Black Lavender

Regular price $5.00

Style: Black

Origin: Blended at Westholme

Ingredients: Assam, Lavender, Oil of Bergamot

Description: Black Lavender is also known as a traditional French Earl Grey. Beautiful notes of aromatic bergamot combine perfectly with the fresh perfume of dried organic lavender blossoms. The tea is flavourful on its own, while also able to carry milk and honey, and steeps beautifully for iced tea on a hot summer day. A truly elegant cup, this tea pairs wonderfully with glazed lemon cakes and lighter sweets for an afternoon treat.

Tasting Notes: Steeping to a rich raw sienna tone, the aroma of lavender is elegant and refined beside the oil of bergamot. They complement each other just as much in the taste - the floral lavender brings subtle sweetness to the fresh citrus taste of bergamot on the mid-palate. The malt of a black Assam tea adds nice strength to the cup, and a bit of astringency to the zest in the cup’s linger.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
