Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Black Spiral Tea is a top-grade Golden Black Tea from Guangxi province, China. It consists of wonderful loose leaf black tea with, as its name suggests, lots of spirally golden tips. When brewed, it produces a liquor with full-bodied notes of honey, cocoa and sweet potatoes.
A very rare Tea indeed - one that we pack fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.
This infusion also contains a sizable amount of caffeine due to the processing of the leaf. Black Tea, as a rule of thumb, tends to have around 40-mg of this stimulant per 8-oz cup.
Our Black Spiral Tea is no exception, and is an excellent choice first thing in the morning. Most, however, choose it for its exceptional taste. Why not see for yourself? Buy and brew today.
