Wine is admittedly awesome. But there are times - nine in the morning, for example - when it isn't exactly appropriate to pour ourselves a glass of Pinot. For those moments, we'll happily turn to Vintage Teaworks' collection of wine-inspired teas. This Black Tea Merlot ($17), for example, uses hints of black currant and licorice to create a flavor profile inspired by one of our favorite reds. It's a booze-free way to tantalize our grape-loving taste buds.
