Caffeine content: High
Origin of tea: Assam, India
Available as: 100g loose leaf / 15 tea bags
Taste notes: Smooth, fruity and balanced. Makes an intense, dark brew. Reminiscent of a rich, indulgent plum cake.
Serving Suggestions: Pairs well with cheese toast, carrot cake, and dark chocolate desserts. We like it hot, without milk and with a hint of sweetener. Makes a great base for cocktails and mocktails.
Add 1 teaspoon or 1 tea bag per cup (150ml). Always pour hot water (100°C) on the tea leaves and not the other way around. Steep for 3-4 minutes. All our teas in tea bags or loose leaf can be rebrewed. Just add hot water and steep for longer than the first steep
Storage advice: Store in the foil pouch in the tea tin or transfer to an airtight container, kept in cool dark place.
If storing in the refrigerator/ freezer, pack in small completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for the tea to reach room temperature to prevent any condensation. Each packet should be used within a week after opening.
