SHORT AND STOUT TEA COMPANY is a modern specialty tea lounge located in Guilderland, NY. We specialized in fusion tea blends, which we like to call the “next generation of tea.” The next generation of tea is exiting, fun, and flavorful. It is a combination of traditional premium tea blended with vibrant herbs, tasty fruits or other fun flavors for the modern world. The next generation of tea is for any generation of tea drinkers, and by that we mean any age group or any level of tea drinking experience.

Mission: Our goal is to have people realize that tea and tea drinking can be fun and exciting! There is no set rule of making or drinking tea as long as you enjoy it. Anyone can enjoy tea. So, make it fun, make it yours, and enjoy!

This Plant Pigment Heals & Detoxes Better than All Others

Why is matcha so green? The deeper the green typically indicates quality due to umami richness, freshness and more health benefits. We all learned what what chlorophyll is in 4th grade, but here is a great article of what it does in our body.

If you aren't consuming foods rich in this plant pigment, you're missing out on one of the best detoxifying substances around … one that may even fight cancer.

In May of 1995, Ruth Patras realized that something was wrong with her 5-week-old daughter, Ciara. Initially happy and healthy, about a month after Ciara was born, the whites of her eyes started to turn yellow. Over the next few days, the color deepened, and her appetite diminished.

No, it’s not a four year old’s art imitating broccoli, it’s a shot of our seven different kinds of matcha. Not all matcha is the same. The right side is pale and as you can see didn’t spread very easily. This fall harvest is good for baking, but not drinking since it is pretty bitter and the heaviness of the powder will be felt on the tongue. The four in the left would all be considered “ceremonial grade”, which doesn’t mean all that much, but you can see the deep green and good spread so it will be lighter in the tongue and have more umami. Sorry for the long post, but I just wanted to share some photos from the shoot at our Matcha Bar.

We are very excited again to collaborate with Nine Pin in making this delicious tea cider. Enjoy!

After much anticipation, Earl Grey cans are back!!

Our Earl Grey cider is crafted with 100% NY apples, cold infused with Short and Stout Tea earl grey and aged on lemon peel. This cider is bright and floral, with tropical mango-like notes and an earthy citrus finish.

“Some of us may not recognize that the clouds and snow are part of what makes Upstate New York great. Complaining about winter is a waste of time. Instead, when it gets cold and cloudy, we recommend you crack open a can of Nine Pin Earl Grey Cider, and #EMBRACETHEGREY.” - Alejandro del Peral

Earl Grey cans are now available in the tasting room and at farmers markets. They will be available in retailers next week!

@westmerebeverage thanks Jeremy for introducing me to this fantastic #teabeer. Here is my take on it:
@flyingdogbrewery
English Breakfast Stout
Appearance: Expectedly dark, but the viscosity from the bottle acts more like an ale than a thick stout. Fine by me. The head is dark, but dissipates quickly with a roar. I’m hoping this indicates a crisp finish.
Smell: Crispiness continues, malty, smoky, I convince myself I smell tea.
Taste: This comes across as a dark ale, any sweet characteristic from the stout is soaked up from the astringent black tea. Somehow the 7.2 ABV is masked and doesn’t taste heavily alcoholic. The finish is so clean and the briskness leaves a satisfying dryness on the tongue. Urging me to have another sip. A really great tea beer from one of my favorite breweries.
