Vanilla Almond Black
Black tea is most commonly produced in South Asia and Africa. It has a stronger flavor than most other teas and also has higher caffeine content. Black tea is prepared from the leaves of Camellia Sinensis and it is the most fermented of all teas. Black tea from Ceylon Tea is primarily produced using the orthodox method, where tea leaves are first harvested and then rolled to small pieces and fermented. The fermented tea leaves are dried using fire kilns. This process gives black tea its characteristic strong, full-bodied flavor and deep brown color.
Round tea bags are a recent innovation in tea bags. They look clean and easy to handle. We use pure white filter paper. Since we use only high quality tea you will not see any brown color on the tea bag.
Vanilla was completely unknown in the Old World until sixteenth century Spanish explorers who arrived on the Gulf Coast of Mexico found and gave it its name. The sailors took vanilla with them as they journeyed through Africa and Asia. In old medicinal literature, vanilla is described as an aphrodisiac and even as a remedy for fevers. While these purported uses have never been scientifically validated, it has been shown that vanilla does increase levels of catecholamines. While almonds are native to Iran, they have also been used in China as a key ingredient in a popular dessert when they are mixed with milk and served hot. In Indian cuisine, almonds are the base ingredient for pasanda-style curries. We have blended these two complimentary flavors with a light liquoring, high grown Pure Ceylon tea, to create a soothing blend that is a delicious breakfast or afternoon tea
