Black Tea - Tradesman Tea - 4 oz loose tea - Two Black Teas perfectly blended to make a robust strong flavor!
Tradesman Tea is a full-bodied black tea blended with Assam and Ceylon. As Tradesman is steeped, the leaves open to the size of a dime, giving a bold malty, slightly fruity morning lift.
The black tea base is a combination of Assam and Ceylon (named from the regions they are grown). The tea leaves are grown and dried to remain whole. As you steep the tea in hot water, you will be able to view the leaves opening back up to release the tea flavors.
The tea leaves come from plantations in Sri Lanka and India.
