Tea Specifics

Red (aka Black) Tea, Bergamot Oil

Harvest: Spring 2022

Mangjing Village, Jingmai Mountain, Yunnan Province, China

Elevation: 1200-1500 meters

Tree: Feral

Cultivar: Camellia sinensis var. Assamica

Loose leaf

Red (black) tea contains 40-60mg of caffeine per 8 oz cup. As the tea ages, the caffeine levels decline over time because light and leaf oxidation reduce caffeine. Thus, an aged red tea that is decades old may not contain much caffeine at all. If you have the willpower to resist drinking this tea and to instead store and age the tea, the taste profile will only deepen.

Tasting Notes

Naturally sweet red tea, orange bergamot aroma and flavor, hints of vanilla, citrus

Brewing Recommendations

Serving Size: 3-5g (1-2 tsp) per 150ml purified water.

Ideal Brewing Vessel: Glass tea pot with infuser; porcelain or ceramic tea pot with strainer

Steeping: Boil water to 212F/100C. Steep for 1-2 minutes before pouring the liquor into a tea cup.

Traditional Recipe: Add whole milk, sweetener, and a squeeze of lemon juice to brighten the flavor (don't be alarmed when the milk curdles from the citric acid).

Latte: Prepare as advised above and top with steamed milk and/or frothed milk.
