Black Mint

Regular price $5.00

Style: Black

Origin: Blended at Westholme

Ingredients: Organic Black Pekoe Teas from India and Sri Lanka, Fennel, Peppermint

Description: In parts of Northern Africa and Western Asia, peppermint is often added to black and green teas to add a refreshing crispness to the infusion. We have also added a touch of fennel to our blend, for an extra bit of sweet complexity. This daily mélange is both invigorating and uplifting; a cool and enlivening black tea that is excellent hot or iced.

Tasting Notes: Smooth and fresh on the nose, the cup is a rejuvenating blend of soothing peppermint and gentle natural fennel sweetness on the palate and tongue. These sweet, warming flavours meet the dark malt of black tea from Assam, and the crisp citrus notes of a tea from Sri Lanka. The warming, flavourful linger of the peppermint remains on the palate, complimenting the balanced astringency of the tea.

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.
