Duke Cardiff's Black Tea Blend
George, a customer in our retail store, came in one day and asked us to duplicate a blend for him that he used to enjoy and could no longer find in the US. After hearing his description and tinkering around, we unveiled this blend. Duke Cardiff is a hearty, well-rounded blend of China and Indian teas that has an amber cup with a light currant after-taste. George still comes in to purchase Duke Cardiff blend, as do many of you now. We’ll never forget the day George came in for his tea wearing a kilt. He’d just come from a parade in the next town where he had played his bagpipes. With a little urging from us he treated us to a private show, much to our delight. As he headed off to his car, still playing his pipes, we all took a moment to reflect on how lucky we are to have such amazing customers.
If you haven’t tried George’s tea yet, give it a try. We think once you do you’ll add this blend to your favorites list.
Brew tea at 212ºF – steep for 3 minutes.
