Turmeric Ginger Organic Rishi Tea – a confetti of herbs,

green grassy slivers, bright yellow roots, orange peel, and golden seeds all
wrapped up in a silky triangle pouch.

​The smell was at once spicy, savory, and sweet – like a steamed carrot. The
liquid steeped to a cloudy mustard yellow, an exotic color to find in ones tea cup.
I took a sip and was met with an explosion of flavors: bright licorice sitting on top
of numbing spice, bitter lemon, and some extra tooth from the ginger. It wasn’t
particularly sweet, or bitter after all – which was perfect, because somehow, the
sweet, sour, savory, spicy, and bitter were perfectly balanced. The first sip and
every sip after felt like an electric shock of flavor…but a soothing electric shock?
Have I discovered the tea version of shock therapy? The world would be so much
better if everyone replaced their cup o’ jo with this stuff. The tisane that slaps you
awake, but in a good way.

Flavors: Carrot, Ginger, Grass, Lemon Zest, Licorice, Spicy

“A woman is like a tea bag- you don’t know how strong she is until she’s in hot water.”

Double Cup is the steamy dream of a feminist tea lover – bringing sexy back to tea. Far gone are the days of stiff Victorian restraint, let the 1950s housewife toil in the kitchen, it’s time for women to serve themselves. Double Cup Teas is two heaping cups of self love: One part artistry, one part activism.

We’re interested in teas as diverse, bold, and complex as the women who drink them.
