Blackberry Mint is an English-inspired tea blend.
A bold, yet supremely smooth, black tea. Blended with sweet blackberry and a tiny hint of mint. Add a touch of honey or sugar to Blackberry Mint to draw out the fruit flavors. As served as a hot tea the fruits of blackberry and strawberry are strong. But, as Blackberry Mint cools the flavors sweeten and the mint notes come forth. Takes well to milk and sugar as a hot tea. Refreshing mint when poured over ice.
Depending upon tea leaf size, 1 oz of tea brews about 8-10 cups of tea.
Flavored Teas whether they be green, black, or other varieties of tea are all from the same camellia sinensis bush. The whole tea leaves blend and nestle with real fruits, herbs, spices. Essential oils or essence of flowers and fruits also make an appearance. This blending results in a change of flavor to the tea leaf. Creating a delightful and inspiring challenge to the taste buds.
Black tea is the well known and highly appreciated form of tea from the camellia sinensis bush. Black tea leaves are fully oxidized and produce a deep rich body, full flavor brew with a beautiful amber color. In contrast to green tea does not go through the oxidation process. Consistently green tea has a much quieter flavor of tea.
During the oxidation process, oxygen comes in contact with the enzymes inside the tea leaf. This contact produces wonderful deep flavors. The flavor of each black tea varies depending upon the region in which the tea grows, weather conditions, and then finally the preparation of the tea.
