Kilimanjaro Raisin Black Tea

Deep jammy notes sooth your senses, even before the water hits the leaves.
As the water permeates these leaves, hints of muscatel grapes greet you.
On the tongue this tea deep plum and grape jammy notes wrapped in a robust warming black tea robe.
Towards the end the sweetness of this jam lingers.

All the way from the slopes of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, this warming black tea is fresh as production finished in Autumn 2020.
Teas mellow with age, especially in the first few months, so it will become smoother as time goes on.

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.

This tea demonstrates just how comforting black tea can be.
