PBT Journey

  • What is Blueberry Tea?

    This tea offers all the flavor and character of ripe, plump berries, captured in 100% all-natural flavoring oil.  Crafted with our proprietary blend of Ceylon black teas, this is truly a cup worth writing about.  Amazing hot or poured over ice.  Sip into some blueberry perfection.
  • What is Maple Tea?

    Created from sap harvested from the mighty Sugar Maple tree, Maple season begins when winter's cold weather gives way to the warmer winds of spring.
  • What is Ice Wine Tea?

    Ice Wine is typically made of Vidal grapes, normally used to produce a table wine.  It has a relatively thick skin enabling the grape clusters to withstand the elements.  Ice wine is difficult to produce - not only do the grapes have to withstand the elements - but the crows and other birds find Vidal grapes particularly tasty.  After the "fight" with the elements and birds, the grapes go through weeks weeks of fermentation followed by a few months of barrel aging. 
  • What is Peach Apricot Tea?

    What makes the fruits go so well together?  Their delicate, intensely sweet flavor profiles.  The characters of both fruits together blend into a harmonious explosion of citrusy goodness.  And what makes them blend so well with a high grown Ceylon tea?  The answer to that question is the natural acidity and astringent qualities of both.  Peach and apricot - 4000 years of history can't be wrong! 
  • What is English Breakfast Tea?

    Afternoon tea was the invention of Anna, wife of the seventh Duke of Bedford.  At the time custom dictated only two planned meals per day: a hearty breakfast and a late evening dinner.  Anna in an effort to ease the "sinking feeling" began instructing her servants to prepare tea and cakes in the late afternoon.  Thus began a fashionable habit which still exists today.

  • What is Earl Grey Tea?

    The secret lies in the fact that we never use flavoring oils to mask poor quality teas.  Rather, we select a premium blend of black teas hand harvested from some of Ceylon's premier gardens.  To this we add 100% all natural flavoring oils (in this case, oil of bergamot)  and roll it all in stainless steel drums until each leaf is thoroughly saturated and coated in luscious flavor.
