Show Description

This tea has a slightly fruity and sweet taste.

Extra Info:

When British tea planters first ventured into the Assam Valley in the 1850s to establish tea plantations, they faced many difficulties, especially with the wildlife. They had to contend with marauding elephants, king cobras, and troops of thieving monkeys. But the most feared of all was the mature Bengal Tiger who could kill with one swipe of a powerful paw. The early planters added fruits and spices to their often consumed black tea to ward of hunger and thirst. The fruits provided vitamin C; the cinnamon was added as a digestive. Milk and sugar may be added if desired.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Ingredients:

Black tea | Calendula and Sunflower petals | Mango, Papaya, and Ginger pieces | Lime leaves | Natural flavors,

Origin:

Tea: Dimbula, Sri Lanka and Assam, India
Blended: Canada

I really enjoyed this tea! It does not give any artificial tastes like Teavana would sell. The tea is well worth the price. I do not detect any cinnamon/lime flavor. It tastes like a tropical tea, like I can taste a little of the mango and a lot of the papaya. Also a little of the marigold/ balances it out. 9 out of 10 in my book

This is one of the most delightful black teas I've ever tasted. None of the flavors stand out, but all blend nicely to a bright, clear, light flavor that wakes you up with more than caffeine.
