
Cure the Salmon in the refrigerator for 48 to 72 hours.
Remove Foil and Plastic Wrap and rinse well under cool water in the sink. Gently pat completely dry. The Salmon will have developed a slightly rubbery top crust. This is easily removed with a few parallel slices with your sharp knife.
Slice the Salmon in very thin strips keeping your knife at only a very slight angle to the fish. Serve immediately.
Rye bread with Creme Fraiche, Dill and a squeeze of Lemon
Bagels, Cream Cheese, Thinly Sliced Red Onion and Bagel
Scrambled Eggs and Buckwheat Pancakes
Quinoa with Lemon Zest
Pasta with Capers and Cream Sauce

4 New Blends Added To Our Extensive Menu December 17 2014
We have unveiled 4 new blends available now online. First up is a duo of Passionfruit blends: Passionfruit Green and Passionfruit White. Passionfruit is just one of those things that makes your day. Passionfruit Green is Young Hyson based and the Passionfruit White has the beautiful base of our lovely Shou Mei. As is often the case, depending on your mood or maybe the season, both are great hot or iced.
Another unveiling is that of our Zesty Lemon Green, which has a wonderful "ka pow" of lemon added to our Young Hyson. This blend is great to snuggle up with by the fireplace or equally great iced in accompanying you through an art festival on a warm summer's day.
Finally, a Holiday blend that is great anytime but especially on cold days, this is our organic Holiday Blend Rooibos. Since it's Rooibos, no caffeine means anytime enjoyment. It's our Rooibos with cinnamon and vanilla hints. Serves well as a stand alone brew but try a little honey and a wedge of lemon for a yummy twist.
Now you can enjoy these in the store or anywhere else. And through the month of December, use the coupon code JOLLY and $10 will come off your order of $65 or more. Happy Holidays.
