About Capital Teas

Capital Teas is a tea company based in the Washington, DC area. Capital Teas has retail tea stores in several states and also sells tea online. The company was founded in 2006 by wife-and-husband team Manelle and Peter Martino, and their first store was opened in Annapolis, MD in 2007, expanding first into the D.C. area and then nationally.

The company was rapidly expanded, but perhaps expanded overzealously; in July of 2017 it filed for a bankruptcy reorganization. The company was able to stay in business, but closed 10 of its 22 stores.

Picture of Royal Wedding Commemorative Tea

The aroma of this tea is a great blend of bright bergamot and heady roses with a creamy quality, this tea smells pretty. The aroma reminds me of summer blooming flowers and warm sunlight, I like the effect this tea's aroma has on my brain.

The taste of this tea is elegant, sweet and creamy with a vanilla quality tha...

An intriguing blend, very different from the other two examples of Rooibos chai that I've tried, the ones from Culinary Teas and from Wegmans. The final of three Capital Teas samples that my parents were given as a gift, which they let me try. Excellent with milk, not so much without.

Dry leaf smells intensely of ...

Wow. An exceptional tea. This was definitely the best breakfast tea I've ever tried, I'd go farther and say it was the best of any blended tea. This was one of three teas in a sampler pack that my parents received as a gift, and I'm glad they gave me some to try.

Dry leaf, which is a mix of different leaf styles ...

A disappointing blend that just didn't seem to work. This was one of three samples my parents received as a gift. I had the opportunity to sample them recently.

One of my mild pet peeves is when a company labels something "cherry blossom" and then it tastes like cherry fruit, rather than blossoms.

I opened the ...

Jan. 9th, 2014

This was something completely new and different, unlike any other tea, mate, or herbal blend that I've tried previously. An old review that I only am posting now; I sampled this at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival.

There's a slight kick from the chili. Keep in mind, I'm someone who LOVES spicy food, stuff ...
