Winters up north can be brutal. But sit yourself in front of a fire with a soft blanket and a mug of tea and that swirling blizzard can turn into something magical.
You find the fire and blanket to cozy up to, but we’ve got you covered on the tea.
DLH recently started carrying beautiful loose leaf tea from Hillside Tea, and it’s been a treat we can’t get enough of. Hillside Tea was born (you guessed it) on Duluth’s wonderful hillside. However, while the company is local, their teas certainly aren’t. They go to great lengths (and corners of the globe) to find quality-sources, flavor-rich varieties to create blends you’ll love.
The traditions and growing practices of tea are vast, but Hillside Tea seeks to share their magnificent teas with our community in a way that’s easy to understand and accessible to everyone whether to have deep tea knowledge or not.
However, whether you’re a tea connoisseur or a casual sipper, Hillside Tea will certainly expand your tea knowledge. They provide important details about who grows the tea, where those people live, and the process they have crafted to bring vitality to their lives. Through sharing this background, they hope to encourage a deeper appreciation for the human experience. Hillside’s philosophy, afterall, is that the flavor and variation in tea is a reflection of a unique natural world shaped by the human spirit. How dreamy does that sound?
So, tea lovers, stock up on your favorite tea blends this season. With abundant cups, we’ll get through this winter, cozy, soothed, and with a little more connection to the world.
