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!

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.

This is too beautiful not to capture at tea time. It reminds me of the frost I scraped off the car windows this morning. I can’t wait to have this Peach and Ginger Oolong warm me up.

Yesterday was a challenging day for Short and Stout and we have two groups of people to thank. Crossgates Mall Management Staff presented an opportunity for us to provide 250 boxes of macarons for the Tru/Homewood Suites Hilton Grand Opening. This undertaking was completed on time due to the dedication of several TEAm Members.

The morning that the order was to be delivered, we had a flood in the store. I’ll spare the details, but it was traumatizing in the moment. Crossgates Management armed with a professional Custodial Staff saved the day so we could go back and focus on the business at hand.

Thank you TEAm Members and Crossgates Management, we go together like tea and macarons.
