Golden Oolong Tea

August 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

Trader Joe’s Golden Oolong Tea boasts a bright, golden flavor profile to match its bright, golden color—and its pleasantly floral finish leaves an almost sweet, slightly toasty taste on the tongue. Stronger than most green tea but more mild than black tea, oolong is known for being exceptionally drinkable. Part of its drinkability stems from how it’s processed: oolong tea is made from tea leaves that have only been partially...

Matcha Green Tea Packets

Tea is important in Japan. It’s at the center of communal life, providing a key ritual (literally) around which friends can gather. Each fleeting meeting is viewed as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and thus, deeply cherished. The common Japanese idiom, Ichi-go, Ichi-e (meaning, “one time, one meeting”) provides the perfect description of this treasured teatime. We resonate with this value for meaningful human interaction—just visualize your last interaction with one of our friendly Crew! So, we’re doing our part to help facilitate more such meetings among friends. Toward that end, we think our new Matcha Green Tea is a great start...

Spiced Chai

December 01, 2016 in Category: What's New

Many of us have come to know Chai Tea as a hot, sweet, black tea beverage that is blended with milk and a variety of spices. In fact, the word Chai simply means plain ol’, regular “Tea.” This means that when you order “Chai Tea” in your favorite local café, what you’re really asking for is...

Oh My Guava!

November 23, 2016 in Category: What's New

OMG! is a popular exclamation in our culture. (By “culture,” we mean Trader Joe’s, and by “OMG” we mean, of course, Oh My Guava! tropical fruit and black tea beverage.) For us, it’s not just an exclamation—it’s a drink with an attractive and unique flavor profile. To make it, we gathered our guava purée from Colombia in South America. It’s fruit purée that’s certified organic and kosher by the proper authorities. It’s also certified DEE-licious, by us. The purée is blended with...

Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea

October 12, 2016 in Category: What's New

Moroccan mint tea is not so much a drink as it is a ritual, a sign of hospitality, an event in which to partake. In Morocco, hosts, shop owners, and teahouses take great care in the process of brewing mint tea and serving it to anyone who walks through their doors. Tea is cleansed in boiling water before steeping with mint leaves and sugar added to yield a sweet, flavorful drink. Such great care yields spectacular tea. Tea that we, in turn, wanted you to experience. With Trader Joe’s Organic Moroccan Mint Tea, we’ve simplified a few of the accustomed brewing steps, delivering full flavor in...

Peach Apricot Flavored Black Tea

September 23, 2016 in Category: What's New

Try to think of an occasion where tea seems out of place... Practically impossible, right? Tea is great in the morning, the afternoon, or at night. It can be found in formal tea ceremonies and casual cafés. It can be black, green, fruity, herbal, hot, cold, sweetened, unsweetened; so many options! With such a plethora of profiles to consider, deciding which teas to offer in our stores sometimes presents a challenge, but after introducing Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea for Mango Season, we decided we should keep branching out with more fruity, black teas. And that’s where Trader Joe’s Peach Apricot Flavored Black Tea comes in...
