FULL LEAF BLACK TEA

To the fine art of crafting American whiskey, we raise this toast of Assam black tea aged 1 year in a wet Westward Whiskey barrel, with intoxicating hints of cacao, brandied cherries, and ginger. Make it a double. Cheers.

There is a subtle whiskey hint after swallowing which makes it interesting. I could taste the hint through out the cup. Definitely not a breakfast tea.

It’s good, but I think the actual tea could be smokier and more intense. I loved one of your collaborative specialty teas you did a while back that may have been called Irish or Scotch whiskey, can’t remember. That was more what I was kind of hoping for.

Assam

Indian Black Tea

Assam tea is the biggest, brightest, richest and most astringent tea made. It is the backbone to breakfast style teas of nearly all brand and quality although it is also used in many blends for body and top notes. Assam is less floral and has more bread or biscuit-like flavor than other origins, and is often described as malty or coppery.

Assam Region

The Assam region is located in Northeast India, bordering Myanmar and China. At near sea level, this region produces teas that are full flavored, rich, and chewy with distinct characteristics of caramel and malt. The best teas from this region are plucked and processed in June and July, a harvest also known as the 2nd Flush.

Cacao Nibs

Dominican Botanical

Cacao nibs come from the Theobroma cacao tree and are one of the main raw ingredients used for making chocolate. Whole cacao beans are shelled, fermented and then broken down into chopped bits of cocoa seeds. These nibs then go through an additional roasting step, resulting in a more flavorful and less bitter tasting cacao nib.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is located on the island of Hispanolia in the Carribean, sharing its border with Haiti. While cacao, coffee and sugar combined to make up most of the country's economy thirty years ago, cacao now accounts for just 3% of the country's GDP. We source our cacao nibs during the main harvest between the months of April and July.

Pink Rose Petals

Indian Botanical

Pink rose petals are a favorite ingredient in our pantry. They provide sweetness and spice along with distinct floral qualities and are used to create complexity in a variety of our Signature Blends.

India

India is located in Southern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations (Indus Valley). It is a country rich in history, culture, religion, geography and so much more, and has been famous since ancient times as a source for herbs and spices that continue to be coveted around the world. Our pink rose petals come from several regions in India and are harvested in March.
