"I am easily satisfied with the very best." – Winston Churchill
One sip and you are magically transported to small beach town on the water, riding a bike with a wicker basket and talking like a Kennedy. Our blend is truly the taste of a weekend on the Cape. A rich, full bodied black tea with dried cranberries and orange peel and calendula flowers. Not only is it wonderfully comforting on a fall day brewed hot, it's outstanding and refreshing over ice on a hot summer afternoon by the sea.
Ingredients: Black tea, dried cranberries, dried orange peel, calendula flowers, natural flavoring.
Directions: Heat 6-8oz of fresh water (212ºF preferred) over 1/2 -1 teaspoon of tea. Steep 2-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Caffeine: Yes. If you are sensitive or have an allergy to caffeine, our suggestion is to skip tea and drink herbal infusions or rooibos.
HOW TO MAKE BLACK FLAVORED OR BLENDED TEA
Water: Fresh filtered water is preferred. Do not use distilled water. Depending on your area, tap water may contain chemicals or high levels of minerals which may affect the taste of the tea.
Temperature: Water temperature is just as important as timing. Black teas like water to be boiling (212˚F).
Time: Many guidelines suggest that black tea is best brewed for 2-5 minutes. The longer the brew time, the stronger, more robust and tannic the tea will be. (Don't feel bad if you like your black tea at 1-2 minutes!)
