Created over 15 years ago and previously sold as a private label tea blend for the Elizabethan Club of Yale University, we are happy to offer this blend as our Victorian Afternoon tea. This original black tea is a vibrant blend of Indian, Sri Lankan and Formosan teas, and it is complemented by a slightly smoky character. When brewed, it yields a dark, reddish cup with a sparkling liquor.
Brewing Tips: The Victorian Afternoon tea blend should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. It should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
