Mr. Trombly’s Tea’s leaf aficionados hand-pack each jar of loose-leaf tea from 125 combinations of just-dried leaves, flowers, fruits, and herbs. Sippers peruse the store website’s virtual shelves, lined with white, black, and green teas, including many caffeine-free varieties. Customers pick the contents of their samplers and tea-of-the-month mug-dwellers, choosing from classic, earthy breakfast options such as assam, an immunity-boosting herbal mix, or spicy chai imbued with whispers of cinnamon and a palate-pleasing squawk of spicy ginger. Those seeking a tea not currently offered by the shop can request a specially made concoction to sate their craving. Like a mother’s unsolicited advice or a ride on the space shuttle, standard shipping is free of charge.
Mr. Trombly's Tea
The jars of hand-packed, loose-leaf teas lining the shelves of Mr. Trombly's Tea blossom with the fruits of countless orchards and wildflower fields. Mangos mingle with pineapple, orange, tangerine, and strawberries to create citrusy sips, and chamomile, peppermint, and marigold blossoms charm upset stomachs from the herbal section. Alongside black-, green-, and white-tea varieties, the steeping emporium also vends a roster of oolong teas imported from Asia. In the interest of rich and uncorrupted brews, the staff never mixes artificial flavors in with the plants. They also give customers control over their Tea of the Month Club deliveries—members can mix and match their own preferred bags for delivery, unlike with other tea of the month clubs, which only send out shredded calendar pages.
