Ceylon Black Tea
Turbinado, Dried Fruits, Citrus
Deep, rich tea that brews with a heavy body. Has a complex aroma & flavor with less pungent astringency than most black teas.
This Ceylon Black is grown in Sri Lanka. This batch is made from the youngest leaves nearest to the growing tips of the tea branches. We chose this lot because it is lighter, less tannic, less pungent, and more floral than most black teas. while still having the deep, rich, full-bodied characteristics of a great breakfast-style tea.
We recommend steeping three to four grams of tea (one to two tablespoons) per 8 to 10 ounce cup. Water should be between 205-208℉. Steep between three and five minutes.
Ceylon Black pairs well with a bit of cream and sweetener. For pairing with cream or sweeteners, we recommend using four grams of tea per 8 oz cup, brewed with 208-210℉ water for five minutes.
