Twisted Tea House Blog

Quiet day on the Fourth of July

The tea house will be closed on the 4th of July all day for peace and reflection. Please come on in Tuesday for re-vitalizing tea vibrations.

New pricing for a couple things

The prices for the Goatherder and the Kid have changed to reflect higher costs for nuts and fruit. Still the most bumpin appetizer platter in town.

6/20 OMG, Indian Spinach Croquettes!

One of my favorite specials is being served today. Lot’s of garlic Spinach and onions in a little chickpea flour pancake. Reminiscent of the snacks you’d get from the vendors on a train through the foothills of Darjeeling. Comes with pita, dipping sauce and a green salad for a full meal experience.

This may be the best Thai Coconut curry I have ever made. We’ll be serving it today and tomorrow while supplies last.

6/8 Swanky Shincha in our midst

This Shincha is a first crop, young bud sencha from the Kagoshima Prefecture, one of Japan’s premier tea growing regions where the rich volcanic soil produces incredible teas. Hand picked and rolled into long thin leaves, with a soft taste like fresh spring green tea and a noticeably sweet aroma reminiscent of wild orchids. Shincha’s key characteristic is its refreshing and invigorating scent of new leaves. With a higher content of amino acids (L-Theanine) and vitamin C, giving it full-bodied flavor and sweetness. L-theanine is linked to increased alpha brain wave production and is considered a natural antidepressant and stress reliever. Japanese studies link consumption of L-theanine with strengthening the immune system. Check it out for yourself while our supply lasts. $8/pot or $10 oz for home brewing.

6/1 Back deck blues

If you’ve been here recently, you might have noticed that our back deck is ripped up on the left side. Many are the hopes and dreams that this temporary situation repairs itself on the kind day (hopefully in the next couple of days!) that our workmen decide that all is well with the under-roof and we get our shiny little patio put back together again. Until then, I may have to decorate the construction with some prayer flags and call it good.

New Sandwich special

6/1. In celebration of this hot June day, we made a cool sandwich…the Shanghai Pita. It’s stir fried tofu, shitake mushrooms and onions on a pita with Asian slaw. Filling and energizing

Friday May 27: Today’s Special

Southwestern Blackbean Salad. It’s vegan and delicious!

Holy roof!

5/17 bout 3 PM

It’s raining again and we get to experience this at the tea house form an insider’s perspective….buckets catching dripping, cascades of water in about 8 different locations. It’s the one over the projector that really get’s to me cause it could mess up a lot of electronics.

on a cozier note, the ambient temperature here is 75degreees and there’s some chill old school reggee on the stereo making this a comfortable place to relax and have some tea away from the rain (minus the spots where the buckets are)

New digs


In case ya’ll haven’t heard there’s a new fantastically hip dish on the menu. The Zen wrap. It’s Organic twin oaks tofu mixed with miso and hijiki and other flavorful items, topped with some zingy carrot/ginger dressing and rolled up in a Teff wrap (which is a gluten free grain from Ethiopian fare) Check it out and let us know what you think.
