Uncle Iroh Tea Blend
Brand new Uncle Iroh Tea blend inspired by one of your favorite characters from Avatar: The Last Airbender
Fans of the anime series Avatar: The Last Airbender may already be familiar with the beloved Uncle Iroh and his love for tea. For those who aren’t, when Iroh and his nephew Zuko arrived in the Upper Ring of Ba Sing Se, Iroh took over the local tea shop. Uncle Iroh, a tea drinker known for quotes like “Sick of tea? That’s like being sick of breathing!” and “sharing tea with a fascinating stranger is one of life’s true delights”, knew the shop needed to be revamped and was up for the challenge.
Before Uncle Iroh came around the tea shop wasn’t doing well. It was run down and ignored by those living in and around the city. Iroh was determined to bring this shop back to life. He started by renaming the shop to “The Jasmine Dragon”, a dramatic and poetic name that he loved the sound of. It was his mission to create a tea shop where the tea drinkers felt at home. He wanted customers to leave their worries at the door, and simply enjoy fine teas.
Uncle Iroh has become a fan favorite of the series because of his laid-back sense of humor and his ability to appreciate the little things life has to offer. Nothing makes him happier than a good conversation paired with a nice cup of tea.
Tea is something that Iroh has always been knowledgeable with. He knows what type of tea will help ease another character. His ability to offer tea with a side of wisdom/advice helped him make deep friendships over his time in the series. He was even able to find peaceful ways to interact with enemies.
As everyone in the Upper Ring of Ba Sing Se grew to love Uncle Iroh and his delicious tea, all of us watching the series grew to love Iroh as well.

The led to using a simple green tea and jasmine base, infused with notes of lychee. The result? A calming, subtly-sweet green tea blend that’s best enjoyed with good friends and great conversation.

Green tea is a staple for all tea lovers. But the jasmine and lychee notes in the Uncle Iroh blend adds a nice floraly taste to this classic beverage. A little bit of honey goes a long way if you want a sweeter touch to your tea. The honey flavor pairs perfectly with the taste of jasmine blossoms and green tea leaves. An after dinner go-to? Certainly!
How To Drink Uncle Iroh Tea
The most calming way to enjoy Uncle Iroh tea is served hot. Allow your tea leaves to steep in hot water for 3-4 minutes (or use our interactive tea steeping calculator) to get the best flavor. Enjoy this tea in one of your favorite surroundings, possibly with someone you can share a delightful conversation with. This is how Uncle Iroh would enjoy it.
If you prefer a cold brew or iced tea, make sure you double the amount of leaves used when you steep the tea. As you pour the tea over ice, the ice will water it down to create an enjoyable flavor to drink. Homemade iced tea is a much healthier option than store bought sweet tea. It is all natural and full of antioxidants and vitamins.
TLDR: Inspired by Zuko’s uncle from Avatar: The Last Airbender, this tea’s reputation for being a calm, conversation starter is a reflection of Uncle Iroh himself. Iroh had a reputation for making the best tea you could find, so it was natural to create a blend using his favorite ingredients and tastes. The results? Beyond what we could have ever imagined.
Uncle Iroh is one of the most calming tea blends you will find.
To bring the taste of Jasmine Dragon to your home, The Tea Club is introducing this new tea that Uncle Iroh would approve of. It will quickly become one of your favorite new green teas. Leave your worries at the door with a cup of Uncle Iroh tea.
