Decaf English Breakfast Black Tea

$ 5.29




  • Delightfully fresh fruity apple character with delicious cinnamon notes. Brewing a pot of this tea is like baking an apple pie in a teapot – an absolutely delicious tea.
  • Decaf English Breakfast Tea 

    Cup Characteristics: A full-bodied tea with some fruity notes.

    Infusions: Cup tends bright, consistent with high quality tea.

    Ingredients: Decaffeinated black tea.

    Simply put, this is a wonderful tea. The blend is based on FP leaf from Sri Lanka‟s Dimbula region, harvested high up in the mountains above Colombo. Our supplier is one of the country‟s premium growers and has been supplying us with tea for decades. For a decaf, the cup is decidedly self-assured with lovely floral notes, medium body, balanced astringency and long finish. (The cup is so good it has actually fooled professional tea tasters into believing it was untreated.) A wonderful all-day breakfast tea that opens wonderfully with milk.
  • Hot Tea Method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-5 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
    Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
