Maya Angelou's Black Tea Blend
The brewed cup is a delicately balanced blend with a reddish amber color and a fruity, heady, sassy taste.
The combination of pineapple, vanilla and orange dance playfully on the tongue. The addition of cloves brings a new depth to this taste, while the hibiscus adds to the fruity flavor and adds a reddish tinge to the amber cup. There is a mild astringency and a lingering fruit/spice taste on the tongue.
Ingredients: Black teas from China and Sri Lanka, hibiscus flowers, orange peel, cloves, flavors and orange blossoms.
Directions: Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes
1 oz of loose tea makes approximately 10-12 cups of tea
