Kilimanjaro Black Magic
What is Black Magic?
You are in for such a treat with this tea, so excited to finally have more Tanzania teas in stock.
Deep jammy notes greet your senses, even before the water washes over the leaves.
As the water unravels these tea leaves, hints of toasted raisins greet you.
On the tongue this tea offers these sweet raisin jammy notes wrapped in a gentle warming black tea robe.
Towards the end the sweetness of this jam lingers, leaving you craving more. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
All the way from the slopes of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, this warming black tea is fresh as production finished in April 2023.
Teas mellow with age, especially in the first few months, so it will become smoother as time goes on.
Which after tasting it is somewhat surprising as it is such and incredibly smooth tea already.
Always interesting to discover how the taste profile of teas change, a journey worth experiencing.
Our airtight foil lined packs are a great container to store the young tea in as it locks in the aromatics within the leaves.
Also keeps out any strong smells which can impact the tea leaves.
Black Magic demonstrates just how comforting black tea can be.
