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!

Can green tea boost your brainpower?

I think so.

Compounds found in green tea may enhance brain connectivity and even help treat symptoms of dementia and Down Syndrome, new studies have found.

Ahh, Curled Dragon, easily overlooked from our range of flavored teas. This is a fantastic black tea that is malty and rich like dark chocolate without the bitterness. This has been a near daily drink of mine for two years. As I refine my routines in 2020, I think there’s no reason to fix something that isn’t broken. @ Crossgates Mall

Wishing everyone a happy New Year. The Lounge will be closed on the 1st.

Japan’s unusual way to view the world

Did something not work out this past holiday season? Just say wabi-sabi.

It is a Japanese term that can be a mantra to release us from the unobtainable perfect expectations. It suggests that simple moments not overly controlled are the most pure and beautiful.

http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20181021-japans-unusual-way-to-view-the-world

Wabi-sabi offers a refuge from the modern world's obsession with perfection, and accepts imperfections as all the more meaningful – and, in their own way, beautiful.

Nice to take a break and enjoy some home comforts. Merry Christmas🎄

I have been coming to this shop for a few years and it’s like a second home! They provide you with a wide selection of teas, wonderful staff and a beautiful environment. Lots of great books to enjoy in the back while you sip!
A great way to prepare for a taekwondo belt test! We stop in for a pre test treat before every test. 😃

I am trying to contact you through your web-page - Contact Us. It was not working. So please provide you contact email address so that I can send message to you. Or you can reply my query on your product: Castleton 1st Flush Darjeeling Black Tea Hi, I am Darjeeling black tea lover and would like to find out: 1. which year is the Castleton 1st Flush Darjeeling Black Tea? 2. From your web-page: http://www.shortandstouttea.com/product/castleton-1st-flush-darjeeling/ , I was wondering why the image show a very dark color instead of light and clear with bright liquor for black tea. (unless the image is referring to Oolong). Regards, Kim
My 8 year old son loves going to Short and Stout. He loves it so much he made his own version out of Legos, complete with shelves of tea canisters and a colorful macaron display case. I love that the employees always make us feel welcome and are so helpful picking out new flavors of tea to try.
Great Times Union piece about the Crossgates expansion, Joyce and Matt!!
The language of "tea"! Passing this along from a friend's share :)
My daughter and I are addicted to the pork dumplings - so good!
