PORTLAND, Ore. — Bishop House, makers of high-end luxury housewares, today announced the availability of its coffee and tea line. This product line extension comes on the heels of the company’s inaugural line of elevated teaware, launched earlier this fall.
“With Thalia, we’ve brought a new level of sophistication to the world of hot beverages. The addition of coffee and teas to the Bishop House line allows us to offer a full experience to our customers,” said Brian Sunderland, founder of Bishop House. “We invest a lot of time, thought and money to enhance the enjoyment of the things we love, and it’s our mission to capture that philosophy for the tea and coffee drinking experience as well.”
Bishop House worked with Sterling Coffee Roasters and a top Portland-based tea blender for the new line.
For the coffee, Bishop House sourced three unique flavors, which can be purchased in 12oz whole bean bags for $18.
- No. 1 (A Medium Roasted Whole Bean Coffee) Composed of top quality Central and South American beans, the No. 1 is a medium-bodied coffee with savory notes of rich chocolate, caramel, and a hint of toasted nuts. Each batch is medium roasted, making it well-suited for every brewing style.
- No. 2 (A Light Roasted Whole Bean Coffee) Hand harvested from Guatemala, the No. 2 is fruit-forward with flavors of summer stone fruit and caramel that complement a rich and lingering finish. Sweet, silky, and sensual, this is the perfect coffee to start your day. Each batch is light roasted for drip and press alike.
- No. 3 (A Light Roasted Whole Bean Coffee) Grown high up in the Guji region of Ethiopia at 6,500-7,500 ft., the No. 3 is an earthy yet light-bodied coffee redolent of strawberry preserves with a hint of plum with floral overtones. Each batch is light roasted for drip and press alike.
Bishop House will also launch three classic tea blends.
- No. 4 (A South Indian Black Tea) This black tea comes from the Seethargundu Estate in the Nelliyampathi foothills of the Blue Mountains (Nilgiri) in Kerala, a state in Southern India. No. 4 is a light-bodied tea with a clean, fruity finish. Its low astringency and pleasant, non-cloudy appearance also makes it ideal for iced tea. $10 for a 4oz pouch of loose leaf tea.
- No. 5 (A Hand Rolled Chinese Green Tea) Jasmine Pearls are hand-rolled young Chinese green tea leaves, generally from Fujian Province. Fresh and sensual, the No. 5 offers a heady, floral nose and a rich, round flavor. This lovely tea can be steeped up to 3 times. $22 for a 4oz pouch of loose leaf tea.
- No. 6 (A Lemon Hibiscus Decaf Herbal Tea) Wind down the evening with our favorite decaf tea. With a refreshing blend of hibiscus and tart fruit, No. 6 delivers dry, light-bodied elegance with every sip. $10 for a 4oz pouch of loose leaf tea.
This fall, Bishop House launched its first line of elevated teaware. Each piece includes a handblown borosilicate glass bowl nested in a cantilevered stainless steel base plated in a choice of either 24-karat gold or pure silver. The glasses were designed by Portland-based artist James Owen.
