3 Steps to Choosing the Right Tea

With so many teas to choose from, there is something for everyone. Whether you know your way around teas and tisanes or you’re new to it all, this guide gives you some practical advice to help choose from Short and Stout’s wide selection.  Because who doesn’t get overwhelmed when presented with a host of choices?

Step One: Caffeinated or not. If you don’t mind caffeine, then your options include White, Green, Oolong, Black or Pu-erh tea as well as Yerba Mate tisanes. On the non-caffeinated side, your choices include decaf Black Tea, Herbal Tisanes, Fruit Tisanes and Rooibos.

Step Two: Flavored or Unflavored? Does an infusion of fruit or herbs sound good to you? A spicy chai or do you prefer a traditional straight Green or Black Tea?

Step Three: Consider whether you like bold or light flavor. Bold flavor and caffeine lovers will likely prefer black or Pu-erh tea or Yerba Mate, while those who prefer a lighter flavor will want to consider the White, Green and Oolong teas.  Caffeine free bold flavors include hibiscus based fruit tisanes and some Rooibos like our Bomb line which include infusions of pepper. Lighter flavors can come from other Rooibos and Herbal Tisanes.

The options are intriguing and delicious; just make sure you’re having fun, because choosing a tea shouldn’t be frustrating. At Short and Stout, It’s Time for Tea.
