Pride of the Port
Pride of the Port®
Our finest blend of high-grown, whole-leaf black teas. The flavor is malty, floral, and complex.
In 1866, Joshua Lane Jordan, the great-great-grandfather of our tea buyer, set sail from Maine in the merchant ship The Pride of the Port. Sailing to ports in England, India and New Orleans, he transported commodities from America to the other side of the world and back again. When our tea buyer Eliot Jordan, set out to make a premium blend of black teas from China and India, he named it ‘Pride of the Port’ as an homage to these great tea origins – and to the long history of trade in tea.
Pride of the Port has been a Peet’s favorite for 10 years and we consider it our signature blend. Malty, floral, sweet and full-bodied, it’s a tea that you’ll always find something new in, yet you can always rely on for a rich and satisfying cup.
