Best Black Tea

I discovered my love for black tea a few years ago, and I have enjoyed a variety. However, nothing has come close to the quality of this black tea. Pure delicious perfection.

Moody Contemplate

A full-bodied tea with several faces, Chiang Rai Black suggests itself a calm setting for contemplation. Allowed this, one enjoys from the prescribed 2-minute steep a creamy, milky mouthfeel with sweet, maple tones, and will find with 4 minutes a more forward profile of burnt sugar or molasses, yet pleasingly want of astringency.

Delicious Way to Start the Day!

Chiang Rai Black- must get

Absolutely divine. It's balanced in all the best ways. It's earthy, sweet, and lightly bitter. Chiang Rai Black is not what you expect, which is why it is so perfect.

I really love this tea so far especially in the morning! Not bitter at all. I can steep it a few times and the taste is consistent throughout all steeps! It’s got a bold taste, but also light. I would buy it again :)
