Coming from Assam, one of India's largest growing regions; this tea is an organic and fairtrade. Our offering comes from the single garden and is made with a nice proportion of tippy golden buds.
Our breakfast tea is full-bodied with flavors of tobacco, sweet malt, and dried fruit. This cup takes milk well, though it is not necessary, as it is naturally very sweet and generous with tannin in perfect balance.
Coming from Sri Lanka (Ceylon is the old English colonial name) this tea is a classic, full leafed example of one of the most famous of the English colonial teas. Medium bodied and fruity with a good, firm structure, good with a splash of milk or by itself.
The goldilocks of black tea, Yunnan Da Ye is just right. Made from the indigenous large leafed varietal known in Yunnan as "Da Ye", this tea is lightly hand rolled and contains a generous amount of golden twisted bud contributing to its balanced sweetness.
A gorgeous combination of finesse, rustic malty sweetness, and citrus fruit briskness, this tea is an example of the huge potential of the Yunnan. It is indeed a staff favorite, and a tea often highlighted when introducing our black tea.
Arriving to us from Africa's Rift Valley and grown from the same varietal as India's famous black teas of Nilgiri, this tea is produced with uncharacteristic care using traditional Orthodox methods from an area where many teas are industrial CTC grade.
Spicy, and fruity with a sweetness something like toast. Tannic but balanced; sure to be a favorite with lovers of strong, smooth tea.
