Origin: Proprietary Blend of Black Teas from China, Botanicals from China and Italy, and Rooibos from Western Cape Province, South Africa. .
Flavor Profile: Round, full flavor, with an earthy, sweet, and smoky body. Lingering notes of lychee fruit, pine smoke, and citrus.
Tea Story: A scarlet herb and a black tea joined together for our gastronomic pleasure … A fortuitously created blend invented by one of our Samovarian leaders, Ester. A truly global mix of botanicals and flavors, antioxidants and artery scrubbing thearubigen. The best the world has to offer in scarlet infusions: black tea (known as red tea in China) and rooibos (the famous red bush of South Africa).
Only grown in the Cedar Mountain Area of South Africa’s Western Cape, rooibos is rich in minerals and antioxidants, and free of caffeine and made by gently roasting the tips of the rooibos plant, making the leaves a dark reddish-brown, and an amazing clear, red infusion.
Also known as “red tea,” or “red bush tea,” this herbal is pretty popular these days. A singular flavor that is slightly sweet with earthy, roasted notes of barley malt. This herbal is a native to South Africa and has been getting much publicity recently because of its abundance of anti-aging properties: antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins.
Samovarian Poetry: Sultry, sweet, smoky, and, yes, seductive. House blended black tea with the most silky mouth feel,lingering notes of lychee, pine smoke, and citrus.
Food Pairing: Scarlet Sable’s lightly fruity, earthy flavor best pairs with deserts that have a subtle flavoring. Deserts that feature melon or creams, and mild sorbets would all melt perfectly in your mouth with our Scartet Sable. Sweet breads like scones (with clotted cream and jam), or rooibos short bread cookies are ideal matches as well.
