Introducing Cherry Allure CRAFTea to enjoy for a limited time

Cherry Allure White Tea SpritzerSpring has officially sprung here at Short and Stout! Bring on the blue skies, blooming flowers, and delicious iced teas. To celebrate the beauty and sanctity of our natural world, we have crafted a commemorative iced CRAFTea inspired by Earth Day (April 22nd).

Cherry Allure is a refreshing drink appealing to both the eyes and the taste buds. Using our Cherry Blossom white tea, we add lemon, cherries, and sparkling water spritz for pizzazz. The result is a sweet, tart, and fizzy treat perfect for savoring outdoors in the spring sunshine.

Why Cherry Blossom? Cherry blossoms are steeped in cultural history and symbolism. The Japanese have long associated this special flower with spring’s arrival and nature’s ephemerality. “Hanami” is a centuries-old springtime custom dedicated to appreciating what cherry blossoms represent—the beauty of impermanence—and many uphold the tradition by feasting and drinking under cherry blossom trees.

We recommend pairing Cherry Allure with an Orange Blossom or Lemon macaron.

Happy Earth Day from Short and Stout! Get outside and enjoy the beauty that is all around you.
