Edith Wharton's Black Tea Blend
For our Edith Wharton blend we pay homage to her descriptions of the undercurrents rippling through fashionable society.
We have a refined, high-grown Darjeeling black tea with a little passionfruit and citrus flavor, a dash of spice and lovely flower petals to create a taste that is smooth and elegant.
Perfect for an afternoon tête-à-tête.
Ingredients: Darjeeling black tea, organic ginger pieces, mallow blossoms, marigold petals and flavoring.
Directions: Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes
1 oz of loose tea makes approximately 10-12 cups of tea.
In unprecedented times, we need to find our zen and appreciate the little things in life that still make us feel whole and good.

“It’s half past three, everything must stop for tea”, there isn’t anything more British than their love for tea and the customs that follow it. There really isn’t a problem or an emotional issue that can’t be resolved with a spot of tea. Their quaint tea drinking traditions are a core part of Britishness and has its roots in time honored customs steeped in history.
Tea and Brits are a just like peaches and cream – a good fit, made perfect. There are quite a few English tea traditions, but we want to share a few quirky and interesting ones.
