Take Thyme Today is a quaint tea shop located on South Queen Street in York. Here you will find over 100 loose leaf teas, tea accessories, and charming people. Take the time to explore, as there is literally a “world” of flavors and tastes for you to experience.
While many tea shops offer some loose leaf teas, Take Thyme is dedicated to showcasing all of the goodness loose leaf tea has to offer. Loose leaf tea is often considered to express the full extent of tastes of teas because there is no bag to restrict the flavors. Let’s take a look at what full bodied beauts Take Thyme has to offer.
Green Tea– Available in a variety of flavors with various origins such as Japanese, Chinese, and Moroccan, the green tea selection here is divine. While we won’t bore you with all the names of these teas (some of which you might not have any clue what they mean), these teas lend well for both hot and cold brewing. Green tea cannot be mentioned without a note about its health benefits. Delicate, light, and refreshing, any one of the loose leaf teas from Take Thyme will add a bit of brightness and comfort to your day.
Black Tea– For those that prefer the more heavily caffeinated tea troops, the black tea selection will be a delight. Go for the classic Ceylon, Darjeeling, or Irish Breakfast blend if you want more familiar tastes. If you’re feeling a bit more on the adventurous side, try the Kosabei blend from Kenya, which has a hearty malt and berry flavor. Give the Smokey Black or Russian Caravan a try for a touch of the outdoors. Cuddle up, as both of these teas have smokey notes reminiscent of a campfire.
Yellow Tea– Yellow tea? Yes, yellow tea does exist. However, the cultivation process is quite intricate, thus making yellow tea more difficult to find. Take Thyme is a rockstar tea shop though, so they have some! Their lone blend, known as Kwan Yin Sparrow Tongue, is yummy. This has an extremely light earthy flavor. Think of this tea as the close cousin of green tea. Give this yellow blend a try for a subtle change up to your regular cup of green.
Take a look around to see what infusers, kettles, mugs, and other goodies Take Thyme has to pair with your loose leaf gems. As coffee drinkers enjoy a fantastically roasted bean, tea drinkers fall for leafy blends that creatively showcase the areas of the world.
