I was quite excited when I was given the chance to cup the Darjeeling Oolong. How could you not be when presented with their rich and silvery sheen? Just looking at their downiness, I knew it would be one of my favorites.
It just so happens that as I was cupping it, the first snowof the season was falling out my window. A new season was coming in and this iswhat I was thinking of as I took my first sip. Peculiar... It tastes like fall. Ha-ha The scent of freshly decaying leaves, a touch of the briskness thatstarts to enter the air, and the sweet aftertaste that lingers after something scrumptious. Later it humored me to discover the oolong was picked in August.
One thing I found particularly interesting about the tea once I steeped it was how elastic the leaves were. It was good to know I could use these leaves many more times.

If you haven't been in the tea house for a while, we are changing up some things!
First of all, the wall that divided the classroom to the main room of the tea house is gone! Completely, but we will be putting up a divider soon that will be used for room reservations and other special events.
Secondly, we have a new artist featured for this month in the back room and you can totally enjoy the amazing show as soon as you walk in the room.
We are also going to put in a tea bar eventually, but waiting for a buyer for the glass gallery display case. We are asking $250 OBO, so if you know anyone interested, please send them our way. We would love to put in the new bar as soon as possible.

We are very excited to announce that we have entered our Boreal Solace into the North American Tea Championships! This is our first time entering the competition and we hope we do well. My husband and I hand processed the tea and it took about 6 hours to make 2 oz of it. Obviously, it will be a limited edition blend at the store because there are not enough of the ingredients to make a lot of it.
The Boreal Solace is our 100% Wild Alaskan Herbal Blend. It is completely natural and no flavorings are added. We are already starting to run out of it in our store! It's made with hand picked and processed fireweed flowers & leaves, and low bush cranberries (lingonberries).
We are also selling many new tea accessory items in limited quanitities in the store. These include the owl tea sets and matcha sets. We hope to offer these and our bubble tea kits online for sale. If you are interested in these, just call us and we can ship them to you too. Our number is 907-457-1660.

For all of you fans of Sipping Streams in Boise, Idaho, we are coming to find you!
...that may not be exactly what we are doing... but we still hope to find you!
My husband and I were both graduates of Boise State and that is where I began my tea journey. Before we head to the World Tea Expo, we are stopping in Boise to see if there are any local business that would be interested in carrying or serving our teas.
If so, we want to hear from you! Write us and tell us where we should have it sold or served. And MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
Yes, that's right, we need your support so that we can have our teas in Boise. Go to your favorite gift shop or coffee shop or restaurant and let them know about us. Tell them about us and how you wished they carried our teas. We want to be in Boise and so do you
So Boisians Make Your Voice Heard! If you need business cards to hand out, write us and we will send them to you. Remember, you can always tell them about our website.
We hope to see Sipping Streams fans out there soon!
~Jenny and Steven Downer

This will be my second time going to the World Tea Expo and Steven's first time going. It will be good for him because he's getting certified by STI and will finally be receiving a well rounded tea education. Not that he doesn't know about tea, but he will be getting an official, well rounded education so that he will be able to teach more about tea.
Hopefully, we will be meeting more tea farm owners so that we can buy direct and get some leads on some yerba maté. But this year, the expo only has one maté seminar and Steven is the maté specialist for Sipping Streams. Maybe Steven will teach a seminar on maté at the World Tea Expo in the future.
Come and visit the tea house after May 8th and see what new goodies we bring back!
And remember to get your tea smoothies, made with all natural, real fruit and real tea from our loose leaf teas! No added sugars, completely natural! Get one today because it's getting hot outside!:cool:

From the Edo Period of Japanese history, the Kamakuri Ningyo mechanical
dolls are famous for being ahead of their time. Now you can have a
unique version of your own with the Kamakuri Tea Serving Robot DIY kit from Gakken.
Including all the pieces you need plus English instructions, the Tea Serving Robot is completely automated to carry your tea when placed on the tray, and then serve with a bow. It?s the original robotic doll, direct from Japan.
