Tasting Notes: Malty, sweet, refreshing, and with that classic tannin bite, this breakfast blend is the perfect combination of several black tea intricacies. The unifying factor in these teas is their combined steep strength - at once straightforward, yet complex. The gently floral freshness from Chinese black tea begins the steep, transitioning to a crisp Ceylon freshness and sweet Assam malt. The linger is refreshing, with a mineral Darjeeling finish. Wonderful with milk and honey, or on its own.
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.
We invite you to experience our very unique twelve artisan-blended, loose leaf teas inspired by the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac – Rat, Pig, Horse, Goat, Rooster, Ox, Snake, Monkey, Tiger, Dog, Rabbit, Dragon.
We crafted the line of teas so that there would be something for every palate. The final result is four black teas, four green teas and four herbal infusions each conforming to some degree to the characteristics of the animal they represent.
