black elegance black tea

Origin: Satemwa Tea Estate, Thyolo Mountain, Malawi / Harvest: Spring 2014 / Elevation: ~3,000 feet

Why We Love It: Handmade with tremendous care, this black tea brews up into a complex and elegant tea. Hence our name for it, elegance. It's less oxidized than common black teas, giving it a smoother texture and a sweeter aroma. We taste chocolate covered tangerines with a splash of malty notes. Produced fully by hand, and grown naturally without the use of pesticides, this is an incredible black tea experience. 

We Taste: Chocolate, tangerines, cooking spices 

How We Brew It: Steep 4 grams in 8-12 ounces of 200º F water for 2 minutes.
