Regular price $6.00

Style: Black, Decaffeinated*

Origin: Blended at Westholme

Ingredients: Decaffeinated Nilgiri, Oil of Bergamot** (certified organic, cold-pressed, 100% oil of bergamot from Calabria, Italy)

Description: A great choice for those who delight in a cup of Earl Grey but need an option with limited caffeine. Decaffeination is achieved via the organic swiss water method. Nilgiri, which translates to Blue Mountain, is one of India’s well known tea districts. Nilgiri tea is known to be crisp, aromatic, and flavourful. This tea is grown at the Korakundah Estate which sits at one of the highest elevations in the Nilgiri region. This estate was stablished in the 1930’s, and the first in the area to obtain Organic Certification. A truly Italian organic, oil of Bergamot from Calabria provides the classic Earl Grey ingredient, cold-pressed from the rind of the bergamot orange, or Citrus bergamia. A tea to be enjoyed any time of day!

Tasting Notes: An auburn-gold liquor and earthy aroma invokes the senses. This decaffeinated black tea is uplifting and full of rich flavour (it is certainly no wimpy decaf!). From the first sip the tea layers in gentle astringency with copper and dry woodsy tones, and even a light floral note. As you sip the flavour further develops and covers the palate. An aroma lingers in the cup like freshly cut wood. The crisp bergamot citrus compliments the earthy Nilgiri and pulls even greater depth out of the tea flavour.

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

Organic

*Please note that the decaffeination process does leave trace amounts of caffeine. If you have an allergy, or are highly sensitive to caffeine, a herbal tisane could provide a completely caffeine-free alternative.
**Please note that our Earl Grey Blends contain pure Oil of Bergamot. They are therefore not suitable for those with allergies to citrus fruits.

 

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.
