    • Bright, coppery, and oh-so-malty, this tea is designed to be boiled in the masala chai method, so it can take milk, spices and sugar without losing its powerful, full-bodied taste
    • BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe) tea prepared as CTC (Cut, Torn and Curled), which is what you want for brewing a seriously strong cup of "builders' tea" or a pot of masala chai
    • Super high caffeine levels (80mg), with broken Assam showing some of the highest caffeine quantities of any black tea (coffee has around 95mg for comparison)
    • From Tingri, Assam near the Myanmar borrder, from the Keyhung Tea Estate. This is one of the largest tea gardens in Assam, employing over 3000 employees.
    • We are proud to ethically source our tea from this tea producer, as they take care of their employees and their families, providing free schooling, housing, hospitals and land for food cultivation for the 10,000 people living in Keyhung

How many cups of tea is in a package? How do I store my tea?

We recommend using ~1-2tsp (heaped) of tea for a standard mug, though you may want more or less depending on your taste, infuser and water temperature! Therefore...

  • 1oz of tea makes around 12-14 cups
  • 4oz of tea makes around 50-56 cups
  • 8oz of tea makes around 100-112 cups

Always store tea in a dark and airtight container or cupboard (light degrades the tea removing the tasty goodness!). If stored correctly, our teas will retain their taste for up to three years. After that they are still safe to drink, but won't taste of much! 

What does the ORAC score mean?

ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity and is a scale to gauge antioxidant units. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the antioxidant level. 

Allergen Warning:

Nut allergies: All of our products are handled, packed and processed in facilities that handles nuts and seeds. You can also check our ingredients list in the description tab of each tea or product to see if they have added/blended nuts, nut oils or other nut derived compounds.

Chamomile teas: A relatively low percentage of people are sensitive to chamomile and develop allergic reactions. People sensitive to ragweed and chrysanthemums or other members of the Compositae family are more prone to develop contact allergies to chamomile, especially if they take other drugs that help to trigger the sensitization (Srivastava, 2010).
